Thanks, I did not know that. I'll have to look and see which one is the center wire.
I'd rather mount it horizontal with the red wires going along the frame or the cable running down the frame and the red wires going out to the arms.

Just a thought , received my order yesterday, and must say.

That's some quality product, made in the USA with USA support as well.

But I did notice something though, I didn't receive the extension cable with my order. Its okay since I got some extras.

Maybe leave the extension select out of the purchase or something.

I'll stop ranting now and fly. Thanks guys.

Some Futaba's only put out 8 channels in PPM mode...a radio restriction. I'm not sure if your 8FG falls into that catagory though...I don't use fooltaba.

What cable did you not receive ??? We have everything in stock, so I cant immagine we missed anything. If we did miss anything, we would send one right away. My guess is:

If you are talking about the RX antenna, the extension is part of the antenna itself, not a seperate cable.

The fix for this is very each though Just get a peice of wire, and solder it on to the cut wire, and then cut it to the exact length 164 MM. The wire can even be a little different, it does not have to be the exact type of wire I used, it will work and perform like new as long as you get the length perfect

Mike
And that's the total length - for instance - on the center part - I measure from where the wire leaves the insulation correct?

From where the center wire leaves the coax shield to be exact. Once the wire exits the shielding it is now 'active'.

Okay, I stand corrected.

I'll keep my mouth shut until further notice

Hey Mike,

Bruce from RC Model Reviews mentiones in this video he may get a DL system for review but hasn't heard anything? He is going to install the RCMlink UHF thing in his new Penguin. Get him a system man!

Can Dragon Link be used for single servo wire hookup to my NAZA on my quad.

Can Dragon Link be used for single servo wire hookup to my NAZA on my quad.

I only found a few posts on the internet from people who had connected the Dragon Link to the NAZA on their quads and one said it went into fail safe every few seconds and another said it only works with Futaba.
I have a DX8 and just curious as I'm installing my new Dragon Link and 1.3 system tonight and wondering if there's a way to use less wires.

And on the Dragon Link receiver channels 1,2,3,4 are A,E,T,R correct?
