JR662 with flaps?

Love the radio, can't seem to figure out the flaps

The plane is MM Mini-Flash 2HS55ail, 2JR241rud,ele
Flap is on with switch on flap toggle, this works perfect but when I shut the flaps off the ail angles down to give lift.

Everyother trim, sub trim and all are normal.

I have yet to fly it to tell ya more but is this normal?

I have a 642 and a 652 and I'm guessing the 662 is not a lot different.

By your servo setup it sounds like you're using the flaperon setup in the radio, right?

What you could try (why oh why is this not in the manual???) is to check your flap travel. If you haven't changed it, it's probably +/- 100%. You will probably want +X%/-0% (or vice versa) so that the ailerons are in their neutral position with the flap switch off.

If the 662 is the same as the earlier models, adjusting/matching your aileron travel can be a pain too, because the aileron adjustment only affects the servo plugged into the aileron channel. A fellow Ezoner (HarryC) helped me out on this - Use the dual rate adjustment on the aileron channel to get the aileron plugged into the flap channel just right, and then match it using aileron travel adjust.

Check this thread http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...threadid=69977 for Harry's explanation about the flap and aileron settings.

Good luck - the Mini Flash looks like a lotta fun!
