Connect SBUS/PPM receiver to the SBUS/PPM port on the hyper quick release as shown in the picture.

The receiver must be connected to correct wires order. The SBUS/PPM port has 5V output to power the receiver, please do not use external power supply to power the receiver at the same time. Doing so may damage the electronic inside the gimbal.

There are 6 channels to assign: MODE, TILT, ROLL, PAN, TILT SPEED, PAN SPEED. Assign MODE channel first then follow the order above because MODE channel is used to change operating modes of the gimbal and should be assigned to a 3-position switch as follows:

  • Switch at high position: FOLLOW MODE , MOTORS ON

  • Switch at middle position: LOCK MODE , MOTORS ON

  • Switch at low position: MOTORS OFF


TILT and PAN channel should be in speed mode and ROLL channel in angle mode. TILT SPEED or PAN SPEED could be assigned to the same channel and should be assigned to throttle stick, dial, or other non-centering control on the transmitter. Below is an example of channel assignment to the Futaba T8FG.
