Default Tarot ZYX throttle monitor question

Hey guy's, i installed my ZYX today, setup went quite well, i'm using the usb and software, but on the monitor screen i'm not sure about the throttle part, every thing moves apart from the throttle monitor... is this normal, do i just setup collective, cyclic and rudder? no matter what i try the throttle monitor doesn't move, anyone that has this gyro could you advice me please.
Thx Matt.

I'm seeing the samething with the 4.0 software. I'm also seeing opposite monitor movement compared to the 1.22 software I've been using. I'm staying with the 1.22 since it's working for me

The Throttle is not connected to the ZYX, it goes from the ESC to the Rx.

Don't worry about the monitor screen. Make sure your swashplate and tail respond correctly to stick inputs and gyro compensation and go fly. I highly recommend you go with fw 4.0. It flies much better than previous versions.

Thank you Dr M, just so I'm sure, because the esc is connected to the rx I should ignore the throttle on the monitor screen? Makes sense thank again.
Running 4.0.

I did update my fireware to 4.0, so does that mean I should be using the 4.0 software? Thanks.

I am running s-bus and the throttle monitor works on my screen. I also have my esc connected to fbl unit. the next thing to try is the gov on this when I get time to hook up the phase sensor.
