D12 - RADIO - What are the
MIX settings for ?
settings are mostly for use by fixed wing (plank) pilots who want to
have a relationship between typically throttle and another channel.
Most often this is for fixed wing aircraft with elevons and similar
controls that benefit from mixing aileron and elevator settings
together to make the elevons work correctly..
You can mix
most channels with most other channels on the modern radios, but for
helicopter pilots, it is rare for them to be used as they are not
use with a helicopter is when using a rate only gyro (or even when
not using a gyro at all) to mix rudder with throttle so that as you
increase the throttle, the rudder also moves to counter the
natural rotation of the helicopter due to the main blades
rotation. But with modern heading hold gyros, you should NOT
us mixing at all, as this will mess up their inbuilt sensing.
helicopters, it is a good idea to always ensure that the Mixes are
INHibited in the radio
