Default Expo on Optic

Will expo also affect the slave channel when using flaperon/Spoileron/dual elevators on an Optic?

YES! The channels and or servos are linked when the mixes are activated. Same is true for Trims, Rates as well as Expo.

Hi,

When I asked this question I was told that trim changes are NOT followed by slaved channels & I know this is true with my Optic. Has there been a change in firmware that has fixed this?

When using all the dedicated mixing (I.E. ail diff, flapperons, dual elevator, v-tail, etc...) the trims will all work properly on each control surface; it's only the p-mixes where the trims don't link to the slave. This is also true with other manufacturers systems until you get into the real high end radios.

Hi,

Yes, the control surfaces will directly follow their respective trim inputs; e.g. both ailerons follow aileron trim (except in CROW), elevator follows elevator trim, rudder follows rudder trim. But try this: Enable FLPN & activate E>F with a useful % of elevator to flapperon (ail) coupling. Then input some elevator trim. You will find ( if the same TX is being discussed) that the elevator will respond to that trim but not the ailerons, in unison, which are slaved to it when in FLPN mode. I think you are implying that they will. You may want to reconsider this when advising others.

I didn't imply that at all... In Flapperon mode the aileron trim affect both aileron servos. These are two control surfaces in Flap/Elev mixing so the trims should not link. The same holds true for air/rud mixing.. the user has to trim each individually. Trims will link where two servos are use for one function like ailerons, V-tail, and Dual elevator. You shouldn't have the flaps move when you trim the elevator in Flap/Elev mixing. This holds true in other manufacturers radios as well.

Hi,

Do you know what "obfuscation" or "conflation" means?
