Install your receiver
WARNING! Remove props and disconnect battery before connecting the RX (receiver).
The Riot is compatible with any PPM, SBUS or DSMX receiver so you can choose the one that works best for you. For optimum performance, we recommend the FrSky XSR. Depending on the type of receiver, either solder to the corresponding pads or connect to the Spektrum plug on the flight controller.
WARNING! Do not solder a DSMX receiver to the receiver pads.
For Spektrum RX
For all DSMX receivers, connect to the I.E. SPM4648 Spektrum plug on the flight controller. Spektrum receivers are only rated for 3.3v and shouldn’t be soldered to the RX pads.
For FrSky PPM or SBUS RX
Solder a PPM or SBUS receiver such as the FrSky XSR to the corresponding pads on the flight controller. With soldering iron in hand, see the directions below.
a. Remove the top plate of the Riot’s frame using the
included torx driver.
b. Tin the pads on the flight controller.
c. Cut the receiver wires to the desired length.
2 inches is a good place to start.
d. Strip and tin the receiver wires.
e. Solder the receiver wires to the corresponding pads.
- GND = black
- SBUS = white
- S-port = yellow
- V+ = red
f. Plug the wires into the receiver.
g. Attach the receiver to top of flight controller
with a sticky dot or sticky tape.
h. Tuck the receiver antennas below top plate.
