Totally lost with programming DX7s

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Maybe I should just have purchased a RTF quad. I built a DJI f450 quad and purchased a Spectum DX7s, thinking that if I built it myself I would learn how they work and be able to program my tx. I have read that it's not that hard. Well here I am about a week later and still scratching my head. I was able to DL someone else's file and load it on my DX. But I would like to customize the settings and learn what switches what and how they work and when to use them. Is there a site that has basic information on how to program these tx's?

Thanks for any help or advise.

Re: Totally lost with programming DX7s

I do not see why it would be hard at all. DJI makes it ultra simple. You just use the sticks in basic mode, no mixes, neatly centred no expo or rates. Then you program a switch or two for the flight modes you want to command the Naza to have. I like to put a master gain on a pot too for initial flights so I can tune it while flying. Do the DJI PC Tool tuning, which is straight forward. I could set up a DJI quad with a $25 6ch radio in 20 min, but I have done it with Turnigy9x, Taranis, a DX6i and a DX8 before. Though a Taranis is easier to achieve switch programming for these kinds of projects than a DX7 or DX8.
