Default How many channels for flaps?

My dad is looking at building a Telemaster with flaps and will be getting a radio for it. How many channels do you need? Are there any special considerations?

Thanks all!

6 channels will do what you need to do.

Additional FYI...

What Randy says is correct assuming the Telemeaster has SEPERATE flaps and ailerons and not flaperons. Don't know which one you're building.

If you'll be using ailerons as flaps, a six-channel computer radio is necessary for mixing flaps into the ailerons.

Thanks all. I've been doing some studying. Sounds like unless you want to use crow that any six channel is good with a computer radio being better than an analog.
