Instruction of Function Switch

* EPA (Travel Setting)

Press the “MOD” switch to power on, yellow LED blinks slowly. Entering to the servo travel setting, rotate the remote control steering wheel to make servo stop at the desired position (turn left / turn right). Short press “MOD” switch, yellow LED blinks 2 times quickly, red LED blinks slowly, and green LED become solid, it means current travel has been saved. Then rotate the remote control steering wheel to make the servo stop at the other desired position, short press the switch, yellow LED blinks 2 times quickly, and then the yellow LED turns on, it means current travel has been saved as well. 2 seconds later, the gyro will automatically enter into initialization mode, once completed, gyro is ready for use.

* Reset ( Travel Restore Default Setting)

Press the “MOD” switch to power on and enter into the travel setting mode. After pressing and holding the switch for 3 seconds, the yellow LED starts to blinks alternately. Restore to default after 2 seconds. Then it will enter into initialization mode, once initialization is completed, the gyro is ready for use.

* Gyro Direction (Forward and Reverse Gain Setting)

In normal working status, press and hold the MOD switch for 4 seconds, yellow LED blinks slowly 3 times, then switch the gain forward or reverse.

* Dual Gain Mode Setting ( Normal / AVCS Mode)

In normal working conditions, fast press the “MOD” switch 2 times, yellow LED  is on lasting for 3 seconds, then switch the mode to Normal or AVCS . Normal side: Green LED, AVCS side: Red LED

Receiver Connection (Input Signal Mode)

* PWM(50-333Hz)

Suitable for most of remote control systems, while plug in the gain wire, it can adjust the sensitivity by transmitter (as pic 1); While do not plug in the gain wire, the gyro's potentiometer can be used for gain adjustment (as pic 2). 


Suitable for FUTABA latest S.BUS2 and S.BUS remote control system. When S.BUS2 signal input is used, default CH3 channel for sensitivity adjustment, and the gyro gain wire is not used.


Suitable for SANWA remote control system. When using SSR /SHR signal input, the output signal is automatically adapted to SSR /SHR signal.

Note: The SANWA SSR signal is only applicable to SSR servos. It may cause permanent damage if using regular servos.
