Question about DX6i, AR400 and UFO

Hey guys, I've been looking but coming up empty. I'm trying to setup my DX6i with a homebuilt UFO and an AR400 receiver. I can't get the elevons(is that what they are called?) to work in sync. Has anyone done this with a DX6i and AR400?

Thanks

Tim

Has the AR400 been bound to the DX6i ? If so then the next step is to go to the " set up list " and activate " elevon " on the "wing/tail mix " . Make sure the trims are centered and the subtrims are on "0" . Then make sure both elevon servos are on the plane symmetrically ( both servo arms facing into the middle of the plane or both servo arms facing out ) . And I would also temporarily disconnect the pushrods from the servos , or the pushrods from the control horns . Then looking from the rear of the plane , plug the servo for the right elevon into the aileron channel . Then plug the servo for the left elevon into the elevator channel . Then if you move the aileron stick to the right , the right elevon should go up and the left elevon should go down . Then if you move the elevator stick down ( toward the bottom of the DX6i ) , both elevons should go up . If one of the elevons does not move in the direction it's supposed to , then reverse the channel that the servo is plugged into .

Thanks. I have done all that, but when I move the stick right, both go down and when I move the stick left both go up. When I move the stick down right goes down and left goes up. and vice versa when I move the stick up.

Edit: Ah ok, I understand. I got it working. Thank you!

Thanks.

Hi Timm, Post some video when you get it airborne. It would be great to see it.
