    Using a Y harness may complicate the mechanical set up of the servos. You may need to use a reversing Y harness to make one of the servos run in the right direction.

    Split elevators can be done by using either the flap channel or aux 2 channel as the second elevator.

    Using aux 2 as the second elevator channel:use mix program 5 or mix program 6 (so that the trim will work). Mix the elevator with aux 2 with the elevator as the master and aux 2 as slave. Inhibit the aux 2 switch as described on page 38 of users manual. Set second elevator travel and subtrim and with the respective aux 2 page.
    Set 2nd elev direction with +% or - % numbers on mix function page.

    Horizon rep advised to plug the right side servo into the elevator port and the left side into the AUX 2 port then follow the directions given above.
