Ryan it's time for you to grow up and learn to fly like a man.... with rudder...

Why not set it up where the ailerons working as ailerons only,,,,only go up and not down at all in mix 1 for flying right side up and only down and not up with mix 2 for flying upside down. They you can get by without using the rudder..

Yes I agree! The 4Site makes you use rudder with aileron or coordinated turns. I am a Heli flier so I'm use to it.

No

Rudder right; aileron left

I can use both as I fly helis too remember bob?
Lol

I just thought that this mix might help coordinate aileron turns so tue plank doesn't pitch as much.

Yea that's what's making me tease you so much,,,, as usually heli pilots are good with the rudder.. I have been noticing that even outside flying the little Champ that I find myself using the rudder stick more than the aileron stick when in slow flight and taking off and landing and the right stick for flying and whipping it around the sky.. even though both actually control the rudder.. Just shows that even I can remember and use skills that I pick up 40 years ago when flying 4 channel underpowered heavy airplanes that required coordinated turns just to keep them in the air.. To me this is still the most fun, how slow can I make it go without it falling out of the sky... Was flying the Champ today on fresh snow and was able to make many landings without making a ski mark on the snow.. It was a little bit windy,,, And cold but boy was I having fun...

Ok I fallowed the instructions and it still doesn't work. When I flip the flap switch the ailerons go in different directions. If I reverce the aileron it flips the controls, and if I reverce the aux1/flap it does nothing!
