Info

Important

If you use the latest Graupner software on your transmitter and receiver, you have to switch off the
FAIL SAFE in the receiver !!!

If you do not switch off the FAIL SAFE the copter can not note the "signal lost" if the connection is broken !!!

Switching off goes like this:

  • Switch ON the transmitter and receiver
  • Push and hold the button ESC - the menu Menü Telemetry opens

  • Down to SETTING & DATA VIEW and open with SET

  • Go right to the menu RX FAIL SAFE

  • OUTPUT CH und INPUT CH are set to 01
  • Down to MODE and edit with SET

  • Change from HOLD to OFF

  • Pres SET again and close the menu with ESC

Ready.

If now the transmitter / receiver lost the signal, the copter will note this.
You can test this quick.Switch off the transmitter. Now the copter should beep.



The described settings and procedures are related to the current V4 from Graupner.
All references to pages of the instruction manual refer to the current manual "33124.mx-20 HoTT.1.en" (Link).
If a transmitter/receiver with V3 is used it should be provided with the current V4.
Here, in addition to the software of the transmitter and receiver you should also upload the latest language file.

A working model memory for the MX-20 and a setting for the FlightCtrl you can find and download under "Example: Setting - Download".

Configure the transmitter + bind receiver

Spring in the transmitter

By default there is a spring at the gas stick which keeps it always in the center position.
Normally this spring of the gas-stick is without function to move the stick infinitely variable. (Instruction of the transmitter - page 18)

If you have already a little bit experience and if you want to fly with vario-height control all the time, you don't need to remove the spring.
If you leave the spring in function so that the Gas-Stick is always in a middle-position you need to enter in the setting (Link) at "Stick neutral point" the middle-position => 127:

Set Stick Mode

The easiest way (also for beginners) is to fly the MikroKopter in Mode2.
Here you have the function "Gas" and "Yaw" on the left control stick, "Nick" and "Roll" on the right control stick.
(Instruction of the transmitter - page 68)

If you fly a different mode over years you can also use it here.
The stick arrangement for the different modes (1-4) and how the various functions of the MikroKopter can be set via the transmitter is described here: Stick-Setup

Adjust transmitter to Stick-Mode2 (or a different mode):

  • In the opening screen of the transmitter you need to press on SET to enter the settings.

  • With the arrow keys UP/DOWN you choose the entry Base setup model and with the key SET you open it.

  • Here you switch to the entry Stick mode and choose it with the SET button (The displayed number is now a dark background).

  • With the arrow keys you can set now the desired mode (1-4) and save it with "SET".
  • Via the button "ESC" you can switch back.

Set the receiver to sum-signal

The !Mikrokopter needs a so-called !sum-signal. All channels of the receiver are included in it. This makes the wireing a lot easier compared to normal servo-receivers.

After the receiver has been bound to the transmitter you can set the PPM sum-signal:
(Instruction of the transmitter - CH OUTPUT TYPE - page 238)

  • The receiver has to be supplied with 5V (i.e via 3-core-wire from the FlightCtrl).

  • Hold down "ESC" at the transmitter for about 2 seconds -> You get into the menu "Telemetry".

  • Select SETTING & DATA VIEW and open it via the button SET.

  • The menu RX SERVO TEST will open.

  • Switch to the menu "RX SERVO TEST" by pressing "right" 5 times.
    • INFO: If you have clicked to far and you see the MK-Menu you can remove the 1-core telemetry plug from the FC to get back to the page "RX SERVO TEST".
  • In the menu "RX SERVO TEST" you switch to the lower entry CH OUT TYPE.

  • With the button SET you open that entry and you change from "ONCE" to SUMO (with the arrow keys UP/DOWN).

  • Confirm with SET.
  • You get to the data field with the number of channels in the sum-signal. Set this to "12" with Up/Down (for 12 channels).

http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=112260&g2_serialNumber=2
http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=113352&g2_serialNumber=2 http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=112205&g2_serialNumber=2 http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=112211&g2_serialNumber=2

INFO

If you hold down the button (accidentially) at the receiver while connecting, the "SUMO 12" setting will be deleted. This can be also happen if you connect the receiver with a powered up Mikrokopter and hold down the button. In this case you have to set this setting again.

INFO

If you doesn't have a number behind SUMO an older software version is installed in the receiver!
You have to update the receiver. How to update the receiver you can see here: Update





Set servo adjustment

To run the functions on the MikroKopter properly the servo adjustment of the 12 individual channels must reach a range of "0" to "254" (See also later in the KopterTool).
The servo adjustments at the transmitter are pre-set to 100% for all channels. If you leave it in that way you are not able to reach the full servo adjustment.
For that reason you need to set all servo adjustments to 103%.

