I need help hooking up a second battery pack with it's own switch for mechanical retracts. Anyone provide a diagram?

Get an ordinary Y lead. At the bottom arm of the Y, the bit that plugs into the receiver, cut the red centre wire, either insulate the ends or cut out a section so it can't short together. And that's it. Plug the battery and switch into one of the top arms of the Y and the retract servo into the other top arm of the Y.
