Vortex 250 Pro - Transmitter Setup
Posted by Jeff Fryer on 30 August 2016 01:54 PM

R/C Transmitter Configuration

Depending upon the R/C transmitter in use, certain parameters need to be modified in order to ensure compatibility with the Vortex 250 Pro, and more importantly with the Cleanflight Flight Controller firmware.

In all cases, during the wizard setup, the current ‘PPM Value’ is shown on-screen beside each control. This value must be as close as possible to a min. of 1000, center of 1500, and max. of 2000.

It is highly recommended to start with a ‘clean’ configuration (new model) for all radios.

  • Two channels need reversing, AIL, and RUD.
  • Map channel 5 to a 2 or 3-position switch to control flight mode (Acro/Horiz or Acro/Level/Horiz).
  • Verify that the endpoints are 1000/1500/2000 as described above.

FrSky Taranis Radio

  • Map channel 5 to a 3-position switch to control flight mode (Acro/Level/Horiz).
  • Verify that the endpoints are 1000/1500/2000 as described above.

Futaba S‐Bus Radios

  • Map channel 5 to a 3-position switch to control flight mode (Acro/Level/Horiz).
  • Reverse channels ELE and THR
  • Change subtrim to -31 for THR, AIL, ELE, RUD

  • Verify that the endpoints are 1000/1500/2000 as described above.
