Default Smoke servo ???

How do I set up my smoke servo to operate only at certain throttle settings and have a separate switch to turn it on or off?
I am running a Futaba 9c with a 149pcm receiver:
1-R. ailer
5-L. ailer
8- elev

I have the servo for the smoke valve hooked up to channel 6 but it moves with the ailerons and I can't seem to figure out how to make it work.

I know that ch 9 is on or off and only reversible.

How are you guy's doing this???

Thanks for any info.

Get the manual out and read it over. You need to know how to program things and what turns them on and off.
If channel six moves with the ailerons one of the built in mixes is on (like flaperon) or one of the manual mixes is activated. There is a way to reset the programming and make sure everything is off so you can start over but you are going to have to know what you want to do then. If you cannot figure out how to do it find someone that has one and ask him. Asking someone on the internet will only compound the problem.
