Not sure what’s going on???

If you post a log from the flight controller we can see what is going on rather than guessing.

Shouldn’t the forward motor be plugged in to channel 3 like a standard fixed wing?

Sounds good… I’m new to Pixhawk, so not sure which log I should post. Let me know and I will post it right away.

The VTOL fun cub docs say the following for Aux channels…
Right Aileron is Aux1
Left Aileron is Aux2
Elevator is Aux3
Rudder is Aux4
Motor is Aux5

Here is a log I just generated… honestly I’m not sure how to read it, but any help would be appreciated.

Right you are. I had a look at the manual. I’m not familiar with that setup. Are your running PX4? I noticed you have posted on those forums as well so hopefully someone will be able to help you soon.
