Servo Reversers, Still bad, or old issue?

As it says, I building a nice fiberglass F4E jet that Im was planning on running 2 servo reverers on, (I know on cheaper servos you can revers the wires on the motor, and the "Pot" What ever that is)


I went ahead and got a DX7 with a AR7000 so I can do the flaps with out a reverser, but Im not going to rip a part my new Hitec 225 MG servos used for the elevator. (One per side)

Beside swaping direction of one, are servo revers with spectrum radios still a bad thing, or was this an earlly issue?

I cant belive there almost $20 each for a servo reverser, they have to be better than there were back in the day right?

Thanks mike

You can split the servos onto different channels, reverse one on your radio and mix them back together. Works fine on DX7, you just need to have spare channels.

Thanks,

But yes I know this, I pluged the left flap into Aux 1 and the Right Flap in the Aux 2.

But I tried pluging the secound elvator in the gear slot, as I don't have no electric gear on this bird yet, and I could not get it to work very well. It seems like the gear channel in the reciver dose not work well as a slave for a second servo.

Thanks Mike

Mixing into gear

Mike,
To mix successfully into Gear, you will need to kill the Gear switch input first, either by mixing Gear against Gear or by setting Travel Adjust to zero.
Then pick Mix 5 or 6 to include the trim, and mix from Elevator to Gear - reverse as required.
Should work fine.
Regret I have no info on servo reversers.
Cheers,
Pete

Spektrum still advises against reversers.
