Setting up and using #IR is very simple. It can be controlled via transmitter or flight controller. Below you will find a table that illustrates #IR functions, which channels they are allocated to and the values for engaging the functions.


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.

If you wish to trigger Seagull #IR from a Flight Controller, setting it up in Mission Planner is also straight forward. Start Mission Planner and follow the steps below.


“SHUTTER” – in the drop down list, chose the channel that Seagull #IR is connected to.

“PUSHED” – Set the value for the Picture mode


“NOT PUSHED” – Set the value “1500” ( Neutral state – see table above )

“DURATION” – Set the value “10”

( values may vary depending on your camera )
