Use a spare channel for the nose wheel servo and two p-mixes from the elevator channels.



The two p-mixes would have opposite polarities so the elevator inputs cancel since both elevators would be moving in the same direction. The rudder input would add up since the elevators move in opposite directions.



You could rig up a mechanical thing to do something similar instead.

I don't know the quasar radio well, but with the Futaba radios you can simply do a mix from rudder to the nose gear servo with link "off" so that the elevator-to-rudder servo mix does not command the nose gear servo.

For detailed steps, see the Futaba FAQ for the 8U.
