This review is from: Hobbymate 3 axis flight controller for Rc Airplane, Delta Wing, Gliders, Parkfly (Toy)

So far so good! Easy to setup. Hooked up to my delta in under a minute. Switch to activate works perfectly, and is a great feature for getting the gains setup perfectly.

The 3-pin Servo connections are laid out [ Signal - Power - Ground ]. They are not labeled on the case itself, but are easy to figure out.

I simply plugged in my 2 servos to their respective Ail1 and Elev outputs, and plugged my receivers Aileron channel into Ail In, and Elevator into the Elev In channel. Removed any settings I had in my transmitter for Elevon mixing, and flipped the Delta dip switch on the 3-axis Flight Controller. Turn the plane on, wiggle it around, and make sure the Elevons react in the appropriate directions. If not, reverse them on the flight controller. Test moving the stick on your transmitter to make sure the Elevons move as expected, and your good to go tuning! The AUX channel can be connected to any switch on your transmitter that you can set. It allows you to flip a switch to disable the gyro, making it very easy for test flying after adjusting your gains.
