Why would you need two free mixes? You can do dual elevators with just one, at least I did for years before I quit running dual servos. You need to ensure that the mix will carry the trim function from the master channel to the slave otherwise you will only be trimming one elevator half at a time which is a problem. All the 8 channel and up computer radios will be capable of this, possibly some of the 6 channels. Using electronic mixing is the best way to do this, just makes it so easy

Dunno Chad, just the way I did it I guess...

I guess you can mix any free channel into the elevator (which controls the one half) right?

When I was doing it I was still using JR, with my 388 system it was one half in ch1 I think, the other into ch7 then I needed to use a mix with trim (either mix 5 or 6 I think). You would use the ATV to set the masters throw and use the mix percentage to get the other side to match. It worked pretty slick, but incosistencies in servos made it difficult to get them to match in between the end deflections. Probably the digital servos would be much better than what I was using.

I know that Futaba incorporates an ailevator feature which can be used to run two elevator servos, but it only goes down to the 8U series.
