Bug in Vtail mix/trim


Bug in Vtail

Hello.

I am suffering a problem with using the a9. I have discovered that if you use a vtail the elevator trimmer doesn't work properly. I thought my model was not flying right on sunday.

When you try to trim the elevator function one of the servos (the one assigned to rudder) moves a lot more than the other one (the elevator).

I have version 1.09 installed. I don't remember this being an issue with 1.08. Is it possible to degrade the software to get it working properly again.

It is a major problem as most of my models are vtails.

How do you report things to hitec?

Are any of these features trickling down to the original A9?

Going by the red gimbals and black rather than grey finish, its probably a pre-production sample that uses the plastics off the standard A9, but with new A9X internals.

New features = more memory = wishful thinking!

I also like the range test button.

I like the range test button, however one minor compliant or warning:
It's very close to that deadly scan button!!
I hope that has a very big warning when that's pressed...

God, I hate that scan function/button. Here is the text of the government approved warning: "DANGER, Will Robinson!"
