'throttle' stick for camber control?

I have an Eclipse and have it set up for a DLG... two servo wing, flaps and ailerons... All that is fine. But I've seen where people use the throttle stick to control the flaps... 'full throttle' being normal flying position, and 'no throttle' being full flaps. Can't figure out how to accomplish this on the eclipse. Doing it with the flap knob works, but is just annoying.

I think in Glider mode the Eclipse puts crow on the throttle stick. You should be able to set up the crow program for flaps, and then just leave it turned on all the time. This would have the added benefit of automatically including elevator compensation with flaps.

God bless!

Wayne... You were right on the money. I didn't even think about that.

Since I have a two servo wing, I can just set the crow to put them down with the throttle stick. Works great.
