I was asked how I did this, so I cranked out this simple video:

Towards the end of the video, you mentioned you could Y harness the TV servo into the ailerons.

I'm sure you meant to say you could Y harness it into the rudder channel.

I just built the Hyperion Enigma, with TV. I decided things could get extremely squirrely on takeoff, so I have mine on a mix switch.

Here's a question, although it will sound crazy at first.
What if the motor could be switched to go to the opposite direction of the rudder?

Would this allow us, in a high crosswind condition, to keep the fuselage lined up straight with the runway, while the thrust from the rudder and motor was angled to take care of the crosswind?

I have the HK Yak also, although mine is a bit (much) more beat up than yours, I will have to try TV on it.

Nope, thats not what I said. Go to 2:45 and you will hear me say "If you use a Y harness on the ailerons, you can use a 5 channel RX. If you have the Ailerons wired separately, you need a 6 channel..."

My bad, somehow I heard, Y harness with the ailerons. I guess I was sleepy.
I would really like to fly my Enigma, but I just had knee surgery can't stand up long enough to go flying.
