In the software, click on the "Advanced" settings button. Here's a screen shot from John_NZ's version 1.21 software.



When you click on the down arrow to the right of the "Aux Function" box, you are presented with two choices - either "Switch Heading Mode" whereby flipping your gear switch will select between HH and rate mode, or "Switch Condition" whereby flipping the switch will switch between Condition 1 and Condition 2.

ZYX-S firmware upgrade to version 3.50.rar(only use in ZYX-S)
http://www.kingwjg.com/zyx/zyx-s%203.50.rar

1.Optimize the heading hold control, eliminate bouncing when spin brake.
2.Optimize the main rotor control, eliminate swing while tic toc.
3.Accelerate the response speed of joystick, so that the helicopter can follow your hands better.
4.Optimize the pirouette compensation to make pirouette flight more stable.
5.Improve the joystick dead band setting to make stick control smoother.


First Flight Attention with 3.50 Version:
1.During first flight, if there are hunting or swing with you helicopter, please decrease the D gain on corresponding axis first.
2.When tail servo is on neutral point, set the tail pitch to be approximately 8°in the direction that compensates the main rotor torque by adjusting the linkage length.
3.If the brake speed of left and right pirouette are different, please adjust the "Deceleration L" or "Deceleration R". The higher parameter value, the break will be faster.

Firmware upgrade instruction
1.Connect the ZYX gyro to PC by ZYX USB adapter,click "Connect ZYX",make sure it succeed.
2.Open the Firmware in ZYX PC software.
3.Keep the PC,USB adapter and ZYX gyro connecting.Power off ZYX gyro,press "SET" button of gyro and power on.
4.The red lamp is flashing,click "Upgrade" button to start upgrade,the ZYX gyro will restart after successful upgrade.
5.Please make sure your gyro is Tarot ZYX,otherwise the gyro will be damaged.The ZYX gyro does not need to be setup again.

I'm trying to upgrade my ZYXs to 3.5. I guess I have to install winzip? Is there any other way to download the program. I'm not a computer guy. When I tried to download winzip, it says I have to purchase it. Is that true?
Thanks guys, Its my first attempt to use only satellite in a Align Trex 25. DFC. I have 4 other ZYX in 450s and 500

Sounds you are still trying to open it with winzip. You'll have to right click on the file and open with 7zip.

I've never paid for winzip anyway myself, so you can extract the files & not have to pay for it. It's not blocking you from unzipping the files. Don't worry about it. It's like a continual free trial as far as I know.

If you are using Win XP or Win 7, the unzip and unrar should have been built-in to the Windows Explorer

Peter,

If you have just updated to 3.5 you need to drop our D on the Swash PIDs to 10 (both on Roll and Pitch PID).

Cheers,
Mike.

2Doggs, the file you are trying to open is a WinRar file, WinZip still does not open them, although 7zip will (i think). For info WinRAR will open all the compressed files I've seen.

PM me if you are still having issues.
