Default Blade mCPX - DX6i/DX7/DX8 TX Settings for Beginner/Normal/3D

The mCPX V1 and mCPX V2 transmitter settings are both the same except I saw some different terms being used on the DX7 V1 setup compared to the DX7 V2 setup. Same thing for the DX8 transmitter plus the V2 setup has F-Mode Setup where the DX8 transmitter V1 doesn't. Binding instructions are different for the mCPX V1 and mCPX V2 for Computer Radios.
Due to all this I have made two sepearte Blade mCPX setup guides.

Set your swash to zero degrees pitch at mid stick.




Level the swash, set zero pitch and throws the correct way (my way)

Taming the mCP

Set your pitch curve so that zero pitch is when the stick is all the way down (50-INH-75-INH-100), not half way like the manual suggests; this will make the collective less sensitive and slightly reduces the head speed. You'll need to reset this to the values in the manual and get used to hovering at 75% throttle before you think about aerobatics, but it's OK to 'cheat' a little to begin with.
Set your low rates to 50% instead of the 70% recommended. Leave the expo at 30%. Don't even think about using high rates!

1.3 Transmitter and Receiver Binding

If you purchased an RTF model, the transmitter is bound to the model at the factory.
To bind or re-bind your mCP X to your chosen transmitter, please follow the directions below:
Binding is the process of programming the receiver of the control unit to recognize the GUID (Globally Unique
Identifier) code of a single specific transmitter. You need to ‘bind’ your chosen Spektrum™ or JR® DSM®
technology equipped aircraft transmitter to the receiver for proper operation.
NOTICE: Use the Non-Computer Radio binding instructions if you are using a DX4e or DX5e transmitter
with the mCP X BNF.

Binding Procedure for Computer Radios:
1. Disconnect the flight battery from the helicopter.
2. Power off the transmitter and move all switches to the 0 position.
3. Connect the flight battery in the helicopter. The 3-in-1 control unit LED flashes after 5 seconds.
4. Put the transmitter in bind mode while powering on the transmitter.
5. Release the bind button after 2-3 seconds. The helicopter is bound when the blue LED on the
3-in-1 control unit is solid.
6. Disconnect the flight battery and power the transmitter off.

Note: The throttle will not arm if the transmitter’s throttle control is not put at the lowest position and the stunt
mode switch is not in the 0 position.
If you encounter problems, obey binding instructions and refer to the troubleshooting guide for other
instructions. If needed, contact the appropriate Horizon Product Support office.
For a list of compatible DSM transmitters, please visit www.bindnfly.com.

Binding Procedure for Non-Computer Radio (DX4e, DX5e)
1. Disconnect the flight battery from the helicopter.
2. Power off the transmitter and move all switches to the 0 position.
3. Connect the flight battery in the helicopter. The 3-in-1 Control unit LED flashes after 5 seconds.
4. Push in on the trainer switch or button while powering on the transmitter.
5. Move the rudder control stick to full left after the transmitter LED lights flash twice.
6. Release the trainer switch button. Continue to hold the rudder control stick to full left until the blue
LED on the 3-in-1 control unit is solid.
7. Release the rudder control stick.
8. Push in on the trainer switch button. The blue LED on the 3-in-1 control unit flashes to confirm the
helicopter is in non-computer mode.
9. Disconnect the flight battery and power the transmitter off.

Note: If the swashplate moves up and down when the trainer switch is moved, the helicopter is in computer
transmitter mode; repeat binding procedure.

HH now says for binding computor radios to hold the rudder over full right before even powering the TX in bind mode. They decided the time frame was to narrow to perform the proceedure the way they originally listed

I have a DX7S ... should I be using the DX7, DX7SE or the DX8 configuration? I was reading around and I think it might be the DX8 option?

Thank you in advance

I have a DX10t and an mCPX v2.

Should I be using the DX8 configuration?

Thank you in advance

Great Info CX2Pilot! Very informative especially for the beginner.

I found a cool video on how to modify the DX6i Throttle Hold switch that will really help beginners too. http://www.indoorhelli.com/Videos/tabid/88/Default.aspx It’s a quick mod and makes it easy to flip the switch.

Great thread, thanks for the info.

One question, with DX6i and 70% pitch up and down, my servos do not have enough travel to use 100% rates on cyclic (with max cyclic and pitch, the servos jam at the ends). Is this normal, and if so, won't those settings potentially damage the servos? Thanks.

Just curious... Just got my mCPx2 and haven't set it up yet. I've read they come from the factory with too much neg pitch and there is discussion on the first thing to do is to turn the swash links 2 or 3 full turns ccw (depending who posted). Any thoughts/experience with this? A little easier to judge with my 450

The first thing to do is level the swash, then check for zero pitch at mid-stick and make it so if it isn't. If you start by making changes without checking, your next move may be un-making those changes.

(Guess how I figured that out.)

Thanks, should have come back sooner and updated. Mine (and a buddy's) came out of the box with dead level swashes and dead zero pitch at mid-stick. Maybe Blade is paying attention now? As well I read where many had to take the 3-4 ccw twists on servo links due to too much neg pitch. Not in our case. In fact the first 3-4 battery packs all I did was bump the Expo in normal mode from 30-35 which tamed it down a lot just to get used to it.Within a dozen or less packs I'm back at 30. Fly's great!

To that particular issue, yes. I got my [first] mCPX in late May and read the threads here.

When I checked the swash the left side was too short by two full turns. I then twisted all three linkages three full turns because that was the advice, but when I checked for zero pitch it was way off. On a hunch I twisted all three linkages three full turns the other way, and when I checked again the pitch was as close to zero as possible.

A good general rule is to check first then adjust, no matter what others' experiences suggest.

Hello everyone. Noob here. Looking to get this heli soon.

I few questions,

Can the beginner setting be used on a sim? And, what does it mean when you guys say to, "level the swash" and how do you do it?

I don't have a DX8 so I can't make video settings for it like I did for the DX6I and DX7 which I own both.





Set your swash to zero degrees pitch at mid stick.

Level the swash, set zero pitch and throws the correct way (my way)

Ive had my Mcpx v2 / Dx6i for some weeks now and i looked here to double check everything was correct. I have a question though...

Where it says "Adjust List" --> "D/R & Expo" on this forum , i look at my DX6i in there and i see the AILE - 0 - %70 - %30 , ELEV - 0 - %70 - %30 , RUDD %100 INH but thats the only 3 things on the list. On this post it shows 3 more below where the only changed is the 0 is a 1. Where is that? How come my Dx6i only shows the first 3 options?

Also... Are these the TONED DOWN settings for a new MCPX flyer or are these true to the helicopter and nothing is toned down.
