Walkera V100D01 Helicopter – Standard & Beginner Transmitter Settings

 

RC Pro Setup Guide by: Tom Zadar

 

Setup for the Walkera V100D01 – RX2441V 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.*

 

Step 1. Select a new model (or reset a model). Any settings that I don’t list are default settings.

Step 2. COMPTB 2401 and STICK to MODE2

Step 3. REVERS – 1R, 2R, 3N, 4N

Channel 1 is ELEV and channel 2 is ALIE.

Make sure the throttle trim is set all the way down. Default is center.

 

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.

 

D/R and Expo

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 2601 or 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 bring up your hot key you need to hold down the left EXT button and keep it down then
press the hot key button you assigned that you want.
That’s it, you can now fly the V100D01.

You need to know this. When you plug in the battery you will get 2 quick beeps, then turn on the TX and wait for it to bind.
Now wait for 3 beeps from the tail motor and in a 2-3 seconds and you will get 3 beeps from the main motor also.
Now you are ready to fly.

 

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%

 

 

Walkera V100D01 RX-2441V Settings

Factory settings are 11:30 o’clock for RUDD, 12 o’clock for ELEV and ALIE, and 10 o’clock for ELEV-ALIE Ext.

I was first using 1 o’clock for RUDD, ELEV and ALIE turned all the way up (Max), and 12 o’clock for ELEV-ALIE Ext.

Then I went to 1 o’clock for RUDD, 3 o’clock for ELEV and ALIE, and
12 o’clock for ELEV-ALIE Ext.

My current settings are now 1 o’clock for RUDD, 2 o’clock for ELEV and ALIE, and ELEV-ALIE Ext. turned all the way up (Max).

I have found that ELEV-ALIE Ext will max out at past 1 o’clock as the
servos are maxed out and can’t move anymore.

Here is a HD settings video I made.
Note: Set to STICK MODE 2 not MODE 1. It defaulted to Mode 1 as I loaded the model.

Walkera V100D01 TX Settings for WK-2801 Pro TX

 

 

Receiver – Gyro Sensitivity Settings

The receiver has one or two gyro sensitivity pots depending on the model of the receiver to adjust the Elevator/Aileron sensitivity, changes the flight effect.
Adjust the pot(s) to make the helicopter more response or more stable. You want a balance of good response and stability.
If you adjust the pot(s) too high the swashplate may rock back and forth in flight.

Turning up or down the Elevator/Aileron sensitivity can make the helicopter much more responsive or much more stable.
I recommend you first try the factory settings. Most of the time the factory settings are very good.

Be careful when you turn the pot. I would use the plastic screwdriver that came with the helicopter to turn the pot.
Some of the pots will turn 360* and some have a stop on the pot to keep it from turning 360*.
Be careful not to turn it anymore once the pot stops or the stop tab will get damaged and the pot will then turn 360*.

Notes:

Nose pitches up in fast forward flight with a 3 axis or 6 axis gyro.

Receiver gyro gain is too low. Increase the Elevator/Aile gyro trim pot(s).

If the receiver gyro gain is too high the heli may bob up and down.

Receiver Settings for Helicopters and Quads.

This is a list of settings that I have seen on different receivers.
The settings available on a receiver will vary depending on which model receiver it is.

Helicopters:

AILE-G.S or ALIE GYRO – Adjusts the Aileron Gyro sensitivity, changes the flight effect.

ELE-G.S or ELEV GYRO – Adjusts the Elevator Gyro sensitivity, changes the flight effect.

RUDD GS – (Rudder Gyro sensitivity adjust knob) – Adjusts the Rudder Gyro sensitivity, changes the flight effect.

ELE/AILE G. – Adjusts the Elevator/Aileron sensitivity, changes the flight effect.

ADJ Mode Switch or ADJ – WK (Adjustment Mode setting) – Turns off the Gyros. Use when leveling the Swashplate and making adjustments.

EXT – Adjusts the Servo Travel.

SERVO EXT. – (Servo Extent knob) – Servo Extent knob is used to increase or decrease Servo Travel.

ELE/AILE EXT (Elevator/Aileron Servo Extent knob) – Adjusts the Servo Travel.

RUDD EXTENT or RUDD. EXT (Rudder Servo Extent knob) – Adjusts the Tail Servo Travel.

Pit.REV (Pitch Reverse switch) – Reverse the rotation direction of the Pitch Servo.

ON – OFF (Flight mode switch) = Set/choose helicopter flight mode.

OFF – BAL – ON (Flight mode switch) = Set/choose helicopter flight mode.

BAL DELAY (Balance Control Delay) – Adjusts the signal control speed from the ELEV/ALIE servo, changes the flight effect.

Quads:

Gyro sensitivity adjust knob – Adjusts the gyro sensitivity of the front/back/left/right/tail.

—————————————————————————————

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%
