Their customer service was amazing, and from what I understand, they have a reputation in the industry for excellent customer service and support.

Glad you got a replacement! From what I understand, it's a fun little bird...

Thanks so much for your replies both jrjr and Bob. Much appreciated. Is it a common fault?

That answer depends on your transmitter. It either has a real switch on it somewhere to reverse the direction of the servo or it is done in programming. Refer to your transmitter manual.

I have a DX8. I will check the manual. The weird thing is, the ailerons became additional elevators for no apparent reason.

Select a "fresh" model memory, bind the Beast to it, and check the controls.

Doesn't the Beast use a "Y" adapter? Can't do anything about that from the transmitter.

Erkq,

The aileron servos plug in separately. Switching from single-channel, dual-servo ailerons to dual-channel ailerons is done on the brick, via stick-position programming.

Oh... cool... I'm not keeping up. I thought the guys playing with flaperons had to open up and re-plug. Thanks.

BTW, I know flaperons don't work with AS3X.
