Align T-Rex 150 DFC - Ultra Beginner Settings

This model is different than my Beginner Settings model posted on this web site. It is even tamer and will hover at about 1 line above the half stick throttle mark. I made this model for the beginner who is flying a CP helicopter for the first time. This model is made just to hover and fly around.

  • 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- 2 which has negative pitch which can pull the heli down in wind.

  • Very Low Pitch to make the heli more tame. * Hover at about 1 line above the half stick throttle mark. This is helpful for beginners to learn on. * Low Dual Rates and Expo to tame the heli down.

[li]Throttle Hold on the RUDD D/R switch.

Zero Degree Pitch when throttle hold is on.

This will help minimize damage in a crash as the swash and blades will be at mid stick zero degrees pitch. This will also help prevent a boom strike.[/li]

  • 7 Point Throttle and Pitch Curves. * TX Power=100mW * Channels=7 * Protocol=DSMX * No Fixed ID * Stick Mode 2

If you need Stick Mode 1, 3, or 4 load the model into your transmitter then change the Stick Mode in the transmitter settings.

EDIT: 2/19/2014

This model has been updated. The pitch was raised as it wasn't hovering at mid stick and needed more than half throttle to hover.

Model 40 is for deviation firmware v4 and the DEVO 6/6S/8/8S/10/12/12S.

* This model will not work for deviation firmware v2.1 or v3.

Set your ESC Li-po Cell Count setting to “AUTO”. Default setting is 2 CELL.

ESC Settings

Functions

6. Li-Po Cell Count - Make sure to set this to “Auto”.

Do not use the “2S” setting. You will have an extreme power/headspeed loss using the default “2S” setting.

Flight Mode

Normal: No negative pitch at low stick. Hover at about 1 line above the half stick throttle mark.

ST-1: Same as Normal Mode.

ST-2: -3* negative pitch so you can fly in wind if you want to. It will hover about 1 line above the half stick throttle mark.

You can also use this mode to get use to having negative pitch at low stick.

I left out full +/- Stunt modes as a beginner will not use them. Also there is no chance of accidentally selecting full +/- pitch.

Throttle Curve

Normal: Linear Curve

ST-1: Linear Curve

ST-2: Linear Curve

Throttle Hold is active on RUDD D/R switch

Pitch Curve

Normal: No negative pitch. Helicopter will hover about 1 line above the half stick throttle mark.

ST-1: Same as Normal Mode.

ST-2: -2* negative pitch. Helicopter will hover about 1 line above half the stick throttle mark.

Gyro Gain - These are the values I used then converted them to the deviation values.

Mix Switch

Pos 0: 65%

Pos 1: 70%

Pos 2: 75%

DR/EXPO - ELEV, AILE, RUDD are all the the AILE switch for quick and easy changing in hover or flight.

Adjust D/R and EXPO to your personal preference.

Don't try to flip or 3D with these settings.

Switch Position - This setting is for hovering and slow forward flight only.

0- ELEV D/R = 30% EXP -10%

0- AILE D/R = 30% EXP -10%

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP +20%

Switch Position

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

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

RUDD D/R = 100% EXP LIN

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
