Configuration

In these pages are the different configuration parameters of the Mikrokopter Tool.

A general description of controllers, definitions and concepts can be found in the wiki at Summary Explanations.

Each side can be opened by clicking on the tabs below to get more information from the configuration dialog:

In a total of five sets of parameters different settings can be stored in the Kopter. These can be accessed through the sticks after turning on the Kopter and the initialization.

Each setting can be named under Name of configuration with a representative name. This is useful for example for different payloads, sporty flying or camera-flight etc. 

If a setting is completed or altered it must be saved under it's number in the MikroKoper with the function WRITE . 

The MikroKopter acknowledged this with a appropriate number of short beeps. 

 Each set must be saved individually! 

With Read the respective parameter set can be read out of the Kopter. 

With Save and Load each set can be saved and loaded from the PC. The parameter sets can be viewed with a text editor and printed, too. 

Thus, it is for example possible to compare the parameters of the 5 different settings on the airport without a laptop while flying.

This Settings are:
  • Setting 1 = Fast (Sporting flight attitude)

  • Setting 2 = Normal (Average flight attitude)

  • Setting 3 = Easy (Basic flight attitude)

  • Setting 3 = Easy (Basic flight attitude)

  • Setting 3 = Easy (Basic flight attitude)

If you want to change the single settings back to default, klick on the red triangle http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=82230&g2_serialNumber=1.

Select the single Settings with the transmitter

  • Setting 1 = Throttle up / Yaw left + Roll left

  • Setting 2 = Throttle up / Yaw left + Nick up / Roll left

  • Setting 3 = Throttle up / Yaw left + Nick up

  • Setting 4 = Throttle up / Yaw left + Nick up / Roll right

  • Setting 5 = Throttle up / Yaw left + Roll right

Choosing the Function

Altitude control 

Checked if the air pressure sensor is mounted on the FlightCtrl so the height control should be used.

GPS

In that case the NaviCtrl and MKGPS is activated. Therefore GPS-functions like holding position (PositionHold), flying back to the start-point (ComingHome) and the fly-around with waypoints are possible.

Compass

Typically, this field is grayed out and active whenGPS is selected.
The MK3Mag alone can also be used with the FlightCtrl. This can be toggled while using the MK3Mag.
Is a MK3Mag installed on the NaviCtrl, the function should be turned on!

Fixed Orientation 

If this function is activated, the MikroKopter depends on the yaw and over again from the direction in which it has been at the start.

If the box is not checked, the Kopter is directed to the yaw and not to go back into the old direction, but remains in the yawed position.

Advanced Receiver Signal Validation 

A receiving failure is detected properly. Here will be checked if during a flight the numbers of channels are changing -> this should never happen in error-free operation.

When a fault is received in the first 500ms then an an old data packet is used (the penultimate) rather than the last - and after a minimum of time (approx. 1 sec) it switches to "bad reception".

Axis-(de-)coupling 

Here you can enable or disable the axis coupling. The axle coupling prevents the MikroKopter after a curve is flown to be loopsided.

Function is active when the yaw angle will be corrected internally. This function should always be activated!!

Rotation Rate Limiting 

Additional limitation of the rate of rotation. With this option the characteristic of the gyro is lifted at the ends.

This prevents rapid maneuver, which is regulated at a certain rate of rotation. Applies only to pitch and roll. (Only interesting for beginners)

Heading Hold (Nick/Roll)

In this mode and after a flight maneuver the MikroKopter is not going back into a horizontal position when the stick is in neutral position.

This setting, for example, are possible for most types of loops 

This function is for experienced pilots!


Attention

/!\ A change of the settings can help in fine-tuning of the copter. But not when flight problems are present at the Kopter!

With the default settings (except for a few exceptions), any MikroKopter can be flown easily!
If the Kopter (single with the FlightCtrl or with the FC and the GPS-Systems) doesn't fly correct with the Standard-Settings, so you can have e.g.
a problem with the mounting of the frame, an incorrectly laid cable or something else. So please check first the assembling of the whole Kopter.

/!\ All settings are preset. If changes are made to the settings, please take care, that you use valid data.
If you load a setting with wrong data, the Kopter can Malfunctionor crash!

/!\ Don't change a setting during flight (e.g. using Wi.232 etc.) - the MK can tilt and/or crash then! So always land first, then write settings and start again.
