- Info: Information regarding your WKM.
- Error Code
- Write data of the current page to your MC. The parameter or the title of which will turn red and bold when modified, make sure you click the Write button or press Enter to update your system. Optional parameters will be written to MC directly after modification.
- READ：Read parameters from MC for current page.
- EXPORT：Export configuration data.
- IMPORT：Import version compatible configuration data.
- Graphic guidance
- Text guidance
- Control mode indication
- MC Output On：Indicates there are outputs to ESCs; when communication is built up between MC and assistant software via USB cable, MC Output Off appears, it indicates no output to motors, then you can configure your multi rotor with assistant software more safely!
- Status Indicators
- Red light: WKMPC has been disconnected.
- Green light: WKMPC has been connected.
- Blue light: WKMPC communication.
- Here you can find all the configuration contents.
- Configuration Step
- Select IMU mounting orientation. Orient the IMU such that the arrow marked on the printed surface of the IMU faces the sky and points directly forward, backward, left or right. The sides of the IMU should be precisely parallel to the multi rotor body.
- Install all payloads that will be used during the flight, including batteries, camera mount and camera. Balance the multi rotor as you would normally, with the center of gravity (C.G.) directly on the center plate. Fill in the distance between body center of IMU/GPS and the C.G. of multi rotor in X, Y & Z axles as showed in the figure.
- You must re-configure if the ALL-UP-WEIGHT had been changed on your multi rotor,
- If mounting locations are not accurate enough or the signsare wrong, error on X, Y，Z axles will leads the oscillation of your multi rotor.
- Make sure to follow the diagram in our assistant software: red is positive, green is negative; unit of measure is CM, NOT INCH.
Set your transmitter into ACROBATIC mode.Then select the right mixer type according to your multi-rotor. For user whose aircraft takes off at lowest throttles position, please set the idle speed at a low level. For common users, please set Motor Idle Speedto RECOMMEND or above,since setting idle speed too low may affect motor(s) spool up.
- Do NOT follow instruction from your multi-rotor manufacturer! Make sure the rotation direction of each motor is the same as the way assistant software figure shows. If not, switch any of two wire connetcions of the incorrect motor to change its rotation direction.
- Make sure the type of propeller matches the rotation direction of motor.
R/C Transmitter Calibration
Slides Moving Definition：
T: Slide left is craft down, slide right is craft up;
R: Slide left is nose left, slide right is nose right;
E: Slide left is craft back, slide right is craft front;
A: Slide left is craft left, slide right is craft right.
STEP1: Set endpoints of all channels to default values (100%) and set all trims and sub-trims of sticks to 0 on your transmitter first. Keep all curves’ settings as default since the end-point of transmitter sticks will be recorded here.
STEP2: Click START button, and move all of the sticks throughout their complete range several times.
STEP3: After that, click FINISH button when you finished above procedures.
STEP4: If the moving direction of the slide is opposite to the Slides Moving Definition, click the reverse button REV/NORM beside.
For more information see R/C Transmitter Setting.
1. All slides should become when all the sticks are in the middle positions. If slides cannot go back to center points (become ), just click FINISH, then slides will be at center automatically. If still not, please reboot MC, and do not apply Tx command during the reboot.
2. CSC may not start motors If trims and sub-trims of sticks are not 0!
Step 1： Basic Parameters
Usually, the default parameters are ready to go. However, different multi rotors have different gains because of different size, ESC, motor and propeller. If gain is too large, you will find the multi rotoroscillating in the corresponding direction (About 5~10Hz). If too small, the multi rotorwill likely to be hard to control.So you can still setup the basic Gain of Pitch, Roll, Yaw and Vertical manuallyaccording to your multi rotor to have a wonderful fly experience. We suggest you to change 10% to 15% of the parameter at a time.
Step 2： Advanced Parameters
Usually you can ignore this step. The default values are suitable for most of the conditions, so we do NOT recommend you to change the parameters here. To some special multi rotor, experienced user can adjust the advanced parameters to have a better fly experience.
Step 3： Enhanced Failsafe
Choose one as your failed-safe method, which will be triggered when MC loses the control signal in one of the following situations:
1) Signal lost between transmitter and receiver, e.g. multi-rotor is out of the communication range, or transmitter is down, and so on.
2) One or more connections of A, E, T, R, U channels between MC and receiver loses.
Auto Return to Home Failsafe:
Step 4： Intelligent Orientation Control
Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. By using Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC), wherever nose points, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction:
1. Gimbal Switch
If you use gimbal, please choose On here.
If you open the gimbal control in assistant software during the configuration, please note that there is output from F1 and F2 ports. Now you should not connect these ports to ESCs which is wired with propellers equipped motors.
If you want to use gimbal with an Octo-rotor, you have to use S-Bus or PPM receiver, then you can use port T and R for gimbal control. Otherwise, there will be no ports on MC for gimbal.
2. Servo Travel Limit
Range: -1000 to+1000.
MAX/MIN are servo travel limits; adjust them to avoid mechanical binding; Place your multi rotor on level ground, adjust Center value of Pitch and Roll direction to make the camera mounting frame to your desired angle-to-ground.
3. Automatic Control Gain
Range: 0 to 100.
Adjust the reaction angle of automatic control. The initial value 100 is full angle. The bigger the gain, the bigger the reaction angle.ClickREV/NORM, and then you can reverse the feedback control directions.
4. Manual Control Speed
Range: 0 to 100.
You should assign one of the knobs on your transmitter to X3 channel for controlling the Pitch direction (angle) of camera gimbal during flight first. Then adjust the reaction speed of pitch direction manual control; the initial value 100 is full speed.
When X3 is set as stick monitor or for switch go-home, users can not adjust the gimbal pitch by X3 channel.
In order to prevent your multi-rotor from crash or other harmful consequences caused by low battery voltage, we have designed two levels low voltage protections. You can choose to not to use them, however we strongly recommend to open the protections here!
