VBAR - DX18, how to change from Normal to Hold the tail?
Hi, I use a Spektrum DX 18 combined with VBar, I can not change the tail function from hold to normal directly from switch of the TX.
Can anyone tell me what I make wrong or missing?
On the TX, I can change the function and in the computer Vstabi 5.3 show that change, but the servo function remains the same. Also I can not change the sensitivity from TX, it change only from the computer.
Thank you for help and suggestions.

Wan,

If I'm understanding your question correctly, there are 2 ways to do this.

The first is to enable Bank Switching on the main VBar screen. On the far right side of the screen, pull the dropdown box labeled "Active Bank Selection" and select Bank 0/1/2/3.

Now, copy your Active bank into the remaining banks. Then, change the gyro gain setting each of the other banks to a different setting.

Such as:

Bank 0: Gyro Gain 60
Bank 1: Gyro Gain 65
Bank 2: Gyro Gain 70

Now, by using the switch that controls the GEAR channel, selecting another bank will change the Gyr Gain. You can switch banks in flight to immediately see the effect.

Second way is to select "Aux Gyro Gain" in the drop down, and use the values in the Aux channel to set the gain from the radio.

Is that what you needed?

Hi Slowpoke, first let me thank you for helping me, second, excuse my English but I learned on the street. I'm italian and i live in Domenican Republic ......

Yes, that's right, you undestand.
I put the data in Vbar screen and when I change from the Vbar screen it work. What I did not understand is: Now, by using the switch That controls the GEAR channel, (you mean the TX switch?) Selecting another bank will change the Gain Gyr. You can switch banks in flight to immediately see the effect.
I can not do it.
Can you please explain it more in detail?
In my TX I have the gear function activated and when I move the swith from mode 0,1,2, in Vbar screen I can see that change, but does not change the function in the helicopter. It remains on the one I loaded from Vbar screen program.
In summary, I loaded the bank 0,1,2,3. I can change from normal to hold with the Vbar screen but not from TX. the numbers I use in TX are: 0 = 100, 1 = 00, 2 = -100. This is what I use with Align 3GX (then I reduce according to the needs)
Thank you one more time

Wan,

I am using a JR9503 radio, so my setup might be a little different. On my radio, I use the GEAR switch on the radio to change banks in the Vbar. Each bank has a different gyro gain value.

In the SOFTWARE, your default bank is 0.

Change the drop down box to say "Bank 0/1/2/3"

Now COPY bank 0 to banks 1, 2, and 3. So far, all banks are the same.

Now, in the SOFTWARE, make bank 1 the active bank, and change the gyro gain value. Now make bank 2 the active bank, and change the gyro gain value even more. Do the same for bank 3.

Now, banks 1 2 and 3 are different.

When you flip the GEAR switch on the RADIO, you should see the ACTIVE bank in the software change, and the slider bar for the gyro gain move. You may be able to choose which switch on your radio controls the gear channel. On mine you cannot.

Here are some good YouTube videos on Bank switching. "MR. MEL" is a Vbar Guru.

The DX18 is a pretty good radio, you should be able to assign just about any switch to any function.

I GOT IT,

Thanks to your suggestions I solved the problem: Thank you.

About the DX18, personally I do not like so much. I have used for many years a Futaba 9Z WC, believe me another world. The feeling of solidity in the hands, the quality sticks very precise, incomparable. Professional switches. The Spektrum DX18 is a plastic with low quality stick. Yes, the programming of DX18 is more simple and intuitive of the Futaba but also is 15 years younger.
I expected more in terms of quality from the DX18.
Well Slowpoke, thanks again for your help.
