Default Flash 5 w/2 elevator servos!

I have a U-Can-DO with 2 elevator servos and am having a hard time figuring out out to get the TX to move the servo's in both the same direction.
Any help would be appreciated.
It's a flash 5 radio

Thanks
Keith

Don't know what a U-CAN-Do looks like but do you mean two Aileron servos ?
I don't think the Flash 5 can do a split elevator, other than to use a Y-cable from Ch2 to both servos.

I have used a y-harness to both elevator servos on ch2 but one moves up and the other moves down. Anyway to get them to move both in the same direction?

thanks

A wye harness would suffice, albeit you have noted you know have implemented said fix with servos know operating in different directions.

Servo reversing wyes or reverse servos are an option. Is it possible to flip one servo over end to end to obtain the right rotation? This will require one pushrod being shorter than the latter, but does the job.
