Default Radio installation


New here so bare with me. I'm ok at flying but hopeless when it comes to the tech/knowledge/installation stuff. My dad was a legend at this but never passed it on to his dim son. So, can anyone point me in the right direction please.

I need basic installation diagrams for large scale sailplane which will be powered by up and go system. My servo use will be:

2 per wing aileron/1 per wing spoiler/1 per wing flaps/2 for elevator/1 for rudder/1 for gear retract/1 for wheel brake/fan retract.

Throttle control

I would like servo protection/redundancy/backup etc and pref a servo with stablization...yup

diags to include battery installation for rx/servo and motor.

Any help is really appreciated.

I have searched for days on the net but cannot find anything.

As mentioned we need more specific information on your sailplane and radio system you will be using.... I can tell you will need a receiver with lots of channels, even though you can use Y connectors for some of the servos, but if each has its own channel it makes for a more precise initial setup.
