Definitely the compensation direction on tail and elevator, roll might be the same. The piro compensation direction will also likely change as well as the direction for the collective>tail and cyclic>tail precompensation. It's really not all that hard, just verify stick inputs and compensation and make sure it works as expected. BTW, I've got both my ZYX's mounted upside down under the tail boom.

Wow 126 pages. I don't know which page this is so forgive me if it's already answered. But i just finished setting up my CX-3x1000 and it works fine but i don't know if i set the servo type right.

I got digital servos, but when i got to the part for the servo type, there must be three different digital tail servos in there. Which one am i supposed to pick?

Cool! I thought 1520 was a brand model or something.

Is there a difference between adjusting the tail gain from the gyro and adjusting it from the tx?

Not really. I think most people set it to 100 in the gyro and use reduced ATV's in the TX. You can see the effect by going into the "monitor" screen in the software, which will show the effective tail gain, normally around 36% or so in HH mode. If you use the conditions feature, you might set the TX to 100% and then set different gains in the gyro for each condition.

Hi John. I've found a bug in v1.22 that I hope you can fix. It's relating to the setup Servo Trim tab.

In this case I have ch1 reversed, but if I go straight to the Servo Trim tab, after connecting the heli or loading an ini file, the up/down collect trim arrows do not take into consideration that ch1 is reversed. I have to go to the Servo Rev tab and toggle the servo from reverse to normal and back to reverse, to get it to work correctly.

Thanks again for this excellent app.

David

Just found the Android app for the Bluetooth adapter!

http://www.0577mx.com/news_view.asp?clsid=15&id=270

I ordered the bluetooth adapter from OOModel on the 16th. I received an email from them on the 18th, saying that they didn't actually have it in stock yet, and would I like to backorder it, or refund the purchase. Since they asked so politely I decided to keep my order! The adapter was shipped on the 23rd, and I found this link to the .APK file today! I have yet to receive the adapter, and I'm not sure if it will work with my re-flashed CX-3X1000's, but I also have a ZYX-S on the way as well so that should at least work.

If it's the same version I tried recently, it's Chinese only. No English.

Just loaded the apps to my XT711, it is in Chinese, simplified characters. The interface of each setup step is very graphical as in PC software. Also, this apps supports S-BUS and Satellite Rx - same as v3.5. Very nice work; it will be excellent when characters are in English

I also noticed this bug when setting up my 450 a while back but I thought it was caused by my cross-flashed 3x1000 to ZYX 3.5.

It sounds good. Thanks for checking it out. Hopefully the English version will be available soon.
