Sorry to post what must have been answered before, but I have the mixer plugged into the receiver's gear and rudder channels, but the external mixer doesn't seem to be mixing as expected. The gear switch moves one servo and the rudder controls the other servo. If the mixer is connected, do I still need a radio mix to make this work?
I have two mixers and in case the mixer was bad I moved it to the ailerons and that seemed to work fine.
I have a JR 9503. build is a F22, Thanks

what a waste of resources! your tx is one of the best...do me a favor and give your mixer to anyone who needs it!
your tx can do the job in excellent way... just follow the 4x4 on and off thread.
Post #28 and 29 has one option to make airbrake in a twin tail airplane using channel 4 and 8, but it works with channel five, just re assigns the gear switch (it needs to work at center position and gear channel has two position switch by default)... this instructions comes from post #23, 4x4 on/off setting made in a good tx, like yours
good luck!

Thanks I appreciate the reply. I was hoping to place a gyro on the rudder which is why I wanted to use the mixer in the first place. If the mixer cannot do this I will create a mix in the radio, but as I mentioned I was hoping to use the gyro/mixer combo.

Okay, figured it out. I had to program the mixers, duh!

well, if you need the mixer (vtail or delta mixer), connect gear channel in elevator input and rudder in rudder (or aileron) input... just check polarity and it should work (black/brown cable to minus pin)
good luck!

What I ended up doing was setting the JR radio with no mixes, so that's "normal" wing and V-tail set to "INH" and no program mixes. Connected mixer for ailerons to aileron channel and aux channel, and mixer for the twin rudders rudder channel and gear channel. Then in the DRC-Link program the two channels to work with each other. My challenge was to read the DRC-Link instructions on how to program the mixers. Out-of-the-box the Desert RC mixers aren't programmed to mix anything.
