wasp V3 gyro connection to graupner R700 receiver

Hello everyone,

I've bought a wasp V3 from skyartec. It had the skyartec gyro on it.
Thera are two output leads: one for the tail servo(usual 3 wire connector) and one with a yellow cable. On the manual of my R700 receiver shows just one connection for the gyro (the servo connection) so what to doe with the connector with the yellow cable. Is this just to control the gain by you transmiter instead of turnig the gain screw on the gyro itself?

thanks,

Mat

The extra yellow lead is the signal wire for the remote gyro gain. I am not sure what channel to connect it to on your Graupner, I think it would depend on the transmitter. For example with Spectrum equipment, we often select the channel labeled GEAR and use a switch on the transmitter to select between rate and heading hold mode.

I've now connected it to my to the channel that I also use to move retractable gear. So do I now just need to put it in the "gear out" position and start calibrating the helicopter?

btw: thanks for your answer PAS

Unfortunately I don't have a Graupner radio but on the Spectrum Dx7, you would set the Travel Adjustment.
I use +54% for Heading Hold Mode and -60% for Rate Mode.
Hope this helps!
