no..... I would have to buy that update adapter to update the firmware wouldn't I ??
Do you think the updated firmware would make a difference with the ff flight issue on mine?

Has anyone here had the unstable ff flight and fixed or at least improved it by updating the firmware on the rx?

I pulled the trigger on the new version this morning from AC-RC Hobby for 177.00 shipped. If I remember right zadaw posted that it's his local hobby shop & that's how I found out about them. I just started for about a month now flipping & flying inverted with my MCP & it has been a blast. Once I get flipping & flying inverted more perfected I'll try it on the new version 120D02S when it gets here & then my three 3 axis ones, 1 Devo RX & 2 older Walkera RX's & compare the difference between the RX versions.

Walkera's site must be down for some reason.

Anyone happen to have a copy of the latest devo 8s software they could throw in dropbox for me to download?

I also had some trouble programming a new model into the Deviation firmware for the first time. What helped me was going to the Deviation forum, and downloading model config files uploaded by other users. There's a nice V120D02s one on there that will give you a basic setup that you can tweak to your liking.

I don't know about dropbox, but the files are not large. If you pm me your email address, I can pass them along.

This is good.
It's mounted on top of the boom holder with the FBL gyro mounted on the receiver tray (didn't want the gyro on the boom holder where it would get more vibrations). These pictures show it better.




The Plush 60A was supposed to be temporary untill the YEP80A I have backordered arrives which is why the wire isn't sleeved. It's become obvious now that won't be for a while so I've since sleeved the throttle wire properly. All of the wires between the RX and FBL are run though one sleeve with the plugs color coded. I've flown it pretty far out and flipped it without issues, I don't do hard 3D though. However at almost any angle at least one of the antennas is poking out from behind the frame somewhere.

Tarot 500 with a bunch of aftermarket upgrades added. Except for the lynxheli canopy locks and CF rudder pushrod which I added after those pictures and gorilla gear none were actually necessary. And those three are necessary even on a real Trex in my opinion. Especially gorilla gear, it will save you a lot in crash costs and repair times. If it gets bent up in a crash you can just toss it into boiling water for a minute and bend it back into shape.

I was at their shop yesterday and they definitely had the 6 axis V120D02S in stock. The last time I checked, they were retailing it for $160 and so you are getting a good deal. It is the first time they have shipped complete helis. They are also an authorized Tarot vendor. At least if your receiver gets broken, you should be able to access Walkera's repair service through them.

I am sure you will find learning 3D easier with the 6 axis V120D02S than either the 3 axis version.

edit....are there two versions of the devo rx out for the v120d02s? How do I tell which I have, is the rx model name different? Mine is the RX2636H-D

I tried out the 6 axis for about a month or two and finally took it out. I used it for a while in my V120D05 and it was no better. Too much pitch up and bucking on fast forward flight. I tuned the gyro pot in every which way with no improvment. I tend to not fly very level and the 6 axis was just not forgiving at all. It WANTS to be level all the time so for my flying style it didn't work. I found I was constantly fighting it and it made flips, rolls, and steep banking very difficult. The RX2622V-D (3 axis) is still the favorite with me. Now days I hardly crash unless I have a mechanical failure.
So far, it seems that the problems reported for the 6 axis version mainly appears in FFF. I have never flown full-speed FFF with it and this may explain why I haven't seen any problems. I suspect that if the heli settles on a constant speed for some time, the accelerometers will react much more than if you were flying small circuits with much more frequent input corrections. This is because flying at a fast constant speed is like hovering to the accelerometers. I have been experiencing the same sort of problems that you reported with my Master CP. However, the effect seems to be less when there is wind around as the heli gets pushed around more often. Otherwise, I find flying mild 3D much pleasant than with the 3 axis version.
