New to the hobby and just just got a 600le.
I intend to use a governer and a glow igniter,how many chan rx do i need for that?
Using a jr9503 tx,what do i assign gyro and gov to in the radio?
Can i still use gyro menu for gyro and gov menu for gov OR does gear need to bo assigned to a particular item.
A list of options would be good,stratching my head here at the moment.

On standard heli setup you would need six channels
Your basic
cyclic left/right = 1
cyclic forward/aft = 2
Throttle = 3
Tail/Rudder = 4
Gyro gain = 5
Pitch = 6

Auxilary channels is for addition stuff like
govenors
tx operated items that needs an aditional channel.

So to answer your question 7ch rx should be fine.

Gyro would have its gain control plugged into RX channel 7 (Aux 2). You'll then have to use the GYRO SENSE menu to control gain and mode of the gyro. Select "AUTO", the GYRO gain will be controlled by the setting of the flight mode switch. (Your other option is RUDD D/R, in which case the gyro gain is controlled by the position of the RUDDER Dual Rate switch). If you choose the AUTO position, there will be selections at the far right side of the display that let you select if position 0, 1, or 2 of the flight mode switch will control the gyro gain, and that number is selected with the values displayed in the center of the screen in the GYRO SENSE menu.

Governor control plugs into channel 5. Go into the device select menu and change the GEAR setting from "INH" or "ACT" to "GOV". You'll now have a GOVERNOR option in the list of functions when you look at the screen that allows you to control the various TX settings for that model. Governor setting is then controlled by the position of the Flight Mode Switch, based on the settings you choose in the GOVERNOR menu.

7-channel RX MINIMUM required. As for where you connect your glow driver, if its controlled by the transmitter, you may have to get creative, or use at least an 8-channel receiver. But ask around about controlling the glow-driver, if it's an on-board, radio-operated item.

Depends on your glow driver.
I use Gear set of governor on my birds with switch glow pro and run a Y cable for governor vain and switch glo. I set a positive governor value in normal, idle1 and idle2. I set a negative 75 on hold. When I flip to hold my glow ignitor lights.

Depending on governor and glow driver this trick may work. The only corner case I found is using an Align governor and an old non pro switch glo. They both want positive servo travel values to work. In that case I needed to flip into hold and back out to light the driver.

The question asked required a lot more verbage than "7".
