Good day Simon,
Lynn King in Anacortes WA. here.

Very interesting ship you describe. Sounds like many innovations.
I am currently flying a DG 1000 by EMS. I bought it from Ralf Scheifele
of EMS on our trip to Germany in October and November. It had been
one of the planes that Thomas Schmidt used to win the 2002 world
glider aerobatics title. All that being said, here are the similarities to
your new plane.
First it has a 6 servo (actually 10 servos with spoilers and water dump)
wing with the same setup as you describe. Only the outer, small, sections
are used for thermalling, and yes, they only go up. I also have full chamber
control, plus flaperons and landing flaps.
Just to complete the picture I have rudder, elevator, tow release and
breaks.
All this is accomplished with a Multiplex P 4000.
Obviously a lot of mixing going on.........
However, to make some things easier we Y'ed the spoilers and break,
so that at 90% spoiler the break starts to take effect. Also the tip
ailerons
are coupled to the rudder for normal thermal flying and uncoupled for
towing.
I hope some of this helps.
The biggest help, other than your own knowledge, to programming
the P 4000 is Mike Shellim, and John McNamara.
Unfortunately our Profi 4000 mail list is no longer.

I'm looking forward to seeing the pics.

Hi Simon/Lynn/all,

This is definitely an easier task on a Profi. With a 9 channel 3030, you could
have 9 independant wing servos if you really wanted to, and it wouldn't affect
the programming method (other than lacking tail servos!). You'll have to round
up an IPD9 RX to have all the surfaces fully independant (no y's), but you
aren't exceeding the limits of the Profi (6wing+2tail+speed control).

You could have the inboard ailerons linked to a switch that disabled them, or
set things up so that they only moved when the stick is moved past a certain
point.

Motor control is also probably easiest on the profi as well, since you could
use a switched channel or one of the sliders as a proportional throttle.

Simon - I could show you how to program the profi when you get things finished,
if you chose to go that way. Here's hoping the weather holds to the weekend!

Lynn - I got six messages from the Profi list today...it's still working as far
as I know

Cheers,
Adam
