Default co pilot 2 = ON/OFF switch on DX8

I need help.
I want to have the CP2 ON/OFF on the gear switch on my DX8 and also maintain control of the gyro thru the TX (gain is connected to Aux2 to free the gear channel and change channel to AUX2 in the gyro menu on TX)
I connected the ON/OFF from the cp2 into the gear channel receiver but during quick set up I'm not receiving signal from TX.
Please help.

Hi,

Please connect a servo to the gear channel with the receiver powered up and see if it moves when you throw the switch. If you are not seeing any movement, you may have to activate the switch in your transmitter. You also want to check your end point adjustments for channel 5 in your transmitter, you may have to open them up. Let me know how you make out, thanks.

This is actually a really easy fix to this, you should just hold down the roller when powering up, then go into "Switch Select" and set "Mix" to "Gear".
Then your Gear switch will control the Gear channel.
