Thank you for the tip! I'm running an older Futaba 6XA and wound up running the wings off of the CH6 "trainer" switch/knob. I set the ATV b/t full open and full close and then use the dial to open anywhere inbetween. It works out really nice and allows for an "infinite" number of settings

Wing Sweep (0 min 25 sec)

Now how easy it will be to twist knob while in the air has yet to be seen. All I have left is to install rudders (which seem like the weakest point on this plane; I may try to re-engineer something) and attach the elevators and motor.
