CX-10WD-TX Calibration and Trim
Cheerson CX-10WD FPV on a Phone!
Cheerson CX-10 User Manual
After unpacking you should first charge the flight battery. Simply connect the Copter with the Cheeron CX-10 and the included USB charging cable and choose a USB charging socket (PC, laptop,…). Charging varies depending on the current supplied by the socket. Experience has shown that it takes about 20 minutes before the LiPo is full again. This is indicated by the LED in the USB connector going out. The Cheerson CX-10 is delivered loaded according to our experience and only needs to be loaded briefly (a few minutes) the first time.
For the 2.4 GHz radio transmitter you also need 2x AAA batteries.
If the flight battery is charged and the transmitter is ready, then it can almost go up in the air 😉
Calibration of the Gyro Sensor
Normally the Cheerson CX-10 is delivered calibrated and flies very well after unpacking. However, it is possible that the gyro sensor is not properly calibrated due to external influences. This would result in the copter not flying exactly horizontally and drifting unflown.
To be on the safe side, we will quickly carry out a calibration. Even after a violent crash, recalibration may be necessary. Usually the gyro problem is solved afterwards.
Here’s how it works:
Place the copter on an absolutely straight surface and switch it on.
Turn on the transmitter, move the throttle all the way up and back down. You will hear a beep from the transmitter.
Attention: The copter is now tied to the transmitter and flies when accelerating again!
Move the left stick down left and the right stick up left. Hold this position for approx. 5 seconds. The copter will blink to indicate that calibration has been performed.
Now the Cheerson should not drift any more – or only slightly.
The battery is charged, your fingers loosened, pets and children safe? Then let’s get started:
Copter and transmitter can be switched on. The flashing LEDs on the copter indicate that it is not yet connected to the transmitter. To „arm“ the throttle once all the way up and all the way down. The transmitter beeps and the LEDs on the copter light up constantly. Now you can fly! Bloody beginners should first try to let the copter bounce and float a little while maintaining position and height.
You should also know that the red LEDs on the back of the copter and the blue LEDs on the front.
The control in the so-called MODE 2 (the most common variant, with the throttle on the left) works like this:
Left stick up/down: Climb/Sink
Left stick left/right: rotation around its own axis
Right stick up/down: Forward/Reverse
Right stick left/right: sideways to left or right
Don’t panic, the copter’s taking a lot of mishaps away 😉 However, in the event of a crash, the engines should be switched off IMMEDIATELY (i.e. the gas stick downwards) so that they do not suffer any damage if they are blocked.
If the copter drifts slightly in a certain direction, this can be largely eliminated with the small arrow keys on the transmitter: Simply press the arrow in the opposite direction a couple of times until the side drift is balanced.
Change the Copter flight mode – set more agile
The Cheerson CX-10 has three flight modes that determine how the copter reacts to the stick’s deflections in flight. While the first mode is very simple, the little copter is already very fast in the third mode. The mode is changed by pressing the gas stick and always starts in the first mode. The transmitter indicates the level of difficulty by the number of beeps.
Syma has also made the X5HW a very focused beginner drone, giving it a smoother and less aggressive flight performance. Clearly, the X5HW was made for beginners and ...
