tail and main ESCs should be wired in parallel to the battery (red on both to battery red, black on both to battery black). Main esc hooks to ch3 on the RX and to the motor. Tail ESC hooks to gyro and motor. Gyro hooks to CH4 on the RX.

You'll have to arm the tail by holding the stick all the way to the left. If you have trouble arming the tail, play with the gyro adjustments and / or TX trim a bit.

Confused by the channel thing. I have a jr 610 6channel receiver. I seem to be able to get the tail to work intermittently, but when I hover the heli it's very unstable even w/ 60% expo on elev. and ail. Whatcha think?

I probably have an incorrect setup on the radio or something. When I get it to hover it becomes so sensitive to stick input it goes out of control. I have plenty of experience w/ heli's and can invert hover inches off the ground, so if I can't even hover this thing there has got to something going on.

The tail is a diff issue and may have some loose connection that im not able to find yet. It's like it won't initialize for a couple of minutes and then all the sudden it works (weird).
