Ken, I will try to post the file. Page 5 is where the onboard servo reversing is.
If that is what you are asking for.

FYI Mine flies perfectly with the RX on top, battery on bottom- What a wonderful plane!! I can't wait to make it significantly smaller and faster

Thanks, DZ1SFB!

Had some leftover gray Depron and thought this would make and thought this would make cool Micro StingRay with a brushless set up on a vapor brick with a Steve converter.

I am glad to hear that progress is being made on overcoming some of problems with different bricks. I just got a clone brick off of Ebay of the 6400. It binds well, but one servo is on the elevator stick and the other on on the rudder stick on the left. I was able to add a mix so that the right stick controls the rudder servo, but working out the elevon details is the next trick. Maybe try V tail mixing.

Best wishes to all,
Ken

Okay, just got done testing and the v-tail mix works perfect for the brick on the bottom setup for the AR6400.

Here is the setup and mix;
1. Reverse the Elevator
2. Aileron > Elevator, Rate: +100%, +100%

That is all.

Dx6i settings

When the Dx6i first came out I a problem with the mix on a wing. I'm not sure if this is the problem your having but I called Horizon and found the book was misprinted. I can not remember the fix.

Mix 1 AIL to Ele
-100 -100

Mix 2 Ele to AIL
+100 +100 No reverses No wing tail activations.

This plane is a winner. Flew out of hand straight and level, turned rolled on very low rates but needed speed to loop. Flew even better upside down. This will be great for anyone wanting to do indoor combat.
Mine would loop very quickly from level but has the mustang motor. It was a little sensitive to control but everyone was impressed with it. once I get it dialed in it will be Awesome. Thanks Ken for sharing the plans.

I would still like to have an answer as to why our transmitters program differently than everyone elses?????? Anybody

Razor, do you need the mix for the 6i? I have the mix for the Champ rec on bottom and the mix for theMSR brick. Msr brick doesnt have as much throw but shortening the control horns fixes this. Also for the 6400 in normal position. Now that I can reverse onboard servos I may be able to mix for 6400 on the bottom. All with 6i TX

I did the exact same as you did and it works.

I've done it another way before as well I think


this way for brick on top. Although I prob could have done it different
