First your gyro menu, gov menu, whatever you're using to tell the DataPod/Vortex what channel to expect a gyro signal on, it must be tied to your flight mode switch in the transmitter. Only then will the DataPod/Vortex track the flight mode switch.

Default flight mode sync to governor values

Hurrah!! checked through tx manual, (JR DSX9ii) and of course found that with a raw model set up, I needed to enter Gyro Sens (Gyro Gain Function) and set to auto mode. Now seeing flight mode numbers in datapod.

Thanks for advice so far.............more may be sought!!

Good to hear!!

BTW, if your radio is like mine, the Gyro menu will only allow for three different values, therefore you will end up one short.

If you have a governor menu, it could allow for four different values. That's why I used the Gov menu instead.

Thanks Bob, my radio is the same and I'm using the governor menu like you. I also had to asign a different channel in the data pod to see the correct tx channel. All good now and working my way through the rest of your vids.....brilliant

Okay, glad to hear it's working now.

Also, the videos I made were before M3, so they don't cover some steps added afterward. Check this thread for a run-down on the additional steps for Swash Setup. You shouldn't have any problems with them.

A friend has suggested moving the futaba servo wheel balls in by one hole ( bls 451's), so will give that a go before proceeding.

Do you also have a very low value when setting your max collective? Moving the balls on your cyclic servos in one hole should help out both situations. Let us know how you make out with that.

I have just ordered new flybarless servo wheels (Align for Futaba) with two hole spacing, which the guys at the field use on their 700n's and acheive all the correct values in the Vortex. Will be next week before I get back in this and will advise outcome.

Those must be the Align 3G wheels. The inner holes worked great before the DFC head came out. Some guys running the DFC head have had to use even narrower spacing than that (being the DFC head design provides so much more blade deflection).

Let us know how it goes.

Bob,

Sorry, but I thought I had updated this earlier. New servo wheels fitted and all the numbers are now good and well within the required ranges. Just the governor set-up left to complete the basics and then test fly. Had good flying weather here recently and been away, so this has been on the back burner.

Regards

Charles
