Airplane mode, th change rate of 10. Fixed end points.

Good news is 4.01 has been awesome for 100+ flights using vBar gov for me. 120HV, Quantum 4530, Goblin pulling 10KW peaks.

The waiting is over as far as I'm concerned. The next release will just improve the soft start a little bit.

Thanks bro! That is great news and I was hoping to hear it. I finally got my hands on a scorpion 520LE so I am expecting similar results. Thanks again!

** update**

Okay, I have the Castle Phase sensor and V-bar 5.3 Pro working very well...

Soft start is awesome and the auto rotation with the motor stopped with the Castle Bail out is not only easy to setup but it also works very well.

I am looking forward to talking with MR Mel when he returns from his get away so I can go over my testing... More to come...the sensor is very slick and it is plug and play with the V-Bar... also it is not to picky about the voltage...

Great news. Any update when we can get our hands on the ESC beta firmware?

It would be best if they decide to form a committee too fully study the situation are write a report in a few months LOL.

Well, got my Ballistic set-up with the CC 160 and HW sensor. Seems to be working on the bench, limits are -66 and 66 on the sliders. Nothing left to do but fly it...

Flew my Ballisitc today. I have a little tail chatter that I think is from too high a gain. I am at 37 right now. What is everyone else at?

I got quite a few flights in today as I am on vacation...

I got the V Bar GOV working very well with Castle Soft Start and Castle Auto-rotation ... I am stoping the motor completely and the recovery is very smooth and it locks right back in on the Head Speed.

I hope to test the final sensors next week... so it is just about there... the performance is very good and with bank switching you can change the GOV Gain when changing Head Speeds... You can also tune each bank for different Head Speeds... I have 1600 to 2000 set up and it is pretty darn good.

As I have not flown V-Bar in some time Mr Mel's videos have been awesome...

I will be in the office on Monday and I am asking them to release the firmware... Thanks.
