Default RD 6000 spoilerons

Is there some way of getting spoilerons with the RD 6000 ? I've been all the way through the manual and it doesn't appear so. I cannot enter a -ve value for one of the 2 flaperon settings. Thought that would have been an obvious way of doing it.

page 52 in the operation manual...4th paragraph down next to the picture that says.... FLAP...


you can then use your flap switch for either spoilerons or flaps but not both.

I ran into the same problem. The manual says you can enter a value from -ve 150 to +ve 150. Yes, this would be a nice easy way to do it... I found I could only access values from 0 to +ve150......what I did was swap the left and right aileron servo leads(plug left servo into right output from receiver and vice versa). Now, move the the ailerons and change your servo reversing as needed to get them to move in the right direction. Now when you hit the flap switch, the ailerons should move up instead of down.

CP140, yup understand what you're saying but still annoying that I cannot use flaperons and spoilerons during the same flight.

C'est la vie.

It is possible to have both at the same time, I cannot remember exactly how I did it but the left hand switch was flapperons and the right was spoileons and I used a mixer to do it ....

Keep trying, it is possible.

Raymond - Thanks - I'll keep trying then. But if you or anyone else remembers would be grateful if they could let me know how to do it.
