Good day everybody ! Hope you are all doing well ! I am new on this forum and I am looking for solutions for my problem:

I am building a drone and I would like to connect my flight controller (Openpilot CC3D) to my RC receiver (Windbox receiver 12ch FHSS V5). Please find attached pictures.  I was going through various tutorials on the web but I did not find anything related to the use of this specific receiver and how to connect it to the flight controller.

I read that, depending on the protocol to transmit signal, the cabling arrangement will be different.

As per the Windbox manual, the receiver can operate in 2 modes:

1)PWMmode:PWMsignaloutputfromtheNo.1toNo.12portinthefrontofthereceiver,andSBUSsignaloutputfromtheSBUSport.

2)PPMmode:theSBUSportofthereceiveroutputtheNo.1PPMchannel,andCH12portoutputtheNo.2PPMchannel.EachPPMchannelcontainseightsignalchannels.

Has anyone already worked with a Windbox receiver and knows how to properly connect it to the flight controller ? 

Thanks for your help !!
