Hi Mike, thanks for the advice but you are using 'local slang' and I don't get it. Could you enlighten my knowledge?

PTERN - apologies, it is very rude of me There is an English saying about "turns on a sixpence" meaning very quickly (a sixpence was a very small UK coin about the size of a 5 cent coin). The "local slang" is Cockney Rhyming slang - again an old english (London) slang whereby things are called by a rhyme of their name - e.g. stairs are called "apples and pairs" or wife is called "traouble and strife". "Septic" is cockney for an American, just having a little fun with you guys - hope it caused no offence

I've clicked around in this thread for a while and haven't found what I'm looking for so I'll just go ahead and ask...

Got my USB adapter and John's software all installed. I can get it connected and make changes, once I click "transmit config" can I then just unplug the heli and go? Just looking for some basic directions here.

Also, can I fly, land...and without unplugging the battery hook up the USB, launch the program and make changes?

Sorry if this has been posted before, I can't find it. I'm sure it's in this massive and awesome thread somewhere!

And thanks JohnNZ!!

Yes. I would suggest that when you do make any changes, you also save them in a new .ini file, which can be a handy reference.

With .ini files, there is a slightly unexpected behaviour, however, which you should be aware of. With the heli connected, if you load an .ini file, it won't reset the controller to the settings in the .ini file until you click on "Force Update".

If you change any of the settings, however, it will effectively transmit all the settings in the .ini file, with the changes you just made, to the controller - without you clicking on the "Force Update" button.

Yes! Isn't it great! I generally don't take my laptop to the flying site (even though I use a data-logging ESC, and do at least one flight with a keychain camera!) so I use the program box.

The part you left out is that "Septic" is short for "Septic Tank" as in "Smelly American". Guess it sounds better when whistled through a big gap in ones teeth...

Sweet, blue-tooth link on the Gyro! Good find indeed BF.

This thing is starting out to be like the turnigy9x.... Community based upgrade goodness.
I perhaps we get to flash our own firmware in later on?

Hi Mike, It's good to know slangs from diiference area of the globes. When I first came to Oz, one of my friend asked me: 'can you give me a hand?" I quickly said "NO" then only found out he was asking me to help him to carry a heavy box. After he explained to me, both of us fell off laughing and yet we still falling off laughing when I mention it.
Nope, no offence at all.
