Preset helicopter settings

For a given set of helicopters StudioX offers preset setups. In case you have the exact same helicopter with similar electronic setup (i. e. servos, ESC, ...) you can load the preset for your helicopter to your BEASTX flybarless device. So it is not necessary to go through the basic setup routine as your device will be readily setup by loading the preset. Anyhow, you must make sure your radio setup is done properly and that all control commands on the radio are working as expected. Also it may be nessary to readjust the servo center positions, either using the quick adjust option in PARAMETER MENU or the single trimm option of SETUP MENU. Last but not least it is absolutely mandatory that your BEASTX device is mounted in the exact same position is defined by the given preset. Otherwise the correction of the system will go into the wrong direction. In case your device is mounted differently, you must check and readjust device orientation in SETUPMENU!

With StudioX you can save your current device settings and load them to your device again, i. e. when you like to test the effect of some parameters and you want switch back to the former setup. With the StudioX software for PC and macOS it is also possible to export those backups to the computer's file system. So you can share your settings with other pilots.

Click the "Reset" button and confirm the question "Are you really sure?". Now all settings are set to default and you have to perform the basic setup again, in order to fly the helicopter.
