Default Whoops...

I've added ailerons to my Super Cub but I think I installed the servos the wrong direction.

I have to reverse channels 1 and 5 to get them to move correctly:

Stick to the right, right aileron goes up, left goes down and vice versa...

Not a big deal except that I can't use the Guardian Gyro I have as an "oh crap!" plane saver.

With the Guardian all connected, the ailerons work fine via the stick but don't provide the right roll correction.

Sigh...

Flying more, crashing less. Feels great!

Just reverse the direction of the roll gyro gain by turning the gain adjuster to the opposite side of centre That's a normal part of setting up a gyro.
