Starmax F-35 Thunderbird 608mm Wingspan w/ Thrust Vectoring

I just got and put together this nice little jet. The owner's manual is almost useless. Nice thing is that it's self-evident how it goes together and it's an almost ready to fly.

Here's my problem:

The servo wires are numbered but don't believe them! When I plugged into my receiver, it didn't work at all. Well all of the servos worked and the motor worked but not what they were labeled for at all.

How are the servos supposed to be setup ideally?

After I sort out which wire does what, I can see the normal setup of aileron, elevator(& thrust vectoring up/down), rudder (steering and thrust vector left/right), and throttle.

But what is best way to program it with my Futaba 7C (7 channels)?
Elevons? Mixes? I've never had thrust vectoring before so I'm newbie at this.

Help!

Russ

I got a reply from Futaba Support for programming 7C for thrust vectoring:

Thank you for your recent e-mail.

Here is one type:

Ch 1- Aileron
2- Elevator
3- Throttle
4- Rudder
5- Gear
6- up/down thrust vector
7- left/right thrust vector

Go to p-mix 1 and make it active, set the master to CH 2, slave is CH 6, switch does not matter and position is "--" and set the rate to what you want.

Go to p-mix 2 and make it active, set the master to CH 4, slave is CH 7, switch does not matter and position is "--" and set the rate to what you want.

If you want to turn the either of those mixes on and of from a switch. Just assign it to the switch you want under that p-mix.

Than go to parameter and set channels 5 and 7 to "-".
