The spec wing motor hits hard for a small wing, so a little anti-torque roll mix is in order. There are so many different ways to do this. The video just shows one way. I realized during edit the logical switch isn't needed, but I kept it because I'll use the logical switch to trigger other actions like an audio track informing me the mix is active.

Used to pushing sticks in and down to arm your model? This video shows how to do it for models without a flight computer.
Edit: Using the sticks as the source on the logical switches avoids the rates caveat I mentioned in the video.

The maiden was a little hairy. I slowed it down a little, reduced the FC gain, and tuned the radio. Very different flight the 2nd time:
