Ultra Beginner Settings

These settings are for hovering and slow flight only. These settings have very low servo travel which will make the controls less responsive to stick input if you need to tame down the controls even more.

Dual Rate and Expo Settings

 

 

 

 

Here is a list I made of common Dual Rate and Expo settings for Standard/Beginner/3D settings for Quads and Helicopters.

If you don’t like to use Expo you can set it to LIN.

LIN = Linear

Some radios use the term Line instead of LIN.

Spektrum – LIN

Walkera Devo – Line

Walkera 2801 Pro – LIN

 

Standard Settings

ELEV D/R = 70% to 100% > 70%, 80%, 85% are commonly used

EXP = +10% to +40% > +30% is commonly used

AILE D/R = 70% to 100% > 70%, 80%, 85% are commonly used

EXP = +10% to +40% > +30% is commonly used

RUDD D/R = 100% > For faster tail response and pirouettes (Heli) or faster rudder response and pirouettes (Quad) use 100% to 150%

EXP = LIN > For faster tail response and pirouettes (Heli) or faster rudder response and pirouettes (Quad) use -10% to -70%

 

Beginner Settings

ELEV D/R = +40% to +60% > 50% is commonly used

EXP = +30 to +40% > +30% is commonly used

AILE D/R = +40% to +60% > 50% is commonly used

EXP = +30 to +40% > +30% is commonly used

RUDD D/R = 75% to 100% > 100% is commonly used

EXP = LIN or +1% to +20% > LIN is commonly used

 

Ultra Beginner Settings

These settings are for hovering and slow flight only.

ELEV D/R = +30%

EXP = -10%

AILE D/R = +30%

EXP = -10%

RUDD D/R = 75% to 100% > 100% is commonly used

EXP = LIN or +1% to +25% > LIN is commonly used

A good combination would be to use the Beginner Settings on Switch Position “0”
and use the Ultra Beginner Settings on Switch Position “1”.

POS-0: ELEV D/R = 50% EXP +30%

POS-0: AILE D/R = 50% EXP +30%

POS-0: RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

POS-1 :ELEV D/R = 30% EXP -10%

POS-1: AILE D/R = 30% EXP -10%

POS-0: RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

 

3D Settings

ELEV D/R = 100% to 125% > 100% is commonly used

EXP = LIN or -10% to -70% > LIN is commonly used

AILE D/R = 100% to 125% > 100% is commonly used

EXP = LIN or -10% to -70% > LIN is commonly used

RUDD D/R = 100% > For faster tail response and pirouettes (Heli) or faster rudder response and pirouettes (Quad) use 100% to 150%

EXP = LIN > For faster tail response and pirouettes (Heli) or faster rudder response and pirouettes (Quad) use -10% to -70%
