Default Receiver wiring for Blade 230 S

Hi all...

I had to do a complete rebuild on my 230 S, and typical newbie mistake... I didn't record the wiring on the receiver. I've tried the typical wiring diagrams I've seen, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Can anybody hook me up with a diagram?

Thank you!

1: esc
2: left rear servo
3: left front servo
4: yellow lead from esc (rudder)
5: right servo
6: nothing

First space is for bind plug

Orientation is looking back to front
space-1-2-3-4-5-6

Pretty sure what you have listed is incorrect.

On mine it works out to be:

1: esc
2: right rear servo
3: left front servo
4: yellow lead from esc (rudder)
5: left rear servo
6: nothing

This is a perspective from looking at the back of the heli.
All neg wires are on the bottom.
All plugs go into the back(make sure the rx isn't in backwards).
Where the antenna comes out is more towards the bottom(don't put the RX in upside down).
first slot from left is bind
second slot esc
third slot right servo
4th slot front servo
5th slot tail(single signal wire)
6th slot left servo

Yep, so same as my list. For completeness:

Looking at the receiver from the rear, going from left to right.

1: Bind Plug
2: ESC
3: Rear Servo (Right)
4: Front Servo
5: Yellow Lead From ESC (i.e., rudder)
6: Rear Servo (Left)
7: Empty

Servo plugs are in bold.

Hi Nick,

I upgraded my Blade 230S to a Microheli frame and power package yesterday and am having some issues.

I'm not sure if the wiring is different on mine or if I did something incorrect but its not responding correctly. First thing I noticed is the main rotor blade pitch is moving the opposite.

I'm new to this so I may not be using the correct terminology, but I do completely understand aerodynamics. When in collective pitch mode, and the left stick pushed forward, the blade pitch rotates to push the helicopter in to the ground.

Any thoughts?

Assuming you haven't swapped anything on the TX (don't BTW)

If it's just the pitch that's reversed, It sounds as though you've flipped your blade grips


So a couple of tests
With Throttle Hold On, IU/Advanced mode

Perform the Control Tests as per the manual page 10

Assuming everything works as per this test, (if not I would start to look at servo plug locations)

If everything else was correct other than the pitch - swash should move DOWN to INCREASE pitch - then you need to check your grips

They should look like this image - see how the grip arm points anti clock wise and works on the back edge of the blade

Is there any way you can post some pictures of the head and blade grips?

Here is a picture of my 230s.

Strangest thing. I double/triple checked all of my servo connections and did a rebind of my DX8. And, yes, my grips are correct; exactly the same as in your picture and Chris's picture.



The right stick, elevator, moves the swash plate up and down; down to increase pitch and up to decrease pitch. The left stick, throttle, pitches the blades forward and backwards. Its as those two functions/stocks have been swapped.

How is that even possible? I'm not even sure how to fix that?

I does sound as though your servo plugs have been swapped

Try this
Throttle hold, IU mode
Just do the aileron stick, no elevator

Only the back 2 servos should move......
(looking from the back of the heli, moving the aileron left should drop the swash on the left, up on the right and not move at the front)

If only the back 2 move, try swapping the plugs over for those rear 2 servos

If the front and one of the back move, you've got one aileron and the elevator servos mixed up

+1...

bobmixon

I had this exact same problem when I first built mine. I thought I had the wiring correct but it wasn't.

Like toys2cars2toys said the plugs are not in the right locations. His info should get you going once you find the two plugs that are reversed.

Don't use a pic. Go by the posted text above. Tells you exactly which servo gets plugged and where.

Looks like Chris is competing for the "Least stock parts" 230S award.

Nope, still have the stock main gear and electronics.Oh,Running the 320 motor as well.

Microheli sends me this stuff to test out. That way if customers have problems I'll be able to help them out in anyway I can.

Yep, that worked! And I see exactly what I did. I'm looking at the back, at the top servo and thinking that's the left rear servo. Duh!

Thank you everyone!

Great news, there aren't many that haven't done this, I know I've struggled with it in the past

Exactly like Nick has it written, I've done a couple recent frame replacement and was really careful about marking the orientations of the receiver cabling. You really don't want to mess that up.
