Variations indeed, here's mine straight out of the box.
I'm still very new to the hobby.
May someone elaborate how the two above setting would differ regarding flying.
I still need to set up my New V120D02S as it drifts to the right, when trying to take off slowly.

It just has a much smoother feel than the 3 axis gyro.

However, I have the problem with excessive compensation with my Master CP whereas others are happy with theirs. It seems there is a lot of variation between receivers as they leave the factory. Here is a picture of my pot settings on the 6 axis V120D02S.
I'm thinking about getting a V120D02S. I notice in the image that there is no rudder gain pot, only extent. Can any of you folks explain this to me. Is gain adjustment no longer needed on the tail ?

If you heli drifts, it suggests that the the ail-elev gyro gain is not enough. I suggest that you adjust your left pot up to the position shown in my picture. If your heli starts pitching up and down at a low frequenc, then you should lower the gain setting.

The tail gyro gain is adjusted through a channel on the transmitter. This has been the case for some time with most tail gyros.

Thanks I will try it out. As said I'm still a new and need to do a lot of reading how to set up everything properly incl. how to level the swash etc. Another thing I need to figure out is how to adjust the settings for a more scale like take off as at the moment it jumps some 2 foot into the air immediately from the ground.

OK that makes sense, thanks. That's how I do it on my 450's. I don't have a CP Walkera and obviously I did not think that through. I appreciate the reply.

Happy Flying !!!

if it drifts it could also be mechanical setup....make sure the swash is level when you have your throttle at 50%...also when you do this make sure the throttle and pitch curve are linear.

Hi Rafa,

I just bought the BNF V120D02S V2 (Green canopy).
I will be doing a full review on it all stock then with the Turbo Ace 915 BL
15,000kv motor using a 14T pinion and the and XP-12A-2 (VER 2) High Speed ESC.
The motor has extreme power!
I have it on my 4G6 w/RX2610V2 now and will be putting it on the V120D02S V2.
Then I will put my HP08-2 back on my 4G6.

Did you get a slipper clutch for it? I would like to know if it will handle this motor..

V120D02S V2 TX Settings


My V120D02S V2 will be here tomorrow.
Can somebody with one tell me what setup guide I have will work for it?
I have the setup guide posted for it with the settings from the owner’s manual.
I was thinking I can use the Mini CP setup. The Master CP uses the Mini CP settings as a starting point
so I was thinking the V120D02S V2 can use them also.

Tom, the same settings will work for the V120D02S, Mini CP and Master CP.

Hi Tom,

Glad to hear it. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts--seems like folks either love or hate this 6 axis thing. I'm still having fun with it. Let us know when the review is ready!

Hi Rafa,

I would have had the review posted today but the ESC burned out only after two battery packs!
So now I am waiting for a new ESC that is on the way to me.
I want to test the heli 100% stock out of the box first so I don't want to use another model ESC which I have many of them
including the XP-7A-2 and XP-12A-2.
Once I get the stock ESC I will test flight times, thrust, and headspeed.
Then install my TA915 and XP-12A-2 (VER 2) and do the same tests then post the review.

Max/Min Pitch for Sports flying and 3D


Wondering what is ideal Max/Min pitch for sports flying on v120 size heli? Same for 3D? I am reconfiguring my pitch settings and right now its +10/-10 in Idle-up. I don't plan to 3D yet, but would like to learn sports flying such as flips, rolls and inverts.
