Are you using dual elevator servos? And have you checked the Futaba website?

Two servos for ailerons, two servos for elevators.

If i use 1 and 6 for ailerons what type of mix or program do i use to get them to work properly?

I use them as flaperons now but now im not able to get the aileron differential going. Shoud i use a differnt channel?

Aileron Differential function on this radio is for when you want two channels for ailerons, plus a separate flap channel. You are doing the correct thing by using Flaperons in channels 1 and 6. To get aileron differential, you need to adjust the endpoints of channels 1 and 6.

For elevators, if you have an 8 channel receiver, use the Ailevator function and plug your servos into channels 2 and 8. If you only have a 7 channel receiver, you can do a elevator-gear (channel 5) mix and turn LINK and TRIM on, and set the mix value at 100% in both directions. Make sure that if you use an elevator-gear mix, to go to the aux channel page and select NULL for the gear switch. Hope this helps.

I am glad the site has been of some assistance.
Remember with the 9C you can increase the end point on the weak side or decrease the end points on the strong side if your throws are not balanced. This transmitter has great functionality.
