Great! That's the only serial option I have with the Hitec, ATM.

Thanks for letting us know, Scott.

Something odd is happening with the vibration log.



Most of the log entries don't have a max vibration value. Is this normal? It never used to do this.

I think they only add that level to the index when it is over a certain level. Probably what robird thinks is too high and should be looked at.

I have a question that, from manual page the RS/GainPts/AX port is connect to Receiver channel 5 and 6, how can you connect all things(channel 5,6 + RPM sensor) into one port??

You can only use the RPM sesnor (and the Governor) when you run the G31 with satelite(s) rather than a full receiver. When you run the G31 with satelites you don't use the 3 into 1 lead.

I'm not sure how this pans out for the latest software (with the single-line receiver) announced yesterday, but it is certainly the case for the Spektrum satelite that I am using on my latest G31

Are you talking about the 2.4Ghz A-FHSS Compatible 5CH Micro Receiver (Hitec Minima compatible) from HobbyKing? Becareful using that in PPM mode because it's PPM signal is not that "pure" and you might experience some servo twitch once a while.

You should be happy when you sees this, that means your heli is super smooth without any noticeable vibrations.

Yes, that was the one I was talking about. Thanks for letting me know.

All you need is a Satelite and a RPM Sensor, but yes extra expense

Ok - after tuning everything mechanically as perfect as I could get, I found that if I set my tx gyro gain at 100%, and the dials on the g31 at 2 o'clock, the tail holds like a rock with no wag. The PC program shows my true avcs at 127. (gently) flew her around the yard, did a few rolls but nothing fancy.

I'm assuming it's ok to run like this? I was under the impression that I wouldn't be able to run it that high.

Is this also the case for the 8CH full range RX or just the 5CH?

If you have the rudder gain set to max it's probably going to cause wagging when the tail is put under stress like in a hard climb or fast sideways or tail first flight.

The only way I've ever been able to get the tail perfect is to center the neutral position at 0 degrees. For some reason the tail only seems to work well when the pitch is equal in both directions. If it's not then it causes all sorts of problems. And while the manual says that centering the slider leads to the CW stop being softer than the CCW stop in my experience it's the exact opposite of this. A centered slider makes for similar CW and CCW stops while a tail set up for rate mode makes the CCW stop much harder than the CW stop.

No testing has been done on the 8CH yet.
