Your post prompted me to download the file and install but my airbrakes are both going the same direction rather than opposite.
Any suggestions on what I need to change?

Rudder would need to be plugged into gear inorder for there to be differential rudder.

A Y harness doesn't allow differential.

Yes, you do need too remove the Y harness and plug both servos into the board. It's easy to do and the program is setup on the 3way flap switch so you get both flaps in and flaps out whatever you prefer! Once I find my prefered one I will just set it up for a %50 %100 type of thing in the same direction.

I've seen the download for the DX7s but not the DX8...

Have they finally updated the DX8 section?

It's not really necessary to have rudder brakes with the micro, you can just elevator land it wherever.

Your brake is your elevator/AOA control

I'll have to use Horizon.com more often. Here in the UK we get Horizon.co.uk which doesn't have anywhere near as much info...

This thread seems fairly dead....lol But what flight times are you guys getting out of your 200mah batteries? I'm still getting used to mine so fly pretty slow and have yet to get an adapter for my proper charger so I cant see how much I'm putting back in but tonight I flew a good 5min about half throttle and it only too the selectra charger about 10min to charge it. So I must be a long ways off from an 80% discharge.....

I usually fly 6-7 minutes, i do a thorough mix of slow speed and high speed.;

the really crazy thing is the more i fly this plane the more fun i have, its essentially the only performance oriented micro without AS3X that i still fly!
Ive owned her for a year, and im only just now mastering blurring upright boomerang landing repeatedly!

I just got mine and I carry it in my backpack because I cycle everywhere. The two times I have flown it it's been nothing but fun! So slow yet so fast.... I can't wait for my batteries to get here!

Wow, I am having the hardest time ever picking another mini/micro bnf. This one looks like a winner. I am definitely getting the Eflite Mig, but I would like to get one more at this time. Love the looks of this plane.

I'm going for the micro beast next! I just flew 3 batteries thru mine today and had a blast! I can't get over how easy it is to land on grass!
