Anyone running this combination?
If so, did you have to swap the wires is the sensor connector as well as separate the signal wire from the connector and plug into a separate Rx port on the mini v?

Please Let me know how you wired the gov

Thanks men,

I bought it as a kit, it ended up a kit!

You may not need the resistors if you're control voltage is at or less than 5v.

Power for the sensor is the top pin (-black) and middle pin (+red) of RXB or RXC. Sensor signal is the top pin of RXA.

Ok great thanks.
Now, in the vbar gov screen what channel does " rxa" equate to? To tell it where to look. They do not offer rx a b or c. Just channel numbers.

Thank You

First don't worry about the voltage... the link he posted is not for the spektrum backplate sensor. The spektrum sensor is good to 8.4 volts or a two cell lipo.

RXA is not a single channel. It is a port used to plug in a three way plug from an external receiver to the mini-v.

Right!
Jay has e single signal lead in a.
The power and ground in b
Throttle servo in c

Ed the software does not coincide with the mr Mel videos. The tabs in the software don't match the tutorials. I've done a million govs
Vbar is absolutely horrible when it comes to instructional.
We may have to bring it to the field to compare with your settings.

I think the concern is not for the sensor but the RXA port which should not have a pulse greater than 5v on it. I don't know what the backplate does but for many sensors the level of the pulse is equal to the sensor supply voltage.

I have the sensor figured out. It just the rest of it. I'm trying to set " combined" mode, but it seems like I have to use expert gov mode....
It seems the software I'm using (5.3) does not match exactly what the videos show or vstabi's site shows.
Very frustrating!

Mr Mel does not do a nitro gov, combined mode video for the mini.

Last I checked, Mikado does not support using the mini on a Nitro so that's why you don't see anything.

Hmmm, I've been trying to get that question answered for 3 days and I'm starting to think your right.

Thanks man
