Heklp..! Futaba 10c Launch preset

I sure could use a little help programming in a mix..

I'm looking to have setup on a switch an Elevator to Rudder preset mix..

Once I launch the plane I want to hit a switch so that I have something like 2% up Elevator and 2% right Rudder.. It would be really gradual!.. If I were to use the trim buttons it would be like using 4 clicks up elevator, to 4 clicks right rudder.. I'm stumped on programming it on a switch..

Thanks
Michael

Many radios when creating mixes will allow you to select what switch activates the mix.

Most of the time this switch selection is also on the same screen as the mix you are creating.

What you are looking for is not a Elevator to Rudder mix BUT a Elevator AND a Rudder mix, right?

You want some up elevator along with some rudder on a switch for when you launch?

If you have a flap menu and are not using flaps you could use the elevator compensation if you have it for the elevator and creat one mix for the rudder using the same switch.

OR

Create 2 mixes

Usually when I do a mix the switch I assign to it just turns the mix on or off.. I still have to use the the sticks to move the servos.. For instance. I have a 50% - 50% mix Aileron to Rudder that I fly with.. When I move the right stick the Ailerons deflect along with the Rudder..
What I'm asking for is with the flick of a switch only (without the use of the stick)
the Elevator & Rudder deflect to the percentage I set..

Thanks

Does your radio have mixing with OFFET option.

If it does then you would create a mix Elevator to Elevator and then use offset and select the right switch.

On my radio here is what it would look like

MIX # what ever

Elevator > Elevator
Rate 0%
Rate 10%
Offset 100%

Switch on what ever switch available that I want to use.

Repeat the same process for the Rud to Rud mix using the same switch.

If you want the ELEVATOR to move up a little ALONG with the RUDDER going up for a launch purpose then I mean ELEVATOR TO ELEVATOR and a RUDDER TO RUDDER mix.

If you just want some rudder mixed in the elevator so that when you launch there is more rudder during launch then there would be during normal flight then it's the way you mean.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

Thanks Michael
This line of your first post to me means you want or need two mixes.

One for the elevator and one for the rudder.

This sound like you want those 2% compensation on a switch with no stick input, then what I suggestion is what you need.

You can get away with only using one mix for the rudder to rudder if you have a flap system that allows for elevator compensation and your not using flaps.

Ok.. I'm setting up the Elevator > Elevator just as you have it..
The only problem is I had zeroed out the default 50% in the offset earlier..
How do I change the offset using the dial selector..? It won't let me..
