Stylus V-tail setup?

Been awhile since I programmed my Stylus for V-tail setup. Mike Smith gave me his setup for my F3B Ceres and everything is working properly but it has 100% aileron to rudder mix and I can't figure out how he did it. Nothing is slaved in C-mix. Lost all my Stylusboy stuff so I need some expert advice.

Help,

go to MIX, then the very first thing there is AI-RUD mix.
that should do it, if i'm reading you right.

Mike uses a variable rate for Ail/RDR mix, he has the right top 3 pos switch, with low rate forward, off in middle, then high rate back. The high /low might be reversed, I just flew his styli set up a Torrey a few weeks ago with his Estrella set up. Ceres set up might be the same.

Set mix in Mix, then set up mix switch assign in switch menu.

Hey Dave,

The mix is off for the ail to rudder mix 0,130% for mix 1 and 45% for mix 2 This is the program he was using at last weeks F3B contest and I guarantee you he couldn't have been flying this mix.

Paul,

With the switch in the middle position the mix is still active.

I just figured out what it was. I had the flaps deployed ( they weren't hooked up and he has the high rate engaged for landing mode. I still wouldn't mind finding out how we're getting the V-tail mix with the 2A2FER wing type.
I know a walk through in this thread( but could be helpful to others) would be lengthy so feel free to pm me for my Phone #

Just figured out the V-tail setup. The V-tail A was active. I confused this with my JR 9303... I over complicated things. The Stylus is to simple to program now.

Thanks you guys,

David
