Default Park T28D Trojan and DX6I Question

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for any help. I am new at this and simply want to get off to a good start. I put together my new T-28 and was able to bind it to my DX6I with no problems at all. When I tested the rudder control the rudder would turn the opposite direction than that of my supercub. I went into the DX6I controls and changed the rudder from normal to reverse. Did I do the correct adjustment so it now matches my supercub?, in other words when I press the stick left the rudder will now turn left when looking from behind exactly like my super cub and j3. Is there any other settings I need to adjust or shouold i just leave it alone.

Thanks so much for any advice.

Hi gmar777. First of all, WELCOME to WattFlyer!!
It's always great to see new faces in the clubhouse.

The short answer is "Yes, your rudder is now correct with no other changes necessary".

When Viewed from the REAR of your model:
- left rudder stick will move the rudder to the left. right = right.

- left aileron stick will move the left aileron upwards while moving the right one downwards, and vice-versa.

- Down (towards the bottom of the transmitter) elevator stick will move the elevator Upwards, and vice-versa.

I make that a part of every pre-flight check. Some folks just wiggle the sticks and make sure everything moves.

Best of Luck on the Trojan! I love mine.

Please call me John. I came up w/ Max2112 when I thought you were all internet predators after me Lucky Charms!!

Default Thanks

Hi Max,

Thanks so much. I appreciate your fast reply as it was very helpful. I will check the ailerons today as I did not even think about them being reversed as well. You probably saved me from a bad crash.

Take Care,

Glenn

Excellent advice. I changed out the aileron servos on my T34 (first non-foam plane) and didn't notice that they were reversed from the ones I replaced -- and took off that way!

I'm a newbie, so was EXTREMELY lucky to get it down undamaged.

Good luck and have fun!
