    Retracts Y together to the 5th (gear) channel Flaps connect to 3 way Y to channel 6 (aux1)
    Assumes not using an advanced radio and not doing the common "flaperon" mixing for ailerons.
    This is why there should be 2 standard 2 lead Y harnesses and a 3 way Y in the box.

    If you are using a Spekrum radio you might have to find the flap system part of the menu and enable it. It is off by default (when you clear a model memory) in my DX-18.

    With an advanced radio you can put each control surface on its own channel and might have enough to put each retract on its own channel for separate delays.

      wiring is super easy so I'm guessing you are having problems programming your radio?

      For wiring flaps, simply take both flap servos and plug them into a Y connector which looks like this: Plug the single end of the Y into chanel 6 on your receiver.
      For wiring retracts, simply take the 3 retract servos and plug all 3 into the 3 way harness. This looks like the Y harness above but has 3 connector on one side (for all 3 retracts) and one connector on the other (which connects to your receiver channel 5)

      That is all there is to the wiring.
