Here is a little reading for you:
https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...%20assignments

How much knowledge do you have about programming a CCPM helicopter on a JR radio? Why do you even need the mapping of a Futaba receiver, when you should be tracing the servo wires to help you in the CCPM programming of the helicopter into the new radio?

Here is a diagram that should help you out. After you connect the servos in the correct places, then you need to worry about programming. There are a few websites for that. Ask again if you need more in-depth explanation.



Forget about the "front" arrow. Some helicopters have two servos up front and some helicopters have two servos out back. The line should be marking the frame/tailboom orientation.

Got the graphic from here:
http://www.rchelicopterfun.com/ccpm.html
Some interesting information there for the inexperienced.

Russ:

I'm going to be blunt and to the point. I've been called many names before when I've done this, so wear your thick skin. You have been warned...........


wow thanks i was about to pack the heli up for a long storage just because i got no info


You might need not only to pack it up, but maybe even get rid of it. You have been provided with plenty of information to figure out what you need, but it seems you are unwilling to read other websites. To include links to manufacturer's information.

Follow the link provided on the post immediately below your first question. It takes you to a plethora of information about Futaba channel assignments. Then the second link I provided takes you to another website that breaks down the information to re-program your JR radio to do what you want it to do.

Seems like you are a real novice at this. Be EXTREMELY careful with RC helicopters. I've got some scars to prove how dangerous they can be. In the 20+ years that I've been involved with RC, I've seen my fair share of accidents / injuries only topped by my time in the US ARMY. Just like it says in the instruction manual that you should have searched for from day one.....

THIS IS NOT A TOY AND IS CAPABLE OF INFLICTING INJURY TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS. iT IS ALSO CAPABLE OF CAUSING DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.

I extreme cases, people have lost their lives due to RC injuries. PLEASE GET EXPERIENCED LOCAL HELP.
