Stick (Gimbal) calibrationHere, we will introduce stick calibration method of OpenTX / EdgeTX radio.
The same operation is possible with any radio that uses OpenTX / EdgeTX. However, keyswitch assignments / functions differ depending on model, and screen / menu configuration differs depending on installed version of OpenTX / EdgeTX.

Drone's flight is strange !? Stick broke !?If you feel drone is behaving strangely, or if you feel stick is broken, first check the main screen below. If you feel something is wrong with your flight or drone simulator , check these screens to find out where the cause lies.
In this "CHANNELS (MIXERS) MONITOR" (Output Monitor) screen, value of each channel output from the radio (transmitter) is displayed as a bar graph. You can see the actual output value of each channel processed and synthesized on MIXES screen of "MODEL menu".
Make sure bar graph moves smoothly as you move each stick.
In this Input Monitor screen, one of the main screens, current input state of sticks and switches recognized by radio is displayed as an illustration.
Make sure illustration moves smoothly as you move each stick.
Stick calibrationBefore using radio, or if actual operation and output of the radio deviate from each other, calibrate sticks and dials (Pot: Potentiometer) so that they can be read correctly.
When calibrating, move sticks up / down and left / right so that it passes through the center position. Please note that if you rotate the stick in a circular motion, you will not be able to calibrate correctly.
