Well, some fancier computer radios do allow more options than that,
like controlling how the control travel, adding exponential and the
like, but the very simplest radios with mixing have very few buttons.
Like my 3 channel Hitec with only 4 switches -- reverse on each
channel, and `enable mixing.'

Depends on how the servos are set up. If the servos point the same
way, a Y harness will make them move the same way, and if reversed, a
Y harness will make them move in different directions.
I suspect that you shouldn't ever need to swap the servo plugs
(because you can achieve the same goal in some other way), but in some
cases, it does make things work that were previously wrong.
| IIRC on the Futaba the elevon mix menu has a forward/reverse function.
To be fair, Futaba has put out many different radios with different
Somebody was asking which radios had the best ergonomics? I'm not so
sure about the ergonomics, but the easiest to program radios I've seen
have been the Multiplex.
