Blade mSR/mSR X Helicopter – Standard & Beginner Transmitter Settings

 

RC Pro Setup Guide by: Tom Zadar

 

Setup for the Blade mSR/mSR X – Spektrum DX6I, DX7/DX7se, DX7s, DX8/DX18, DX9 Transmitter.

* ACRO Mode

* HELI Mode

You can use HELI or ACRO mode.

 

Select a new model or reset a current model.
Any settings that are not listed below are default settings.

 

Model Type – ACRO

All you need to do is select a new model or rest a current model, select ACRO for Model Type and bind the heli. All the settings are defaults. The only settings to program are Dual Rate and Expo.

 

TRAVEL ADJ – All defaults (100%)
For quicker control response increase the ALIE and ELEV Travel Adjustment. *If you set the values too high the servos might bind.
Beginners should use the default values of 100%

Adjust RUDD Travel Adjustment to control the tail response and the speed of pirouettes.

 

DR&EXP

Set D/R and EXPO to your personal preference.

Standard Settings

ELEV D/R = 70% EXP +30%

AILE D/R = 70% EXP +30%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

 

Beginner Settings

ELEV D/R = 50% EXP +30%

AILE D/R = 50% EXP +30%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

 

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.

ELEV D/R = 30% EXP -10%

AILE D/R = 30% EXP -10%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP +20%

 

 

Model Type – HELI

Reverse: All Normal

Swash Type: 1 SERVO 90°

Travel Adjustment: All 100%

For quicker control response increase the ALIE and ELEV Travel Adjustment. *If you set the values too high the servos might bind.
Beginners should use the default values of 100%

Adjust RUDD Travel Adjustment to control the tail response and the speed of pirouettes.

Use these settings if you want a more aggressive helicopter.
If you are a beginner you should use 100% instead.
These settings will be too aggressive for beginners.

AILE: 125% – 125%

ELEV: 125% – 125%

RUDD: 125% – 125%

 

Sub Trim: All 0%

 

GYRO:

RATE SW-GYRO
0: 100.0%
1: 0.0%

Use the gyro switch to switch between high and low rate.

 

THRO HOLD

Default is INH. Enable throttle hold and use these settings.

HOLD POS. 0.0%
SW: RUDD D/R

 

Throttle Curve

Normal Mode

L 0.0%
2 30.0%
3 45.0%
4 60.0%
H 75.0%

Stunt Mode

L 0.0%
2 40.0%
3 60.0%
4 80.0%
H 100.0%

Flight Mode switch on position “0″ = Less aggressive throttle curve

Flight Mode switch on position “1″ = More aggressive throttle curve

 

DR&EXP

Set D/R and EXPO to your personal preference.

Standard Settings

ELEV D/R = 70% EXP +30%

AILE D/R = 70% EXP +30%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

 

Beginner Settings

ELEV D/R = 50% EXP +30%

AILE D/R = 50% EXP +30%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

 

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.

ELEV D/R = 30% EXP -10%

AILE D/R = 30% EXP -10%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP +20%

 

 

 

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%
