Differential spoilers not working 3.0.1

APM plane 6.0.1

Have succesfully setup elevons using “New style elevon mixing EEPROM setup (ELEVON_OUTPUT option)”

Have tried connecting and assigning RC_FUNCTION 16 and 17 to different channels including 5,6 aux 1,2 but I am not getting any response at all from differential spoilers.

Hi Eaglei,
Differential spoilers can currently only be configured when using “old style” elevon mixing. It has not been implemented at all with the new ELEVON_OUTPUT style of mixing.
My apologies for the confusion about this. I have added a note to the docs.
Maybe you could open an issue for this on github.com/diydrones/ardupilot and I’ll try to fix it when I get time? (or if someone else volunteers that would be great!).
Cheers, Tridge

Ok thanks,

I notice that differential spoilers are setup together with elevon mixing there is no software mixing for rudder in MANUAL mode,

Is there a way to get this, or that would the equivalent of having the elevon output working with differential spoilers?
