Fly ‘x’-treme with the new ‘x’ mode support! Firmware version 7.0 significantly improves the main flight control QC-09 characteristics of both, the RC EYE 450 and 650. Response to stick inputs has been further enhanced. Position hold is noticeable improved. Firmware version 7.0 also introduces two “directional flight modes”, the ‘x’ and ‘+’ mode. DIP switch assignment has been re-defined and added. Additionally pilots will benefit from an enhanced sensor calibration algorithm as well as simplified configuration options.
Activating Bootloader mode
From Firmware version 7.0 Bootloader mode may be entered by selecting “Goto Bootloader” software button without having to alter the DIP (DIP 3) switch located on main flight control QC-09. Respectively exiting the Bootloader mode simply requires clicking the “Start application” button.
Restoring Standard Parameter
Version 7.0 introduces the button “Standardparameter”. Selecting this button restores the standard parameters and displays the standard (default values) values for each input field respectively. Users may change these parameters to their personal flight preferences and transfer them back into the main flight control PCB where they will be stored. This function is only available in “user mode”. This function allows restoring default parameters in case they have been altered unintentionally.
Version 7.0 provides an improved sensor calibration method while connection the flight battery and while performing the reference position calibration. It is required to have the RC EYE positioned absolutely steady on a level surface without disturbing (not touching) the model until the calibration has been completed. If the model is not kept steady for at least 20 seconds during calibration, the RC EYE may drift unexpectedly strong during hover! This will also result in an extended power-up time of up to 30 seconds, during which the RC EYE must be placed absolutely level and must not be touched, until the RC EYE is ready to fly.
DIP Switch 5 (Directional Flight +/x)
Toggle between ‘x’ and ‘+’ directional flight modes.
DIP 5 in ON position -> ‘x’ mode
DIP 5 in OFF position -> ‘+’ mode
The kit includes a landing gear rotation adapter constructed from high-grade carbon fiber. All required mounting material, such as screws and washers are included. The installation is quick, clean and easy. In order to use the kit you are required to transfer the firmware into the main flight control QC-09 using the interface cable which was included with the RCEYE 650 kit. The required ‘x’-mode firmware and software application are available for download.
