I need some help programming my 14mz radio, please read

I want to set up a landing mode for my Skymaster gripen. I want the condards to be in up elevator position and my rear alierons in slight down position. I think I know how to put that feature on a switch but I need help where it will do that but at a slow speed. I think it has something to do with servo speed. ANYWAYS if there is someone here that is really good with the futaba 14mz please pm your contact number so we can do it over the phone.

Question is why.

This is a delta, the only landing mode you might want would be to increase the throws of the canards, so that you can increase the AOA before landing. Get that nose up and and the aircraft will slow right down.

I figured it out, had a good landing. I posted the video

it came in hot because it was full of fuel very short maiden flight. HAD to make some changes in the expo. Overall im happy and the best part came home with it

I saw the video and the problem with the landing was because it was landed flat.

A delta needs a higher AOA for landing, less fuel makes it a little easier.

I am surprised that your pilot did not fully check your plane before flight.

3D aircraft you fly with 50% expo not a jet, plus who puts someone on a buddy box when you are doing a madien.

I saw two deltas in the background, I am sure they can provide you with some guidance, you just have to listen.

Why not? Expo is a perfect way of combineing large throvs with smooth controlling, either it's a Yak54 or a jet fighter. Specially if your plane has a large speed envelope like a delta and you want to avoid flipping switches while flying.

Flying with expo is a personal choice. Jets are all about smooth lines and engergy management. I have never seen hard pulls, snaps with jets.

This guy is a beginner and has a history of erratic flying and needs all the help he can get.

So fly how you like.

I agree jets are all about smooth. If you listen to the video the guy doing the flying complains about too much expo and almost loses the the plane.

Sherlock is a novice in more ways than he knows.

Setting it up properly is important, but excludeing expo is not the only way...

Flying jets are more then just cruiseing around, even though most jetflyers tend to spend too much money and fly way to little so the flying style tend to be 300ft+ up and no manovers what so ever...

(I pull up to 100G's with my Swist)

Wow a 100g's you are an expert. Anyone can fly a glider even with a turbine on it..

So I will spend my money and just look at my planes since I do not fly.

Thanks for the advise.
