Here is my typical mix and switch set for my full house pure gliders, such as my Supra. These are all predefined mixes in my 9C Super. All servos are on their own channels using 7 channel receiver. All of these mixes are predefined so I just select them and fill in the percentages. The 9C has 8 switches (2 3X) 3 dials and two sliders. In this set-up I don't use the silders or the dials.

Basic stuff = end point, sub trim, servo reverse

Always on

Aileron differential of about 60%
Flap to elevator on left stick for landing control.
On some I use crow/butterfly rather than just flaps, but mostly I just have flap to elevator.

Flight modes - The following are on switches so I can go to presets.

Launch, cruise and reflex are one a single 3 way switch.

Launch - full trailing edge (flaps and ailerons) down 20%
cruise - normal flight
reflex- trailing edge up about 2 mm with elevator trim change

thermal - trailing edge down about 4mm with elevator trim change

On switches so I can add or remove the mix in flight

aileron to rudder - Like to fly rudder manually in thermals.

Expo on a single switch that changes expor for ailerons, and elevator to about about 50%, when in thermals.

Aileron to flaps so flaps follow at about 50% down and 10% up - used mostly in wind

Timer so I can time my flight - beeps every minute and beeps every second from 9:50 to 10 minutes, but keeps going if I don't stop it.

For an e-glider I would put throttle on a switch, 3 way if, possible.

Thinking of a Supra off the winch, what mixing am I not using that I should? Or, what mixing am I fussing with that you would recommend I skip?

Any input is appreciated.

Best regards,
