This is for the Futaba 8FG but the radios are nearly identical. I use this guide for my 14SG.

If you want an On/Off or Max/Med/Off operation in a switch try "Trim Mix"

Are you looking for elevator compensation when using the flaps, or having the flaps move in response to elevator (aka, snap flaps)?

For snap flaps, you'll use the ELE to CAMBER mix, which allows you to drop or raise both the flaps and ailerons when the elevator is moved.

For elevator compensation when the flaps are moved, there's a bunch of different settings that allow that. As joao says, you can use the Trim Mix, which allows you to set up camber settings of the ailerons and flaps, and the elevator comp on a switch. You can also use the Camber Mix, which allows you to do pretty much the same thing as the Trim Mix, only with a proportional control (for example the slider). And the Butterfly/crow braking mix also allows you to set elevator compensation to go along with it.
