Are there any particular channels on the receiver that must be used for parts of the air frame ? and how is the throttle controlled ?
Do you have a transmitter (Tx) with Mode 1 (throttle on right) or Mode 2 (Throttle on left), throttle is the gimbal that does not self centre when released (sorry if that appears as a dumbdown but you did say "complete novice"
If Mode 1 then remember RETA as channels 1,2,3,4 (expanded Rudder Ch1 - left gimbal horizontal, Elevator Ch2 -left gimbal vertical, Throttle Ch3 - right gimbal vertical, Airleron Ch4 - right gimbal horizontal). Install the corresponding servos by action to the channel number on the receiver (Rx), ESC will be installed to Ch3 on the Rx.
If mode 2 (I very well could be wrong here
) remember RTEA as channels 1,2,3,4.
Someone PLEASE correct if I am wrong fro Mode2
That's a start, but as Peter says, grab yourself a flight sim, preferably something that works on your Turnigy and scower through this forum, Bruces vids and flog YouTube. The info is out there and you will have fun looking.
