No mix needed. As DanBo3D said... just make sure the deflections are going in the right directions as the sticks.

I don't understand. There is no servo movement without a mix.

Taranis mix for V tail EPP Eagle

Ok sorry for the misinformation.

Here's my mix in the mixer page, for the Taranis users out there:
Ch1. 100 throttle
Ch2. 100 ail (not used)
Ch3. Rudder
+= 100 elevator
Ch4. Rudder
+= -100 elevator

Strange but it works,,,,

Thanks Chino, got it now.

I'm using 50% elevator weight and 95% aileron weight, both with 40% expo.
My thinking was I'd never need as much elevator action, particularly with the flatter angle of my tail feathers.

My AUW came in at 22oz with a 2200mAh battery.
CG is set for 6.0cm per the instructions.

I'll report back after I maiden it.

Agreed. You want as much rudder movement as you can get, but you won't need nearly as much elevator movement.

It's a little sluggish to respond to rudder movements, and too pitchy / over responsive, if you try to use the same amount of movement for elevator.

I don't personally feel the need for a lot of expo, especially on the rudder movement - it would just make it seem more reluctant to turn, at which point you'd (I'd) probably lean on the stick, and over correct.
