I'm beginning to wonder how to set this beast up. I have a 9 channel JR 2.4 radio and I won't use servo reversers (I have a dislike for twitching, randomly moving control surfaces).
so, sometimes my solution when using a Y cable where you can't reverse the servo direction of one of the servos to make it go the right direction (like when you have flaps on a Y cable), I flip the servo over so the arm is on the other side to get the desired operation. (I prefer symmetry though if I can achieve it) but I call this asymmetrical.
With 2 aileron servos, 4 flap servos, two rudder servos, landing gear servo, nose steering servo, and wheel brake servo.
Obviously I will need to use some Y cables and so I guess I need to plan the geometry and channel usage of how to install the servos and where two servos will be connected to a single channel.
Here is what I'm thinking so far.
Ailerons separate channels, mounted symmetrically Aileron and Aux1
Outboard flaps, Y cable, mounted asymmetrically, aux3, mixed with LG?
Inboard flaps, Y cable, mounted asymmetrically aux2 channel, switch operated.
Throttle, throttle channel
Elevator, elevator channel
Rudders, Y cable, mounted asymmetrically, rudder channel
Wheel brakes, Y cable, elevator channel (same channel as elevator, but programmed to actuate the valve on down elevator)
Steering, Y-cable, Rudder channel
Retracts, retract channel (5)
So, does this look do-able? (JR X9303)
1 throttle --- throttle
2 aileron ---- right aileron
3 elevator ---- elevator, Y cable to Wheel brake servo
4 rudder ---- Y cables to two rudder servos
5 gear --- gear ---
6 aux 1 --- left aileron
7 aux 2 --- inboard Flaps, switch operated
8 aux 3 --- outboard flaps, mixed with Lg channel 5
9 aux 4 --- wheel brakes, mixed with down elevator
So, am I looking at this right?
