Learning to operate a servo motor with the FS-i6 Transmitter will take our quadcopter flying skills to the next level after we’ve perfected the KK2.1.5 and CC3D flight processors. This manual will show you how to wire and configure a servo motor so that it can be used. Remote control of the servos is a great function of a transmitter for a quadcopter. An automatic camera gimbal, an airdrop mechanism, a fertilizer sprinkle mechanism for unmanned aerial vehicles, and many other mechanisms can be built by programming a transmitter to control a servo motor. The previous article expands upon the FS-i6 Transmitter and Receiver in greater detail.
Interfacing SG90 Servo Motor with FS-iA6B Receiver
We will now link the servo motor to the FS-iA6B transceiver. Six distinct channels are available on FS-iA6B devices. To operate the throttle, yaw, roll, and pitch of the quadcopter, a PWM link is made to the flight controller via Channels 1, 2, 3, and 4. We’re down to just two channels now, and of those, most people use channel 5 for things like the drone’s self-leveling. So, we’ll be using the last available channel—channel 6—to command the servo drive. Our FS-iA6B transceiver will be powered by a KK2.1.5 flight controller.

VRA and VRB Knobs – At the very top of the emitter, you’ll find these two controls. You can use these additional channels to give your model more functionality by connecting switches to them and operating features like the landing gear or the headlights. There are two knobs, as seen in the accompanying picture. For VRA, turn the knob on the left; for VRB, turn the knob on the right.
Turn on the transmission once the SG90 has been paired with the FS-iA6B receiver, and you’ll have control of the servo motor via the VRA or VRB control. So that the servo motor follows our commands as we turn the VRB dial, we have assigned that control to channel 6. This mechanism of control can be implemented in agricultural drones and drones used to transport pizza. This system is very straightforward, and it will allow you to command your servomotor while in the air.
This is the procedure for connecting the SG90 servo motor to the FS-i6 remote control. I really hope you got something out of this endeavor and had fun doing it. Please use the comment section below or our forum to initiate a discussion if you have any questions about this.
