I put together a Gaui X330 with a Terminator frame kit a while back. I'm using my Futaba 7CH Tx. I'm finding it's real twitchy even with the settings turned down. Now I'm wondering if just a basic aircraft Tx would be better? I've looked into buying a Tx, it definitely would be a 2.4g Tx

The twichiness you experience has nothing to dö with your transmitter. You have to look into the settings of your gyros/stabilizer components.

Let me put it this way. It's too sensitive around center stick.

I have no problem setting up the Tx. I just wasn't sure if I could completely "dial" out the mixer function. I played around with the Tx discovered where to switch it over to "Aero"...sweet! I'm still looking into a 2.4 system.

Now that I have managed to switch my Tx Heli over to Aero mode and replaced the Terminator frame(hovered steady) with a DJI clone frame,afraid the Terminator being plywood and breaking upon impact. . Now has...best way to describe is a Wha Wha Wha(motors hunting) while in hover. I know I need to go back and redo the controller set up.

I used the info provided by Empire Hobby. I copied and pasted the info here with out the link,another RC site. Didn't want to start any squabbles. Anyway here is the set up I used and my quad is rock steady. Thanks!

Here is a quick guide to setting up your Quad with the GU-344.

GAUI 330X-S Speed Control Calibration
By JC Zankl
4/12/2011

We are going to walk you through step by step on how to recalibrate the GAUI 10amp ESC’s for your GAUI 330X Quad Flyer.

ATTENTION: PLEASE FOR THE SET UP STEPS PULL ALL THE PROPS OFF OF YOUR QUAD.

Motors to ESC

Motor 1,3 Red to Red, Black to Black, and Yellow to Yellow
Motor 2,4 Red to Black, Black to Red, and Yellow to Yellow

Plugging In your Quad and Transmitter

NOTE: USE A FRESH MODEL IN YOUR TRANSMITTER AND ACRO/AIRPLANE FOR MODEL TYPE.

Looking from behind your Quad Flyer Looking at the Ball. The Motor directly to the Right of that is (Motor 1 Upper Right), Going clockwise Motor 2 (Back Right) Motor 3 (Back Left) and Motor 4 (Upper Left).

PLEASE NOTE: The Wires plug in with Negative Wire going towards the top of the 344 Unit.

Motor 1 Plugs into Channel One
Motor 2 Plugs into Channel Two
Motor 3 Plugs into Channel Three
Motor 4 Plugs into Channel Four

GU-344 Unit to Your Receiver

3 Wire – Aileron
Red Wire- Elevator
Orange Wire- Throttle
Yellow Wire- Rudder
Green Wire- Gear

Channel Reversing
JR/Spektrum
Aileron- Reverse
Elevator- Reverse
Rudder- Reverse
Throttle- Normal

Futaba
Aileron-Normal
Elevator-Normal
Throttle-Reverse
Rudder-Normal

Quad Settings

Step 1) Setting Travel Adjust / End Points For ESC’s Calibration, Then after calibration we will adjust a couple of these.

Aileron –100% / +100%
Elevator -100% / +100%
Rudder –100% / +100%
Throttle -100% / +100%
Gear –100% / +100%

Step 2) On your Quad Unplug your Green Wire from Receiver and make sure your Gain Pot is turned all the way Counter Clockwise

Step 3) Turn ON Transmitter Move Throttle TRIM to full 0 (all the way to bottom) And move your Throttle Stick to Full Power.

Step 4) Plug in power to your GAUI 330X and listen for 2 tones once you hear those 2 tones move your throttle stick to the Low throttle position. Unplug your Quad.

Step 5) Plug Green Wire back into Channel 5 on your Receiver (Gear Channel).

Transmitter Basic Settings

Now that your ESC’s have been successfully Calibrated we are going to set the transmitter values for flying your quad.

End Points/Travel Adjust Menu
Throttle -100% / +75%
Aileron -100% / +100%
Elevater -100% / +100%
Rudder -100% / +100%
Gear -50% / +50% ( Remember this is your Gyro Gain, And with a Negative number in Cruise mode will give you best results. To Achieve a negative number for Cruise simply reverse the switch in your transmitter.) These Values are purely a starting point and may need adjusting by the user to obtain the feel you want.

There are 2 modes on the GAUI 344 Unit. Cruise and Hover. We have found that the 344 unit likes to see a Negative number in Cruise mode (Red LED). And a positive number in Hover Mode (Green LED). You can switch modes by flipping your Gear Switch on the Transmitter.

What Props Go Where???

Motor 1 8A
Motor 2 8B
Motor 3 8A
Motor 4 8B

Test Flying Your Quad

Pull your Quad up into a hover. To get your Trims close Use SUB TRIM in your transmitter.
