Once all the soldering has been taken care of, it’s pretty much a case of running all the wires making sure they can reach and connecting them all together. I followed the diagrams shown below. I don’t take any credit for the diagrams. I found them by searching through the rcgroups.com forums and in particular this thread here.
Channel 1: Gyro #1 input.
Channel 2: Gyro #2 input.
Channel 3: Gyro #1, 2 & 3 sensitivity input connectors.
Channel 4: Yaw Gyro #4 input.
Channel 5: Yaw Gyro #4 sensitivity input connector.
Channel 6: Gyro #3 input.
Channel 7: BEC input.
Channel 8: LED light strip switch.
The photos below show the wiring before I tidied it up and also swapped the Futaba R617FS 7 channel 2.4Ghz receiver for an OrangeRx Futaba FASST Compatible 8Ch 2.4Ghz Receiver from HobbyKing. I needed the extra channel to make the LED strip switch on and off from the transmitter. Next I’ll go through the programming I used for my Futaba 10C radio. This is my first “Heli” setup so I’d be surprised if I get it right first time.
