5 ch RX and Fut 8UAF

Does anyone know if a Futaba 8UAF can be programmed so that ailerons/flaperons are on chanels 1 and 5, not 1 and 6? It's for a Mini Floh E and I would really rather not go to a larger/heavier receiver. I'm hoping someone here may have solved this problem before me.

Thanks.

Yeah, you can do it. I have it setup on my 8UAF right now, but I cant remember how to do it Get that 3rd party instruction book by Don Edburg (sp?), mine is lost in the shop somewhere.

Thanks for the quick response. Knowing that it can be done, I'll spend a bit more time poking around.

does your model have rudder? If not, it is like my Sirius, and I mixed spoilerons on it with a 555. I did it without the "book"(too lazy to order it). It works great. If it will help, I will go to the Hangar and get my TX and reply with the exact settings(I don't remember how I did it).
If it does have rudder, I'm sure it can be done, but I'd have to play with it to see how.

Under the Param menu, you can select 6/7 or 5/6 - use 5/6, and the gear switch is disabled, and flaperons on 1 & 5..

Andy, that function is only available on the Super 8, not the standard 8UAF that us poor slobs have

Ding ding ding ding.....

We have a winnah!!

thanks AndyW, that did the trick. I was having limited success trying to use a Programmable mix. The TX is an 8UAF S. Is that the Super 8?

Thanks for the offer Agpilot, the Mini Floh E has a V-tail so I guess the answer to does it have a rudder would be a yes, sort of.

Now I can proceed to connect my aileron surfaces and maybe, just maybe get this thing in the air this weekend.

Thanks all!
