Default How do you do it?

How do you hook up retracts for the main gear and the nose wheel? Do you make a Y-Harness using 3 leads instead of 2? Not sure I have enough soldering skills to make a 3 lead harness.

Its a good time to start soldering and a simple three way Y cord is very easy to do. You can avoid soldering and can do it by using 'two' two way Y cords but you will end up with an extra lead to stuff into the airplane.

Can you use an open slot on the Rx and mix that channel with the retract channel? Sort of like 2 aileron servos?
