RC Pro Setup Guide by: Tom Zadar

 

Setup for the Walkera QR Ladybird, Hoten X, QR Infra X using the Magic Cube MTC-01 – Walkera WK-2801 Pro Transmitter

 

Make sure you verify the settings after you are done before you fly.

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.

 

Step 1. Create a new model (or reset a current model) in the WK-2801 Pro TX. Any settings that I don’t list are default settings.

Step 2. Set to stick mode 2801 if it isn’t already set to it. Stay in 2801 stick mode.

*Make sure STICK is set to MODE2* Sometimes it will default to MODE1.

Step 3. Go into REVERS and set to: ALL NOR

Step 4. Go into SWASH and set to: 1 SERVO NORM

Step 5. Go into CURVES THRCURVE and set to:

Normal – 0-25-50-75-100

ST-1 – 0-25-50-75-100

ST-2 – 0-25-50-75-100

Step 6. Go into CURVES PITCURVE and set to:

Normal – 0-25-50-75-100

ST-1 – 0-25-50-75-100

ST-2 – 0-25-50-75-100

Step 7. Go into GYRHLD, GYROSENS and change INH to GYRO/AUX2

Set to: GYRO/AUX2

0: 34.0% = 6 axis mode – Red light on Ladybird

1: 66.0% = 3 axis mode – Green light on Ladybird

Step 8. Go into GYRHLD, THROHOLD, and change INH to THRO HOLD

Set to: THRO HOLD ACT

HOLD Pos. 0%

Set throttle trim to center.

Step 9. Go into DR&EXP and set to:

Set D/R and EXPO to your personal needs/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 +35%

AILE D/R = 50% EXP +35%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

 

3D Mode Settings

ELEV D/R = 110% EXP LIN

AILE D/R = 110% EXP LIN

RUDD D/R = 120% EXP -20 % > You can even try 150% for RUDD and more negative EXP for fast rudder response.

TRVAD

AILE – U & D 120%

ELEV – L & R 120%

RUDD – L & R 120%

 

Step 10: TRAVEL ADJ – All defaults (100%)
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 response of the rudder and the speed of pirouettes.

 

 

 

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%
