The elevon travels must be set correctly in order to obtain a balanced control response: the elevators should deflect up (stick back towards you) by about 12 mm, and down (stick forward) by about 10 mm. Set the aileron travels to + 10 mm / - 13 mm (negative differential). If you cannot set these
travels by making adjustments at the transmitter, you will need to re-position the pushrod connectors on the elevon horns.
The neutral position for the first flight should be approximately 2 mm “up”. With the model set up in this way, you will usually need to apply slight down-trim for general flying. After the first landing mark the correct elevon setting on the fins using a waterproof felt-tip pen. When you fly the model, trim both elevons “up” by about 1 mm, i.e. 1 mm above the marked points. After the initial climb to height, move the elevator trim back to centre for the remainder of the flight.
