ELEFANT WIRING

Post by bryanrmassie » Wed Jul 17, 2019 6:09 pm

Hi All

Does anyone know the correct set up for a DX7, the receiver I got with it is an AR 8000, I don't have elevation or smoke so its just 2 from audio and 2 from motion control, I have tried a few different ways but all I got was 1 track moving when I put toggle switch left and the other when right, also cant get any sound either , someone help please !! :oops: :oops:

Hi Stephen

Have followed the brief but still nothing, I have tried to take a photo but it says the file is too large to send !! aaargh, it doesn't say which 2 ports the wires from the audio go into the receiver, maybe I have them wrong ?
Any advice welcome

Hi Brian,

Are you using the new modules ie 2 modules instead of 4 ?

Hi Dennis

Yes just the 2 modules, when I first started it up the left hand track went on full bore but I obviously had the wires crossed but they are in the right position now but I'm getting nothing, is there a possibility I might have damaged something ?

I need to know where each wire is going from and to starting with the receiver then to the audio module and then to speed control module. Socket nos and desc on the receiver. Also are you using twin sticks or single stick for track control.

Hi Dennis
The wiring is as follows :
from receiver-AUX 1 to pos 1 on Audio
and gear to pos 4

from receiver- Elev to pos 3 on motion control
and Aileron to pos 4

Pretty sure I have set it up as single stick also

Thank's

Bry.

Bryan,

On the Audio Module.
Elev should go to RC1 (pos 1) on the audio module, Aileron should go to RC2 (pos 4) on the audio module. RC1 loopback (pos 2)should go to pos 3 on the motion control module, RC2 loopback (pos 5) should go to pos 4 on the motion control module.

To control the sounds with 3 pos switch that needs to go from the receiver (which ever channel you are using) to RC3 (pos 6) on audio module.

If this is not clear or if you have any further problems it may be better to talk over the phone, you can email me with number if you like.

Dennis.
