    I'm just about finished with my Tarot 680Pro Build (with extended arms!) and about ready to fly!

    Question/Clarification with my Futaba...

    Using my Futaba T10J, I set this up as follows...
    CH5/SWA - Retracts
    CH6/SWE - Camera Shutter (replaced IOC, I needed 3 pos sw!)
    CH7/SWC - Flight Mode (GPS, ATT, Man)
    CH8/SWD - Fail Safe

    Now I need the gimbal tilt on the VR. While I have channels available, how do I connect my gimbal to the receiver? Can I do this without using a second Rx? Can the S.BUS2 port be used for a CH? I'm using mode B on R3008SB. I'd prefer to only use one Rx if possible.

    If I do need a 2nd Rx, just to clarify, do I connect the receivers through S.BUS2 cable and keep this the same (connections on Rx1) except mode B on 1, mode D on 2 and my gimbal connected to port 1 (on Rx 2) for CH9?

    Thanks! I need my gimbal control!!

    I'm not familiar with futaba but it seems to me if sbus is supported than you would use that so you have all of your flight controls on a single wire then use the extra slots on the receiver for your gimbal, camera and retracts. I'm sure there's a you tube video that would explain it. Nice looking Tarot.

    Thanks!! Yes, I'm searching on my solution - might have to add an Rx for simplicity.
