You can use nearly any radio system in combination with MICROBEAST PLUS. Due to the very different types of receivers and radio systems and their different types of signal output, you must setup the radio system in the RECEIVER MENU.

Additionally when using as socalled "single-line" receiver, it is mandatory to define the function assignment for the radio output channels. A single-line receiver bundles the control information to data packages or serialized electrical signals. So it is not clear, which channel controls which (stick) function.

Since firmware version 5.4.x it is possible to use an ESC with telemetry data output. If you've unlocked the TELEMETRY or PROEDITION feature, MICROBEAST PLUS can process the telemetry data and forward it to the receiver. Again, there is a huge variety on the market and lots of different types of protocols are used. So it is necessary to setup the type of telemetry input, before you can use MICROBEAST PLUS with your telemetry system.

Finally, when using a single-line receiver you have to set a failsafe position for the throttle channel. This defines at which position the motor is disabled and where to move the throttle in case the receiver is not sending any throttle signal, i.e. during power up or in case of loss of radio link.

By default the "Standard Receiver" is selected as receiver type. So if you're using this type of receiver and your MICROBEAST PLUS is brand new, you can skip this section as it is already setup correctly!
