How to program a 'crow'?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi, I'm back again with more glider questions...I have a Diamond 2500 glider in which, I have installed flaps and have sucessfully programed my Spectrum 7i to operate using the three position flaps toggle. A recent flight in strong winds prompted a discussion at the club about programing a 'crow'...?

If I understand it right, you program a mix that lowers the flaps whie raising the ailerons....can this be done in a way you still have some control of the ailerons? Can it be done so only one switch needs to be activated? I believe all this can be programed into the transmitter? Help!...Need the council of one more experienced in this !
Thanks, Gord

Re: How to program a 'crow'?

Every radio is different, you have DX7s as far as I can guess not 7i., I am also assuming 6 channel rx.
The glider is a basic 4 servo wing glider, here is a setup for a Radian Pro, also a 4 servo wing glider for DX7s, exact same settings. You need to use a y cable to hook up the 2 flaps together to one channel on this setup, but that makes it much simpler. Go to this site and follow the instructions. This kind of control may be overwhelming for a beginner.

I used this site as a quick reference to setting up my first glider. Hope it helps.

Stealing is bad!
