So I purchased a Gaui X4 and it came with a mini Vbar. Ive never used this fbl controller before and having a little trouble getting started. Using a Spectrum dsmx sat and I cannot get it to bind. Is there some sort of voodoo magic i need? Any help is appreciated.

When you bind it have your radio ready and then after you hit bind on the vstabi program in the setup you have to unplug the battery and plug it back in quickly. Then the sats will flash then hit the bind button on your radio depending on which one, I take it that is spectrum then push the bind button and turn it on and it should work.

Also, to add to the above reply, depending on which transmitter you are using, you might either need to almost touch the satellite receiver(s) with your TX antenna or move it a couple feet away to get the bind process to work.

I second the unplug and plug back quickly. It's the only thing that you can't take your time doing.

One other thing I did just for that reason is to use an in line switch so that I could turn it off (unplug) and immediately turn it back on (re plug). If you are running a Deans or something other than a Futaba or JR/Spektrum on a 2s lipo, I just made a connector that uses the mating plug to your battery, with which ever kind of servo plug that you need for a switch harness.

Thanks folks for the help, turns out Windows 7 didnt want to locate the drivers for the vstabi. got it pretty much set up but have a couple questions.

1. elevator servo (#1)- when setting up the Trim menu, it centers the swash, I get it leveled, and finished up the setup. no issues. I powered the heli up afterwards and noticed at full negative the #3 servo was lower than the other two. I rechecked all of my travels and everything was per Transmitter setup menu. Is this just a feature of the bottom line basic mini vbar or am i doing something wrong?

2. i didnt notice anywhere in the setup for max and min pitch. ??

thanks again for the help

You can only set the swash level at min and max collective if you have the pro software. It's considered an advanced feature.
