In Section

I set my servos up in reflex which is pretty easy to determine with a straight edge on the bottom skin. Add camber to your liking. The lighter models need less camber than a Carbon 80 with ballast. I generally programed 3 camber settings positive from reflex and have these on flight modes instead of a camber slider so I could adjust differential and aileron to flap mix to suit the speed of the camber setting. No differential in reflex and add diff as the camber increases.
