==Preparing the transmitter== <!--T:3-->
You can use nearly any transmitter that provides at least 6 channels. By default 5 channels are used for controlling Microbeast PLUS and one channel controls the motor. If using additional features like AttitudeControl or (nitro) RPM Governor more channels may be useful to have. (Please note the RPM Governor only can be used if you have a [[Manuals:MB_Plus:Receiver_Installation/en#Single-Line_receivers|single-line receiver]]!).<br />

'''Disable any mixing functions for the swashplate or rudder. Each function should be assigned to just one receiver channel.''' It is advisable to create different flight modes for different flight states/rotor headspeeds. This will allow to set tail gyro gain depending on the flight modes using the radio's tail gyro adjustment menu.

{{QUOTE|'''Never enable your radio‘s eCCPM mixing function!''' All the swashplate mixing will be done by Microbeast PLUS. Always set your radio‘s swash mixer to mCCPM (mechanical mixing) which is often called “H1”, “1 servo” or “normal“ mixing or disable “swash mixing” if applicable.}}

'''Be sure that all trims and sub trims are disabled and that all servo travels are set to 100%. ''' Increasing or decreasing the servo travel/stick throw for aileron, elevator and rudder will later adjust the (maximum) control rates. For the moment to setup Microbeast PLUS let anything stay at default. Also do not adjust the collective pitch curve at the moment. For the setup procedures it has to be set as a straight line reaching from -100% to +100% (or 0 to 100% depending on radio brand).</p><p>Again make sure that there are no There mustn't be any active mixing functions active (for example rudder revo-mixing). Have a look at the radio’s servo monitor: each stick has to control one channel/servo output (except for thrust stick which typically controls collective pitch and motor). Remember when using Microbeast PLUS you do not directly control the servos of the helicopter. By moving a stick you give a control command to the Microbeast PLUS unit which then performs the necessary servo movements to move the helictoper in the commanded direction. Each control command is bound to one servo output channel of the transmitter. When using flight modes again make sure that there is no mixing active in any flight mode and that all trims and subtrims are zero in all flight modes.</p><br />{|class="gallery" style="font-style: italic"|- |style="padding:0px 10px;" align="center"|[[Image:SPM_0095.png|192px|none|border]]|style="padding:0px 10px;" align="center"|[[Image:SPM_0080.png|192px|none|border]]|style="padding:0px 10px;" align="center"|[[Image:SPM_0081.png|192px|none|border]]|style="padding:0px 10px;" align="center"|[[Image:Other_functions.png|192px|none|border]]|}<br /><br />
'''Other functions such as throttle curves, ESC switches or auxiliary functions can be adjusted as usual. ''' When using the RPM Governor function the throttle adjustment will be described later. Also the switch assignment for AttitudeControl will be discussed at the specific topic.</p>
