I just ordered a switchglo and i expect im going to have some confusion with setup. can you guys help me ? my setup is as follows.

Dx7
AR7000
ATG Gov
Logictech 6100 gyro.
and the switchglo.

Are there any guys out there with a similar setup that can shed some light on this for me?

Well, I don't use the DX7 Tx, as I'm using a 9303, but I'm assuming that the program mixes are similar.

I use my switchglo with a very simple setup. I simply use an Aux channel that I link to my Gear switch. I do a Gear -> Aux ? program mix so that when the gear switch is up, there is no signal and when switched on, it gives a 100% signal. This is the easiest way to set up a Switchglo. It allows me to simply flip my Gear switch and it turns it on... switch it off and it goes off. Simple.

There are other ways to set it up for a low throttle limit, etc. to avoid hot starts and the such. I'm sure there are alot of guys that will respond that use it like that as well. They'll be able to inform you of their setups.

If you have a spare channel plug it in to it and use a switch or use a y adaptor and plug it into your throttle and set the rev switch on your switchglo to turn on at low stick. I put mine on a spare channel so when I land almost empty I can turn it on and burn the last of the fuel out. Also they more ways to do it on thier web site.

Well I got it mounted. Thanks for the input. Wasnt as hard as i thought it would be. ended up y harnessing the gain channel. the hardest part was figuring how to setup the TX. I have my gov running thru mixes 1 and 3 then I had a kill switch mixed on on mix 2 . put gear on aux 2 .looks like it will work nice.

Thanks for the help guys.
