Don, thanks for your efforts here! Question: why did you go with positive expo on the ailerons?

Positive expo feels about right with this setup. I've also got the .pxv file and can send directly if anyone interested, let me know your email.

Regards,
Don

NOMB and strictly a SWAG but it is possible that 'Volkert' is a Futaba user and is confused by the positive and negative differences.

It's a thought-

___________________________

Ahhhhhh on Futaba if you decrease sensitivity on a control you are entering NEGATIVE Expo. (from this perspective you are REDUCING control sensitivity around neutral so it is NEGATIVE.)

On JR and Spektrum if you do exactly the same thing you are entering POSITIVE Expo. (Positive because from their perspective you are ADDING something which is POSITIVE.)

Both manufacturers are correct in their statements. It depends on the chosen perspective as to whether it is positive or negative..

Clearer now ???

Joseph and I now have our models set up. If anyone wants the file, send me a PM. Joseph likes a bit more aileron and faster snaps.

Don,

Any way to increase the downline speed? Looks to slow.

Thanks,

VB
