AR7100 + V-BAR setup for 8V to cyclic servos

Posted 04-30-2009 at 08:05 PM by WillJames

Fireup has done a great tutorial for using the Spektrum AR7100 and AR7100R with the V-BAR unit.

He has uploaded the info to the Mikado V-BAR English Wiki Link Here ---->

Here is the thread Fireup started on HeliFreak about what you need to do to run the 7100. Thank you Kevin!!

Original thread contents below, thank you Kevin

Here's a wire harness I came up with to use V-Bar with AR7100 and run 8V. Because the Tail Channel on the AR7100 is on a different bus voltage, it can not be combined with the 8V bus voltage of the V-Bar and cyclic servos. And because 5.2V is required to run the tail servo, the tail output from the V-Bar needs to be brought back down to 5.2V.

Also note: if you want to use the Aux channel for bank selection the middle wire (red) has to be disconnect for cable between the Rx and V-Bar unit.
