Had first proper test flight today after ironing out some setup bugs - really pleased and looking forward to fine tuning now - posted video on how I set up Bank switching on the JR radio as a prelude to some inflight study of changing flight parameters

Default New video

Rather long electro-mechanical setup video of V-Stabi on the Logo 500 - to compress down to below 50MB lost a lot of screen resolution I'm afraid so don't expect fine detail of the program from the screen shots - if there is a demand I can break down into smaller higher res segments but this will act as a taster for a complete set up from scratch without using the plug-in:

Started series of higher res screen recordings of PC software set up for V-Stabi - same information as in Electromechanical Setup vid but software shots much more legible.

First off: V-Stabi PC setup software - overview wmv 23MB

Absolutely fabulous Videos!

I have a 5003D with the V-Stabi on order and this set of videos are perfect.

I appreciate your hard work and your willingness to share them.
