Thanks for the info! Helps a lot!

Had my maiden flight on the Nano.

This is my first CP helicopter, so the experience was rather interesting. My previous experience is with V911's and a little bit of quadcopter experience.

I was able to get the Nano off the ground without the immediate crash on takeoff and was able to hover a bit, before it would start to get away from me. It's a bit more sensitive to the wind, and appears to have less active stabilization than the V911's. You can have a bit more positive response to wind effects. The flip side is that recovery to those effects can get you into a PIO (pilot induced oscillation) rather quickly.

With the V911's I usually don't have any problems with orientation, (until it gets to far away to see!), with this little Nano things just happen a bit faster and I find that I can lose that orientation a bit quicker.

I am hope that I can get up to "speed" relatively quickly.

Thanks again for the guide.

Thanks for the guide above just found.

I stumbled on rebinding a Nano as the Blade Instructions for computer radios (and I was using a DX7) states very clearly to press Bind THEN hold rudder right AFTER releasing the Bind Button. This did not work!!

So, Press the bind button on rear, hold right rudder, THEN switch on Tx, and it instantly binds. I won't say how long I'd tried to follow the manual........

to Blade, to here!!

Hi Arch \ guys,
I got my DX6 and the nano cps.
I configured the TX as you recommended and binded it as well.
The heli seems to behave like it has a flybar, regardless of the flight mode and expo.
Someone here wrote that the panic button might be on.
Do you know how can i configure a panic button in the DX6?
How can i disable the panic mode?
Thanks!

Another question, I see in the manual that it says frame rate is supposed to be 11ms, but when i bind it to the heli it says 22ms, why is that? is that also ok?

Nano CPS uses channel 5 (GEAR) to activate SAFE mode.

CH5:
-100 : Stability
-60: Stability + PANIC
0 : Agility
+40: Agility + PANIC
+100: 3D Mode
+140: 3D Mode + PANIC

I think in the printing instruction for the DX6 setup for the Nano CPS; Channel Assignment - Channel Input - 5 Gear should be "Switch B" (*NOT* Gear). This would make it the same setting as DX7 (new), DX9, DX18.

With the published setup, a DX6 and nano CPS the gear switch should change the agility (which means if your gear switch was down, you would always have been in stability mode and limited bank angle).

Does not matter 11ms vs 22ms. 11ms will make it try bind on the best possible.

Default Another setting for newbies

Specifically for the Nano which has a "stability" mode in Standard, you can actually set Arch's proposed dumbing down setting, D/R down to 40-50 %, in IDLE UP 1 instead.
This would give you a " normal" setting with D/R at 100% and, in IDLE UP an indoors setting which gives you AGILITY ie full movement of the servos available AND you still will have available the IDLE UP 2 with all the power you might be looking for. I am assuming the Nano is going to be a training helicopter of some sorts.
It works nicely!

Thanks Arch, i assigned channel 5 to switch c, which is a 2 position switch, i guess a 3 position makes more sense since the cps has 3 flight modes. The panic is an addition to all these 3. I tried to do it by mixing but not sure i got it as you suggested. Will check that.

If you have 3 way switch for NORMAL, IDLE UP 1 and IDLE UP 2 you can create 3 specific flight profiles.
For the NANO CPS the NORMAL mode is typically used to get the heli off the ground and / or fly indoors at sedated ( low) cyclic settings, then you switch to IDLE up for more head speed and THROW settings that allow for inverted flight etc
So you can create a SECOND INDOOR profile BUT with complete positive and negative pitch ( so you can fly inverted) an will LOW Cyclic D/R and good EXPO. For a newbee, that might give you some more options when you practice with the NANO.

I configured DR and FM seperately. Each one has a 3 position switch.
And a seperate 2 pos switch for the SAFE mode.
When the safe is on, it changes all the DR as well cause i guess it is "stability" mode in the nano itself, in addition to the transmitter DR configuration, so the heli is very lazy with DR 50%, unlike when the safe is disabled.

Hello Dudes !

Thanks for this post, help me a lot !

I still have some problems with safe modes (Nano CPS and DX6 V2).

I followed the manual in order to have the good settings, but not I'm still not able to fly in stability mode...

So in the manual, modes are changing gaz and pitch curves, but has no effect for stabilization...

I was able to set the panic button with the mixing.

So when I press the panic button the LED become blue, and Heli is stabilizing himself.

But I think in first mode, heli should also be with the blue LED and stabilizer, is this right ?

Which setting is doing the stabilization and blue LED in mode 1 ?

Thanks in advance to help a real newbie.

(sorry for my english )

CÚdric from Switerland :-)

When flying in stability mode it is blue same as when you push the panic button in stunt mode it goes blue. Stunt mode flies red.

Sorry can't help with the dx6 v2 as I use the dx8

Hope you get it sorted
