Well, since my Futaba 9CAP has the ratcheting stick on the left I will be using that one for my turret leaving the right stick for driving.

As far as programming certain functions on the sticks, I haven't messed with them.  Channels 1&2 are on the right stick with Channels 3&4 on the left stick.  I assigned switch F to channel 5 since F is a momentary on switch for triggering the marker.  If you hold the mode/page button down for a few seconds it will bring up the menu.  Using the wheel on the right side next to the LCD, turn it until it highlights the Aux-ch and press the wheel to select it.  In this next menu you just turn the wheel to assign a different switch to each channel using the arrow buttons to scroll up and down.  Like I said though, I haven't re-assigned any of the stick movement and don't see how you can re-assign them.  If you want to use the left stick for turret as I did, you simply plug into channels 3&4 (3 is elevation and 4 is traverse).

How does everyone else have their radios set up? Do you have the vehicle movement controls on the left and turret functions on the right?

Just wondering since I have a Futaba 6 chnl with push buttons on the right and hope to be able to make it work for the turret functions.
