Question
Arkbird Autopilot flying wing setup

Hi all,

I've been doing FPV flight with a wing for a while now and just bought the Arkbird autopilot system.

I'm having some trouble figuring out how to setup the system on the wing;

On the transmitter, do I program the model as deltawing or as a normal fixed wing and leave the elevon mixing for the Arkbird?

On the Arkbird, where to plug what? (the manual only covers normal fixed wing)

Thanks, Beachcrasher

Don't know if you ever figured this out but from what I can see, the model tx is set up as a conventional airplane but the Arkbird has a dipswitch (#4 I think) that turns on the elevons. Haven't tried it yet as my Arkbird is in transit but that's what I see in the manual.
