Default Vbar 6 to 5.3

Can the software be downgraded? It is my understanding that 6.0 will work without control but not yet.

Yes there is a method for V6 to revert back to 5.3. Currently V6 is only for Vcontrol.

You would use the same Vbar recovery procedure you use to recover from a bad flash.

You need to load the recovery file into the VBAR from the VBAR page with your the VBAR PC software -> http://www.vstabi.info/en/node/397 .
After you load this file into the VBAR, you can load the VBAR version 5.x as the normal version Which one you had before over the PC software to run VBAR with the normal TX.

And how you load the file in the Vbar?
The usb stopped working at version 6.

Just connect the vbar to the PC as normal, load up the VStabi software, the USB in in top bar will be green but it will say no connection in red next to it which is fine.

Then click on file then Firmware Upload, locate the recovery file then it should start to load it to your vbar, if it doesn't start within 20 seconds or so just unplug the power to the vbar and plug it in again.

I have done this a few times but it doesn't always start to upload the file to the vbar , unplugging the vbar from the battery then plugging it in again will start the update.

If you don't own the VController then v6 is not available as an update as it only works with the VController.

Once you have purchased the controller then v6 is a free update plus it has the full pro functionality.

Thank you and I understand that, but buying /owning a vbar with a "pro" version. Which will work with other transmitters eventually. Now downgrading to a non pro 5.3 and having to buy pro again, it seems there might be a better way to do this.

I have a vbar silver with the vbar control sat combo with 6.0 installed. I am a few months out from getting a vcontrol. Maybe more with the holidays.

vbar silver line with express on it is $300
the silver line with the the RX is $360.
an RX is $80.so buy them together and save $20.

they didn't charge you for pro. 6.0pro is free, 5.3 pro is not.

6.0 pro is free if you have VControl for every VBAR you own…but you have to have VControl.
