This is due to the fact that there is no 'standard' for toggle.bmp other than the null (or blank) icon which MUST be the first.


Thanks.

This means we would have to post a model just for the Devo 10 if we wanted the
switch icons (switch letters) to work correctly.

Tom has created an excellent file here but due to lack of swithces in Devo6 some of them are conflicted.

I have recreated the file for DEVO 6 Users.

This is the V2.1.1 File.
V3 File to follow

Devo6
Throttle Hold is now Gear Pos 0. So its a nice easy flick if it goes wrong.

Aile D/R & Ele D/R are just DR 1 switch rather then two.
Note: If you want two switches, MIX 0, 1, 2 is available if you wish to change.

Hope this is ok Tom.

Cheers.

EDIT: - File has not uploaded. Will email to you tonight when home from work Tom.

This model is for the Devo 6S only.


1. No negative pitch for normal mode so you don’t slam the heli down if you pull the stick down to fast.
Don’t fly outside in wind in normal mode. You won’t be able to pull the heli down if the wind takes the heli.
If you fly outside in wind use ST- 1 or ST- 2 which have full pitch curves which can pull the heli down in wind.

2. Low Pitch Travel Adjustment to make the heli more tame.
Pitch Travel Adjustment = 55% for high and low.

3. Low dual rates and positive expo to tame the heli down.

4. 7 Point Throttle and Pitch Curves.

5. TX Power=100mW

6. Channels=7

7. Protocol=DEVO

8. No Fixed ID

9. Mode 2

10. FMOD switch - for stunt modes

11. DR switch - for aile & ele dual rates

12. Gear switch - for throttle hold

13. MIX switch - is free to use for what you want


Download the model to match which deviation firmware version you have in your transmitter.


Model 9 is for deviation firmware v3



Throttle Curve

Normal Mode: Linear Curve

ST- 1: V Shaped Throttle Curve

ST- 2: 100% Flat Across


Throttle Hold is active on Gear switch.




Pitch Curve

Normal Mode: No negative pitch. Zero degrees pitch at mid stick.

ST- 1: Full +/- 3D pitch curve. Zero degrees pitch at mid stick.

ST- 2: Full +/- 3D pitch curve. Zero degrees pitch at mid stick.


Gyro gain is set to 64% for Normal and Stunt modes. This value is equal to the Walkera firmware value of 82% gyro gain.



DR/EXPO

Adjust D/R and EXPO to your personal needs/preference.

I have these settings included in the model file.

If the tail is too touchy for you add some positive expo.
Try +20%. EX: RUDD D/R = 100% EXP +20%


Switch Position

0- ELEV D/R = 50% EXP +30%

0- AILE D/R = 50% EXP +30%

0- RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN


Switch Position

1- ELEV D/R = 70% EXP +30%

1- AILE D/R = 70% EXP +30%

1- RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN



Thanks JJ1984 for testing the model for me on on your Devo 6S and taking the time to customize it for us.



Download the Configuration Settings File.

Right click the "model.ini " and select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" depending if you are using IE or Firefox.

Install the configuration settings file into your models folder (See my How to video below).

This will over-right the current file so make sure that model slot doesn’t
have a model being used in it. If it does rename the configuration settings file
to another number that you have free.

Example: The file you downloaded is named model5 so change the “5" to another slot
number that you don’t have a model setup for. If you have model slot 6 open rename the file to model6

Will the Devo10 version work for the 7E?

Mostly. Because the Devo10 has more switches you should look into the config to figure out theur use and if you can use other switches.

Hi,

i have the model7.ini file loaded to my Devo 7e with the latest nightly build.

I understand that i have only 2 toggles and i have to disable some settings.

Throttle hold is toggle hold1 now. Dual rate is toggle fmod1 now.

no negative pitch. i have disabled the negative pitch hopefully.

But for what is the channel 7? Do i need it to fly without negative pitch?

Thanks in advance.

Uwe

CH7 is set fixed to +64%. It is used to control the gyro gain setting and has nothing to do with negative pitch.

Hi Tom

Herewith updates of your models for V4.01

Model 15 is your model but changed to how I fly my Super CP and V120D02.
I swapped the DR settings to use both DR switches and add TH on RD DR1.
EVEL DR1 and AIL DR 1 is the low rates for these two channels respectively and I put the variable Tail Gyro gain on the MIX switch rather than on the FMOD switch.

I also simplified the Throttle and Pitch curve settings, although they have the same curves.

I also added the Telemetry available from these Models - but without alarm values.

Model 16 is your model for the Deviation 4.01, so it should be familiar to you.

EDIT 17h00 GMT - updated the two models

Hi,

The models work good in the V4 Devo 8 emulator, thanks!
For the RUDD D/R icon there is an green "Tr" icon. Should this be an "R" icon?

When I imported a V3 model into V4 there was an icon problem like before in the posts above. I see this is also an issue when importing the V3 models to V4.

I may have a different Icon file
I use the Green Tr for no Throttle hold/ready to fly and a RED TH for TH active

OK. I assigned an icon for the RUDD D/R for Model 16 you posted.
It looks like the model is now ready to use for the Devo 8/8S for V4 firmware.
This would be for Walkera CP Helicopters - Beginner Settings - Devo 8/8S.
I will add it to my list with full details of the settings.
If you want to check the RUDD D/R icon for me I assigned that would be good.
If the model is ready to post then I can make models for Beginner Settings and Standard settings for Walkera and Blade Helicopters and Quads using this model and changing the settings needed.
Then I need change/assign the icons as needed for the Devo 10 and Devo 12S models imported from V3 assuming they also import correctly and only the icons need to be corrected.

Thanks!

Sorry Tom, I cannot etst anymore. I just packed all my Devo stuff for the long trip back home tomorrow.

OK no problem. It was easy to change the icons.
Both of us confirm the import from V3 to V4 was correct (minus some icon's). And all I did was change one icon in the model you posted for me.

When I get some time I will make some models using this model (post #18012) as my template and change the settings needed for each helicopter and quad.

Thanks for your help!
