Default TX Mixing Problem For Twin ESC Tank Control

Hi guys, Bit of help required. I have recently acquired a 1/48 scale Leo 2A6 with twin motors and thought I'd RC it. I am using a Turnigy 6 channel TX and receiver. I want to control it using mode 2 right stick channels 1 & 2. I am using two 5A ESC's and have connected each one to each motor. I have applied a mix of channel 2 (Elevator) as the Master and channel 1 (aileron) as the slave. It is working okay except for one thing. Reverse turning is in the opposite direction. Forward, Reverse, right turn and left turn are all okay but reverse turning is the wrong way round. I have tried swapping motor leads etc but then forward turning is the opposite way rouind. any ideas?

thanks

If you have a programmable transmitter, you could alter the low stick range to be opposite.

You may be able to rewire the stick actuator gimbals in the transmitter to do the same thing.

Sounds like transmitter adjust in any case.

Someone else may have a better suggestion though...
