PC Software for Setup/Programming the CX-3X1000, 3GYS, TG-1, ZYX etc.

I've just finished the testing of the PC software for the CX-3X1000 and 3GYS (patched ZYX software). As far as I can see it all works well, even all of the PC setup screens.

CX-3X1000 & CX-3X2000 firmware v2.1: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=2304

You just have to unzip it to it's own folder, like the Tarot/CopterX software. I've included all of the files that come with the Tarot/CopterX version.

Currently this has only been tested with the Tarot USB link:

Catch up eHirobo!

Good stuff! :cool:

Just ordered the Tarot USB adapter.

#4 ewoodcox Jan 05, 2012 06:40 PM

very cool :cool: is there an advantage to using this over the programming box?

It's cheaper, very easy to use and makes setup much easier as well. :)

#6 danger_mouse Jan 05, 2012 07:41 PM

This software/USB link will be much better for setting up on the bench.

I can see I will still throw the programming box in my pocket for quick tuning adjustments when flying.

#7 beenflying Jan 05, 2012 07:59 PM

Yes, the program box is nice for taking to the flying field, unless you're happy to take a laptop. Also for $5 plus shipping (for the USB link), it helps to make this gyro a good low cost option as well, without the limitations of the Tx programming.

BF, thanks for your effort and time to patch
this software to work with the CX-3x1000.

Enjoy your flights !!

#9 tdriver Jan 06, 2012 12:12 AM

#10 Zr_Flyer Jan 06, 2012 12:30 AM

The original Tarot software (so hopefully BF's version) has the ability to save the set-up to disk so you can keep a back-up of known good set-ups.

BF - thank you very much for this.

Cheers,
Mike

You're welcome, guys. To answer a couple of questions:
1/ Yes, saving/loading the model setup as a file works fine.
2/ Not sure about the firmware update, but can't see why not at this stage.

My ALZRC 3GYS PC software is now released (patched ZYX version). See the first post for the download.
