How do you use the param files from the download site.

I see that on the download site there are param files that list all the setting used to fly a given platform.  As there is one for the platform I'm using (3DR Hex), I'd like to try it, but I don't know where/how to implement the file.Do I put it someplace to be selected through the mission planner.Thanks in advance for the help.See More
