Question
flaps and dual servo elevator on a dx6i?

hey there, I know this is not the radio forum but I am getting ready to post a build log and the scratchbuilt people seem very helpful with everything. so that being said, I have a dx6i with a 6ch rx, I have a plnae I am building that has ailerons,flaps,rudder, and dual servo elevator. so is there a way I can do this on the dx6i with out a y-lead? the problem I have is when I set it up in a mix to the gear channel it listens to the gear switch too and and when I switch the gear switch it goes to the side but still listens to elevator. how can I dsable the gear switch? or is there a better way to do this? any help would be gretlly appreciated. thanks

Won't you run out of channels, or are you running only one aileron servo?
:
Throttle
Aileron 1
Aileron 2
Elevator 1
Elevator 2
Rudder
Flaps

Here are some solutions:

i am using a y-lead for the ailerons,a y-lead for the flaps but am out of y-leads long enough for the elevator. So that is what i am figuring out.

is easy to disable the gear switch with a little program mix:
master GEAR
slave GEAR
mix -100% in both ways
switch ON (always on)
that's all
