Default twin throttle servo question

Have a Futaba 9c radio and trying to figure out how to set up with dual servos on the throttles of a twin engine plane. Can't find anything in the manual that I can get a handle on. I'm also going to try to slave the steering servo to the rudder servo with ailerons on seperate channels. Am using a rcd seven channel rx. Any help with the procedures would sure be appreciated.

Why not use a Y-harness for the 2 throttle servos and make sure the linkages are the same length?

just mix aux1 (chan 7) to the throttle. make sure to select link and trim options. what you can also do at this point is mix your vr-d to your left throttle and vr-e to the right, giving you a certain percentage of individual control also.
