Multiplex Easy glider Electric - Spoilers/Braking

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the forum so please be gentle! I have had the Easy Glider Electric for a few months now and have learn't to fly using it and the FMS sim. My radio gear is the Multiplex Cockpit SX and a Multiplex Rx7 reciever, so there are plenty of bells and whistles available on the Rc tx that are not used yet.

So far I have really enjoyed myself she flies like a dream, apart from the odd C of G snags. My question if anyone can help is - Is there a crow braking or spoiler facility available on the model, can the ailerons be programmed to both go up or down together to dump lift on finals as I'm having a problem with overshooting on landings because she just floats along at about a meter above the deck and doesn't take nicely to too much down elevator at that stage of flight (the mud accumilated on my spinner testifies to this).

If there is a facility can anyone talk me through it , does the elevator have to be mixed in up or down to compensate? I would like to learn how to carry out landings using this method as I have just bought a Graupner Junior Sport Plus with aileron spoilers and would like to practice on the Glider EE before I move up a grade to the Junior Sport.

Hope someone can help

Cheers for now Rick.

Hi Rick

You can program spoilerons or flaperons. I have tried both on the EG and feel that you can maintain better control using spoilerons, while still being very effective in landing. Either one will work. I don't have Multiplex, I use a 9C Futaba.

Just as a guide I think I use about a max of 40% for spoileron and only about 10% for elevator. You'll just have to experiment.

Fred,

Thanks for the prompt reply, are spoilerons the ailerons both going up together? If so have you programmed a button on you TX for that particular function?

Thanks

Rick
