Don't think you can use flaperons with the Flash 4, you'll need the Flash 5.

I concur... The manual states that you use channel 5 for flaperons... (I have a 5x... LOVE it!)

Hobby-horse will split up a kit and sell just a transmitter... Personally, I can use all the RX's I can get!

If your handy with a soldering iron, you can upgrade that flash4 to a flash5.

If I've got enough time this A.M., I'll dig through my favs and see if I can find that link and post it.

Flaperons


Rocken, you didn't mention the model to which you're considering adding flaperons, but you must realize that doing this should only apply to planes with full length (strip) ailerons. So-called "barn door" or conventional scale type ailerons shouldn't use the flaperon mode. Tex.

Cool, I'm glad it's working for ya.

Never tried it myself(I've got the 5), although I've thought about hitting that 4th button and exploring that extra menu.
