Default servo setup for canards


I downloaded plans online and am buildiing a foam jet that has canards on the front of the plane. On the website they had a video of how to setup your control surfaces but no wiring schematic. Most of the control is in the rear wings. They are setup on elevon which is easy enough. The problem is that the canards are setup to move only when the elevons are used for elevator. Then the plane banks left or right they don't move. When the leading edge of the rear wings move up (to nose the plane down) the leading edge on the canards move down and vise-versa. How do you get servos to work together to achieve this?

The web address to see the plane and the video of these control surfaces is. (The seventh entry down has the video.)

Go to RC Groups and check Canard Forum Show Discuss Learn. There is discussion on this on the last two to three pages. Charles
