    If the menu's the same as my 7C 2.4, activate Ailvator, Elevator 1 & 2 to +100%, Aileron 3 & 4 to 0%, Elevators plugged into channels 2 & 5.

    that is correct.. if it is the older FM version.. which it appears that it is...

    they included the mix with the 2.4 version though....

    to the OP.. either an MSA-10 or a newer radio may be the best options....

    as eluded, you can set up a pmix to get the job done with your radio, but trim will only effect one ELE half

    You should be able to reverse the individual Servos in the transmitter without having to use a mixer, I think...

    You can but the point is, if its an older transmitter and you use a P-Mix, the trim will only effect the master side elevator half.
