Lightbulb Resources and Information for users of Tarot ZYX, CX 3X1000, ALZRC 3GYS, Helicox TG-1

Hi Everyone,

I've recently stumbled upon all the threads in this forum related to these inexpensive FBL controllers. This thread is intended to point you guys to a bunch of resources that have been growing ever since these systems came to the market.

Note that the first generation of all these controllers seem to be very similar, if not identical, and information regarding one can easily be translated and applied to the others. So, for example, if you have a 3x1000, read thru the ZYX posts as well.

As far as I'm concerned the premier forums/threads related to these FBL systems are the ones linked below. You'll get a lot of info by reading these and probably more immediate help by posting to any of these threads:

Looks like I can't edit my first post anymore and I found another interesting solution.

I almost bricked my zyxs when I tried to use a satellite:
1) updated to 3.0.2 firmware
2) connect to the USB software
3) enter setup mode, select one of the dsm2 satellite type (with the satellite already bound to the TX previously).
4) exit the USB software
5) Power back up, zyxs doesn't talk to the satellite properly.
6) Now the USB software cannot connect to the zyxs, so I cannot switch to other receiver types
to see if it works.

Some how playing around for over an hour I managed to get it to connect so I switched receiver
type to full receiver.

This post makes me want to try using a satellite again, but I still worry about the catch-22 of not
picking the correct receiver type, then not being able to connect to the USB software to reset
the receiver type.

Is there a solution to this dilemma?

thanks
