How do you wire the servos and connecting wires when using a 3gx and a spectrum 7610 receiver? Do the servos plug into the 3gx or the receiver? Do you use one, two or no satellites with this setup? Thank you

the 3gx software will tell you how to hook it up the easiest way is to plug 2 sats into the 3GX and then bind to your radio this will only work if you are using a 7ch TX or more. What heli are you installing it on.

I just don't know about that boy.

Try this for starters...

More to come tomorrow.

Using an external standard RX such as the 7610, any satellite receivers plug into that receiver, not into the 3GX.

Servos always connect to the 3GX as it is what will be controlling then.

The choice for receivers with the 3GX is satellites (1 or 2) directly plugged into the unit OR a separate standard receiver connected using the supplied cables. If that receiver needs satellites, they plug into the receiver, NOT the 3GX unit.

-----

Servos are plugged into the 3GX unit in the order labeled. The receiver supplies the position information, the 3GX uses that in conjunction with its gyro guts to actually drive the servos. Therefore the servos have to plug into the 3GX (as with any gyro).

-----

If you choose to use ONLY satellite receivers, they plug directly into the 3GX unit.

-----

Using a separate standard receiver plugged in using the supplied cables AND satellites plugged into the 3GX is NOT a valid configuration.

-----

Using a separate external standard receiver, bind the receiver to your transmitter as you normally would, binding plug inserted into the receiver, NOT the 3GX lower right horizontal connector. Don't forget to set the throttle stick to your desired failsafe setting when binding the external receiver.

-----

When plugging servos in, the signal wire goes UP, ground wire goes closest to bottom of the unit. With the two horizontal connectors, ground is on the left. The lower right hand horizontal connector would be used to supply power TO your receiver by the red/black wires in the cable. The third wire, white, would be the Governor channel output of your receiver. If you're not using the Governor, this third wire isn't needed.

-----

Power is plugged into the 3GX unit -- typically supplied by the ESC plugged into the THROTTLE channel of the 3GX unit or through the lower left horizontal connector. Again, the left wire is ground and the center is power.

-----

If you are using ONLY satellite receivers, and if you are using more than a seven channel transmitter, the third pin on the lower-right hand connector becomes channel 8 (aux 3) output, controlled by your transmitter for whatever purpose you wish.

-----

Be sure to provide the 3GX with adequate power -- voltage AND current capability for trouble-free performance.
