As I understand it the TotalG replaces your receiver also, but I am not sure how it works. Do you just plug in satellite receivers to it and bind? Also what kind of power input and how many channels does it have?

yes it requires 2-3 Spektrum sats depending on aircraft size.
Brian recommends 3 on 50/90s

as for channels not sure but every time I saw it looked like it was working like a 7 channel.

it looks like it has 7 channel outputs from the photos but I was wondering if it had more channels for the gain for the gyro's and governor that are built in?

The Total G is compatible with external receivers. With the spektrum version of the Total G you get all the channels, Aileron, Elevator, Rudder, Throttle, Collective plus three gain channels. All of which can be adjusted from the transmitter.
This is a quote from Curtis I got somewhere else.

Thanks for posting that - It looks like the totalG is requiring at least 8 channels. That means a switch glo will take up my 9th channel on the X9303.
What are all the DX7 users going to do?

The Total G only needs 5 channels to fly a helicopter (roll, pitch, collective, yaw & throttle). You can add gyro gain, flight control gain and gov rpm if you want to, but they are not needed.

You can use futaba...you will have to sacrifice one of your 3 gain channels...which can still be adjusted just not from the tx.

The normal power hookup will be through a power plug into the total G. All the servos have a common power bus so you can plug power in any of the plugs including the top programming plugs (this excludes the two plugs on the far left which are for external receivers and do not carry the main power). So you can hook up multiple power inputs if needed.

Was hoping for a failsafe soft switch and a larger power lead in.
A123 in to all 6.6v capable servos and no need for an external mechanical power switch would be the ticket

I am also still wondering how many channels it has, it would seem that you have THR,AIL,ELV,RUD, and COL in addition to three internal gain channels. you said EXT one and two are for external receivers right? So it would seem that there are not any aux channels for things like a sw!tchglo.. is this correct?

I believe the Total-G will 'listen' to 12 channels from the radio - but only has outputs for 8 or 9.
It looks like you have two dedicated accessory connections and one dedicated RPM sensor connection.

so bottom line.. with a x9303 and a TotalG is there enough channels to run a switchglow on its own channel?

I really want my remote glow back.
