JR xg14 flap programming question

I am trying to set up aileron and elevator trims for each flap position and cannot figure out how.
For example I need just a touch of left aileron and down elevator when deploying the flaps to half and just a touch more when going to full flap
I thought a custom mix would do it but I can only get it to work on position 2 of the flap switch. I am using a 3 position switch to actuate the flaps
Position 0 up 1 half 2 full
Ideas?
Thanks all!

If you activated the Flap System when you set up the model, the ability to trim aileron and elevator is part of the initial flap settings. You have to go to Flap System in the Function List and tweak the settings there. Take a look at the attached page from the manual.

Until one is familiar with the Trim-In feature, the safest way to add aileron and elevator trims to the FLAP SYS is to inhibit Trim-In under each axis and by trial and error guess at what the settings should be. Trim-In is somewhat a misnomer. It has nothing to do with the normal trim system. When it is activated, the designated trim lever is disconnected from the normal trim system and is used to adjust the setting in the FLAP SYS menu. This way the setting can be adjusted in flight. With the Trim-In active, the lever will have two to five times more range than when it was used for ordinary trim.

Trim-In is a handy feature that I would to have seen on more menus but it can cause big problems if one doesn’t know what they’re doing.
