None really, just set the aileron to come up and the central flap to down (3 surfaces on the Bluto) operated by the throttle stick.

I adjusted for the maximum amount of down flap I could get with my linkages.
Then adjusted the amount of up going aileron (which is of course also elevator) to balance the model.
If needed a curve could be put against this, but I didn't bother - it was good enough - more time may make it better.

Took one attempt to adjust and I haven't changed it since. I could adjust linkages to allow for greater amounts of down flap, as I hadn't built it with this in mind, but it doesn't need it it is easy to land and slows by about half under crow.
A little bit of flying / positioning on the hill and it lands lovely.
