Futaba mixes - flaps and spoilerons

I didn't find any model files out there forthis plane so I just went ahead and did a little bit of mixing - going to post this up for those that could use it - might even copy the model file if anyone is interested.

I just used the normal wing - 2 aileron wing setting (no flaps)

I created 2 sets of mixes:

Program Mix 1 & 2 - spoilerons (assigned it to the up position of SB)
Program Mix 3 & 4 - flaps (assigned to the down position of SB)

You can also use the airbrakes predone mix for the flaps portion if you want to easily add in elevator

I like flying manually so I didn't bother adding an elevator mix but can totally understand not wanting to hold constant elev. all the time so you could just either add another program mix 5 and just assign it to SB on in the up and down position with a constant up or down elevator depending on the mix - up for flaps - down for spoilerons.

anyhow hope this is some use for someone...(all values are subject to change...haven't flown it yet so haven't trimmed it out for slow flying - all just best guesses based on my funcub mixes)

glenbees, the problem with the control rods "snaking" has been addressed many times in this thread. Make sure your control horn is not embedded too deeply in your control surface. If it is too deep (your control hole sitting closer to your control surface) then this creates too much force for the rod to actuate the control surface without bending out of shape. I had my control horns too deep in my foam the first go around and I had to cut mine out and install them shallow (hole in horn sticking up higher). The hole for the elevator should be 1/2 inch above the surface and the rudder horn 3/8 of an inch. That is where mine are at and my control actuation is good.

Thankyou for your advice, Think i have sorted it but as you say i think i have the control horn to deep so will alter that as well.

Did a maiden on the beaver last night. Few things to work out but overall pretty happy with it. I ran my usual nano tech 460's which I always get 5 min of flying time out of. I've been wanting to try out a nano tech 950 and finally purchased one with my last order. Got 7 min and 50 sec before power drop. So safe time is 7 min and bring her in. Definitely nice to have a couple extra min per battery!

Finally after not flying the beaver for a long time because of a prop torque issue . The beaver tended to make right turns when giving more then 50% throttle i solved this by putting 2 prop spacers behind the motor mount so the motor has 2-3mm offset to the right. After this the beaver flies like a champ

I made a Slo-Mo video of it with a small crash (also in slomo) at the end of the vid i hope you like it
