Specialising in Multicopters

& Custom Designed Drones





Multicopter R/C Technology is an Australian owned and

operated business which began in 2011 at the Gold Coast,



Business founder James has a long-standing history in

sourcing parts and passion for innovation in the Multicopter

Industry which has lead to the expasion of Multicopter R/C

Technology Australia wide.


Together with Executive Seller Brian from Mackay Queensland, Multicopter R/C Technology can assist you to create the

perfect drone for your needs; commercial or recreational.    


Multicopters come in all shapes, forms, and sizes.

Ranging from aerial photography, agriculture, energy,

utilities, mining, construction, real estate, news, media,

film production, FPV racing and fishing.


The possibilities are endless!

Multicopter R/C Technology recommend that the gains are a good starting point to investigate if you are experiencing any problems with your drone.  Here are some common troubleshoot methods:


* If you are flying a new drone without a camera or gimble; the gains may already be too high. 

* If you have a light disc loading (light weight multi-rotor) you may be over-propped.

When this happens, it is more difficult to correct the gains. 

* If it does not oscillate: gains are set too high

* If it wobbles on decent: gains are set too low.

* With a heavier disc loading (heavier Multicopter) you have a

wider variance of gain settings of which the aircraft will fly well in.

However, keep in mind it will always have a slight wobble upon fast descent, 

regardless of how your gains are set; as you are flying through your prop wash.

It is not recommended to descend too fast or at an angle.


The attitude gains control how the aircraft reacts to stick movements. High gains

will react fast (overreacts), and low gains will react slow. The lower gains

are similar to adding expo to a traditional transmitter. 


Basic gains are how your multi-rotor levels itself, and the attitude

gains are like stick sclaing. If using the Naza software; there is a loop.

In short- there are two sets of values:

1) How the multi-rotor actually is (in position and angle)

2) How the multi-rotor should be (according to your stick inputs)  


 Gains Setting Tips & Troubleshooting






Basic gains control how hard the multi-rotor will try to reach 2 from 1, by itself.


*If the gain is too high, it's trying too hard and will overshoot 2.

It then comes back, once again tries too hard, overshoots and begins oscillating.


*If the gain is too low, it's slow to move from 1 to 2 and will

also overshoot 2. This is because it does not react fast

enough to stop.


Your propeller size, pitch and weight of the aircraft will affect how you should set your

gains. The altitude where you fly from can have an effect on how you set your gains.


*Carbon fibre props are going to need different gains than plastic props

(even if the propeller has the exact same pitch and diameter).


Making a small change such as a different manufacturer of the propellers

can have dramatic results. This is why our products are most reliable,

efficient and have been tried and tested for best quality and 



Every Multicopter is going to be a little different to fine tune, however

with our great customer service, many years experience and a

passion for innovation, the team at Multicopter R/C

Technology can assist you through your journey of creating,

building and callibrating your perfect drone. 

 Gains Setting Tips & Troubleshooting




                                                                                                                     1) Always charge at 1C or less with a Lipo charger:

                                                                                                                      *2 cell 1250mah is charged at 7.4volts, 1.2amps

                                                                                                                      *3 cell 2200mah is charged at 11.1volts, 2.2amps.

                                                                                                                       Heat kills more Lipos, and a faster charge generates

                                                                                                                       more heat. Even if the manufacturer allows a higher

                                                                                                                       rate of charge, stay at the 1C rate. **Note each cell is

                                                                                                                       3.7 Volts.


                                                                                                                    2)Balance Lipos often. It may be slightly time consuming

                                                                                                                    but they will last longer. We recommend to balance

                                                                                                                    after every day at the flying field and just prior to flying

                                                                                                                        (the night before etc).





*Always supervise a charging Lipo battery

*Always use the balance charging (balance plug)

*Always use a Lipo-safe bag

*Always dispose of Lipo batteries properly

*NEVER short a Lipo battery

*NEVER try to use damaged or puffed up/expanded lipo batteries

*NEVER over-charge a Lipo, it will reduce the life span,

and may cause safety issues
