Blade 130 X - Beginner Settings

* Re-posted 1/9/2014 - Accidentally deleted the other post while updating it.

  • 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.

  • Lower Pitch Travel Adjustment to make the heli more tame. * Low dual rates and positive expo to tame the heli down. * Throttle hold on the RUDD D/R switch. * 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.

Model 1 is for deviation firmware v4 and the DEVO 6/6S/8/8S/10/12/12S.

Model 1-2 has 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.

The swash does not move when TH is on.

If you want control of the swash in TH to help you land in a crash don’t use this model use Model 1 instead.

Model 22 is for deviation firmware v3 and the Devo 8/8S/12.

Model 33 is for deviation firmware v3 and the Devo 10.

Throttle Curve - These are the values I used then converted them to the deviation values and 7 point curves.

Normal: 0% 40% 60% 68% 75%

ST-1: 100% 90% 80% 90% 100%

ST-2: 100% Flat Across

Throttle Hold is active on RUDD D/R switch

Pitch Curve

Normal: 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.


Adjust D/R and EXPO to your personal preference.

Switch Position

0- ELEV D/R = 50% EXP +40%

0- AILE D/R = 50% EXP +40%


Switch Position

1- ELEV D/R = 70% EXP +40%

1- AILE D/R = 70% EXP +40%


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
