Start the radio and press MENU button. Then enter the Model menu by pressing the Rotary knob.


Select New Model, enter name of the Model and select Heli type. Then continue by pressing right button under display.

In the Basic Properties menu select Heli to Spirit and continue to another page. (Please note transmitter update 5.04+ is required for this option - only available in DS-12 Spirit Edition at the moment).

4 Basic Helicopter settings

Open Heli Tuning menu - Main Menu/Heli Tuning.


4.1 Flight Modes

Enter Flight Modes menu and press Yes when prompted "Created flight modes?".


Assign switch for Autorot. mode - usually it is two-state switch called Sc at the left front side of the radio. This switch will be used for Throttle Hold/Autorotation. Also assign switch for all Idle modes - usually it is tri-state switch called Sa above Sc.

4.2 Throttle Curve

Open Throttle curve menu - Main Menu/Heli Tuning/Throttle curve.

In a similar way set Pitch curve - in the most cases no changes are required. It is preconfigured to -100 to 100% linear curve. For beginners Pitch curve such as -20 to 100% is more suitable.


4.4 Gyro Gain

For the beginning you can use these values. Positive value will activate Head-Lock Gyro mode, while a negative value will engage Normal (Rate) mode.
