IMO a high end 7 ch radio that only allows a 4 ch wing to be setup in GLIDER mode is lame.
My old Futaba allows any ch to any ch mix with no switch to flip and the trim is slaved as well.
The fellow that I am building this for had a "magic Y" servo reverser that he was not using, so I will use it off CH6.
ch assign will be
1 ail
2 ele
3 throt
4 rudder
5 tow release
6 flaps with reverser
7 not used
Post #2 "Given the numerous set ups for one of those models, would need to know
how other channels are being used and which are still free. "

Mix Ch 6 to Ch 7:
Switch on the Eclipse 7. Depress both left hand Edit buttons at once
to enter the Set Up menu, then select "PMix 1".
Pull top left front switch forward to turn the mix "ON".
Use left or right cursor button to move flashing icon to set MAS to ch 6 and SLV to ch7.
To adjust throw in either direction, move flashing icon to the %,
then rotate knob left & right and adjust percentage.
[This is essential as Ch6 defaults to 30% - adjust ch6 in Set Up menu under "FLPT"]
Early Eclipse 7 did not have an extension on the ch6 knob. In need, drill and insert a small bolt
for easy finger tip operation. (Or acquire the later style knobs)
