Glad you go it. I actually used the glider programming of my 9CAPS to activate crow on my Ultrastick 60 with a 4 servo wing. It would have been a real pain in the butt to use individual p-mixes to accomplish something that was already predefined. I set the on/off on a switch and it gradually fed in based on throttle stick position. Much more straight forward as it also allowed me to mix in down elevator to keep the nose from ballooning. This worked great and it was a blast to point the nose straight down, pop crow and then pull up just a few feet off the deck. Got a bunch of stares and oh thinking it was going to do a lawn dart. The crow works well to keep the speed down. It was also fun to turn it on and just drag the tail almost on the ground it would go so slow.
