How and what is best way of reverse aileron diff on Fut 9c?


Hi all

As we tend to land e glider with flaperon(actually spoileron since both aileron pop up), how and what is your setup of having aileron differential with Futaba 9C?

What I meant is that with airbrake mode on(both aileron up), when you need to turn, the aileron will move down more than up, as this is more effective since the pop up aileron prolly ran out of travel and also air effectiveness.

Obviously in normal flight mode without airbrake, your aileron is having normal differential ie more up travel vs down travel.

Any idea?

You could probably use the dual rate function and set your travels there.
You would have one rate for normal flying and the other rate for landing mode.

I use custom mixes on my 8U, as I have plenty of them, but I never thought of reversing the d/r settings with spoilerons enabled.
That said, I have mine set so I have positive movement at up to 50% spoiler application, then they flip to reverse above that (triggered by throtte/spoiler stick movement)..

I would not be concerned about your situation, as a lot of pylon racers fly with only one aileron. For precise control you'll want both ailerons to be functional, but when using spoilerons; your main goal is to just maintain a level wing heading (you should be flying straignt and level prior to engageing spoilerons).

You still need aileron control to keep the model straight and level!
