Default 4ch controller setup for 3Dplane?

how do you set up a controller for a 3D plane? wich stick should go up an down of left or right, to controll the different rudders on the plane? eks, if you press the left stick on the controller to the right, should the plane tilt to the right and go upside down. . or should the nose of the plane turn right then? I've just bought a Katana EP, but I haven't tried it yet.

WeirdAl,
I hope you have already mastered a plane with elevator, rudder and throttle. If you have not, you are going to stuff your Katana in short order, probably on your first attempt at flying it. You really should fly a high wing 4 channel airplane before trying to fly the Katana.
There are several ways to set it up. THe most common is mode 2. The following picture should help you.
Good Luck!
Doug

Hej!
Varför frågar du om du redan kan flyga...????? Det här är väl inte dit andra eller tredje flygplan ???
Spakarna används ju på samma sätt i alla flygplan!

nei det gjør det ikke.. jeg har hatt 4 fly før. men det var 3kanals. de hadde ikke ailerons. og på det ene flyet var gassen på høyrestikka. og på det andre var det bare en knapp for gassen. så hadde du rudder og elevator. så det.. . . nå har jeg kjøpt meg et 3Dfly, og kontrollen måtte programmeres selv. de andre flyene var billigfly til under tusenlappen. og et bensinfly til 1800. lurer på om jeg får til å fly katana-flyet. hvilke fly har du jaka?

Hi!
That´s the way our keeboards work over here in Scandinavia. Å;Ä;Ö!
Back to your radio ...now in English!

All (most at least) radios world wide use something called mode 2, which means the throttle and the side-rudder is on the left stick and on the right stik you have got elevator and aileron.
(Vänster spak har gas och sidroder och höger spak höjdroder och skevroder).
Why you have aileron and elevator on the right stick is because most of us are right handed and we want the most important control functions on the right stick.

Jag flyger lite av varje, men gillar bäst att tävla i Q-500 pylon och bygga skalamodeller

Hälsningar!
