Yes I'm tempted to bind the four spoilers together to save on weight and complexity !
Also on the full size the ailerons droop 5degrees when full flap is deployed this shouldn't be a problem if I can get the right gear
Now that I think about it more, it should be possible to link the outer four spoilers (o4s) to the ailerons and have them deflect at a lesser amount than the ailerons. You said the roll is controlled by the o4s, but I would think that so do the ailerons. Anyway, if you connect the o4s together, use one servo for them, y-harness them and put them in a rx ch, then do a prog mix and slave the o4s to the ailerons and 30% or so for up and zero for down. What do you think?
