I have the Hummingbird V3 with the stock Mixer/Gyro and 6 ch rcvr.

My radio is the Hitec 7 Eclipse.

The bird only uses the first 4 channels. 5 and 6 are aux according to the book. How do I set up my radio so I can use a landing gear for channel 6 and a super bright LED (as a spotlight) for ch 5? Eventually, I would like to make a Coast Gaurd Dauphin Heli with retracts and a spotlight.

This channel thing is messing with my head because the manual makes it seem like you can only have a Gyro on ch 5. But my Gyro is integrated into ch3 (throttle) with the mixer. Can I change it?

Currently the rcvr is:

Ch1 is Aileron (left/right)
Ch2 is Elevator (front/back)
Ch3 is Throttle (goes to mixer board with integrated Gyro)
Ch4 is Rudder (tail rotor)
Ch5 Not used (aux 1)
Ch6 Not used (aux 2)


Radio instruction manual says in Heli mode:

Ch1 is Aileron (left/right)
Ch2 is Elevator (front/back)
Ch3 is Throttle (goes to mixer board with integrated Gyro)
Ch4 is Rudder (tail rotor)
Ch5 Gyro
Ch6 Aux. or heading hold control

Thanks.
