Tracker II flaperon work-around
Listen up all you Tracker II owners - I have been working on a work-around for those who haven't sent your transmitters in for the Flaperon update. It uses 2 of the 3 P-mixes, but it seems to work fine.

1). Set your wing mix to "no wing mix" in the Track 1 programming.
2). Select Data Save and press Data + to save.
3). Turn the Tx off, and back on for the change to take effect.
4). Assuming you want proportional flaps, connect ch 1 & 6 to your ailerons (if you want a flaps switch, use ch 5 wherever my instructions say ch 6)
5). Set your Flap rate to 50%
6). Set Pmix-1 master = ch 1, slave = ch 6, M => S rate = 100% and M <= S rate = -50%
7). Set Pmix-2 master = ch 6, slave = ch 6, M => S rate = -50%, and M <= S rate = 0%
8). Select Data Save/Exit and press Data + to save and exit.

There may be other ways, but this was the first method I found which works using rev 1.16 firmware. Slight experimentation with the posted percentages can be done to customize for your particular setup. If you are unsure of your firmware version, watch the display when you power up the Tx. Contact Polk's Hobbies to obtain the firmware update for free. I think the current revision is 1.2
