Default DX8e Setup with 230sv2

I haven't been able to find any setup information on the DX8e for the Blade 230sv2. I only see information for DX8. Any help for a setup link for this transmitter would be appreciated. Thanks

You can use the SPM-file for the DX8 G2, it works well

https://spektrumrc.com/Products/Defa...5#prod_manuals

go to:
- Manuals and support
- Download DX8G2 setups
- 230S V2

keep in mind, the throttle cut has been reversed in the original spm file, you can change that very easily (I have written here somewhere a How to..., will try to find it for you)

Thank you very much for your prompt reply. Greatly appreciated. It appears to work just fine.. Would you leave the pitch curves as is or modify them for Flight mode 1 and 2 ??

I used that SPM for the 230 V2, and found that the Trims were disabled. Has anyone else seen that? I have the DX8 G2 transmitter also.


I had to go thru some menus in the system setup, and found were trims could be 0 - 9, so set them to midway (5) like in the Osprey V22.


Thanks. (my first post on Helifreak)

correct, trims are disabled. one important heli lesson: do not ever use trim on a FBL heli

if you do it anyway, it can mess up the data the FBL is reading... resulting in a crash
