dx7s and crow

Not much info out on the dx7S in my searches so far. My girls bought the dx7S for Christmas. I have an ultra stick .40 arf still in the box that I've had for a few years. I don't know whether or not to set it up with 4 servos or 2. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
John

DX7s does have multiple main wing servo setup that I am sure will include what you need.

Thank you for the replies! I'm not real experienced with computer radios to begin.... I've just got a lot to learn.

Thanks again.

What did you mean by "crow" in your title?

Crow programming is for 4-servo wing glider.
You don't need crow for Ultra Stick .40 power plane.

DX7s, I believe, does not have crow program or sailplane program.

The Ultra does...

The DX7 doesn't but does have enough airplane mixing to do it on a switch.

Well apparently with the Ultra Stik and the four servo wing build,with the right radio, you can set it up for crow. That's what they're calling it in the manual. I dunno... same as airbrakes? A guy at the field has Ultra Stik 60 with it but he's got a high dollar JR radio. His plane will slow down and land in 30 ft. Or less even.

Same as crow... flaps down ailerons up. Lots of planes and gliders use it, have to have flaps to do it though and you need to be careful. If you have a stall sensitive plane the up ailerons compound the stall...

I've seen the larger Ultra set up for crow and it works very well. It's just a programing thing as long as you put the four servos in the wing.
