Multiplex Cockpit -- Rudder throttle mixing for twin?


I know this is possible with other radios, however, has anyone been able to do this with the limited mixing capability of the Cockpit? The goal would be mild yaw control with two motors.

I've done elevator-throttle mixing, but this is a different beast.

Turbines suck ;-)
I am reasonably sure you cannot do it through the standard mixers - maybe you can some how replace the control to the rudder (or 2 servo ailerons) with control to the left and right motors ?

THanks for the reply. I'm sure it could be done, but I'd propbably have to move several of the channels on the mother board around making it a radio dedicated to that aircraft.

If you use a 2 aileron set up to control two speed controllers and then have rudder / elevator control only it may work.

This will give you differential motor control only, and deprive you of a common throttle function. I don't know the Cockpit's capabilities, but if you can mix in flap and use that for throttle control I think you're there.

I think that would work.

Brilliant. Let me have a go at this and I'll report back.

Right stick will be rudder/elevator (which I have to use anyway for my 4 channel rx flying wings).

Left stick will be setup for dual ailerons with flaps mixed in.
