Hi,
If the module for your Evo works the same as for the Aurora9 (and I assume it does), then the attached .pdf might help. Basically, you hold the bind button on the module down while powering up...

Steve, I knew that you were a bit advanced, as a pilot, to get a lot of enjoyment out of the sport wing, so the 3D wing makes more sense. Using the sport wing as an aileron trainer also makes a lot...
