- Connect the radio and gyro
on a Belt CP
This information applies in general to both the Belt
CP V1 and V2
They say that a picture is worth a thousand
words, so above is an image taken from the Esky Belt CP manual after
having been cleaned up and all the Chinese text "removed" for
The positions of the Radio Receiver (RX)
and the ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) on the helicopter frame are
optional, and you may well have them mounted in different positions.
One thing to bear in mind when mounting the
ESC is to try to place it in a position where it will get the maximum
downdraft from the rotor blades to help in cooling, which they all need.
Many people disconnect the leads form the
receiver after an accident or whatever, and then have no idea how to
connect them. The diagram above shows this very clearly using the stock
Esky 6 channel RX unit. PLEASE NOTE that the WHITE or YELLOW wires
on your connector leads go the TOP of the RX as shown in the small
diagram above it
I will clarify them working from the bottom
(1) to (B)
1 - Aileron. Be careful as there are
TWO separate Aileron Servos. So if you have done the RDTS modification,
you may have to put this in 6 and the lead from the other aileron servo
in 1, but usually the left hand aileron servo goes in here.
2 - The elevator servo goes here
3 - The connecting lead from your ESC fits
4 - The main connecting lead form your gyro
fits here. DO NOT Put the single control wire from the gyro (if you have
one) in this one.
5 - This is for the single control wire
from the gyro.
6 - This is for the OTHER aileron servo,
rather confusingly referred to as the PITCH servo. If the swash
plate moves incorrectly, swap the leads in 1 and 6 over.
B - This is not used typically.
For additional cooling when using the stock
Esky ESC, it is good idea to carefully cut away a square of the clear
covering over the heat sink to let more air to pass over it directly, as
the Esky ESC's are well know to get very hot very easily..
