My first Mustang was a little tricky to land because it would drop a wing if you tried to hold it off for that smooth touchdown on landing.

This time I cut the ailerons about 2 inches in from the wingtip and added about an inch toward the fuselage.

Then I put in two HS-55 servos - one for each aileron so I could have flaperons.

By using the aileron/rudder mixing and the two free mixes on the Optic 6, I was able to get the flaperons with the existing Berg 4 receiver. Ref. the thread.

Use about 50% flaps in your radio give or take 5% depending on any roll tendencies. I ended up with 55% on the left flaperon and 50% on the right for trimmed flight.

This makes quite a difference for landing - now I can get that nice touchdown without catching a wing. It is also fun to do slow flybys with the flaperons down. It goes without saying that the fast flybys are also fun.

Setup is a Himax 2812-1080 outrunner with 2" Dubro spinner, APC 9 X 7.5 SF prop, PHX 25, and a TP 2100 3s lipo.

Happy Flying! Jon
