Try changing the servo leads to the receiver. You may have to reverse the servo aft the transmitter to get the control surfaces to move correctly. Up and down look normal, right aileron makes the trailing edge of the right elevon go up, and the left elevon go down.

Spektrum rx is ok

Works properly for elevons, same tx setup.
So appears something fishy about the orange rx, will look into further an post back results.

Receiver

OK
This morning I confirmed that my regular spectrum receiver works properly with one servo in Aileron, and one in elevator and TX set for Delta.

The ORANGE Receiver with Stabilization (new one) Works ok when its switch is set to regular (non delta), and the stabilization reaction is correct for a NORMAL setup - in this case elevator only and one elevon move.

When I set the switch to delta, the stabilization reaction is correct both respond to elevator correction, and correctly respond to roll correction, but the regular inputs from the stick move one servo only, no matter what you do.

Going to search this on the receiver form.

Try a different Orange RX. They all work fine for me. I think you have a bad RX.

When you set the stabilization board to a delta you don't have to set your transmitter to delta, too. Either the stabilizer does the mixing or the transmitter does, but not both. Otherwise you'll get some funny results. To get a stabilized delta mix, set the stabilizer on delta and the transmitter on normal.

The winner is....2RK

Thanks, you are correct, I set receiver to delta,as it would need too be this way to implement corrections, and set my DX7 back to normal wing, two servo ailerons.
all responds correctly now!
Just have to go over my esc programming and am ready to glue up the fuselage.

That's strange it would work with one RX, but not with another.

@Pdr1966 - You're welcome. Glad to have helped.

@denial15 - Not really. Pdr1966 has 2 receivers ... one a regular Spektrum receiver and the other an Orange receiver with a built-in 3-axis stabilizer and a built-in delta wing mixer. As expected, the Spektrum RX works ok on delta with the transmitter doing the mixing. The problem with the Orange RX is that it's mixing the elevator and aileron signal inputs for a delta wing, expecting the inputs from the transmitter to be separate elevator and aileron signals. But he already had his transmitter sending mixed elevator and aileron signals. Just a small overlook that can make anyone scratch his head

Got it. I thought it was a standard Orange RX. Yeah, I can see that one making a difference.

F-15 flying

Got two nice flights in today, had the camera on board for both and it worked fine. Landings were fine but managed to screw-up the roll out on both. The first time I went a little long and then couldn't stop/turn in time before I hit the grass overrun. The second landing I drifted right and couldn't correct, off into the grass again. One thing I know about my plane, there is relatively little static weight on the nose wheel - which is fine unless you have a head of steam going and then the nose wheel steering is pretty ineffective. And with no functioning rudders - it's point and GO!

Anyway - here's to better landings!
