You can do it a couple ways.

Use the built in mix "Ailevator" (page 50 in the manual) and zero out your AIL movements and it will just move the elevators

Grab one of the P-Mix's and do it there. (What I do)
P-MIX1
(ON)
(ELEV>GEAR>)
RATE>-100% -100%
OFFSET 0%

MIX>ON
MAS>2:ELEV
SLV>5:GEAR
LINK>ON
TRIM>ON
SW>A (doesn't matter)
POSI>NULL

if i set it up that way. would i still be able to make the elevators move like ailerons on the flip of a switch?


THis way:

Grab one of the P-Mix's and do it there. (What I do)
P-MIX1
(ON)
(ELEV>GEAR>
RATE>-100% -100%
OFFSET 0%

MIX>ON
MAS>2:ELEV
SLV>5:GEAR
LINK>ON
TRIM>ON
SW>A (doesn't matter)
POSI>NULL

With the Switch setting in NULL (at the bottom) it will just be on all the time. You could technically assign it to a switch, but that would probably be a little dangerous if you bumped it.

I copied those settings from my 30% Edge setup & it works great.

I'm pretty sure the Ailevator mix is where most people do the dual elevator mix. I originally had a 7C & it didn't have an ailevator setting so I used the PMIX's for everything and just carried it over to my 9C.
