i don’t know if anyone still uses these forums, but my devo’s having Problems again.

basically, forwards is where right turn is supposed to be on the right stick - like the whole thing’s been rotated 90 degrees and i’d really rather get it back to normal than relearn how to drive.

i’ve tried swapping ele and ail in the src window in mixers, but that hasn’t done anything. reversing the scale also seems to have not helped. anyone know how to sort this out?

Hi Ellis

It sounds like one of your drive motors could be soldered in backwards (I'm guessing the left one if forward on the stick is making you turn left). You can fix it by pushing forward on the stick, seeing which wheel spins the wrong way & swapping the motor round. If this fixes the forwards & backwards but left & right are still backwards then reversing Ail should solve it.

Admittedly there may be some way to fix this on the Devo but you'll have to ask someone smarter than me I'm afraid. If you haven't yet you could try switching to an unused model to see how that effects it.

ok, thanks! i was hoping swapping motors would be my last resort since i previously swapped the wires on the right motor and nothing, but i'll try again i guess :P
