I just received my 3GX this morning. I am setting it up now. I am using a Align 1900mAH battery to my Align RCE-BSX bec to the 3GX. Do I use the 5.1 Volt regulator step-down unit that came with the bec plugged in the 3GX?

Thanks guys for your input in advance!

The stepdown is usually for the tail servo,use it between the tail servo and rudder channel.

Step down
I have been using it on my 600 pro, tail servo. Plugged right into the 3gx. No problems to report.

Thanks guys! Also, I noticed the word "PIT" on the system. What does this mean?

"Pit"
If you're referring to the top of the unit, printed in white, it is where you will plug in your pitch servo. That is the only place it appears on mine.

Got it. I realized that RIGHT AFTER I sent this post.
All my Spektrum receivers say AUX, so that is what I was looking for. Thanks!

No 3gx is rated up to a 2s. you can run a straight 2s into it but depending on your tail is where the stepdown comes into play.

I am using the gov. on my CC esc. Is the 3GX usb for setting up the gov mode. Watching the CD system program, it looks as though I can set up the cyclics and tail without the usb.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
