DX7 programming combine flaps and ailerons ..How?

I have a DX7 and would like to know how to program this so that I can combine the flaps with the ailerons (to achieve full length ailerons)

My wing has 4 servos. I am not particularly interested in having a "crow " function. I would like to just use the flap switch to control flaps where 1 position is up, 1 position is down, and the 3rd position combines them with the ailerons. Basically have the outer section work as a aileron all the time and the inner section work as either a normal flap or aileron.

I assume that this can be done, I'm just getting confused when I start messing with the program mixing screen. Any help and info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

To achieve full length ailerons, mix ailerons with flaps. I haven't done it but since DX7 has 6(?) free mix, it should have no difficulty.

However, if you were to use DX7 for 4 servo wing glider, you chose a wrong radio.
DX7 does not have a dedicated program for glider. I made the same mistake. I didn't know it before I bought it. It is incovenient to use DX7 for a full house glider.

Yes I know that it can do it,but that is the problem. I am not sure how to setup the program mixes. Can someone post what steps I need to take to accomplish this.

Thanks
