Need help setting up Hitec Flash5 sys-x on wing with elevons!

I have a Hitec Flash5 sys x
Radio on Arco. I have elevon mix on.

What plugs do I use for elevons? Channel 1 and 2?

Here is what it is doing....I get up and down correct when moving the stick forward and aft, but when turning, left to right it is backwards!

Funny thing is I tried flying it this way today...LOL...I did learn that this wing is tough as it hit pretty hard with out any damage...got to love epp foam!

I had the same problem with my UFO at first. You do use channel 1 and 2. It took me a few tries, but I ended up having to reverse channels 1 and 2 AND swap the servo plugs between ch1 and ch2.

On any elevon/vee-tail setup, get the elevator function working properly.
Then if the right-left is backwards, all you have to do is swap the channels.
