RC setup

Before connecting and calibrating the RC, make sure that:

  • There is no battery connected to the drone.
  • The propellers are not mounted.

Connecting the RC transmitter

  1. In QGroundControl software, go the Vehicle Setup panel and choose the Radio menu.
  2. Power on the transmitter by sliding the POWER slider up.
  3. Make sure the transmitter-receiver link is working.

    The transmitter LCD screen should display the connection:

    The LED on the receiver should glow steadily. Read the radio troubleshooting article if the link does not work.

Transmitter calibration

  3. Press OK in QGroundControl.

  4. Place the left stick (throttle) in the bottom position and press Next.

  5. Place the sticks in positions requested by QGroundControl.
  6. When you get the "Move all transmitter switches and/or dials back and forth to their extreme positions" instruction, move all switches and dials to their extreme positions.
