Hi, I am an experienced power flyer and have been given a 'Multiplex Heron' as a gift.
My intention is to set it up with flaps so that I can set up 'crow' ,camber, reflex etc , I will be using a 'Lemon' 10 channel RX and I have realized I do not know what goes where when plugging in separate ailerons and separate flaps. (I would like to use separate flaps so that in certain flight modes I can combine them to achieve full wing length ailerons)
Any help and advice would be much appreciated!

"What goes where" depends on what channels the Tx is sending the various conttrol signals on, which will depemd on the Tx brand and/or personal preference.
What Tx are you using? Once we know that, someone with the same brand/model will jump in with advice.

A Lemon receiver implies that you are using a Spektrum transmitter. If so, set the wing type to two ailerons & two flaps and then go into the monitor screen to see where it has put things.

Although you're an experienced power flyer you might want to think what control you put the crow braking on, on my electric gliders (inc a Heron) I put the crow braking on the throttle stick, throttle back = full crow, with power on a slider. This way you can easily modulate the crow braking on landing.
BTW the Multiplex set up in the manual is pretty spot on.

On my Dx9 I have the following set-up:
5GEAR: R Flap
I then use 3 Flight modes as stated in my letter published in the May 2018 RCM&E:
"...... in the March issue states that 'Regular gliderist will, most likely, allocate the motor to a switch at the Tx and use the main throttle stick for crow braking.......you may prefer to have the motor on the usual throttle stick and flaps on a slider.' Well there is a third way.

Thanks everybody for the replies, ...yes am using a Sektrum DX9.
I think that I would prefer crow on the throttle stick so I will use the suggestions of John Lee
Also I think all replies are valid and have helped me think this through, thanks once again to everybody for replying!
