Default Programming 7UAP PCM

Hey Guys;

I need help with the programming steps for the Futaba 7UAP
to mix down flaps with some down elevator, on my Hanger 9
Ultra-Stik 60. Flaps are on ch. 6, and elevator is on ch. 2.
Please also recommend the percentage of down elevator
when I have full flaps at approx. 40 degrees. Thanx.

You'll have to experiment. There’s know gimme on this. Start with as little as 5% and fly it and deploy the flaps and see what happens. Based on the models behavior determine what's needed and add or subtract as you see fit. Always do these programming tests a few mistakes high.

Thanks Mr. Glavin;

I do further need to know the initial 7UAP programming steps.
Should I use one of the MIX functions, or should I use the
elev - flap ( 2 to 6) function. If the latter, how can I reverse
the function from 6 to 2 (down elev with down flaps to prevent
bollowning.

Sounds like you want to couple flaps to the elevator? Verses elevator to flaps?

Have you looked here?

I have looked into the suggested site, without any answer
to my question. That site only has a few FAQ and answers.

The compleyte Super-7 manual:

http://www.futabarc.com/manuals/7uaf-7uap-manual.pdf

It is actually fairly simple to program. (I have one) Depress the first two buttons at the same time, the TX will beep and enter the programming menus.

The first or second button scrolls through which section of programming you will be working on.

The 3rd and 4th buttons choose which item on the screenyou will be adjusting. Most of the menus are self-explanatory.

The number one error people make when trying to set up flaperons is... they plug the 2nd aileron into channel 5 instead of channel 6.

The 5th and 6th buttons make the changes.

The first two buttons depressed at the same time (or turning the TX off) will get you out of programming mode.

*******

The flight timer is a count-up timer. It has no alarn for if you run out of fuel... it just keeps track of how long the TX has been turned on (total time) since the timer was reset. Using the timer is a good idea... as it can help you in monitoring if your batteries are giving reduced capacity. You should get about the same total flying time each charge with the same aircraft using the same battery pack.

*******

I just ran a test and my Super-7 Transmitter draws 360 mah per hour of operation. This is VERY high compared to a typical 4 channel TX which can draw under 200 mah per hour. My TX was recently serviced by Radio South... These are OLD radios. (appx 15 to 20 years old)

*******

You will be using one of the "P-Mix" functions for your desired flap acting in concert with elevator. I would use the 3-position P-mix switch, such that centered the mix is off. Forward the mix has the flaperons move the same way as the elevator. Back the flaps move opposite to the elevator. That would be normal for Fun-Fly use.
