Just to let you know, the latest batch of Hi-model ESC's (same as the YEP) I just received from Hobby Dream, don't have the dual leads either.

What a shame. I noticed the PCB is slightly different, so no way to solder on our own program lead. Bummer

One of my program leads stopped working suddenly. can still program it with the Rx lead however. Bit strange. have not started the investigation. Might be a tight tie wrap that smothered the cable.

Hi guys, when I crashed my Tarot 500, the ZYX stopped working correctly. I bought another ZYX but got the ZYXs model this time. What I was wondering is, can I use only the satellite from my ar7010 receiver in this new ZYXs? If I can,what about the now 2 less antennas? Will it now loose reception easier? I'd like to loose that bunch of wires it has.
Thanks

I haven't taken the step to eliminate the main Spektrum RX on three ZYX-S, but you'll probably hear a lot of success stories (I haven't heard of any crashes resulting from just using a sat RX yet)

Personally, I do not and would not fly any heli 500 or bigger with just one Sat. I have a full Rx+1 sat on the Protos 500 (with a ZYCX-3x1000), and 2 sats on the Pantera 600 (MSH Brain).

Yes, disappointing, but still the best ESC for the money, at the moment.

Hi guys, im not a 3d flyer, i have two 450 with tarot zyx, i need to know your opinion on what is the best form to set the cyclic pitch usin tarot, and hao many degrees is good for scale and sport flyr?!?!

Also, what is the correct form to set the swashplate level and set the swash pitch limit with flybarless? because the head is in constant corrections when i touch or move the heli, you have any form of disable the gyro correction in Zyx-s with 3.5 firmware?? thnaks for help

Sorry, there's no way to disable the gyro. Just avoid moving the heli during setup and if you do move it, give it 30 seconds for the swashplate to decay back to center.

As for cyclic pitch range, it's really a personal preference. Any value from 8 degrees up to max available on your bird will work. Just make sure there's no binding at extreme inputs. I run 9* cyclic on my 450 and 9.5 on the 500 and 10* on the 600.

Low gains?

For stopping the controller from correcting movements when you're setting up, you could set your gains to a really low value - but make sure to reset them before trying to fly the heli. You might even save the setup settings to a .ini file.

I was under the impression you can stop the gyro function if you use the stick method of programming, then once set you can move back to PC programming.
