Default Hitec Eclipse7 dual flap setup

I am trying to figure out how to set up my flaps on my Spitfire. I would like to put one flap side on channel 6 and the other on channel 7. This way I wont have to use a servo reverser on one of the flaps. I believe I will have to set the master to 6 and slave 7. Is this right? How would you do that?

With dual servo for flaps, best to operate from one channel. This is easily done by:
1. Both servo arms pointing in same direction to or from centreline of fuse, in need move one flap horn
slightly sideways to acommodate straight linkage.
2. Use one servo that rotates in opposite direction e.g. with Hitec, JR or Sanwa(aka Airtronics) use an equivalent Fuata or clone thereof.
3. Mechanically reverse one servo:

Otherwise refer:

especially, the attached .pdf "Ultrastick_ programe".
