My explanation was not meant to confuse, but rather educate a newby. I agree the control surface of a flying wing or delta airplane is known as an elevon, which is essentially an elevator that is also programmed to function as ailerons. And I am not aware of anyone who sets up elevons for RC aircraft on separate transmitter sticks, which was essentially the point I was trying to make to Jaynen here. So when he sets up his RET trainer aircraft, he should put the rudder and the elevator on the same stick, which is the right stick in Mode 2, so that transitioning to an Assassin or whatever wing he moves to next will be relatively easy for him. Hopefully that is clear to Jaynen and/or other newbies who read this?
