Walkera 4#3B & CB100 Helicopter – Standard & Beginner Transmitter Settings

 

RC Pro Setup Guide by: Tom Zadar

 

Setup for the Walkera 4#3B & CB100 Helicopter – RX2406C, RX2605A Receiver – Walkera WK-2801 Pro Transmitter

 

Make sure you verify the settings after you are done before you fly the helicopter.
On the WK-2801 Pro you must hit ENT to save a setting, if you just back out of the menu it will not save the setting.

 

Setup for the 4#3B & CB100 with WK-2801 Pro and RX2406C.

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

 

Stick – Mode2, COMPT 2401

REVERS – 1R, 2N, 3N, 4N,

* Your throttle trim MUST be all the way down or the tail motor esc will not arm.

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.

If you want D/R & Expo –

Assign a Hot Key:

If you want Expo and D/R set COMPTB to 2801 and assign a hot key for Expo & D/R. Then set
COMPTB back to 2401.
To do this go into 2801 mode and go into the Expo, D/R screen. Then push down
at the same time the UP and DN buttons. A menu will pop up called
Hot Keys. Select the button you want to assign it to then hit ENT.
Now go back to mode 2401 and the hot key (s) you set will
be there.
This trick will work for almost all menus like throttle, pitch, gyro gain,
subtrim, etc…

To recall a Hot Key you assigned:

You MUST HOLD DOWN the left EXT button and “keep it down” then
press the hot key button you assigned that you
want. Then your menu will pop up for you.

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%

———————————————-

Setup for the 4#3B & CB100 with WK-2801 Pro and RX2605A.

Swash – 1servo

Thrcurv – Norm – Linear (default) 0%-25%-50%-75%-100%

PITCURV – Linear (default) 0%-25%-50%-75%-100%

Gyrhld: Gryo – 85% – Try this to start out with. It will be INH at default. Switch it to GYRO/AUX2

REVERS – All are normal with the RX2605A in 2801 stick mode.

STICK – MODE2, COMPT 2801

Your throttle trim MUST be all the way down or the tail motor esc will not arm.

On the THRCURV menu you want 0-25-50-75-100.
You will also see IN and OUT below the percent.
Make sure OUT is set at -16. This is your throttle trim adjustment
on the radio. So if the trim is all the way down it will read -16
or maybe -15.

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.

Set D/R and EXPO to your personal preference.

Standard Settings

ELEV D/R = 30% EXP -10%

AILE D/R = 30% EXP -10%

Reciever:

AILE to left/right servo

ELEV to up/down servo

PIT not used

RUDD not used

TAIL MOT SIG to tail ESC

MAIN MOT SIG not used

You MUST put the MIX pot on the 4in1 to MAX.
Then if needed go into the subtrim in your RX – SUBTRIM RUDD and turn it up to
where you need it until the tail holds straight. I have mine at R 21.

The power cable on the 4in1 that goes to the battery is not used in this setup.
I took mine off to save weight and clutter.

 

 

 

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-1: 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%
