Question
How to mix throttle with elevons on DX8

I have done a search to find the answer and struck out.
I have built a couple of wings and they all seem to have the same problem. The more throttle you give the higher they climb. I can cut the throttle and glide stay nice and level for quite some time. Therefore I don't really want to make adjustments on the elavon mechanically.

I'm looking for a way to do a throttle mix so when I give it more than 50 to 60% throttle my elavon will drop down to counter act the up thrust.
I figured I can't be the only wing guy out here with this problem.

Thank you for taking a look at this post and help sort out the problem

Rogrc,
Go into you the "Flight Modes" chapter of the manual, pretty easy. Basically you turn-on the flight modes option, select the mode switch you would like to use, re-trim for each flight mode....done.

I use the flaps section in my dx6 for that. Each flap setting has a matching elevator compensation settings. I don't put in any numbers for the flaps themselves, just the elevator. This gives me 3 handy trimsettings on one switch.
