3 pos. switch and more independent servos/channels

Hello,
My new aircraft carrier based plane has foldable wing ends, moving canopy and pivoting Arrest Hook ( ref: Corsair and Tigercat ).

I managed to create the following setup for the 3 pos. switch:

From neutral position down gives moderately fast canopy opening and slow folding of the wing ends. From down to neutral closes the canopy before the wing ends unfold.

Then, I fly the plane and, as preparation for the aircraft landing, I move the switch from neutral position up. This opens the Arrest Hook.

During taxiing after landing I close the Hook, open the canopy and fold the wings ends.

I have not found yet any way to have wing ends, canopy and Hook movements completely independent from each other.

Perhaps it is not possible using the RF 5.5 Editor and Interlink Elite?
Perhaps somebody knows how to do it?
Matt

I would think you could edit the software radio or servp inputs with "conditional" setting
like gear and throttle back = hook down
or gear down 1/2 flap or lower hook down .or switch only active at min/ max rpm range etc

not saying I know the best combo but think you could figure that out
