Using Android 4.4.4, anyone else have the App working properly with this version?

Hi I'm running 4.4.4 and the app is working without any problems.

I can appreciate how smooth and high quality is the display encoder-roller
I can't say the same of my futaba radios which are made in china I also hate touch screens this is why I a consider the VBAR radio for the future

there will be an airplane version ( before end of the year ? ) but I don't know if they will introduce the airplane software into the radio or it will be another design just for fixed wings

After having a Tx with a touch screen, I couldn't imagine not having it. That alone would rule out the VBar Tx for me, and then there is the price. I wonder if they will charge for upgrades to the Tx and Rx? I'm surprised they haven't implemented an annual fee.

I think they are driving to the annual fee most companies are.

I don't think it will ever be for planes, as it has no trim controls. They think the auto trim in the VBAR has made them obsolete.

I think trims will become obsolete in the long run ... because there are more and more gyros for airplanes

Next step is to try other blades.
Replacing the blades did it. Worst of the shakes are gone. Now it remains to understand why the blades are so critical. And on another 450 with a CopterX head and a yellow Kbar these blades are fine. The problematic 450 has a HK head. This 450 also flies fine now but obviously needs the right blades.

I have used one 450 thrust for the X3 since I received it, the included Gaui one was of less quality than the Tarot.

Another in a stock 450 pro 3200rpm for about 80 flights.

I just purchased another one for the 450 v2 to replace the HK hub.

Yeah, it's a good unit, and good to know it fits the X3.
