Step 2. Verify RX Channels

WARNING! 
Remove props and attach the antenna before verifying channel mapping.

 

 

To check that the bind was successful, connect RubiQ to INAV with the USB cable and attach her battery. Connect, and open the Receiver tab.

To check the channel map settings, throttle up and down, pitch forward and back, roll and yaw left and right and watch to see that the corresponding bars move on the screen.

Throttle

Pitch

Yaw

Roll

If the AUX 5 bar is active, this indicates the signal strength between RubiQ and the radio controller. It’s common for this bar to pulse back and forth.


Troubleshooting

If the channels aren’t mapped correctly (for example, the Roll bar moves in INAV when you raise the throttle on the radio), switch the Channel Map to TAER1234 (Throttle, Aileron, Elevator, Rudder), press save and test the sticks again. If your bars aren’t moving in INAV, then the bind was not successful. Return to Step 1 of the Configuration Guide and rework through the binding process.

If you continue to experience issues, check that you’re operating on the correct version of INAV. You must download INAV directly from the rubiq.edventures.com, rather than the Chrome Web Store to avoid the automatic updates that with make INAV incompatible with RubiQ’s firmware. Two options are currently available: RubiQ’s delivered prior to April 2018 have separate connectors for the motors and ESC’s and should be operating on INAV version 1.6.2

RubiQ’s prior to April 2018 = INAV version 1.6.2

Troubleshooting

If the channels aren’t mapped correctly (for example, the Roll bar moves in INAV when you raise the throttle on the radio), switch the Channel Map to AETR1234/Default (Aileron, Elevator, Throttle, Rudder) for the Q X7, press save and test the sticks again.
