New Sailplane set ups
Standard tail with Launch, Crow, and the camb/reflex settings on a switch (Pike Perfect)
V-tail with Crow and camb/reflex setting on the slider (Vento)
Note that both these models have the flap servos are centered at about mid flap so they are assigned to the CT digital adjuster to allow them to be at neutral in all condition. This will vary with each model so you may want to disconnect the flap linkage when using this set up to make sure that you don't overdrive the flaps if your neutral position is different.

Also, I'll bet one of the real brains we have on this thread is thinking up a method of programing the throttle lock to a switch as you requested.

I posted some details of how I have flaps and butterfly setup on a full house e-sailplane in another thread here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1330135
The setup is a bit mickey-mouse (tm) as I believe the flap config in the Aurora 9 is not easy to use WRT setting the neutral offset.
Alan (AT) asked me to upload my files in this thread.
I have two files;
1. Omega 2.5 with flaps. This is the Omega 1.8 with the additional centre wing panel including two flaps. I bought this used and so the geometry of the flap servos was set with servo neutral being 45 degrees down. It took me some time to figure out how to get the Aurora 9 to use the flaps as configured. I have flown this model but I have not yet really trimmed it out so no guarantees on this config. Other thing to note is motor on switch F with throttle lock on B. I have moved the spring loaded switch from the right hand side (H) to the left (F) to use for motor and as a launch mode for DLG. There is a quirk in the throttle lock software whereby you have to toggle the lock switch at TX power-up for the lock to engage. I think the radio should detect the position of the lock switch at startup and engage from the get-go. IMHO.
2. Bingo (a.k.a. Pulsar 2.5). This model is a WIP and the program here only really has the flaps and butterfly setup.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Pace F4 and Pace DSH from Leskycomposite
Attached two setups for the Pace f4 (3m) and Pace DSH (2m) slope glider (ailerons/flaps/crosstail)
My way to fly:
- Butterfly on throttle stick (with SWF to switch on/off)
- slight camber changes on Left slider
- Ailerons-to-flap mix with SWG
- Flight conditions SWC (I just use launch/speed)

Cularis setup for V1.08
When updating from V1.07 to V1.08 the cularis program was completely unusable.
It was much easier to start a new program from scratch.
So here it is
5 flight modes controlled by C and E.
Motor controlled by J3 in all Flight modes except Landing.
In landing mode: Motor off, butterfly controlled by J3.
Camber controlled by Lt with adjustment from CT (can be fine tuned separately in every flight mode)

Enigma hotliner A9 setup V1.08 attached
Enigma hotliner: 4 servos wing, T-tail and motor. I replaced the F switch for the Momentary Long Toggle switch (Futaba ML-1FLP Trainer Switch Long:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...3&I=LXCLP5&P=K) to control the motor, momentary for ON and no more than 4 seconds for each climb.
Model Type: Acro, because in Glid I didnīt find the Thr. curve function.
Flight Condition: Normal, Launch, Camber, Reflex, Land(butterfly).
Wing Type: 2AILE + 2FLAP
Tail Type: Normal
Failsafe set: Butterfly
Timer1: Up. Switch F. to check the motor ON time.
Butterfly deployed with switch B.
Left Flap adjustment from LT, right Flap adjustment from CT.
Camber controlled by LS.
Optima 9 rx: redundancy power (Channel 8 and 9). SPC not used it.

F3J/TD Open Class Sailplane setups
My firmware version is 1.08(0)
Mode 2, (default) Aurora 9
Channel 1 right aileron
Channel 2 left aileron
Channel 3 elevator
Channel 4 rudder
Channel 5 right flap
Channel 6 left flap
With the exception of the right & left ailerons being swapped, this is a typical configuration for JR & AT.
CAUTION: PUT YOUR THROTTLE STICK IN THE MIDDLE BEFORE TURNING ON YOUR SAILPLANE!!!!!
These setups are for a 6 channel V-tail sailplane with flap control on the throttle stick, positive camber only on the Left Slider, (“LS”) from center down. Aileron coupled to Flaps, (on/off w/switch, (“G”)) three, (3) flight conditions, (Launch, Normal & Reflex using switch “E”), Elevator compensation for Flaps all flight modes & Aileron to Rudder mixing.
Stratos = Simple, (NO Flight Conditions) that includes the above functions. Reflex is obtained using the Landing menu, Launch using the Launch menu. Flight modes, (Launch & Reflex) are controlled by switch "E" positions 0 & 2 with the use of the Butterfly menu for Flap to Elevator compensation. “LS” adjusted by Camber Mix menu using switch “E” ON in the center position, (Normal). You could add negative camber also.
One rate for Rudder mix & always on. One rate for Aileron to Flap mix, (switch “G” on/off).
Stratos #3 = Flight Conditions, (Launch, Normal & Reflex) on switch “E”. Aileron to Rudder mix rate & Aileron to Flap mix controlled by Flight Condition & “S”. Aileron to Flap mix on/off with switch “G”. Butterfly menu used for Flap to Elevator compensation, (no switch assigned = always on). Camber Mix, (“LS”) controlled by Flight Condition & only needs a value, (for me) in Normal for Flaps & Ailerons. Launch menu used for Launch & Reflex, (switch “E”). Landing menu not used.
A stick/throttle switch would be a big + for turning off the Aileron to Flap mix.
Don’t have a V-tail? Select - System/MDL Type/Tail, (V-tail) & change to Normal
FLAP CONtrol “NOT” used in either sailplane setup. Implementation needs work!
Suggestions, Better Way, Ideas are welcome about firmware 1.08
I would love to hear them in this thread or PM.
