Default KE Programming on a 9C

Howdy all.

Dumb question coming....

I have a Vector Flight 66" Extra that pulls to the belly when flying knife-edge. I've heard about programming this out using the TX, but I want to know more about it before I give it a try. I have a Futaba 9C.

I assume that I would program the TX so that some up elevator gets dialed in with rudder input. Is it usually a proportional mix? More rudder = more elevator?

I assume that this would be a mix that I turn on prior to making a KE pass, then turn it off when I'm done right?

What are the steps required to program this type of mix?

Thanks for your input!

I would recommend that you use the point mix instead of a linear mix. The point mix will allow little to no elevator until you reach the half way point then add mix during the remainder of the elevator travel.

start w/ 5% up elevator mix and go from there.

"I assume that this would be a mix that I turn on prior to making a KE pass, then turn it off when I'm done right?"

I leave my mixes on all the time with no problems.


"What are the steps required to program this type of mix? "

you might want to read the manual, that's what the rest of us did.

Read the manual?!?!? Kidding right?

I spend my life doing tech support....sermonizing to people to get them to do just that RTFM!

Just thought someone would have done it and have the process memorized as the examples in the manual are fairly generic.

Go into programming mode and get to a PMIX that you aren't using.

1. Make the rudder master and the elevator slave.
2. Link OFF
3. Start at 5% mix as suggested above.
4. Program to a switch you aren't using.
5. Test w/switch on and off to make sure it behaves as it is supposed to.

Also as suggested above, I leave my mix on all the time with no adverse affects.
