You HAVE to redo throttle calibrations as the endpoints now make provision for AUTO ROTATION in a different way than before. Especially if running in FIXED ENDPOINTS.

Same way you calibrated it the first time, not sure of the procedure.

I'm going to let some one who knows how to actually do it respond to your question, im not really sure how the calibration for the vbar works or why its even needed. But the basic idea is to get the high stick to go into programming mode, and low stick to arm the esc. What ever the vbar does could completely conflict with what your trying to do, but i see no reason why it would, or why it needs to do anything with your throttle ch. to begin with.

well i did it on my 450 sport.. im running a CC 45 and i had no problem programming the throttle like the video said.

im just confused on how to do it with the vbar unit hooked up as well. on the vbar the throttle endpoints are gonna change to calibrate throttle on the vstabi software..
