Default DX7 Dual Servos Aileron set up problem

I can't figure this out. Must be missing something right in front of me.

This is on a DX7

I'm setting up dual servos on ailerons. I have the right aileron plugged into the aileron channel and the left one in the AUX channel.

I have wing type as Flaperons.

Everything works fine except my direction is reversed, meaning left stick results in right aileron up and right stick equals left aileron up.

When I reverse the servos, the ailerons act in tandem both up, both down.

When I reverse the plugs in the RX that does not solve it either. What am I missing here?

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff,
Don't think it can be a bad servo or Rx because the 'reversing' is done in the Tx

When you have flaperons set then you need to reverse each channel individually. Reversing on the aileron channel will only reverse the servo that's connected to the aileron channel. If you want to reverse the other servo then you need to reverse the channel that it's connected to.. that would be channel 6 if you have it plugged into Aux 1.

Steve

PS.. sorry, i think you might have to look for another cause of your crash

Steve,

You got it right and you helped me catch a dumb mistake. I was bumping all the way down to channel 7!!! I was thinking last channel on the RX is last channel on the TX, wrong!! I knew it was something I was missing right in front of my eyes!!

THANKS!!
