Sailing an EC 12 most devote one channel to a jib adjuster. The picture shows how I disabled the rudder gimbel after installing a rotary pot in place of a switch on the front of the transmitter. The left stick now only functions up and down for sail out and in. The rudder wires are now attached to the rotary pot which serves and my jib adjuster and rudder gimbel is locked in place with a screw.

Is that a 4 channel radio?
What channel do you use for rudder control?
