JR x9503 full camber setting?
I just got my new JR x9503 and I am trying to get full wing camber/reflex (flaps and ailerons). However, the radio has a mix "Flap Rate" that works with flaps only. There is a "Flappeorn mix" which is suppose to affect flapperons and elevator but doesn't work for me.
I set it up to work ailerons alone and ailerons with flaps (ful wing), differncials, I can get full crawl/butterfly and camber/reflex for each flight mode (cruise, speed and thermal) but for flaps only.
Is there anything I am missing?

You can also do it the butterfly mix using the butterfly switch and the throttle stick.

Just to clarify, there are two flap and aileron camber adjustments.
The first are the Pre-sets that go with each flight mode (Launch, Cruise, Thermal, etc.). These surface deflections are set with the two momentary switches on the top row either side of the antenna mount. The LH one sets the flaps, the RH one the ailerons.
For example, if you want to set Launch camber put the Flight Mode switch you've selected for Launch into the Launch position. Now set the flaps to the Launch position (say 5 mm down) with the LH switch and the ailerons to the Launch position (say 5 mm to match) with the RH switch. Now as you flip the Launch switch on and off and the display changes modes you should see the flaps and ailerons follow.
The Flap Rate and Flaperon Mix adjustments are connected to the LH rotary slider and are used to add or take off surface deflection in any flight mode. Going back to Launch mode you can, for example, add or take off flap and aileron to compensate for wind conditions at launch. Having set Launch configuration, open the Flap Rate menu, pull the LH rotary slider down and set the additional down flap travel you want in the Flap Rate menu. Move the slider to the full up position and set the up flap travel. Always set Flap Rate first. Now do the same in the Flaperon Mix menu for the ailerons. It will always take 100% or more flaperon to get enough aileron travel to match flaps.
For some reason unknown to me you'll sometimes need to use the opposite setting to the slider to adjust flaperon. Slider down, adjust flaperon up values for example. So don't give up if nothing seems to be happening, just try the opposite.
As others have pointed out Sherman Knight's 9303 sailplane addendum is very useful in setting up complex glider configurations. Well worth reading and following.
Hope this helps a little.

The other trick that took me back to the instructions last week is that the Camber menu is hidden behind the Monitor screen - select Monitor, then click again and the Camber settings are revealed.
Logic would then say you could modify the settings there, but no - back to the instructions to see that the little trim switches are used to set the values in each flight mode.
Easy once you know where the little beggars are hiding, and what makes them change their tiny minds!
