Odd-Ball programming scenarios

I thought that the DX8 had the easiest programming features until I spent two minutes with an A9. After losing most of my planes due to lockouts/brownouts/whatever I'll be spending a lot more time with an A9.

Since basic programming is so easy, I thought I'd start a thread where we could challenge each other.

Here's my submission:
The subject is basically a three channel motor glider flown in Mode 2. It has double rudders activated by the aileron stick and actuated by two servos in the stab.
I think I've figured out how to get more deflection from the inboard rudder by limiting throws but I'd like to be able to do something a little different. With the left slider, I'd like to be able to turn them both outward as airbrakes and still maintain some directional control. Slider forward, rudders parallel; slider back,rudders split.
I don't mind digital trims that much, except on the elevator. For that, I like something a little more tactile; something I don't need to hear over engine noises and talking. Can I put the elevator trim on the right slider?
