RDS 8000 problem
Ok, I have been able to figure out almost everything in this hobby until now. This is not my first plane. I have checked everything that I can think of, so now I'm stumped.
I am switching one of my planes from Futaba to Airtronics. It's set up with dual aileron servos without a Y connector. Simple stuff, two channels, worked fine with Futaba. I have the servos set up exactly like the Airtronics instructions show on page 45. I have the flaperon function set as ACT.
When I move the aileron stick to the right, both ailerons go down. Move it to the left, they both go up. I have the flap switch set towards me and the ailerons are neutral. I move the switch to the middle, and the ailerons move as though the plane were banking right. Move the switch to the last position, and the ailerons bank more to the right. So basically, the right side aileron servo is turning the wrong direction.
I even tried a different Airtronics receiver, with the same result.
Ok, I have to tell you, as I was typing this sentence "So basically, the right side aileron servo is turning the wrong direction" it occurred to me what the problem was. I kept thinking the switch and the stick had somehow changed places. Man, do I feel like an idiot.
I went ahead and posted this since I had it all typed out, and maybe somebody will have the same problem. But the rest of you should get a good laugh on me.
