HP6DSM Dip Switch settings

I bought a HP6DSM for my SR 120 and MCX2. Other owners of this radio said to use Dip switch 4. Using 4 I had no throttle. Another owner of a HP6DSM suggested I use 3,5,7 that what his settings. 3,5,7 are the dip switch settings that I had to use as well. Just thought I would post this for someone using a search for HP6DSM dip switch settings.

Binding Process:
First power up your RX in Bind Mode (install Bind Plug, if applicable). To enter bind mode with the transmitter, pull the trainer (TRAINER) switch toward the front of the transmitter, then, while holding the trainer switch forward, power the transmitter on. You’ve successfully entered bind mode when the transmitter beeps and the red LED located under the door on the bottom left front of the transmitter blinks
rapidly. You can release the trainer switch after the transmitter stops beeping and the transmitter will remain in bind mode until the binding process is complete. Then, once the orange LED on the receiver glows solidly, the receiver is bound to the transmitter. Now you will need to power down the transmitter and receiver. (Remove Bind Plug from RX, if applicable).

From what i've read for the 120 to work (as i don't have a HP6DSM)
