For "do it yourself" user. In the following steps we show you how to import the model memory in you transmitter and how to bind and set the receiver

How to import the setting in your MikroKopter is described here: Import setting (copter)

1.

Copy model memory + MK-voice file


http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/albums/intern/HoTT/Copy-PC-SD_MX-20.jpg?m=1499263674

  • In the first step we have to download the model memory, where we already have
    set all 12 channels for the transmitter and the needed "MK-voice" file for your MikroKopter
    -> Download

    After we downloaded it we have to unzip the folder and copy model memory and the
    voice file into the right folders on the microSD-Card (see picture).
    After this id done put the microSD-card back into the transmitter.





2.

Import model memory


  • In the next step we can import the model memory in the transmitter.

    The steps are:

    • Switch ON the transmitter
      • If you see "Please select RF on/off?" -> select "OFF"

    • With the right "four-way button" select the middle button SET to open the Menu

    • Go down to Copy/Erase and press SET

    • Choose Import from SD and press SET

    • In the next window select "MK-Easy" and press SET again

    • Under "import to model" select the first place 01 and confirm with SET

    • We confirm the question "import?" with YES and SET

3.

Import MK-voice file


  • Only with the MK-voice file you can get the right announce for your MikroKopter via the transmitter

    To install the voice file you have to open the "hidden mode":

    • On the left "four-way button" (ESC) press the buttons UP and DOWN at the same time and hold it

    • Now press at the right "four-way button" the center button SET

    • In the "hidden mode" choose VOICE and open it with SET

    • Select the MK-voice file you need (DE/EN) and start the import with SET

http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/albums/intern/HoTT/Display1/HoTT-MK-Sprachfile-Import.jpg?m=1498210592





4.

Bind receiver


  • Now we can bind the receiver to the model memory MK-Easy.

    To do this the receiver must be connected inthe right way with your copter and the copter must be powered ON with a Lipo.
    (See also: Connect receiver)

    The steps are:

    • With the right "four-way button" select the middle button SET to open the Menu

    • Go down to Base setup model and press SET

    • Go down to "module HoTT" and select the left n/a

    • Now press at the receiver the "SET" button for ~3-4 seconds until the red LED is flashing red/green
    • Then pres the SET button on your transmitter

    • In the window you see now Finding...

    • When the receiver is properly bound, you see bind instead of n/a

http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/albums/intern/HoTT/Display1/HoTT-Empf-Binden.jpg?m=1498215001

  • INFO:
    The copter will maybe "beep" for the whole time. This will stop when all settings on the receiver are done.





5.

Deactivate receiver-FS


  • In the basic settings the receiver use his own "fail safe". This we have to deactivate.
    (When we not deactivate it and the copter lost the signal, he will fly away with the last received stick positions.)

    That the copter always flies back to the "home position" (when he lost the signal) we have to use the MikroKopter FailSafe.

    To deactivate it we have to do:

    • With the right "four-way button" select the middle button SET to open the Menu

    • Go down to Telemetry and press SET

    • In the telemetry window choose setting & data view and press SET

    • In the next menu press the right button to open RX FAIL SAFE

    • Here change MODE from "HOLD" to OFF...

6.

Activate PPM-Sum signal


  • For the FlightCtrl we need a ppm sum signal. This we can set now.
    As long as this is not set we get fron the copter an error messag ("err7: RC Signal lost") and the copter is
    beeping the whole time.
    Directly after activating the sum signal the beeping stop and you can use the channels on the copter.

    The steps are:

    • With the right "four-way button" select the middle button SET to open the Menu

    • Go down to Telemetry and press SET

    • In the telemetry window choose setting & data view and press SET

    • In the next menu press the right button to open RX SERVO TEST

    • Here change CH OUT TYPE from "ONCE" to SUMO 16...

Logfile in the transmitter

http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/resizes/intern/HoTT/Display1/HoTT-Start-Uhr.jpg?m=1498643919

http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/albums/intern/HoTT/grStudio/Upgrade_grStudio.jpg?m=1498648733

The telemetry data of the transmitter and also the position data of the copter are stored
on a sd card in the transmitter.
The recording of this data will start with starting of the "flight timer". With our model memory "MK-Easy"
this will start automatically when you start the copter (see picture).

Just in case you would loose your copter you can see the last position in this LOG.


In this case you can remove the card from your transmitter and put them in the computer. With the Graupner "PC Software" you can open the LOG and see the last position of the copter.

!!! IMPORTANT: If your copter will fly away NEVER switch off the transmitter !!!

As long as telemetry data from the Kopter are received, the flight route = position of the Kopter can be followed.





Import setting (copter)

The setting is adapted to the model memory of the transmitter. So you can start directly with your MikroKopter and have not to do the settings manually.

The single steps are:

  • Download the MK-Setting (Download)

  • Connect your MikroKopter with your Computer

  • Start the MikroKopter-Tool and open the Settings

  • Via the button Load you can open the setting MK-Easy

  • The settings are now automatically set and you can see the changes
  • If not done -> Choose the right copter type in the MixerSETUP

  • Now save this setting with the button Write in your copter
    (Do the same for all five storage locations in copter)
