Futaba 14MZ elevator to camber

I have not been able to figure out how to set it up so that when I pull elevator, the trailing edge drops (was that called Snap Flap on my old 9C?). I've found Ele ->Camber but it doesn't do anything.
I have been into the camber settings and have been able to set it so that it operates off a switch, but that's about it.

Also, is there a way to put variable camber on a slider? I can get it to a preset setting, but not variable.

Thanks, Neal

Hi Neal,
One way is use elev as master and the programmable mixers to mix into flap-ail. You can assign a switch for this to be on or off also.

I use a virtual or aux channel assigned to a slider and mix in, this way I have both preset settings on a switch or can use sliders for variable adjustments.
Let me see if I can find my CF reader to pull files to send.

Hi Tony, that would be great thanks!
I've flown with my 9C for years, and just can't get my head round this new one. I read every word of the manual, but it assumes I know what I'm doing. For example, I never found what the word 'trim' means, or the word 'rate'. I know I should know what these things mean, but when I go into the settings for a function, and expect to see how much to move the elevator by, I see things like trim and rate instead.

Thanks, Neal

Hi Neil,

Pm your email address and I will send some model files to you.
Copy them to your Cf card in the MODEL directory and then load.
You can then go in and see a few ways to do what you want or modify to your needs.

Thanks Tony

I finally got to spend some time with your files, and worked out what I was doing wrong, and finally my Tx is doing what I want.

Thanks again, Neal
