Walkera Scout X4 and Parts List

 

The next generation of quadcopters with ground stations and telemetry

Synopsis: Following the success of the H500, the X4 was released to meet the next generation of UAV multirotors.  This is the improved all-in-one FPV ready quadcopter with retractable landing gears. With a 6S 5400 mAh LiPo battery and designed with strong light weight materials, this quad promised a 20 minutes flight time with gimbal, osd and camera loaded.

Known to a few people, one of the underlying strength of the Scout X4 is it uses a variation of the Linux's Dronecode Arducopter.  Walkera iUAS is among the elite group of founding members that leverages the open source software and collaborative development effort to advance Intelligent Unmanned Aircraft Systems (IUAS), as announced in Germany Oct, 12, 2014.

There are two versions of the Scout X4 ground station released, the Android and IOS version, but many users were not aware that they have to choose between the two BT versions, which allows you to use the tablet in the selected platform.  The boxes will be marked with IOS if iPad compatible.

Please see for some highlights, along with some of the tuning you may consider below.

tips couponcoPilots:  One of the key features of a Devo F12E transmitter, the CoPilot Mode, 2 pilots on a Tali H500 hexacopter. Very often you may find it difficult to fly and film at the same time, the Devo F12E allows you to turn any programmable Devo or compatible transmitter into a second transmitter for a CoPilot to share responsibilities. In other words, one person can be flying and the other person can be the camera man. Typically on a Search and Rescue mission, a SAR team will also consist of the pilot, sensor operator and the spotter.

tips couponProps synchronization:  Even though it is not a issue,  you may find the props not starting up at the same time when the throttle is below 10%   You can make this minor change if you prefer to have them trim and proper!.  We will put up a video up shortly, but here is a intro on getting connected to  Mission Planner https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTyvcHKNHys

 

  • Connect to Mission Planner
  • choose Full Parameter List
  • Set THR_MIN as 130
  • Set MOT_SPIN_ARMED as 0
  • [Write] Parameters to save

THR_MIN will make the motors spin when the throttle stick is just above zero (i.e. just above the deadzone at the bottom of the throttle stick).

MOT_SPIN_ARMED was designed to spin the props slowly when armed. It is a visual design, to signal to the pilot the aircraft is armed, be alert, don't forget. If you don't have an On Screen Display (OSD) installed, this can also be useful when you are flying a large model or may be standing at a distance to not be able to look at the LED lights. You can choose to turn it down or turn it off. So the original Scout was set to spin

How to stop stop your G3D rattling:  Depending on your setting, instead of Aux 5, you may need to adjust Aux 6, following the same principles.

Scout x4 was named after our front scout aircrafts that recce the unknown grounds, before a ground search and rescue crew is initiated.  We survey the grounds for potential areas of interest and potential dangers to be noted.
