Blade SR Helicopter – Standard-Beginner-3D Transmitter Settings

 

RC Pro Setup Guide by: Tom Zadar

 

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

 

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

 

Model Type – HELI

Reverse: Reverse Rudd and Pitch. The rest are all Normal.

Swash Type: CCPM 120

Sub Trim: All 0%

Swash Mix:

Aile +60%
Elev +60%
Pitch -35%

TRAVEL ADJ
For quicker control response increase the ALIE and ELEV Travel Adjustment. Beginners should use the default values of 100%
Adjust RUDD Travel Adjustment to control the tail response and the speed of pirouettes.

 

Gyro Gain:

Gyro gain is adjusted on the G110 Micro Heading Lock. There is a Gain pot you can adjust.

If you would like to adjust the Gyro Gain with your Transmitter, hookup the plug with the Yellow Wire on the G110 to Channel 5 on the Receiver. Make sure to plug this in correctly.

Use these settings as starting points and adjust as needed.

GYRO:

RATE SW-GYRO
0: 25% – Rate mode
1: 75% – Heading hold mode

 

Throttle Curve – DX6I

NORM 0% 40% 60% 80% 100%
STUNT 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
HOLD 10% 10% 10% 10% 10%

Throttle Curve – DX7/DX7se, DX7s, DX8/DX18

NORM 0% 40% 60% 80% 100%
ST-1 100% INH 75% INH 100%
ST-2 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
HOLD 0% 0% 0% 0% 0%

 

THRO HOLD

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

HOLD POS. 0.0%
SW: RUDD D/R

 

Pitch Curve

NORM 30% 40% 50% 75% 100% *
STUNT 0% 25% 50% 75% 100%
HOLD 0% 25% 50% 75% 100 **

* If you are a beginner you can use NORM 50% 50% 50% 75% 100%
This will give you zero degree negative pitch for indoor flying or outdoor flying with no wind. The heli will not slam to the ground if you pull the throttle down to fast due to having negative pitch. Do not use this for stunt modes, only use this for normal mode.

** Option 2. HOLD 50% 50% 50% 50% 50%

This will help minimize damage in a crash as the swash and blades will be at mid stick zero degrees pitch.
This will also help prevent a boom strike.
The swash does not move with TH with these settings.
If you want control of the swash in TH to help you land in a crash don’t use these settings.

 

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 0%

 

Beginner Settings

ELEV D/R = 50% EXP 30%

AILE D/R = 50% EXP 30%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP 0%

 

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. Don’t try to flip or 3D with these settings.

ELEV D/R = 30% EXP -10%

AILE D/R = 30% EXP -10%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP +20%

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 0%

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

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

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

 

3D Settings

ELEV D/R = 125% EXP LIN

AILE D/R = 125% EXP LIN

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP -6%

 

 

 

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
