    Hi. I have a hexacopter and an FC40. I would like to run both off of the Taranis. I have the fc40 opened up and there are two separate connector cables running from the existing receiver to the x1 and x2 slots on the naza. Can anybody tell me how/where to connect those two cables on the x8r?
    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I am new to the building/repairing aspect of RC.
    Thanks!

    Thanks again cityzen! I think I understand better after looking at that. However, for my own curiosity....why are there two cords currently running from receiver to x1 and x2 on naza? That's what threw me.

    I don't really know. My best guess is that one is the regular received data from the receiver to the Naza, while the other is for the Naza to update the receiver firmware.

    Edit: This is probably correct, since the other port on the receiver is labeled "ISP" (in-system programming).

    I believe the fc40 is pre-wired to recieve gimbal pitch control from the transmitter, and inturn pass that signal into the NAZA
