Need help wiring up Thrust Vectoring on f-16

I have this plane: http://www.bananahobby.com/2149.html

I have a Spectrum DX7 with a Spectrum 6 channel receiver and I do not know how to wire this thing. It came with zero wiring diagram. I do know that the left side ailerons and elevators are wired together on the same connector and the same with the right side. The thrust vector has 2 servos for up/down and left/right. Where do I wire these into and do they need to be Y connectored to something else? Any help/ideas/input is greatly appreciated. I am at a stand still as of 2 weeks ago and I cannot figure it out on my own. If there is a picture diagram of the wiring that would be best. I 've been in the hobby for 2 months now and I have a t-28. I wanted to go faster and this plane was 109 bucks so I thought what the heck. I thought it would all be easy plug and fly but my inexperience is getting me here. I am sure I need to mix some things as well on the radio but I need to get wired first so any info on the radio mixing is also appreciated. Thank you for your time and effort in advance.

Ok I got it figured out and I will post the details later. Right now I need to get my plane replaced due to a manufacturers lack of glue usage on both my elevators.

There is an entire thread dedicated to this f16. Do a search and you'll find it. The airframe is wonderful, but the stock electronics are garbage. good luck!

I tried to search the forums but I am not very good at finding what I'm looking for I guess. Thanks for the tip, any chance you can link that thread? Thanks.

Type in "Blitzrcworks BZ-16 Pro 3d" into the thread search function. Lots of good info there including the elevator mod. The elevator is a weak point of this bird.

Thanks, I found that out yesterday when the elevator came off. I'll check it out though.

Sorry I am using a Spectrum which, with some help, I finally got working although I have not used the thrust vectoring at all yet.

Burned out the motor today and now I am back on the forums searching for what people have had success with as far us motor/esc upgrades. I am going to replace it all. I figured I'd fly it until they died. That came sooner than I thought.
