3 axis wiring?

I received my 3 axis unit yesterday and down loaded the manual. I don't see any reference to "AVR" or "ISP" contacts that are on the unit. What gets wired to them?

nothing, they are for programming the unit we think.

just use the input and output connections, no need for separate power supply if you dont want to it works fine without. mount it on some velcro or soft foam double sided tape to try and minimise some of the vibration it will give jittery servos if you get the vibrations into it.

Nothing, they are there for future development.

I agree with all that you said but I think that this one item might be misleading to some.
The problem is that there is another arrow on the bottom that looks just like that one only a little larger - IT POINTS THE OTHER DIRECTION - DANG.
If you remove the case - real easy to do - there is a white arrow on the printed circuit board, near the sensor, that agrees with the arrow on the TOP of the case, but not with the one on the bottom of the case.

I sent him a message and he told me the price was what it was because he had stock, and HK didn't. GOUGE...Ouch.

Walt - you can mount with the arrow pointed to the front or the back of the plane, it doesn't matter - the axis is the same. That is why there is reverse switches

If that arrogant dude on EBay is monitoring this thread, he ain't gonna like what I'm going to post (and maybe HK as well)!

I ordered a couple of these 8/02. Hobby King had the manufacture direct ship them to me, and I got them 8/14. I did a little Google searching from the address that was on the packaging and I came up with Fiber Optic Products, INC. They're a little higher priced $24.95 then HK, but at least they are available (probably not after this post thou)!

Still no manual available, but from what I've read here, we've figured it out ourselves!

Looks like Fiber Optic Products Inc is a reseller. They are located out of Clearlake Oaks, California.
