Part 7: Elevon Mixing

Elevon Information Theory

Motion Rules
  • elevator back: elevons up
  • elevator forward: elevons down
  • aileron left: left elevon up, right elevon down
  • aileron right: right elevon up, left elevon down
  • Mix the elevator stick on both channels.
    The value will be either 50% or -50%, depending on how your servos are set up.
    If the control surfaces move in the wrong direction, swap the sign.
  • Mix the aileron stick on both channels.
    The multiplex parameter will be "add", and the values will also be 50% or -50%.
    Proper motion:  when the stick moves left, the left control surface should raise and the right control surface should lower.  Vice versa for moving the stick right.
Example Mix

Ch 2  Ele    50%
  +=  Ail   -50%
Ch 3  Ele   -50%
  +=  Ail   -50%

  1. Question: my F22 has four channels and inputs rudder to the elevons by slightly raising one control surface. So would that mix by 40/40/20 as a starting point.
