    Dumb question - but why the need for a V tail mixer? Airbus are not V tailed ..

    If it is for additional control authority in roll and bank, surely Elevon mixing would be a better option?WTWUK2013-08-04 00:12:24
  • In the instructions they tell you to mix Elevon and Aileron so that all 4 control surfaces move together during turns. I have my A320 set up with conventional Elevator and Ailerons, it flies and turns just fine without all the fancy mixing.

    The A320 is the exact same airplane as the 380 except for 2 motors instead of 4.

    I did however have to run the Elevator servos to separate channels and mix since one needs to be reversed.

    Ah I see why - it has no rudder. So I suppose the V-Tail mix is to prevent that 'yank and bank' effect.

    I would add a rudder servo meself. Nice looking thing too!

    I can only help with v_tail rudder control.



    Up elevator = both sides go up

    Down elevator = both sides go down



    Left rudder = left elevator down / right elevator up

    Right rudder = left elevator up / right elevator down



    I do not understand why you would mix rudder to ailerons with v_tail mix ?
  • The instruction manual calls for elevon/aileron mix, to have all 4 control surfaces mixed together. It's not necessary though, conventional elevator and aileron controls work just fine on this plane. This plane has no rudder.speedy72vega2013-08-05 20:25:08

    That manual in the files tab is sooooo full of chinglish. No where in the 13 pages does it mention anything about elevons, but it does say to use a "Y line" for both sides and the diagram (elevator to aileron). I just hope the OP is a very good pilot or it's going to end in tears.

    Indeed. Up/down elevator would be very interesting with Elevator and Ailerons on a Y cable ...

    Personally I would set that up the same as speedy has done with his 320. No need at all for Y leads between Ail and Ele.

  • I don't have elevons programmed on mine at all. The elevator servos are on separate channels because one needed to be reversed. The Ailerons are on a Y harness. The plane flies great like this, no fancy mixing needed at all. The manual wants you to mix Aileron and Elevon for turning, I couldn't imagine flying it that way.
