Got 2 main vbar units off a friend for free, 1 has the USB ripped out and the PCB was damaged in a crash, the other 2 pins shorted and the chip was burnt from that.

I used the good chip and replaced the bad one (lucky i work in SMT!)

When plugging in the USB it comes up Vstabi controller detected but when i apply power nothing happens in the software, is it correct i need a sensor plugged in???

I don't care if it does not work, it was worth a try.

Heh, was wondering if you got the controllers. Interesting it was just the chip that burnt. I though the whole thing was fried. What about gluing the mounting posts back in the non-crushed case? Or just put the PCB back in & tape the case up?

What heli you gonna put this in? I wouldn't put it in anything bigger than a 450!

Thanks MrMel.

Yes taipan not really sure why i got them as i don't really wanna use it LOL.

The one with the USB the PCB was bent and tracks missing where the USB was, the smokey one seemed to only be the chip so i swapped them (actually got a skilled tech to do it) looks like new, the cases I cannot glue the posts as its too weak, the other case is bent.

Ah well in the spares box for someone else if they are stuck for a component
