Default Lightflite 23" Bug

I was reading an old post in a forum about Airflite.com's lack of customer service. WHAT CUSTOMER SERVICE? I have a question about the Bug. For the 2 servos that control the elevators, is 1 connected to the Rx elevator function and the other to the Rx aileron function? How then do the 2 elevators function together? I can envision only 1 of the elevators moving for either function.

The plane is an elevon set up and the mixing for the ailerons and elevator is usually done in the radio. Then you just have to swap the connections and the reversing until it works correctly.

Thank you Flubber! I stand corrected on the AirFlite.com customer service comment I made. It's ok and at times the response is slow, but he warns you about that on the web site..

Got my New DX6 radio and trying to get my Bug hooked up. Can anyone tell me the proper settings? I had this working years ago with my DX7 radio the way it is connected now but what do I have to set on the DX6 to get things right? Can't remember a thing about it. Haven't flown in years. Thanks Ron

I think I have it right. I have to reverse up and down somehow and I have fluttering in the servos. Thanks Ron
