When you select model and wing (swash) types, you will find that the optimized combinations of servo output channels and functions have been already preset. If you would like, you can freely change combinations of servo output channels, functions (aileron, elevator, etc), and input controllers (sticks, switches, trim levers and trim switches).
*You can also assign the same function to multiple servo output channels such as assigning elevator function to CH2 and CH3.
VC1~VC4 (virtual channels) These four channels can be set as virtual functions that do not have servo output channels. You can freely change combinations between functions (aileron, elevator, etc) and input controllers (sticks, switches, trim levers and trim switches). Servo Output Channels For PCMG3 mode, you can set twelve linear channels and two digital channels. For PCM1024 mode, you can set eight linear channels and one digital channel. For PPM mode, you can set only eight linear channels.

This mix operates the camber flaps (FLP1/2) in the aileron mode. When the aileron stick is manipulated, the ailerons and camber flaps perform aileron operation simultaneously and the operation characteristic of the roll axis is improved.

(Effective only when 2 servos used at the elevators)
This function improves the operating performance of the roll axis by operating the elevators as ailerons. Ailevator is where each elevator in a standard (conventional) or v-tail moves independently, like ailerons on a wing. In addition to each elevator side moving up and down together, each side moves in opposite directions when moving as an Ailevator. On can serve the same purpose. Typically, both Ailevator and ailerons are coupled together to maximize roll performance, especially on larger wingspan planes.
ELEVATOR (AILERON 5) ELEVATOR 2 (AILERON 6)
<Model Menu (Airplane/Glider Functions)> 101
This function adjusts the left and right rudder angles of airplanes with winglets. Winglets are used to improve the efficiency of aircraft lowering the lift-induced drag caused by wingtip vortices. The winglet is a vertical or angled extension at the tips of each wing. Winglets work by increasing the effective aspect ratio wing without adding greatly to the structural stress and hence necessary weight of its structure - an extension of wing span would also permit lowering of induced drag, though it would cause parasitic drag and would require boosting the strength of the wing and hence its weight - there would come a point at which no overall useful saving would be made. A winglet helps to solve this by effectively increasing the aspect ratio without adding to the span of the wing.

This function lets you set the operation speed when the motor of a F5B or other EP glider is started by switch. The operation speed can be set in 2 ranges of slow speed flight and high speed operated as a safety function by setting 2 switches.

Use this mix when you want to suppress the reaction torque generated by main rotor pitch and speed changes during pitch operation. Adjust so that the nose does not move in the rudder direction. An acceleration function which temporarily increases the correction rate at throttle stick acceleration/deceleration operation can be set. The mixing rate at acceleration/deceleration can be set. However, when a GY Series or other heading hold gyro is used, since correction is performed by the gyro, this mix is not used.
