Transmitter Setup Guides - How to Videos - Models for Deviation Firmware


All of my Transmitter Setup Guides, How to Videos, and Models for Deviation Firmware are on my web site:

bobepine's Genius CP setup guide is also on my site.

I added a lot of new setup guides and will keep adding more as new models come out and for the models that I review.

I also made a lot of models for the Deviation Firmware.

Very well done Tom.

Beyond impressive.

Your attention to detail is admirable. Hope you are suitably rewarded if you follow suit in whatever you do for a living.

Hi Tom,

I installed RX2610V2 that had reached from WOW yesterday in 4G6FBLmod.
Then, I found very important trick to the setting of 1SERVO of TX(WK2801Pro V2.2).

It is that a top and bottom of SWASHPLATE direction changes by the polarity of (+/-) of PIT of SWASHMIX of 3SERVOS.
Numerical values are quite unrelated and only the polarity of PIT influences the direction.

It sets to 3SERVOS, the polarity of (+/-) of PIT of SWASHMIX is set, and it returns it to 1SERVO again once.

In (+) setting of SWASHMIX PIT, SWASH is moved in the direction of down by throttle UP.
It is moved in the opposite direction in (-) setting.

Do not forget to return it to the setting of 1SERVO.

Genius CP 6 axis beginner setup guide by livonia bob

I have removed the setup guide.
Due to Bob posting a private email I sent him and his comments about me, I will no longer work with him again.

Devo 7 fixed manual

I have started marking up the Walkera Devo 7 manual with comments to make it clearer for newbies on how to operate, program and just get their head around this vaguely written manual. I will be updating these files periodically as there appear to be many errors in the manual.

Maybe Tom Z can link my manual in the first post. I will be updating it as I gain more experience and suggestions too.

I have also started a menu tree of the Devo 7 which makes it easier to see where all the settings are and what the overall layout is. Additionally, I am marking up the Genius CP manual.

These are all located at

Re: Setup for the Walkera Ladybird QR Series - RX2634H-D Receiver - Devo 7 Transmitte


First off, like some others, I would like to deeply thank you for your guide(s). They are especially useful to a rank newbie like myself. I have a QR Ladybird and Devo 7 already on order and have printed out your number 21 guide. My question is, is it at all preferable to set up for the Ladybird in the Helli mode or the Aero mode? Sort of does it fly better or is it more versatile in one way as opposed to the other.

Hi!! First of all, thank you Tom Z for this guide! I found it very helpful

I just bought a Genius CP and I'm having some problems to do 3D. When I turn the heli upside down, the motor lose power and the heli falls slowly. The change of pitch loads the motor and it cant recovery again. What do you recomend me to do??
Im using this configuration in my DEVO 6, and the "servo extent" know in the RX is pointing at 3 o'clock.

Thank you very much!!
