Voltage 500 3D Manual Addendum
The Voltage 500 3D has a new flight control board that can accept PWM inputs directly from the receiver without the
use of an adapter.

Flight Controller Connections
The S-Bus cable must be connected to the receiver so it can power the flight controller. On a 6 channel receiver,
connect the S-Bus cable to channel 6. If a 5 channel receiver is used, a “y” adapter will be needed to connect the RX
Power and the S-Bus cable.
Download the latest version of the Voltage 500 3D app from http://www.helimaxrc.com/quadcopters/hmxe0864voltage500/index.html and click on the Software Download link. Please follow the directions in the manual for installing
the driver and using the app. After the flight controller is connected to the app, select the “Conventional” receiver type
in the drop down window if the PWM cables are being used. Please refer to the manual for recommended settings for
the controls and the Flight Mode switch/switches,
Note: The default gains have proven to work well with both 3S and 4S batteries. Higher ail/ele gains can be problematic
in creating constant hunting of the throttle.

Reverse channels 2, 3, 4 and 5 in transmitter
Connect the satellite(s) to the ports on the top of the flight controller
If the RX cable is already connected to the Flight Controller, unplug it
Connect the USB cable and open the Voltage 500 3D app.
Select the proper receiver type
Click on the “Binding” button
Unplug USB cable to power down the flight controller. Wait a few seconds then plug it back in. The satellites will
flash when ready for binding
Turn on the transmitter while holding bind button/switch
Release the bind button/switch when the LEDs on the satellites are steady
Check all controls and switches for proper direction with the app
Remove the USB cable and connect RX cable to the bottom input pins on flight controller with black wire on the
left.
