Setup menu point B is for selecting the servo update frequency (pulse rate) for the swashplate servos. To optimize the performance of MICROBEAST PLUS the rule is: the higher the better! With high update frequency the system will recalculate correctional movements more often and in consequence will send new commands to the servos with a higher frequency. Nevertheless, this will cause the servos to make more position changes at a given timeframe. In case your servo is not built for this kind of application this can cause an unusual high power consumption of the receiver power supply and cause the servos getting very hot. When this happens, reduce frequency immediately to prevent your servos from getting damaged. Only go as high as recommended by the servo manufacturer, or even lower when the servo is not capable of handling such high frequency in field use.

When using a servo that allows a higher frequency as MICROBEAST PLUS offers or that allows a maximum frequency which is not choosable, please select the next lower frequency that is closest to the given frequency or set the frequency with StudioXm PC Software or mobile App. Note: Using a lower frequency is always possible. Only too high frequencies can damage the servo and/or will cause the servo to not work properly. Here you can find a list of parameters for the most common servos. Please understand that we can not list all servo types. We also can not guarantee the accuracy of this data. Ask the manufacturer of the servos or your servo dealer for detailed information.

Warning.png If you do not know the maximum pulse rate tolerated by your servos do not select more than 50Hz driving frequency. A higher driving frequency can lead to failure of the servos!
With high frequencies, some servos run in a jerky manner, especially the fast ones with coreless or brushless servos. This is due to the high update rate that the servo receives. This is not critical and will not impact flight performance.
