There's no way to hook up a Switchglo Pro on a 3GX but I was messing around and found a happy little accident.

If you Y the SGP into the throttle channel,the SGP lights the plug when you plug in the battery.

If the tone stops before you get a chance to start it,just push the throttle to 100% and back to 0% and it re-lights.

It also lights the plug at low throttle and idle but won't light the plug with throttle applied.

It works.lol...

I literally never use the word literally right.

I set mine to 60 seconds.
I like that it lights the plug at an idle.

12 seconds would work too and be less noisy.lol...

If you have a Hitec or otherwise backwards running throttle servo...you need to reverse the SGP as well as the servo.

just a heads up, you can actually run a Y cable inline with your gov sensor. I have mine running this way and its great! As soon as I start to crank the motor over the SGP turns on

Good catch, but all I can see in my mind when I read the title is an Asian "massage parlor" where for an extra $50 bucks you can get "happy ending".

lol...Happy ending

The 3GX is doing pretty good on my nitro but has a bit of a backwards drift that gets worse the longer it flies.

I can deal with it ok.

Backward drift, crappy tail and bobble nothing but problems with my 3GX, got rid of it as 3GX had many issues I never dealt with on my vbars. Thought I would save some money and try something new all to deal with this so back to vbar. Is Align ever going to get it right? Sorry thought I'd save money didn't work out that way and I am frustrated
