COMMENTS

To install, plug the servo into port 3.
Port 2 can be used for remote gain by connecting it to the
desired channel on the receiver. If not using remote gain,
gyro sensitivity can be adjusted using the limit trim.
Port 1 is used for the servo channel from the receiver when not
using S.BUS input, otherwise it is connected to the S.BUS
network via the receiver or another S.BUS device.
When not using S.BUS, the Elevator/Rudder switch has no effect.
When using S.BUS, the Elevator/Rudder switch determines the channel
this gyro will accept input from. Putting the swich in the
elevator position will set input to channel 2. Putting the
switch to the rudder position will set input to channel 4.

When using with S.BUS, channel assignments for this gyro are fixed:
Elevator: CH 2
Rudder: CH 4
2nd elevator: CH 9
Gyro sensitivity, elevator: CH 7
rudder: CH 8
