Default RE: FLAPE Function


You did not indicate what transmitter you are using; however, if you have an RD8000 or RDS8000 maybe this will help. If you have made FLAPE ACTive in the etc menu, then channels #2 (Left Aileron) and #6 (Right Aileron) are your Aileron channels. The three position switch located on the top right of the transmitter controls the Flaperon function. When the switch is all the way towards you the Ailerons should be neutral. When pushed in the half position away from you the Ailerons should deploy down to the half Flaperon position. When pushed all the way from you then you have full Flaperons. The amount of Flaperon deflection is determined by the Channel #6 EPA. The amount of servo throw for both Channel #2 and #6 Aileron servos is determined by the Aileron Channel EPA. Servo reversing is controlled by the individual Aileron channels. If per chance you have a model with actual Flaps as well as Ailerons and want to use the 3-position switch to control the Flaps, then you must make FLAPE INH, and use a "Y" harness for both Aileron servos. If you need any further information , please call us. AIRTRONICS TECHNICAL SUPPORT 800-262-1178
