DX7 Setup

by whirlygigster » Wed Apr 30, 2008 8:01 pm

Hi all,

I recently got my DX7 setup and controlling my Honeybee FP nicely, so I thought I'd post the details for all to see. I have to acknowledge John Sims, fivecheebs and pudd for pointing me in the right direction.

To fit the Spektrum receiver, read this post:
The Spektrum receiver thread

To setup the DX7 (sorry its a bit blurry and shaky - any questions just ask):

For the original thread concerning the set up of a DX6i:

The result:

Somebody moaned that they couldn't make out the video, I dont have a very good camera so apologies for that.

So here are my settings in text form, (scrolling DOWN through the menus):
First the main setup pages (turn on tx, holding select and down)
[MODEL SELECT]
SELECT
Model 5 Honeybee
HELI DSM

[SWASH TYPE]
1 SERVO
NORM

[INPUT SELECT]
AUX2 -> AUX2
GEAR -> GEAR

[THRO RECOVERY]
INH

[TRAINER]
INH

[TYPE SELECT]
HELI

And the normal setup screens (with TX on, press select and down together)
[D/R & EXP]
Never touched it

[MONITOR]
Just helps for setting up the rudder/throttle balance.

[TIMER]
Countdown timer 10 minutes

[PROG MIX3 and MIX2]
INH

[PROG MIX3]
THRO->RUDD ON
---RATE: 0%
-------- + 90%
---SW:ON
---OFFSET:0

[REVO MIX]
NORM---------STNT
UP L 80%-----UP 0%
DN L 80%-----DN 0%

[PITCH CURVE}
NORM (I don't use stnt 1&2 or throttle hold)

[THROTTLE CURVE]

[THRO HOLD]

[SUB TRIM]

AIL, ELEV, GEAR, PIT, AUX unchanged

[REVERSING SW]
THRO - Down
AILE - Down
ELEV - Up
RUDD - Up

This should get you started at least, you can play with the sub-trim and Revo-mix,
