Thread: Eurofighter Programming Help / Canards and Retracts

    Talking Eurofighter Programming Help / Canards and Retracts

    JAY OR JASON - SEE THIS ANIMATED GIF - NOTICE HOW WHEN THE FLAPS are going to make the plane roll left or right, I DON'T think the canards are going in the correct direction as per the manual (step #55 and #56) or what i've seen in your flight video. Can you confirm or deny this?

    UPDATE (again on 3/20/2010)
    I needed to swap canard wiring to the opposite reciver ports (aux1/aux2) as per manual documented.

    Left Canard = Aux 1
    Right Canard = Aux 2

    I FOUND THAT to make all flaps/canards to work properly I had to configure
    Left Canard = Aux 2
    Right Canard = Aux 1

    Not sure if this is 100% correct for everyone else but it worked for me. I also needed to REVERSE - REVERSING SW in my DX7 for RUDDER (wheel steering/vector thrust). These were the only things different from the manual instructions.

    I have all the setting for my DX7 uploaded to my Flickr page...

    Yep, you caught us. We missed that the canards were working backwards for aileron function. We fixed it and made a new GIF. The GIF is correct and we put an addendum in the boxes before they shipped out. Make it do what the GIF does and you'll be set.

    Thanks for the reply Jason.

    The only other problem I'm having is "slop" in the landing gear retract system. I have them adjusted "mechanically" so they lock in place properly when the gear are down but when i have them go up there is not enough travel to bring them all the way up.

    Is there a way to adjust the travel (exceed standard 100%) of the gear servos in my DX7 like you can for alerons, rudders, flaps, etc?

    What are your suggestions for this?

    Yes, you can use the Travel Adjust menu to change the end points of the gear channel.
