I'm going to be ignored or joked about, but.....
This is my first wing, I'm a heli/quad copter guy.... And now that I have to link my servos on the Zeph I wonder how do I do it.... I have multiple input for 2 servos... Do I need mixing or "Y" wires to hook up? I'm a noob, sorry...

They need there own channel and mixing.
The same sevro that makes the plane go left and right also makes the plane go up and down.

usually need to plug the elevons into 2 channels and program the mix in the radio. Need to know which channels your radio uses for elevon mixing, so check the manual.

- unless you are using onboard mixing like I am (Eagle Tree) which still uses 2 channels from control input, but the servos are wired differently.

Thanks guys, so I guess the elevons and aileron will be in a Y cable to the servos and then do the mixing in the radio.... I'll read my maunal...I bought it in Honk Kong at the time, I'll have to download the english version from their site

Just so were on the same level.
There's only elevons on this wing. NO ailerons.

I had a hard time getting a handle on exactly how elevon mixing worked, so after I figured it out I wrote it up here:

http://eastbay-rc.blogspot.com/2011/...il-mixing.html
http://eastbay-rc.blogspot.com/2011/...culations.html

As everybody has pointed out, it's typical to have the servos on to separate channels and have your radio mix into elevon mode.

If you've got a Spektrum DX6i, there's a bug in elevon mixing and it doesn't work. Hance has a nice workaround here:

there is a bug? I have programmed elevons in my DX6i easy as pie on 2 planes. Plug the elevons into ch1 and 2, select elevons in the Wing-Tail Mix menu and make sure throws are the right direction. This took me like 30 seconds and I didn't even consult the manual and had never set up elevons before. Nowhere near as many steps as in the thread.

and Halford - just to be sure you understand, you cannot use any Y cable for elevons!
