Flaps and Spoilers

Can someone help me set-up flaps on my pizazz using my t6xa6 radio by futaba I don;t really understand flaps or spoilrs but i read "i added in spoilers and flaps to my pizazz and the plane with spoilers would drop like a brick and then flick off the spoilers and fly away like a butter fly" or something like that sounded like something that would be cool to add in!

I can't help you with the futaba. But maybe this will help:

Spoliers are surfaces which deflect upwards to spoil or kill the lift created by a portion of the wing. they can be located by anywhere along the wing including the trailing edge. Deflecting both ailerons up at the same times (called Spoilerons) works well, and is a simple thing to do.

Flaps are surfaces at the leading or trailing edge of the wing which when deflected downwards provide more lift to a portion of the wing. (leading edge flpas are not common in models - they are used on fighters and airliners) Flaps produce drag ...the more they are deflected, the more drag they create. Deflections greater than about 10 degrees produce much more drag than lift.

If you have a programable 2 position flap switch you can program both...the spoilerons become negative flaps........

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

I do remember that you need 2 servos on CH 1 and Ch 6. Look for the FLPR function and make sure it isn't INH. After that I can't remember. I'll try and look up my manual tonight. Did you check Futaba's web site in their FAQ.
