Can't Find Rudder on Optic 6

Hi everyone,

My EZ is ready to go. When I was setting up everything I had the rudder servo working perfectly. Now, after I have it together I seriously can't find the rudder servo to test it. I believe it is turned off somewhere but I can't find the blessed thing in the programming menu. It is on channel 4 and I believe I have something set so the rudder isn't being used.

Note: it is not just inhibited, I can't find the option to change it from inhibited to ON. I know this is a really lame question but I'm very frustrated and hoping someone with an OPTIC 6 can help or if anyone has experienced the same.

Note Deux: The servo was working before I installed everything. Also before I sealed up the plane. I'm nearly positive it is just a programming issue. The elevator and motor works fine.

Maybe one of the dual rate switches is turning it off? I don't know...help.

Here's a quick way to eliminate programming issues with the transmitter. If you have a model memory that is not being used, change to that setup and then try your rudder again, if it still doesn't work try swapping the elevator and rudder leads at the receiver to isolate the problem.
Good luck,

It's plugged in in reverse or it's now unplugged?

Is this a 3-channel plane (RET)? If so, then connect the rudder servo to channel 1 to control it with the right stick.
