Hi Chris,

I'm using Cockpit SX so I don't know if the following is useful or not but on my NXT I used the MENU>CONTROL>FIX set up. The FIX is the momentary button top left of the transmitter also called 'Teacher' for buddy boxing. Holding the FIX gives pre-set values for elevator, aileron and rudder and deactivates the main sticks. You turn it on by changing it from 0 to 1 in the menu, and assigning values with FIX AI, FIX EL and FIX RU. Like you I used it for momentary pitch/initial rotation in the throw. The Royal may be different obviously but I'd guess that Multiplex would use the same terminology (which is sometimes rather dense  Lips sealed Roll Eyes)

Hi Jon

 Thanks, I think the Royal has slightly different programming to the SX so I don't have a FIX option but I'll explore using the trainer function to activate it. I was using the 'tow release' function in the tx to send a fixed input to the elevator but doing this only allows one function. I then was trying to add a free mix to add in aileron and rudder to the tow release. The mix works but only when the rudder stick is moved Undecided . I was hoping setting an offset would move the servo but it seems not  Undecided

I will try the FB group that John suggested, someone must have done this before with the Royal TX

Slow Lizard, Cannock looks a pleasant place to fly. A mate of mine comes from around there and flies gliders and coupes - Gman he calls himself (hello Gavin  Cheesy)

Hello Peter, Dusan (Slow Lizzard??!!) was flying with Ivan Taylor on Cannock Chase. I've shared several emails with Dusan since we met at the FF Forum and then at the Birmingham Coupe event. I didn't know he was on Hippocket and that moniker???

Hi Gavin, long time no see as the saying goes! When are you coming to see the chaps in London then, and have a pint or two in the Kent!!

Dusan is getting his teeth into P30s and says he hopes to come to the Oxford/Dreaming Spires comp! I liked your writeup in February's Aeromodeller on the Coupe de Brum and it is a pity the wind was not behaving itself, never mind.
