e-flight P-51D Mustang with Safe receive, flaps and retracts.

E-flite P-51D Dallas Doll with SAFE receiver with retracts and flaps using a servo reversing Y cable (0 min 12 sec)

DX9 setup
Aircraft Type = Wing: Normal, Tail: Normal
Channel Input Config = Aux2: E
Digital Switch Setup = Switch E, Pos 0: 100%, Pos 1: 34%, Pos 2: -25%
Servo Setup Reverse = Aux2: R
Servo Setup Speed = Aux2: 2.0, 2.0

How I came up with these numbers was to disconnect the gear and setup just the flaps on Aux2 per the manual, then I measured the throw distance, once I knew the recommended travel, I adjusted the Digital Switch Setup until I obtained the same travel distance.
My gear will only open or close if it senses a + or - 100% setting, it will not deploy 1/2 way. However to be safe, once I had it configured the way I needed it I flew several test flights with the gear locked down to see how the plan reacted to the different flap settings both take off and landing. I have had no issue with my P-51D landing with full flaps or taking off with 1/2 flaps.
