Setting up ailevator and rudder on vectored thrust with 18MZ
 
I have a turbine mig-29 with vectored thrust. I need to mix the aileron and elevator on the elevator, then have a mix for the rudder/aileron/elevator on the two vectored thrust nozzles. Each has two servos.

A program would be outstanding, or a step by step.

Thanks

Actually, we don't have either. What you want to do is diagram the interactions of the different channels. Then, you'll have a map that will tell you how the mixes should interact. Just remember, you're mixing FUNCTIONS, not channels. That should help a lot.

For the aileron-elevator mixing, think "tail type". If you select the 2-elevator tail type, then the mixing is taken care of. You adjust it in the Ailevator mixer. Then just run the nozzles in parallel to the dual elevator servos, either by using a "Y" harness for each elevator channel, or by duplicating the two channels, so that you'll have two "Elevator" channels, and two "Elevator2" channels.

You'll need to use two mixes and two more channels for the rudder->nozzle mixing. Take two aux channels and name them "Nozzle 1", and "Nozzle 2". Now make one mix rudder->nozzle1 and another mix rudder->nozzle2. Adjust the amount of mixing so that the nozzles move the way you need them to go when you move the rudder stick.

Set a switch to turn the mixes on and off if you need that function. If they're on all the time, you don't need to assign a switch.
