The software is Windows-only. Put the included CD in your computer.
Using the programming cable
Plug in the cable to your computer. A red light should illuminate.
Plug in the cable to the back of the transmitter.
Turn on the transmitter.
Open the program.
Note: If the program is opened without a transmitter or with a transmitter not correctly hooked up, a window will appear displaying "Invalid Port Number." The program will then open. If any settings are edited a message will appear displaying "Operation valid only when the port is open." A settings file may not be edited without a transmitter properly connected. If the transmitter is connected properly while the program is running, the program must be restarted to adjust the transmitter settings.
Save stores a file containing the transmitter settings to your computer.
Note: It is not necessary to press the save button to save the settings to the transmitter. This only saves a file to your computer. Each time a setting is changed it is stored in the transmitter. Because of this it is a good idea to save the stock settings to your computer as a separate file before changing any settings.
Open loads a settings file to the transmitter.
Endpoint adjusts the limit of output for channels 1-6.
The stock settings for EndPoint are:
The Revserve setting "reverses" the output direction of channels 1-6.
The stock settings for Revserve are:
Subtrim adjusts the center point of the six channel outputs.
The stock settings for SubTrim are:
DR is short for Dual Rates. On the Quadshot, DR adjusts the maximum angle at which the Quadshot will fly when in Modes 1 and 2. For any other aircraft this would change the maximum deflection angle of the servos.
It is not recommended to use dual rates with the Quadshot. The flight angles are all programmed within the brain, and are optimized for all modes.
The stock settings for DR are:
|DR ON||DR OFF|
Note: These setting currently do not affect how the Quadshot flies as no switches are assigned to activating the dual rates.
The Stick setting is the same as the Mode setting for transmitters. This changes the channels affected by stick inputs.
MODEL1: Common in Europe, throttle and roll are on the right stick while pitch and yaw are on the left stick.
MODEL2: Common in the United States, pitch and roll are on the right stick while throttle and yaw are on the left stick.
MODEL3: Throttle and yaw are on the right stick while pitch and roll are on the left stick.
MODEL4: Pitch and yaw are on the right stick while throttle and roll are on the left stick.
The stock setting for Stick is: MODEL2
Type changes what type of aircraft the transmitter will fly.
ACRO: This is used for aircraft without a swash plate.
HELI-120: This is used for helicopters with a 120 degree swash plate.
HELI-90: This is used for helicopters with a 90 degree swash plate.
HELI-140: This is used for helicopters with a 140 degree swash plate.
The stock setting for Type is: ACRO
The settings for MIX 1 and MIX 2 should not be changed if you intend to fly the Quadshot. These settings are vital for normal operation.
Please note that every time the MIX. setting is opened it defaults to MIX 1 regardless of which mix was open when the settings were last saved. Be sure to choose MIX 3 each time the MIX. setting is opened if the Quadshot is to be flown with this transmitter.
The default settings for MIX 1 are:
|Mix Num||MIX 1|
The default settings for MIX 2 are:
|Mix Num||MIX 2|
The default settings for MIX 3 are:
|Mix Num||MIX 3|
Mix 3 can be edited to your liking. However, it is not recommended to mix in yaw with roll as many pilots do. This is because it is already mixed for Modes 1 and 2 when in forward flight, but not in hover or Mode 3.
Switch A and Switch B have the same three options:
NULL: This setting causes the switch to be inactive.
DR: This setting causes the switch to turn the dual rates on and off.
ThroCut: This setting causes the switch to reduce the throttle to zero independent of where the throttle stick may be in one direction. The other switch direction causes the throttle to react notmally.
The stock setting for Switch A is: NULL
The stock setting for Switch B is: NULL
The settings for VR(A) should not be changed if you intend to fly the Quadshot. These settings are vital for normal operation. The stock setting for VR(A) is: NULL
The settings for VR(B) should not be changed if you intend to fly the Quadshot. These settings are vital for normal operation. The stock setting for VR(B) is: NULL
