Default 6EXAS Flaperon

I am trying to set up flaperon on my new ARF and am having trouble getting the dial centered. It seems that the flaperons are only level when the dial mark is about 3/4 of the way to the right of its full rotation. This means that I have to guess where is center while in flight rather than knowing that full left is neutral and full right is full flaps.

Now as it is set up full right dial is flaps down, full left dial is flaps up like an air brake and about 3/4 dial right flaps neutral. I have the servos correctly connected and both the flaperon and flap trim functions active.

Is there any way to get the dial so that full one way is neutral while full the opposite way is full flaps down.

I put this on the manufacturer forums but they are taking too long I think this forum is faster.

Thanks for any help,

I'm sure some else will chime in and I haven't done this in a few months, but my first thought is to try the EPA on channel 6. move the dial all the to one side and use the EPA to set the center.

I set dial to center and use chan 1 and 6. Then program air brake for 40% down and I just toggle
air brake switch for flaps when I land. Switch up, no flaps switch down 40% flaps. If I want to rotate
dial at this point 50% of up and 50% of down. I just leave it neutral and use speed brake for flaps
on and off. Manual also goes thru this.
