Default walkera and futaba mixing

Hi all.
I'm hoping someone on this site has run across this problem before. I reciently bought a walkera 60 heli at auction for a very good price. The heli is complete minus reciever, battery and canopy. I would like to use my Futaba T6xHs to control this but the swash plate mix for ccpm puts the elevator servo 180 degrees from where it is located on the heli. The aileron function works in the correct direction but the elevator function is reversed,and the pitch function is reversed. Changing the individual servo directions does not fix this. I need to program my radio to rotate and flip the entire swashplate set up. I am hoping that there is at least one other person out there that has had, and fixed this on there own heli. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Graham,
I recently helped a guy on another forum with his 6EX 2.4Ghz... I'm not sure if the settings are the same on the radios but here is what he came up with that worked.

Servos

#1 nor
#2 rev
#3 rev
#4 nor
#5 nor
#6 rev

SWASH set to 3-S (was 3-E)

CH A +50%
CH E -50%
CH P +50%

Hope this helps,
Rob.

Thanks Rob but your set up didnt work out. ptb over on the beginners forum set me straight on this one.
I had the aileron moving in the right direction, and was fighting to get elevator and collective right.
When I set up elevator and collective it was a simple matter of reversing the AFR rate values for aileron and pitch.
Thank you for your help anyway.
Graham
