tandem rotor in tx ccpm mixing

So I've been hooked on the idea of a tandem rotor helicopter lately, but all mixing boards for this purpose are out of production as far as I can tell. This left me pondering doing the mixing in the tx using the many virtual channels Deviation tx provides.

What follows is part of the .ini file for the model config I've created.

Features:

- mixing to 2x 3servo swashplates plus throttle (7ch)

- easy adjustment of mixing percentages and curves (virt channels)

- separate elevator and differential collective pitch (DCP) mixes for FF

- a fancy layout to display stick and mixer ouputs seperately

- sticky throttle hold (Virt1)

- Ch 1: throttle

- Ch 2, 3, 4: front swash (2 forward, 1 rear)

- Ch 5, 6, 7: rear swash (2 forward, 1 rear)

For now it is a proof of concept with no hardware to test it on. Given my success with this config I am moving to do a test platform, but it'll be a while before I have time and some pieces arrive in the mail.

I'd love to hear what the community thinks of the viability of this approach, and yes I know there will be no stabilization.
