Default 12 FG Delta programming

Hi!

I checked the search function, but got no result on it. My problem is as follows: I am trying to programm a Eurofighter model with 2 Servos working as Aileron and Elevator. I chose the Glider programm with Ailvator for those flying surfaces - now, I cannot get the aileron trim to work. The trimming for the Elevator function works properly though.

Can anyone help me out? Flying is really difficult with no Ail trimming

Thanks [8D]

Normally, you'd use one of the "Flying Wing" setups. That will combine elevators and ailerons properly, trims and all. Ailevator is intended to use 2 elevator servos in 3D-types of models, where some aileron action is desired. Aileron trim doesn't affect the ailevator function.

Bax, having just done this with a slope model, I found that by far using ailevater was the easiest way to set the throws for each surface, but like above the ail trim doesnt work. I simply used a Pmix with T1 as the master, one of the aileron channels as a slave, turned on the link and gave it a small mix percentage. Works perfectly fine and I have full and easy control over throws.

And that's another way to do it. There are quite a number of ways to do the same thing in the 12FG, 12Z and 14MZ transmitters...they are that versatile!
