Default Futaba 6XAPS Dual Elevators?

Does anyone know if the 6XAPS supports dual elevators? I have installed S3004 each for individual elevator segments. I am not keen on adding any extra on-board gadgets to sync the servos. So can my radio support this?
Thanks, Gyri.

I am not 100% sure of this but think that your radio does not support this. You can use one servo per aileron without any problem but no dual elevator servos.

gyri,
Your radio cannot support it fully. You CAN do a programmable mix, but your elevator trim will effect only the elevator servo, not the 2nd servo. It also adds some other complexity and risk of turning off your 2nd elevator servo in flight if you bump the elevator dual rate-turned-mix-switch. Definitely not a good choice.

If you need a radio to properly support twin elevator servos, consider finding a used 8U inexpensively, or making the jump to the 9C. It will support this properly, including having trims work both servos and lots of other great goodies.
