Connect the servo cable by following the polarity markings on Seagull #IR and connect the other end of 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 what ports to utilize.
NOTE: for Pixhawk users – #IR is powered by Pixhawks power rail ( the middle pin + ). Ensure that the rail is powered by BEC or other power source ranging from 3.5-5.5 volts in order for Seagull #IR to function properly.
• Voltage: 3.5 – 5.5 volts ( 5 volts recommended – do NOT exceed 5.5 volts !! )
• Current: 21.50mA max ( when STATE LED is Solid ON – varies when Fading )
• Input signal: Standard R/C PWM between 1000 – 2000μS
