# Standard Configuration
This section covers the common software configuration and calibration needed for most PX4 vehicles.
Before starting you should Download QGroundControl (opens new window) and install it on your desktop computer. Then open the QGC application menu ("Q" icon in the top-left corner) and choose Vehicle Setup in the Select Tool popup:
# Configuration Steps
# Firmware/Vehicle Selection
# Motor/Actuator Setup
# Sensor Calibration
Note: Setup for optional sensors and specific hardware is provided in Flight Controller Peripherals.
# Manual Control Setup
# Safety Configuration
- Autotune (Recommended on vehicles and frames that support it)
The video below shows most of the calibration process (it uses an older version of QGroundControl, but most of the process is unchanged).
If you need help with the configuration you can ask for help on the QGroundControl Support forum (opens new window).
