Default Futaba 9C

Now for the Question... I want to program my 9C with two rudders and have them work together. Then when I flip a switch I would like then to act as airbrakes. I have tried the programing many times and it gets close but that's it, maybe I worked on too many plastic models before RC planes. Can anyone out there direct or help with some step by step instructions? It is amazing the work I've done in the past as a firefighter and paramedic the drugs and the tecniques to save lives and I can't program a radio. I need some expert help.

Lawrence, which plane are you programming ? What's your rudder setup like ? Are you using two separate servos with a "Y", or two separate channels ?

Sounds easy enough, program one mix so that rudder (4) and AUX1 (7) are master & Slave with this switch in one position (down). Then program another mix where Aux1 is offset. A third mix where rudder is offset. But the offset mixes with the switch above in the up position.

WHen you do this, you will have partical rudder control only on one side and airbrake on the other.

Mike:

It is a GEOBAT. (what) look at geobat.com. I am using two servos ans I can almost get it to work. But trying to get both airbrakes and rudder to work is driving me nuts. I'm would like one switch position to have rudders working and when I move the switch I have the airbrakes.

It sounds simple enough, yea right!
