Re: Mikado v bar

i just started using v-bar and am no expert. only used v5.3. but if in set up, it is ok. then i would think something in settings would change this for you. the cyclic settings could be raised. a tail is always in heading hold mode, returning to last stick position. it will only self center at power up. hope i am understanding your problem. was it working good and then this started or has it always been this way?

Re: Mikado v bar

If you've flown it successfully already then don't worry about it.
The swash will not move like a traditional flybarred heli as the servos are not directly controlled by your stick movements.
The FBL sensor is looking for movement when you give input and since it is stationary, there is none.
If you're still on vbar V4, it's worth upgrading to the latest V5.3 software for sure, it feels much better in the air.

Re: Mikado v bar

Not going to lie here, but i have never flown a V-Bar yet, however i was lent one from a buddy a mini pro blue v-bar. He said give it a shot. Also lent me a AR7200BX while mine was sent away.. After dialing in my AR7200, im still convinced i could do better, but then was reminded that i have the mini V-Bar, so when i get home i might give it a shot.

I have been told its FOOL proof and so easy to setup, we will see LMAO!! I hate software, im 100% hardware guy.

I really want to get my Goblin 500 dialed in with a ROCK solid tail & head. Eventually i want to get another HC3-SX since the Vbar is on loan for a while

BUT HEY, you never know maybe ill like the V-bar and buy one.. Personally i am attached to the "BAIL-OUT" on my goblin because im still learning banked turns and inverting etc etc..
