Default Inside F5J

I plan to build an Inside F5J (6-wing servo electric sailplane) just for fun flying, but I have some dilemmas.
I have a DX6 transmitter and I would like to use it to control this plane. I plan to control flaps together, and maybe I would use only the outer ailerons. Will it work?
Or, is it better if I would move the outer and inner ailerons together (same amount of travel)?

Would it be possible to couple the two outer control surfaces on one wing half in to the same receiver channel (aileron) and make the mechanical geared movement/travel so that you get max deflection on the outer aileron and something like 2/3 of that on the inner aileron?

I have and have flown the Inside and Introduction. Unless you upgrade your radio to something with more channels I would go with the Introduction. You will be much happier. IMO....the Introduction actually thermals a little better than the Inside and is the most maneuverable REF aircraft I have flown.
Mark.
p.s. in the future if you get a more suitable radio, there is a wing kit to convert the Introduction to an Inside.
