    Why do you need to do this? I run planes and cars and it's just no the same. Buy a cheap car remote control off ebay or HK and be fine. My 5 cents.

    I am using a AR7000, I want to do the throttle on elevator and steering on rudder, but there are two servos so I need help on mixing the controller to turn them both. And for the High and Low gear I want it to be on AUX2 or on the gear channel, or even if I can get it on the throttle hold/rudder D/R. Then for the t-lock I want it to be somehow on the flight mode switch, but I need help on mixing the radio
    Thank you.

    The only problem is when I mixed the sterring together, the master channel will move both servos but the slave channel on aileron moves only one servo as it is a slave. To fix this all you need is a y-connector for the servos and put it on the rudder channel.

    I have put the receiver and the satellite inside the waterproof casing now. This is a beast now you can now lock the rear diffs. and front diff. separately or together.

    You can also do dual rates on the aileron channel as I have. you set AILE D/R 1 to zero and AILE D/R 2 to zero so no matter what position the dual rate switch is on you can have no input on the aileron channel.
