How do you set up for "crow/spoilers/reflex"

I have a simple sailplane; Throtle, Ele, Rud and Ailerons. I am using a DX7 and a 6 channel RX. I want to know how to raise both ailerons using them as a spoiler/crow/reflex on approach controlling the yaw with the rudder. I don't want to set up flaps or build spoilers in the wing.
Any help would be appreciated very much.

Use the mixes, easy to do and use the trims up on the top center to control them...

Hi Bob
I have a DX6i, not a DX7, but I imagine the setup will be similar. I assume that you have two servos for the ailerons, and that they are each plugged into the receiver, one to the aileron channel and one to the aux channel. This can’t be done if the servos are fed through a Y plug. You then activate the flap control so you can use the flap switch to move both ailerons in the same direction. Use whatever setting you need to get them both up when you put the flap switch down. You should still have aileron control for roll even with the ailerons up, it just gives you a new neutral position. You will also want to experiment with mixing in some elevator with the spoilerons. I hope this helps.
