I will be using 2 independent control systems in the model. I will probably use 2 of the JR NER-649R, 9 channel PCM receivers. Whilst these are expensive they have very higher noise rejection and a built in fail-safe. The allocation of controls will, most probably, be as follows:

RX channel RX 1 RX 2 Servos and Comments
1 Left ESC Right ESC Type to be decided
2 Aileron Aileron 2 Hitec HS-605BB
3 Elevator Elevator 2 Hitec HS-545BB
4 Rudder Tailwheel steering Hitec HS-700BB and CSM ICG360 gyro  / Hitec HS-605BB
5 Undercarriage retract Landing lights Hitec HS-75BB
6 Inner Flaps Outer Flaps 2 Hitec HS-615MG / 2 Hitec HS-605BB
7 Bomb doors   This will use an automatic electrical jack operated by a relay.
8 Sound generator   To simulated cannon fire
9 Bomb/torpedo release ?    

The designing of this model will be progressing slowly as I will be moving house in the near future. I have decided, for the moment, to build a smaller 71" span (approx. 1/9th scale) model as a temporary measure.
