Don't go by the colours of the wires in the radio, they don't use standard colours, and sometimes they are different on different radios!
The gimbal colours are red, brown and yellow. Red should be 3.3V, brown 0V and yellow is the signal.
Use the measured voltages on the JST, 0V, and 3.29V are the power, the other is the signal.

Mike.
Mike,
If i'm understanding correctly where I read 0v, I'll put my black wire (on taranis gimbal), I'll put red on 3v. These gimbals have two different colors, the horizontal is green and the vertical is yellow so I'll put those where I read .3v. does this sound correct?

I've switched some wires around, everything is going in the correct direction but still don't get full throw after doing calibration. I'm going to trim some of the face plate and re-calibrate to see if that does the trick.

Now when I lower the stick it reads: RV 00AD -71.9, at center RV 00FB 0.0, at the top RV 02E 93.5

After doing this it now rests at center RV 00ED -13.9

Ok got everything to work. Mike you were correct it was wire ordering so I took some time to swap wires around. So for anybody who purchase the PR10 Taranis Gimbals this was my wiring order. With the radio open and looking at the back of the gimbals and working left to right.
Pitch and Roll (Right stick mode 2)
1st JST Vertical Wire Harness Black, Yellow, Red
2nd JST Horizontal Wire Harness Red, Green, Black

Throttle and Yaw (Left Stick Mode 2)
1st JST Vertical wire harness Yellow, Red, Black
2nd JST Horizontal Wire harness Black, Green Red

Thanks for your input Mike, I love Ersky9xr

Just flew 4 packs, the gimbals feel great though I'm not used to the way they feel so it's like learning all over again. Great radio, awesome firmware.....

Also blew the R9 resistor somehow when I had the radio open so had to bridge that before I went out to fly.

Thanks for your help

This may be a help with wiring new Gimbals to the Turngy 9x Radio: (viewtopic.php?f=94&t=10678#p133946).
Note: always better to use your Multimeter to be sure which Gimbal wire is which.
