Hi FlightDeck. Your DX8 has the programming built in. You will plug you servos into the AIL and ELEV channels and set up the mixing in your DX8's Programming under 'wing/tail mix', If my memory serves me right you will than choose the ELVON or Vtail mixing.

And bobs you uncle Simple as that.

Hello Fellas,
I purchased from hobbyking 6channel orange rx receivers which I plan to use with my DX8 transmitter. Should I use a y harness for the servos for elevon mixing? Also, do I connect the leads to the aileron connection? I never flown wing planes yet so still new at the elevon thing? I appreciate some feedback thanks. (Flightdeck)

Help! Ju st fired up my Dx6i with versa wing. Connected as per manual and turning the right stick right elevaters go up, to the left down. If I push forward it is like ailerons turning pull back is turning the other way. So close but not right. How do I change this any suggestions. Thanks in anticipation.

I figured it out. I needed to turn the servo arms the same direction instead of pointing away from each other.

Using a dx4e.. built a versa wing and i have bound it. When i pull up or down on the stick it turns. When i puh left or right it goes up or down. I have the mix switch set to on. When i turn it off i only have alerons.

Anyone have luck mixing with a dx5e? No matter what I do controls are wrong. Left/right do up/down. Swapped wires reversed switches. If what I read it's not as easy as flipping a switch. Any help would be appreciated.
