Wondered if anyone is using the HC3SX in the Spektrum mode, that is with just the satellite receivers.
If so do you have any comments re this system.

Can't comment yet. I have one I plan on setting up like so. Is it for scale? Plz let me know what you experience if you do the setup.
Thanks....

It's only work, if you would rather be doing something else...

Spektrum satellites work fine on the HC3-SX. There are many people flying the system with this setup. Firmware v.114 supports DSM2 and DSMX.

Thanks for the replies, is there anything in particular I should watch out for with this system?
Doesnt seem right not having a "receiver"as such on board

Wasted lots of time trying to set it up as a receiver, in less I have missed something, it is only good on electrics as there is no support for any aux, such as a gov. It does seem like a very nice unit but with very poor instructions/explanations. At this price, it should at least be equal to a Vbar or SK720 on additional ports, software and instructions but sadly it seems to be lacking. Just unwired all the neat wiring and started to throw in a receiver.

If you are using a JR or Spektrum radio, follow this post for the proper settings in the "1) RC" tab after selecting Spektrum/JR

There are 8 channels supported when using Spektrum DSMX satellites. Output 2 on the HC is typically used to control an external gov. You can assign Output 2 to any of the 8 channels. It is a very flexible system.

Good news, please point me to the documentation on this.
I know you can have a big influence on them, can you push them for better software and instructions?
It does not seem reasonable that you need to reference the software, written instructions and forums gathering bits of information from each in an attempt to get it set up.

The current crop of software from Skookum and Vbar is self explanatory so that no other resource is often needed.

And there is a setup wizard, which is really easy to follow. So what?! Is it really that hard to click "begin" and simply do what is said?

In case, please get more precise on what you miss, not only complaining in general. That doesn't really help anyone!
Thanks.

And a Merry Christmas to all of you !!! :-)

Joachim HC - No problem, please PM me with your email and I will gladly send suggestions, I want others to succeed, not fail!

BTW - my first flight with the HC3SX was yesterday with the receiver installed and all went very smooth. Now I need to play with the SL.

wow, slow down and take a deep breath and maybe think a little Before ya post, it's very easy to make a statement like that when you know the software inside and out ! JMHO.....

and to top it off a lot of people know what "push to start" means but are unsure what "the butten is to start push" means !

I have to agree about the instructions , they suck !!! I used my knowledge from the vbar to setup my HC3SX. The instructions are like a dog chasing it's tail. But I managed. It all makes sense once you reach that point. Seems relatively simple at that point. Still have to setup the bail out mode then a shot of warm weather and I'll try it out. That HF link is kickazz !!

I never used the manual. Everything you need to know is in the software and there are popup baloons that tell you what the sliders will and won't do. The Setup wizard is very straight forward. I own 5 of these now and they are simply the most stunning FBL units on the market. I also use mine on electrics and nitros with no issues.

TM, I agree. I just skimed the manual and mainly just followed the setup wizard. Only took me ~20 minutes this morning to complete, including updating the firmware to 114 and binding to my 2x spektrum sat's/DX7.

Best Xmas present I got this year, lol!

Xmas Cheers,

That's the point: you don't need to know the software. That's what you seem to not understand.
Click "Start Setup" (that's what it actually states on my PC ) and follow the short and brief statements there. Please get serious and honest: this is not a pain at all, and even the Germ-lish should not be that hard in this part. Anything else?

Happy New Year !!!!

i for one have never said that and in fact just three post above said
i found it pretty easy to setup myself
is that "serious and honest" enuff for you ?

EDIT
i guess i was a little taken back by this
So what?! Is it really that hard to click "begin" and simply do what is said?
now i know germans like to not mence words and be straght to the point i just think that for someone on the "HeliCommand Support Team" that maybe that could have been said shall we say "friendlier" or more "diplomatic"

like i said before i had no problems with the setup or the manual but if i was one of those people i would have been shall we say "angry" if i was having issues with understanding how to setup my new $500.00 fbl unit and someone from "Support" through a statement like that out there.

the HC3-SX is a great fbl controller i just think that some people don't think the manual is quite good as it could be, thats all.......
