I have a extra blue sensor and was wondering if I found a cheap/older V4.0 Vbar,can I use my blue sensor on it and upgrade the software?

Sensor does not have program in it, it will therefore use whatever program you have in the module.

I have a black module with a blue sensor, works no problem.

Sensors...

there are couple different grey sensors I think?...if you have the grey sensor with the older flat style plug (which is different than the new style servo plug one) then no

if the new sensor plugs into the brain then yes..the older brains that have the different flat style input plugs are not upgradeable because the sensor plugs are different

the brain is not the limiting factor ...only the sensor

You are right the old gray one is too old, but from the black to blue to silver, no problem.

Thats exactly what I was looking for and im glad you said something about the plugs because I didn't know they made different one..
I can get the whole unit for $40.00 bucks and would be cool having a extra Vbar sitting around so my kid can have one when he moves to a bigger heli..Just gotta make sure the sensor had the servo type connector...

Thanks so much....

The older "serial" style modules are not compatible no. They also changed the hardware after the original silver metal ones went out. That's going back in time!

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
