I wish I had enough channels for tilt! As it is now I have:

Throttle
Rudder
Elevator
Ailerons
Pan
Autopilot Switch x2
OSD Switch

That is 8 channels, all I have.

I have been thinking about Y'ing the OSD switch, I could then hook up an auxiliary control like a bomb drop or something (Well actually I want to do a bomb bay :P)... although now that I think about it, I could use the pan as an auxiliary too if I thought it out right :P

At either rate I think my bix is not going to get a tilt, just pan. Eventually I will upgrade to a bigger airframe and more channels .
