Missing parameters in Motors Tab in QGroundControl

I am using a Pixhawk Mini with PX4 pro-Stable Release v1.13.0 and QGroundControl Version v4.2.3. In the Vehicle Setup → Motors Tab I only have access to Motors Setup, while in the Actuator Configuration and Testing Page in PX4 User Guide Actuator Configuration and Testing | PX4 User Guide there are more parameters like Geometry and Actuator Outputs. Also, the name of the tab is different, I have a Motors Tab while the Documentation Page has an Actuators Tab

In the Airframe Tab, I selected the Generic Hexarotor x geometry and did all the sensors calibration (even though the screenshot appears as not). All I want to do is configure the hexacopter’s rotors with a fixed tilt angle of 20 degrees but I do not have access to those parameters.

Can you guide me on which version of the Software I should use to access these parameters or something I did not check?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,
you need to go to “System” and activate the Actuator allocation yourself (it’ll be default in the future likely).
So “vehicle setup → parameters → system” and there enable Actuator allocation.
