Exclamation Need Help Fast!

Okay I'm setting up my spectra with an AR70000 receiver and DX7. What channel do I plug the "pitch" servo into on the receiver and how do I set-up my DX7 so that it recognizes the ptich servo. I can't get the pitch servo to respond. Thanks! I'm trying to get the heli setup for tomorrow maiden hover!

Well I pluged the servo into another channel on the receiver and I'm not getting any response from the servo. This leaves me to believe that the servo is dead. Sound right? Please let me know because I really would like to get this resolved so I can atleast get my Spectra into a hover to get everything else sorted out. Thanks!

The collective pitch servo is plugged into Aux 1 on your AR7000 and your DX7 must be in helicopter mode. If your DX7 is in helicopter mode and the servo is still not working and it doesn't work in channels 1,2, or 3 then the servo is defective.

Sure did Peter. The servo seems to be dead. I ordered another one last night. Hopefully by next weekend I can maiden my Spectra.
