Hobbyzone Glasair

Having been in the hobby some 15 years ago, I'm not new to flying but thought I'd start out at the beginning. I purchased the Glasair and a Spektrum DX7S. I'm having a problem changing from 2 aileron servos with a Y connector to 2 servos with independent wires. The receiver (HBZ7651) has 2 aileron ports. When I connect the wires I get flaps in both direction and not the normal 1 UP and 1 DOWN.

PS. still learning how to program the radio so be nice.

With the 7S you have the option to select wing type you do this by holding the roller and then powering up the TX but make sure you were on the correct model before doing this. once you turn on with roller pressed in you will get a menu option, scroll down to 'wing type' and select this and then you have options for many wing types and you want to select 2 aileron servo wing. once done just come out of the menu and should be working.

i am not sure what the difference is between the receiver you have and the normal AR600 receiver but with the AR you would use the AIL and AUX for the ailerons.

hope this helps

It's not a transmitter issue, it's the receiver. The second aileron port in the Sportsman receiver is just that - a reversed aileron port, but it's the same channel. In the Sportsman, you must use the Y-harness to achieve proper aileron function.

Don't despair the purchase of the 7S, however. It's still a great transmitter! You can still use it for making custom dual rate and expo settings to tune the feel of the airplane to your own personal flying style. And of course it will be handy once you start picking up all the various Bind-N-Fly airplanes and helis that are available.
