help! Blade 400 servo>RX connections

Went to hook up a RX and ran into a snag. While pulling a connection from the RX it popped out and brought the others with it, i.e. disconnected all but one of the wires to the RX.

I cannot locate anywhere a diagram that shows which cable goes to which pins on the AR6100e receiver.

Can anyone help?

Basically there are the following servos on my Blade 400

1. Servo on the RIGHT just behind the main drive shaft

2. Servo on the LEFT just behind the main drive shaft

3. Servo in the nose area which has two connecting rods going from it to the swash plate

4. Connector from the ESC

5. Tail servo (have this one figured out)

On the AR6100e there are the following inputs

AUX1
GEAR
RUDD (I have this one handled>TAIL SERVO)
ELEV
AILE
THRO
BATT

I understand reasonably well Rudder, Aileron, Elevator but that still leaves one left over and no matter what I do my tests (without the HC connected) are not successful.

From left to right looking at the receiver from the connections on the back:

batt-open
thro-ESC
aile-Lower rear servo
elev-front servo
rudd-tail servo plugs into the gyro, gyro plug goes here.
gear-one yellow wire also from the gyro.
aux1-upper rear servo

Hope that helps you out

Maybe a silly question but what is the "batt" connection on the receiver actually used for?

No!. Other than to plug in a flightpack battery if you use the reciever in a plank( airplane) Nitro engine powered.
