Default Newbie Question

just starting out with Blade nano qx, 180qx, 200qx and 350qx3 using a Spektrum dx6 radio, just purchased a eachine 250 racer ARF and realize that this not BNF. My radio come with a AR610 receiver but the wire kit coming with the eachine has square plugs and will not fit my receiver. What do I need to get to be able to fly my eachine with my DX6. looking online on various videos on youtube i'm in for quite a steep learning curve setting this thing up and using CC3D and open pilot

Can you show a picture of what you are talking about? If I understand correctly you purchased one that requires a receiver but you dont have the correct plug to go into the CC3d? It should have a harness with a plug on one side that goes into the CC3d and the other should have standard receiver/servo plugs that connect to the AR610.

Default you are correct

that is the picture of the wires that come with racer kit. what I"m saying is that the wiring harness has one end that plugs into the flight board but the other end the ones that plug into the receiver the AR610 have rectangular plugs and the AR610 side has openings that are not rectangular, I think maybe they are called JR type plugs so they will only go one way (polarity sensitive). I've been doing some research just need to swap out with JR type plugs with the rectangular plugs. I will get it sorted out. thanks for your reply

Pull the pins out of the connectors, put heat shrink on them and plug them into the receiver. You only need the signal wires for each channel and a positive and negative lead to power the receiver. Here is an example of what I have done in the past although I had the correct plug for the signal, positve and negative leads on my throttle channel.

Scroll down to receiver and look at the harness pics. Are those the ones you're talking about? http://wikirotors.com/index.php?title=Eachine_Racer_250
