Default Shafted

I think we have all been shafted by Thunder Tiger. I am sure it has been over a year since the FBL got released and still there have been no updates on it. Guess they just took what they could get and to think I bought 3 of these units.

Updates for what? I have 3 and will be getting more in the future. The G-T5 is performing perfectly in all three heli's and I couldn't ask any more of it!
Exactly what do you expect, a lifetime of handouts?

I'm sure it has only been out for about three months now!

No I don't expect a lifetime of handouts and it has been out coming up a year now. First of all it does not work well with my tail servo (binding it on start up) and Thunder Tiger said they would be adding a gov to it when it was first released there are a few other problems with it.

G-T5 is about 8 months out and your problems are caused by your servo, not by G-T5. It is possible to bypass these problems in unit but the cause is still your servo. No one from TT officially promised governor.

It will be nice to have G-T5 update to fix small issues, but i think that G-T5 will not be frequently updated, if at all.

My tail servo also binds during the startup process (DS520). Are you saying there is some kind of solution to this within the GT5 settings?

Well, within this year there will be an update with new functions. No exact date, yet. Published by the PR-Manager TT Europe on a German forum a few minutes ago. http://www.rc-heli.de/board/showpost...77&postcount=6

I would guess just like the ÁBeast via seperate USB interface which will be connected via servo cable into one of the connectors of the GT5.
