Powering X8R Receiver

Post by PlasticJesus » Sat Sep 14, 2019 6:52 am

Sorry for a super noob question, but I have my new X8R and there is seriously nothing in the documentation to suggest how to apply power to the damn thing ;)
I do mostly robotics work and am dabbling in RC flight, and am pretty good with electronics, but I've been through the two pages of docs on this thing and there is nothing at all on power except to specify the operating voltage. I've scoured the interwebs and nary a single wiring diagram with anything useful on it. I suppose others are just born with this information? LOL.
Please someone help!
Thanks so much.

You apply power to any of the servo plugs, according to the polarity on the sticker...
