Default Futaba Radio

I have a Futaba Radio 7CAP channel 28 and when I input left aileron the elevator moves down. Now... all mixes are off and it doesn't do it with right aileron.
The same thang happens with all the planes on this radio.
Any ideas? [>:]

Are you using dual aileron servos?

I had that before - recheck that you don't have Elevon or V Tail on.

Verify which mode you are in.

Hold the two left buttons in and turn on the transmitter. You will get a screen that allows you to change the mode, make sure its set for Mode 2.

Suddenly ALL the planes on the 7CAP now have elevator mixing in from ailerons? Bucause it effected all models, my guess is that there is an internal malfunction with the radio. More information would be nice to be sure, like is the ail->elv mix proportional, when did it start, does elevator work on it's own, etc.

Ok, just talkes to Futaba customer service; Put the radio on a blank model and it still does it. So, they said " There is a bad pot on the right stick, send it back for repairs."

Thanks for the help.
