On Page 11 we have "8. R/C system & wiring"
The first section of this is for "EDF power system"
. With this system the canard only operates in pitch using only one servo.
The second is for "Pusher version power system"
. Again with the canards operating only in pitch using one servo.
The third "For using mixing/delta function on the front stabilizers only"
is used for canards that operate in both pitch and roll mode using two servos.
I have a JR PCM 10X transmitter that allows for either + or - mixing plus servo reversing on all 10 channels.
I will use the set up with the canards operating in pitch mode only. The in Tx mixing that I will need to use will be the same as the flap elevator mixing plus flaperons used on my Formosa II except the flap/elevator mixing will be in the opposite direction. This mixing can be switched on and off as required. On the delta wing I will then have elevons and the canard will provide extra up or down force at the nose but no roll force.
My Club has a 200 x 10-meter hot mix strip that was designed to allow operation of gas turbine powered models so I will have a lot of room to accelerate to a high speed before TO. The reports that the canards alone are not enough to lift the nose on TO indicates that the CG may be too far forward.
