I may have received a faulty unit, just setting it up, everything is plugged in and I cant get it to power up at all! I did notice that the sensor wires from the box to the gyro seem to be the opposite of all the other pics I am seeing here. My yellow wire is on the opposite side of everyone else's both going into the gyro and the box. would this be the cause? Any ideas?

I just swapped the polarities around on both ends of the cable, it appears that mine came backwards! Anyways I tried to power it up again but no lights no anything. Im guessing its dead. Great

Your servos were damaged by plugging them in backwards?

You cant fry a servo by having it backwards. They put the power wire on the center pin. All you will do is reverse neg and signal which wont hurt a thing. Just doesnt work.

I have it working now, just have to set up the tail gyro. The signal cables I received had the polarities backwards, once I pulled them out of the plugs and turned them around the unit worked.
