Using AP3.5 on a plane with no rudder?


New to the forum. Stoked to be here. Haven’t been able to explicitly find this answer on the forum:

Is it possible to use AP3.5/Pixhawk on a plane that doesn’t utilize a rudder? I have a tailless aircraft that utilizes elevons. Wondering if it would be possible to use AP3.5 with this particular setup?

Please forgive the naivety.

Absolutely, you can use a conventional layout without rudder or a tailless flying wing using elevons. In the radio calibration of mandatory hardware in the Mission Planner there are options for elevon setup and reversing of one or both elevons.

Really appreciate the information! Thank you for taking the time. Pretty stoked to give it a go :slight_smile:
