I am currently using a Psyko as my #1 TD/F3J ship. I got mine going the weekend before team selection in New York, and I liked it enough to fly it all 20 rounds there. I'm not an expert on these rhings, but here's what I'm using, with some success-

1/16" reflex- GOTTA have this, "slope-tested" ;-)

3/16" camber on slider, about an eighth inch at the detent, which is all I usually use- but sometimes I like more, I use the camber slider almost like another control at times- something I've learned from hand-launch...

3/16" Camber-to-elevator, always on. (however I only use a tiny amount of available elevator, so the only time all this mix would happen would be a pylon- turn, or possibly pulling up for the zoom, or coring a tiny, nuclear thermal or...hey no wonder I love mixing!)

Anyway, your milage my vary, but I am very, very happy with how my Psyko flies, definetely a fun toy...
