Default HW 100 v3 Connection?

HW Has 1) Thr cable- 3 wires, and 2) BEC- 2 wires, RPM- 1 wire.
Where do the BEC wires go into the unit? This gave me pause:

"Hint: At the RPM sensor input an external voltage must not be connected under any circumstances, as this could result in damage to the 3Digi"

Separate the RPM signal and put the BEC in any other open port.

I will be using Spek sats, so the REC. (or rather the "reveiver") port is the only open one.
Thx.

Are you using the cyclic 4 channel? That's where I put my Bec power in and the room into its own servo connector

Done. Now, binding problem.
Spektrum DX7 and sat plugged into inner slot.
Start Terminal. Click bind box. Spektrum 1 sat, DSMX 11ms. Save. Close Terminal. Unplug pc cord. Plug in heli bat. Red and Grn lites shine. No flashing lite on sat.

Check the 3Digi “Live data” menu when you are connected with your PC... bottom left side bar below your par set menu selections... anyway on that screen you will find RC1 and RC2 status lights... if you hover your mouse over RC1 it will indicate your Spektrum receiver status.

I see the RC1 in red (fail safe).
Still unable to bind. What does this tell me to do?
Thx

I don’t have Spektrum setup so I can’t help much with that... I would recommend reviewing the 3digi manual regarding the binding process. Looks like you have a few options for linking the 3digi

There’s a power up delay on the configuration menu... Diverse tab. Default is 0 seconds... try setting to 1 or 2 seconds. Might help delay 3digi initialization while the Spektrum Rx is binds.

Verify correct modes on the Transmitter tab... choose your receiver setup... DSM or DSMX, single or dual Rx... 11ms or 22ms frame rate, etc.
