MQX Quad Blade Setup




Blade MQX with provided MLP4DSM Remote Control Transmitter

 

Binding Procedure for MLP4DSM -

1. Disconnect the flight battery from the Quad-Copter

2. Center all trims on transmitter.

3. Power off the transmitter and move the throttle stick to the down/off position.

4. Connect the flight battery in the Quad-Copter. The blue LED on the 4-in-1 control unit flashers after 5 seconds.

5. Push in and hold down the left stick while powering on the the transmitter (you will hear a "click'.

6. Release the left stick. The transmitter will beep and the power LED will blink.

7. The Quad-Copter is bound when the LED on the 4-in-1 control unit is solid blue (not blinking).

8. For shut down; disconnect the flight battery and power the transmitter off.

 

Binding for "X" and "+" Flight Configurations.

 

"X" Flight Configuration

Bind your MQX according to the instructions given above. Immediately after entering Bind Mode, move the rudder stick fully to the left and hold it there until the binding process is complete. This will set the 4-in-1 control unit's flight mode to "X" configuration. You may fin "X" configuration to be slightly more responsive in flight due to the orientation of the rotars.

 

Normal Start-up after unit has beem bound

Turn on transmitter first and then connect the flight battery

 

Tip:

To determine the front of your Quad-Copter during flight, the white-colored propellers are the front.

 

Transmitter Dual Rates

1. when powered on, this transmitter is automaticall in high-rate mode

2.Change modes by pressing and releasing the right control stick while the transmitter is powered on.

3. Low-rate mode is shown by the transmitter's LED blinking continuously. In this mode, the controls cannot reach their maximum values. This mode is typically preferred by pilots looking smoother/easier control response during first time use.

4. Hig-rate mode is shown by the transmitter's LED glowing solid red. In this mode the controls can reach their maximum values. This mode is typically preferred by experienced pilots who are ready for fast florward flight and aerobatic maneuvers (loops, rolls, etc.)

 

Helicopter MQX setup for the DX6i

Switch on right front “AIL D/R” controls speed, 0=low 55% speed, 1=high 100%, 35% expo on rudder expo.

 

Left stick up-down is prop speed, left-right horiz is the tail spin/yaw

 

Right stick up-down is forward/backward, left-right is roll left and right

 

Switch “Throttle cut” the Timer count up - press once to turn on - press again to pause - press and hold for 3 seconds to reset or cycle the power.

 

Binding -
Start with power off on the DX-6i and the MCX2. Make sure all switches on the DX-6i are in forward safe position except the “speed switch” which should be positioned to minium. Power up the MCX2 by plugging in the fresh battery. Next on the DX6i hold the “Trainer switch” forward and turn the “power switch” on, holding both switches for about 10 seconds until the copter red led light turns on. Release both switches and the plane should be ready to fly.

First Flight
4-in-1 Control Unit Function
The unique Control Unit installed in your mQX is a lightweight combination of main motor electronic speed controls
(ESCs),mixers, gyros and a DSM2 receiver.The 4-in-1 unit is also equippedwith a blue status indicator LED.
• Before each flight,ALWAYS power on the transmitter before connecting the flight battery to the 4-in-1 unit.
After each flight, disconnect the flight battery from the 4-in-1 unit before powering off the transmitter.
Connecting the flight battery before powering on the transmitter can start the binding process. Please see the
Transmitter and Receiver Binding section of this manual for more information.
• The 4-in-1 unitwill arm the motorswhen the throttle stick is in the lowest possible position and the throttle
trim is at the middle or a lower than middle position (the middle position is indicated by a longer than usual
beep/tone). If this is the first test flight, or a test flight following repairs, also center the rudder, aileron and
elevator trims.
• With the transmitter turned on and the transmitter LED glowing solid RED, it is safe to connect the flight battery to the 4-in-1 unit.
• Connect the flight battery to the 4-in-1 unit.
• After the flight battery is connected, the 4-in-1 unit status LED should glowsolid BLUEwithin a fewseconds.
DO NOT move, sway or pretend to fly the Quad-Copter after connecting the flight battery.This movement can
stop unit initialization and gyroscope calibration. If the Quad-Copter is moved before the 4-in-1 unit status
LED glows solid BLUE, disconnect then connect the flight battery to the 4-in-1 unit.
• When the 4-in-1 unit status LED glows solid BLUE, the control unit is initialized and ready for flight.
• As long as you set the throttle stick and trim to the correct positions during the initialization process, the ESC
or motorswill be armed. Use caution because after arming, propellerswill turn at throttle stick input.
• Increase the throttle until the model is approximately 2 ft. (600mm) off the ground in a low-level hover and
concentrate on balancing the throttle stick’s position so that the mQX holds a steady hover altitude. In some
cases, you may need to make a fewshort “hops” to an altitude of just a fewinches until you become familiar
with the control inputs and trim settings required to maintain a steady hover and altitude.
The mQX requires minor throttle adjustments to maintain its altitude in hover. Remember to keep these throttle
adjustments as minimal as possible as large adjustments could result in a loss of control and/or a possible crash.
• While attempting to establish a low-level hover, you can also check to see if any trim adjustments are
required to help keep the mQX from constantly drifting in various directions. If you find that it constantly drifts
without any directional control input, land the model before making any adjustments to the trim settings.Additional details regarding the location and function of the trim buttons are in the “Understanding the Primary
Flight Controls” section of this manual.
- If the nose of the mQX rotates to the left or right, adjust the rudder trim.
- If the mQX continually drifts forward or backward, adjust the elevator trim.
- If the mQX continually drifts to the left or right, adjust the aileron trim.
