No, it outputs a signal and it will move a servo but won't work properly as it does't output PPM. Tried mine, failed, got a cheap 7c.

I opened my 7c and spliced a servo socket onto the ppm, + and - that go to the TX board then removed the crystal., works a treat.

Would live to know how, I just need one more channel so using my 8FG would make life so much easier.

It does kinda work, the servos move pretty much how they should and you can stop it transmitting on 2.4 by holding the middle of the circle on power up - but the servos don't move to their full extents and sort of drift - if you look at the spec it does not do PPM.

Not correct.

T8FG has PPM output at the trainer port.

So no problem to attach the Dragon Link.
