User manual: Getting Started - Basic model configuration
Table of contents
Info - Allows you to change the model name and the directory in which it is stored, the number of channels used in a given model. It also shows the usage of "resources" is the amount of used mixers, rules, etc.
Center Servos – for output/servo centering do (reverse enabling too)
Model Variables - add access to 10 named „settings” for every model. This values can be used later in configuration definition.
Rearrange inputs - Allows for quick change assign functions to the inputs (sticks, knobs and switches). You can here: switch mode, move THR CUT to another switch...
Trainer (PPM IN) - Activation of PPM IN entry (trainer socket) and allows you to calibrate the value received.
Visualization - Simple show all output channels and the internal state of the transmitter
If the model reed from the SD card or downloaded from the Internet was created by someone else, I recommend the following procedure:
- In menu Rearrange inputs adjust location of inputs (sticks, knobs and switches) to you own preferences (example: throttle on right stick).
- In menu Model variables check if model has any settings which need to be adjustment to your own model configuration.
- In menu Visualisation check if all outputs behave as expected.
- In menu Centre servos adjust centre all servos to proper positions in your model. You need to power on your model to make this configuration.WARINGN! Take all safety measures for example, remove the propeller.
If you create a new model from scratch, I recommend "centering" of all the servos using the default model configuration (clean config). It has connection for proportional channel (output 1-7). By default THR (engine) is in the left rod and is connected to OUT3 (3rd output channel). WARNING! Take all safety measures, eg remove the propeller.
Menu:BASIC -> Info
This menu allows to change model name (default START) or/and directory name in which model will be saved on SD card (default RC_MODEL). You can check here how many resources you config uses.
„Chan.num” - determines maximum number of channels which model can use. It can't be greather that the one set in radio configuration (global config). If you lower this number, then in config don't appears variable names like Out9 and so one (it depends of course from selected number of channels). In addition, generated PPM signal has only desired number of channels. If your radio link can proper manage this, then it should reduce latency and increase model response time. określa maksymalną liczbę kanałów używaną w danym modelu. Nie można tu ustawić większej liczby niż skonfigurowana w konfiguracji toru radiowego (konfiguracja globalna). Zmniejszenie tej wartości powoduje, że w konfiguracji nie pojawiają się zmienne Out9 i wyższe (oczywiście odpowiednio do wybranej ilości kanałów). Dodatkowo generowany sygnał PPM zawiera tylko tyle impulsów kanałów ile jest niezbędnych dla danego modelu. Jeżeli twój tor radiowy poprawnie obsługuje taki przypadek powinno to skutkować zwiększeniem szybkości reakcji modelu.
Screen holds other infos about radio resource usage:
Mix. 1 2: that are numbers of defined/all mixers 1st and 2nd level.
Masz / WYS: The rules state machine (used / available) and display (used / available)
Np is the number of characters used by all subs (definitions names, display) / number of possible characters. It should be noted that to store the three-character string need four characters (1 character always used more to mark the end of the string
Pk is the number of points used in the mixers curves / total points.
Outputs - centering
Menu:BASES -> Centering servo
It allows you to shift "means" keeping their settings tilt servos.
This has been achieved by modifying the output signal PPM. Hence, the values shown here are calibrated in microseconds (analogous to radio track settings). The median value (between arrows) is PPM signal length corresponding to the value "0" Out1 output .. 8, and accordingly the value of the left (with the arrow left) and the right (at the arrow to the right) is the minimum and maximum length of the signal corresponding to the value of -100 and 100 Out1 output .. 8
variables of the model
Menu:BASICS -> variables model
Access to view and modify the internal variables of the model. These variables are used to entered in the configuration of certain "fixed" to be easily and frequently modified. These variables can be called for help (see option MODEL-> name).
For example, you can just save the maximum deflection of the flap and then use it in the mixer the definition of the model
In addition, you can use the rules to combine the selected state machine to control the trimmer variable model. If the assignment is active, the next value of the variable displayed is the symbol of the selected trim.
Set the input
Menu:BASES -> Reset Input
This function allows you to easily swap the locations of switches or potentiometers. Example of the screen:
Display names reflect the position of the relevant switches and potentiometers on the apparatus. Display names and their location may vary depending on the configuration model. Here TCUT, SRUD, SELE, TRN, GEAR, SAIL is a switch, a switch Fmod 3-way that can not be replaced with anything else, and the other subtitles mean potentiometers (rods and potentiometers). Rods are marked with an inverted capital letter T.
- Selecting one of the inputs and pressing the MENU key will cause the selection.
- Now the UP / DN can go and find another way of where we want to replace the selection. (When you select the next field, previously selected Selection will be blinking)
- If the selected input was switch, it will be possible to replace it only to other switches. Similarly, the selected potentiometer can be replaced only with the other dials.
- Conversion will not only replace the names, but also to modify the configuration. Replacing the corresponding entry with sticks can easily change here transmitter mode for the model that wczytaliśmy from the SD card!
Trener (PPM IN)
Menu:BASES -> Coach
This option allows you to activate inputs coach. By default, coach outlet is not turned on (PPM instead sends him to receive). If it is not necessary, it is advisable not to activate this option, because it extends the main program loop of about 0.4 ms (ie delay could increase by about 0.8 ms.
Menu:BASES -> Visualization
Shows variables Out1 - OUT8 (or more if they are active) in graphical form, and active virtual switches (on the right). If there are more than 8 outputs to show that you can move the screen up and down keys UP / DN.
