Default walkera 36 - servo motor rx connections help!

my walkera dragonfly 36 came unassembled. i have it pretty much together but i don't know which servo-motor plugs into which port in the rx. I know the "rudder" is the rear rotor servo, which plugs into the gyro which plugs into the rx.

but the other three... ???

if someone could explain it to me, i would so thankful!

Thanks everyone!

All I can say is, unplug the motor and start experimenting!

I do however think the channels go like so:
1: forward/backward
2: left/right
3: throttle (empty unless you have BL setup)
4: tail servo (gyro)
5: gyro sensitivity (empty unless you've got an expensive gyro)
6: pitch servo

you guys rock. but i have to admit i am a little more stupid than you think i am. when you say "left/right" and "front/back" you are talking about the two servos mounted in the "nose" of the heli, yes? if i am facing the heli head on is the "front/back" servo the one mounted on the right?

is the "pitch" servo the one that mounts pretty much under the main rotor?

thanks for helping such a newbie. i have already read close to a hundred pages in these forums, which has allowed me to get as far as I have.

Thanks again!

you're welcome, always glad to help!

ok, pitch is the one sitting at the bottom of the frame (under the main shaft)

Left/right servo will be on the right side (if you're looking at the head of the heli, tail facing away from you)
forward and backward is on the left, tail on the rear (duh)

and that's about it! hope that helps and happy flying! (please check out the "setting walkera 36 up fresh out of box" thread!)

the "setting up out of the box" thread - i totally have it printed out, as well as the whole 36 "manual" from ehirobo.com.

i have been reading a lot of posts here, including lots from you folks actually. that's how i figured out how to put the thing together in the first place!

thanks again you guys.
