Connect the servo cable by following the colored polarity markings on Seagull #IR and connect the other end of the servo cable to your Receiver / Flight Controller, with the correct polarity.
Please refer to the manual of your specific R/C radio system or Flight Controller to find out more about how to connect accessories and which ports to utilize.
If connecting to a Flight Controller – ensure that the there is power throughout rails as most of the controllers by default do not output any. It is recommended to use external supply such as BEC or other power source – do not exceed manufacturers specified maximum input voltages for the systems in use.
