Yes the screen shot is odd.
But, it does state "3.1" in the Firmware Version.

Can you actually use old 3G PC software when the 3GX is running newer firmware?

Don't know. I've just loaded the 3GX stuff each time a new version comes out. Never bothered with the SW when I had my 3G system as I didn't want to buy the USB plug.

Hry.

I'd suggest downloading and installing the proper 3GX pc software, rather than use the older generation 3G software. Which it appears you may be using?

Reason being 1. The 3GX is newer and has a dedicated piece of software to tune it and 2. Some parameters present for the 3G are now no longer present on the 3GX since firmware versions V3 and above.

It may read correct but is it updating the 3GX correctly?
Not worth the risk in my opinion.

I played around with the settings today on my Trex 500... No matter what I do it will not behave, either the tail will blow out or the tail will do some strange twitch as you go over the top of a backwards loop.

I have adjusted the Collective Pitch Torque precompensation to eliminate any left yaw rate on a hard vertical climb-out.. Anti Torque Compensation is on nor. and it set at 20.. No luck.. This did not help.

I even set collective pitch torque precom to "0" and anti torque comp to "0" with no luck.. It was worse.

My rudder delay is currently set at "0" and it is on large model.

One interesting item is the rudder acceleration adjustment. For large models it is supposed to have a positive value.. mine is set on "0" by default settings.

My rudder locking gain adjustment is the default 70.

What is strange is I did not have any of these issues with previous 3GX releases.

Any ideas?

Hey.

Have you programmed the 3GX correctly to tell it if it's mounted upright or inverted?
Sounds a silly question, but I've seen it over looked.

How far out do you have the tail control ball set on the servo horn?
I always run a shorter distance than shown in the manuals, this allows me to run a high overall gyro gain for better hold.

I finally fixed my Align 3GX problem on my Trex 500.. The Mini V-bar dropped right in.. Straight out of setup.. No adjustments required..locked in.. Piros great and straight as an arrow with the tail over the top on the high speed backwards loops..
