Art Tech Cessna 182 500 Class build issues

Hi,

I'm new on here and just building my first RC plane, an Art-Tech Cessna 182. I built is as per the instructions in the pack, making sure I connected the servo cables correctly. Once I had it built, I connected the battery and found the following...

The rudder works fine
The elevators work fine
The LHS aerilon descends and stays there, even when the battery is disconnected. I had to undo the pushrod in case it damaged the foam
The RHS aerilon doesn't respond
The flaps don't respond.

I have double and triple checked that the connectors are connected properly, and they are...

Any help is appreciated as all I want to do is get it in the air after practising on the sim.

Thanks in advance.

I've got one of these - From factory the ailerons have a Y lead to connect them, does yours? When one side moves the other side should do the opposite.

Or have you fitted a different receiver?

No, just standard. I'll wait to I'm used to flying before I try anything more advanced.

I don't see anything that would resemble a Y lead, but I will have a better look when I get a chance after work.

I've been speaking to the online shop where I bought it, and they're sending a courier to pick it up and then replace it for me.