To set the servo adjustments we proceed as follows:

  • Press SET in the opening screen to get into the settings.

  • Select servo adjustment with UP/DOWN and open it with SET.

  • Switch to the channel (S1-S12) which need to be changed. Use the arrow-key to the right on the percentages for "- travel +" and select SET.

  • (Both percentage values are selected at the same time (dark background))
    • INFO: If only one percentage value is selected you can toggle/turn through the appropriate switch/potentiometer to the second percentage
  • Change the percentage value with UP/DOWN to "103%" and press SET to confirm.

In that way you set all 12 channels.

(Instruction of the transmitter - page 90)

ASSIGN CHANNELS

In your transmitter the first four channels are already assigned to the control sticks for the function Gas, Yaw, Nick und Roll.
The remaining channels (5-12) you can assign freely to switches, buttons and potentiometer on your transmitter.
With those channels you can control the functions of the MikroKopter.
(Instruction of the transmitter - page 71)

Before starting with the assignment of the channels you should establish memory for that at your transmitter.
This memory need to be created as Winged Model. The first memory is usually already set as a Winged Model and can be used.
Is that not the case or you need an additional model memory (because you operate more than one Kopter or other models with one transmitter) you can set it as a new Winged Model.

Setting of the channels:

To assign the channels you proceed as follows:

First at all switch all switches to an "OFF"-position (away from you).

  • Press SET in the opening screen to get into the settings.

  • Select Control adjust with UP/DOWN and open it with SET.

  • Choose desired channel with UP/DOWN (i.e. channel 5 => |Input. 5|GL|---| 0%|).

  • Here now switch with LEFT/RIGHT to the three bars (---) and push SET.

  • A display appears "Move desired switch or control adj.".
  • Now switch the desired switch (or turn potentiometer).
  • Instead of the three bars you will see now the operated switchn.

Repeat now the operations for the remaining channels.

If you e.g. will not hear a message if you switch a function (like GPS, altitude, CareFree, etc.) you can change it.

Therefore you can switch between "All Messages" or "Warnings only":

  • In the opening screen of the transmitter press ESC for around ~2 seconds to switch into the telemetry.

  • With UP/DOWN select Setting & Data View and open it with SET.

  • Now either way click 1x arrow "UP" or 6x arrow "RIGHT".

Modell memory for transmitter

(!) A "ready to use"-setting like above you can download here:



http://gallery.mikrokopter.de/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=141347&g2_serialNumber=1
(To enlarge -> click on the image)

After downloading the file (aMK MX-20.mdl) you can copy it directly into a folder "Models/mx-20" on a Micro-SD-Card.
How you import model memories from the Micro-SD-Card into your transmitter can be read in the instruction on page 66 (Chapter: Import SD).
>

INFO:
If you insert an empty Micro-SD-Card into the transmitter and switch it on, automatically the needed directories will be created.

In this model memory is the upper right Flight-Time counter/Flt active. This one is set in that way as soon as the Gas-Stick will be moved upwards the Flight-Time counter starts.
This Flight-Time counter is required so that the GPS position data of the Kopter can be saved on a Micro-SD-Card in your transmitter.
So, if the Kopter is maybe getting lost you still have then the last received coordinates of the Kopter.

Is the Gas-Stick down this counter still continues! (Instruction see page 139)
To stop it you can push the ESC button.
To reset the Flight-Time counter you need to push the UP/DOWN (or LEFT/RIGHT) button to the same time on the right Touch-Pads.
(Instructions of the transmitter - page 138 + 252)


<!> The channels in both model memory are set as you can see here.
If you use this model memory you have to set this functions/channels in the settings of the FlightCtrl.
(or you dowload the setting below and update your FlightCtrl with this setting.)

(to enlarge -> click image)


TIPP: If you use a different mode rather then Mode 2 you are still able to use the downloaded model memory.
After downloading the model memory you can set the desired mode (1,3,4) by yourself (Instruction manual page 68).
The control sticks have then the channels/function of the set mode. All other switches/channels remain as described in the example.

Setting FlightCtrl

Here you find a setting for the FlightCtrl (from V2.02): Download.
The settings are adjusted with the model memory for the MX-20.

To load the setting into the FlightCtrl, open the settings of the KopterTool.
Here "click" the button Load in the bottom bar and open the downloaded setting "MK-Setting_(V2.00).mkp".
After this "click" the button Write to set the setting into the FlightCtrl.

<!> Note:
The FlightCtrl have 5 Settings you can save. If you wan to use the downloaded setting in all 5 settings you have to open each setting single and save the downloaded setting there.
After you safe the setting into the FlightCtrl you have to set the right Mixer (Link).
