I am trying to slave the elevator servo but cant figure out how to programm the radio to accept it! (instead of using a y harness on elevator servos)!

I got 1 elevator working!
plugged the second elevator servo in channel 6 of the receiver!

How do I get the second elevator to ch/mix!

Anybody know how?

Is channel 6 not normally for flaps? If so, it is probably assigned to a tohggle switch or rotary knob, so you would have to inhibit the switch assignment to allow normal mixing. Just wondering if this channel gives
the same amount of travel in degrees.

He's right... channel six is normally used for flaps.

To slave that channel to the elevator, first go into the travel settings for the flap channel and set endpoints for the flaps to "0" for both flaps up and flaps down positions of the flap toggle switch. This will prevent one elevator from going up/or down if you have the flap switch in the wrong position.

Then go into the "etc" menu and use one of your two "freeform" mixes to mix elev master to flap slave and use 100% mixing. You may have to make it -100% if the slaved elevator half moves the wrong way.

I'm doing this from memory as the manual is under a pile of junk at the moment, but I think that should do the trick.

There is however, one problem. The elevator trim settings will not carry over to the slaved channel. So, if you start with both elevator halves centred and then move the elevator trim, only the "master" elevator half will move.

Because of this, you may be better off using a Y-cord.
