Hey guys I'm runnig an all align setup on my 700 on 8volts I have a spektrum 2 in 2 out regulator,Im also using a multigov pro.
What I would like to know is since I'm using both channels on the regulator for signal and rudder,what would be the easiest way to connect the mixture servo, and does the gyro signal wire need to be regulated?

I'm not too familiar with Spektrum products or the MultiGov Pro however, it is to my knowledge that the signal wire in any system DOES NOT have to be regulated.

The gyro gain signal lead does not need to go through the regulator.

Make SURE that your gyro gain wire is JUST the signal wire running to the rX. No power and ground wires there....
You don't need them. Just 1 wire...
Otherwise, if you have a 3 conductor gain lead, you DO need to run it through the regulator because it WILL supply 8v to the gyro and up the bus to 8v.

yea you can't have a pos wire with the signal wire connected to your reciever, to get around this with the spektrum regulator you can either plug both gyro or govener wires in the reciever and put the reculator between the servo/gyro or just pop the hot wire out of the gain plug.
