Default Controller Setup for Mikeys RC project.

Hey guys,
I have built a Mikeys RC Sport Trainer.

But I am unsure about how to program the FS-T6 that I bought for this plane.
I am using a setup without rudder.

Could someone give me some instructions on what to do?

I am good at navigating menus on the controller and changing settings, so you don't have to go into that much detail.

Your help is VERY appreciated!

I just built his spitfire (It's done except installing servo's and rods.) I have your same radio too, what are you having an issue with? As far as setting up the radio? Since you have two servo's for the Aileron's i think (Have not had a plane yet with 2, 1 for each) i think you have to set 1 to channel 1, and the other to channel 6 (And some other mixing settings), again i will have to do the same thing, but have not got that far on mine yet. I will wait and see other's responses as i will have to do the same as you.

The easiest way to run two aileron servos is to plug them in to a Y connector and plug that in to your aileron channel. No need for setting up mixes on the transmitter when you use a Y connector.

That would make more sense (I guess now that i think of it, that's how my wing surfer works)

Do you just physically reverse one of the servos then? (one aileron has to go up and the other down)

The y connector, and connected to your servo port on your receiver (Yours is port 1) should do it automatically, you only have to reverse it if when you move the stick to the right, the left aileron go's up instead. (You just have to position the servo arm in the right place for each one by testing and adjusting as needed)

Rule of thumb for using a simple Y connector is to place the servos mirror opposite to each other. That way they will move in the opposite direction of each other once installed even though they are technically moving in the same direction.

So if you face them both out it will be correct, and do the opposite? Thanks (sorry about jumping in here, but i am at the same point with magaudio on building a scratch plane)

Place them both with the control arm out or both in mirror opposite to each other.. One or the other. Do not place them with one in and one out or they will move the same way.

If you do want to use 2 servo's without a y harness, i found this for our radio. Plug the left aileron in channel 6 and the right aileron on channel 1. Then go to your menu and to setup and choose the mix menu, and put these setting's in. Have not tried it yet , will tonight (I ordered a y harness, but will see how this works tonight)


Mix #1
Mix is On
Master Ch1
Slave Ch6
Pos. mix 100%
Neg. mix -100%
Offset 0%

It work's perfect, my spitfire will be done today!, and i will go out and crash it after work tomorrow! LOL! (I hate crashing, but i think half the fun of this hobby is putting it back together)
