It's such a shame that the Robird FBL code basically got tossed into a dumpster. The unit "just worked" (unlike the Vbar which requires a lot of tuning) and with some additional PID tuning parameters it would have been perfect.

The thing that really confuses me is that the original owner didn't want to sell the hardware and code to Robird USA instead preferring to just let it rot.

Yes, it is quite the shame. I would have liked to see some bluetooth capability, the ability to use the governor with a full Rx, and User defined RPM ranges for the governor.

Setup question

We are trying to setup a gift 450 with a G31.

Today during the setup, the TX inputs all show the correct direction and +/-100 ranges on Setup - Tab (page) 0.

Stepping through the pages, when we get to Tab2, the swash tilts "Backwards". We could not get our minds around how to change this to forward, or if that was important.

So we finished the setup and while holding the heli - ready to fly, and tilting it - it was obvious the swash is backwards. Not counter-acting a roll, but tilting toward the roll direction.

So we are back to thinking we have screwed up a step. Should the swash tip forward on Tab2, and if so, do we change the reverse options on Tab3 to get it to do so?

If the elevator servo pin is at the front, you need to check the checkbox. If it is at the back of the swash, it needs to be unchecked.

Then on tab 3, the swash will move to the up position. If not all servos move up, then you must tick the checkbox to reverse that servo.

You also need to go to tab 6, and select the proper installation direction of the unit.

Once all of these parameters are set properly, you will notice the correct swash corrections when going back to the Welcome screen to save the settings to the unit.
