Zero UAV & Spektrum DX 8?

Hello all,

I am setting up my new YS-X6 Autopilot and am trying to plug in the connectors from the YS-X6 controller to the DX 8 receiver and they are not fitting into the receiver.

Anyone know what is going on, are they not compatible?

See my pic.

I think you must have a serializer board to get one output in PPM toward the YS.

The extension cables included with the YS-X6 use Futaba connectors that has an extra plastic tab on the connector, to make it impossible to plug it the wrong way. But the signal pins are identical to other servo connectors, so just take a sharp knife and cut of the plastic tap. Should fit just fine after that.
