Default 7channel radio 2,4 30 cc planes

I am sick.I bought a new wildhare 30cc plane and thought it was great but now I am thinking the 7 channel system is too small for what I was planning.I hate using y harnesses and this plane uses split elevators .sothe elevator and ailerons take 4 of the avilable channels and the the rudder and throtlle take whats left and of course theres a battery.now my nightmare is the opto throttle lill install.I just realized it has to plug into an open channel..am I missing something or did I spend hundreds for nothing.its not like I can go buy a 8 or 10 channel radioo.

what do guys wuth 7 channel radios due to flya 25 percent gas plane.??

If your battery is taking up an open channel like with most of the Futaba 7 channel recievers, run that off a Y harness to the optical kill.

Nothing. The battery can be plugged into any servo port.
