thats what i was going to suggest. use a known working setup that is easy to get to receiver and use a couple new servos by themselves set on the bench like they would be in the reaper . take one pair and go to your good aileron and ele channels...and see what the loose servos do? straight up and down on elevator stick both servos should move same diretion. left right on stik they should move opposite.! take advantage if you get that far and mark all leads and seervo direction and double check before glueing them in!

Good plan! I just got mine yesterday and Need mounting ideas. I was thinking of cutting a small square for the go pro to fit and just taping her down. The case for it is way heavy.

I'm thinking right behind and to the left of my FPV camera.

I leave the case off when it is on my EasyStar, but I think I want to use the case on this one. I plan for this to be much more acrobatic/wild than my EasyStar and want the extra protection from the case. I'm going to use the Skeleton Case so I can plug in my cables though.

Your using your GoPro as an FPV camera? If so I wouldn't use it for acrobatics then.

I'd love to use the case around the go pro as it's nice insurance. But the extra weight is what kills me. That's why I was figuring I can inbed it into the foam a bit. and put some foam around it to protect it.
