Default Flaperons with T28D trojan and Specktrum DX7 instructions...

Hi all,

Iwrote up some instructions on how to program the Spektrum DX7 for flaperons using the stock AR500 setup in the Parkzone T28D. Because the T28DTrojan BNFcomes with an AR500 receiver which only has an available gear channel and no auxillary channel, Ihad to do some channel mixing. This was my first real venture into programming myDX7 and thoughtI'd share. Please let me know your feedback.

Just wanted to follow up on this: while these instructions will work for you to program flaperons as expected, I was advised by someone with a lot more R/Cflying experience then I have that flaperons on this style of plane can and most likely will introduce tip stalls.

Yup. That was going to be my feedback.

I programmed spoilerons into the T-28 (opposite of Flaperons, the ailerons both move "up" which spoils lift and causes it to sink.) Never had a tip stall problem, and helps to get steeper glide paths.
