That's odd, sounds like a bug. A left aileron command from the tx should cause Guardian to turn left, in 2D mode. Guardian can see no difference whether that command resulted from stick movement, trim, or programmed offset. More to the point, it shouldn't matter whether the command was present when 2D was switched on, or issued later.

I assume you have two aileron servos with one on the aux channel? I don't have any planes with this setup to try to replicate this, perhaps someone else can. You could try it with a Y on the aileron channel.

It should, it can't tell the difference. If its pitch changes it should move the elevator, whether the plane changed pitch or not. Are you thinking of mounting the Guardian on a servo?
