Otto, you've got a good companion to have some fun like that! Enjoyed the show. Keep up the good work. I'll have to post a pic from yesterday's float fly when I transfer them to the computer.

Go to your Monitor page and make sure there are 2 channels moving when you move the ail. Then see what that other channel, the one that's not AIL, is. IIRC, it may use the gear output.
