Mixing

Radio
Futaba 8FGA Super

4 servo's in the wing
2 outer for the aileron
2 inner for the flaps...

lead me to right direction on mixing these. i want more the just standard flaps an ailerons. like to have the flaps work with the ailerons, or the ailerons work with the flaps

Thx Jo

Having flaps work with ailerons can be useful, having ailerons work with flaps is not a good idea.

having flaps work as ailerons (full strip ailerons) is not normally needed. half span flaps only contribute about 30% more roll rate. inboard just doesn't matter as much as outboard. you can make that up elsewhere.


just make sure if/when you use crow (airbrakes) that the outboard ailerons always deploy UPWARDS. this creates washout which will keep you from tip stalling.
if you deploy them inverted, or reverse the mix (either way makes the outboard ailerons deploy DOWNARDS) then you'll be a flying tipstall waiting to happen.
