Default 9C Mixing Question- Double Vision Biplane

I've got a Double Vision and have completed the basic programming.

Ailerons: Ch's 1, 6, 7 (aux1), 8 (aux2).
Elevator: Ch's 2, 5
Rudder: Ch 4

Mixes were required for Aux 1 and Aux 2 to act as ailerons. Also used a mix for Ch 5 to act as an elevator. Then Mixes for Rudder to Elevator (both halves)= 5 pmixes used.

I am trying to mix aileron and rudder according to the instructions for the plane. My problem is it appears I need four mixes- one for each aileron- but I don't have anymore free mixes left.

I'm guessing I'm missing something simple but I can't figure out what it is so I'm bowing to the experts.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Hi Mike,

If you are trying to do a rudder to Aileron mix, you will just need to turn Link on and all four ailerons will follow the rudder input.

Also, you could use channel 5 as one of your flaps in place of channel 8. Then activate Ailevator and dial out any percentage on your ailerons on this page. This will give you dual elevators without having to use one of your Pmixes.

I hope you find this information helpful. You can also reach our Futaba support technical team at 217-398-8970, or via fax at 217-398-7721.

Sincerely,
Krysta

Thanks Krysta but in which mix would I turn Link on? I don't have a P-Mix left (unless I follow your second suggestion).

I'll check out Link in the manual too. I don't have any experience with it.

Thanks again!

Hi Mike,

If you have just one Pmix left, you can do just one mix with Rudder to Aileron with Link on, this will make anything that aileron is "linked" to (in the original first mixes) move in conjunction with the mix that you just created. If you don't have a spare Pmix, then you might want to try redoing this with the other mix I suggested.

Thanks, Krysta

Sweet. Thanks. I'll give it a shot tonight.

You're doing a bang up job, by the way!

Krysta,

Thanks to your "link" idea, I saved one mix by linking the rudder to elevator (was using two)- which "linked that mix to the other elevator since I had them mixed together already and that freed up the mix I needed for the ailerons. Linked them and voila!

Wahooo. I love it when a plan(e) comes together.

Thanks again!

How? According to the 9C manual you have to use a PMix to do this. (I reviewed the 9C FAQ and could not find the example referenced in below)

9C Manual: (• CH2 and CH8 only. (With programmable mixing, could utilize CH5 as the 2nd elevator servo.
See www.futaba-rc.com\faq\faq-9c.html for examples.) THROTTLE-NEEDLE uses CH8 and cannot be active simultaneously.)

Hey Jim,

I think that's what she meant........ use a PMix for Ch 5 as an aileron and then I would "save" a Pmix since Ailevator is a preset function not requiring a pmix.

Jim, Mike's correct, I was trying to save him a free Pmix by using the Ailevator function. This will most likely not be found in the manual, just trial and error on my part to help him out.
