Servo connection

After setting the correct update frequency plug in the swashplate servos, but do not install the servo horns yet as the servos could bind and get damaged on first power up!

With electronic swashplate mixing the two aileron servos have to be connected to CH2 (=left) and CH3 (=right). With a mechanical mixed head (H1) the aileron servo connects to CH2 and collective pitch servo to CH3. Plug the the elevator servo into CH1 port. When using a scale helicopter with 90 degrees eCCPM you can connect a second elevator servo to CH7 output on the MICROBEAST PLUS. Note that CH7 only is a signal output, so you must power the servo from elsewhere, i.e. by getting power from the SYS-port or CH5 using a Y-adapter (for + and - only!). Anyhow, with large scale helicopters we recommend to use a separate power distribution unit to which you connect the servos. This will be the better option in regards to robust and fail safe power distribution.
