If you have 2 spectrum dsm2 or dmsx satellites all you do is go in the vstabi software and program it to work with the 2 sats.

You won't need the rx's just sarelites.

You can do it with just the rxs you have. But, it's an ugly, bulky mess because you have to run patch cables for all the servos and esc from the rx to the vbar.

You'll also need the patch cables that came with the vbar, including the triple io connector (or make your own). If you don't have those, getting a sat might be cheaper anyway.

It will cost you for the sat (IME one sat is fine for a 500) but it's a much cleaner, easier setup. No patch cables...just plug in the sat and be done with it.

You can probably find a used dsm2 sat for cheap used. I may even have one if you need me to look.

If you really want to wire in to an rx, this is how you do it. All spectrum will be the same..don't worry that shown is ar8000

if it ain't broke, break it.

+1 for what cuda boy posted, with one exception, and that is I feel 2 sats would be better. The recommendation is that 2 should be used on anything larger than a 450 sized heli. Like he said, it is a much simpler and cleaner setup. Be very careful because that RX is intended for a park flyer model and has limited range.

What transmitter are you using? Mikado has several setup possibilities in their software, so make sure that you have the correct setup for your existing transmitter.

I have a couple older DX7s, but nothing newer, so I'm not sure if you have DSMX capability on your TX. If you have that available, I recommend going with that encoding setup.

I updated the illustration. Reload the page.

Bec is not required if your ESC has bec.

Also, worth noting that apparently you can't use Vbar gov with a full size rx, as the RXA port is required. And, you're using it for the ail, ele, rud signals.

Honestly, it has been so long since I used a full sized rx and a mini Vbar the info is starting to fade

Maybe Ron remembers if you can repurpose and splice in to another port for gov. But, I don't think so. So, likely if you wanna use vbar's gov you're gonna need to get a satellite (or 2) and go that route.

if it ain't broke, break it.

Beastx still requires a sat, and a voltage adapter...unless you mean an AR7xxx beastx. Either way I think it's going to be quicker, cheaper and easier to just get a sat for the vbar you have.

It's your choice tho...beastx is a decent unit.

if it ain't broke, break it.

You can always do something different if things don't work out to your liking.....

Go to Mikado USA and do their sign up. That will transfer over to the European website and allow you to do the software download.

You are probably just looking at the Mikado forum, but I'm pretty sure you have to sign in to post.
