Question
DX7 to DX5e delta wing setting

Hi All,
Setting up a foam jet for my grandson. Have never used the delta (elevon) setting on my DX7. My DX5e does not have the delta wing option. It's not a computerized TX.

We now buddy box with the two radios for my planes with seperate ailerons, elevators, and rudder. No problems there. But the foam plane we are building together is going to have just elevons.

I can set up the DX7 to fly the plane in the delta (elevon) mode, but will this function transfer to the DX5e when we buddy box.

Thanks

Tom

Your DX5e IS a computer radio, albeit a very basic one. Page 11 of the DX5e manual tells you which switch controls elevon.

Next to the four channel reversing switches you should have a MIX switch, this is the ELEVON MIXING Switch.

Yikes !!! My bad. I didn't think to look at the manual. Daahh!

Just figured the DX5e wouldn't have that feature.

Thanks for the info.

What's a manual? Even if you don't read the manual, you must of had to play with the reversing switches when setting up a model. You were never curious to see or know what that 5th switch (MIX) was for?

Nope, Never needed to mix anything. Didn't, use the DX5 that much. Learned with it on an eflite Apprentice, then bought a DX7. Have been using the 7 for everything.

Again, thanks for your help.
