Important reading about the Vbar governor:

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=601719

The electric defaults are too high for big helis, it needs to be more like 15-20 rather than 25-30 as the software defaults suggest. The lower gain is also easier on your ESC.

On my Xtreme 600 lowering the gov gain to 15 and raising the collective and cyclic add to 40 finally eliminated the twitch in hover and tail kick that has plagued it since I replaced the Robird with a GV8000. I don't even need to increase the tail precomp above the default of 22 anymore.

Im doing final setup up on my trex 500 with kbar / vstabi and got a surprice when im on Cyclic setup: Cyclic trow in vstabi. After pressing Start position, then Measure, then to my surprise i see my rotor move to minus 8 not pluss 8 as it normally do...

I was having trouble with a 450 bogging badly when trying aileron tic tocs but could just about manage elevator ones. I was going to ask here for advice but on suggestion for a friend, lowered the agility from max 120 down to 95. It made them actually possible with ok collective management of my Fubar 3S and then lowering the style slider to minimum transformed the cyclic fluidity too.

So if anyone is maxing out that agility slider thinking above 100 is working for them, might be worth lowering a touch. It was flying well before but this really helped. Is there anything else I can do to increase agility on the cyclic without being inefficient and inducing more bogging?
Trex 450 - fbl style slider from 90 down to 60 (4 min 39 sec)

Do any units support the use of the vcontrol radio? Basically can any of the units(kbar, sbar, fubar) be updated to 6.0?

No unfortunately you can not update the FW since they are not real vbars.

There was also a rumour (not sure if it was ever confirmed) that if you try to update the firmware in your K-bar, that Mikado's software would brick it...

I am quite sure it is not just a rumour, the not real vbars could have an adapted FW e.g. to work with different Gyros, so if you flash here the newest one (if you anyway are able to get the V6 which is not in public available) than you will brick your FBL...

I think it was always clear, that you will be never able to update a kbar fubar or any other not real vbar....
