Beating my head on a wall
I'm having a hard time figuring this one out. I have an 18MZ that I've had set up on other heli's with no issues. I am putting together a Goblin 770 and have everything all ready to go except the electronics setup. I have been running MSH Brains before and am now going to try the VBar NEO. I have a Kosmik 200 in this bird. I want to have full function of the NEO, (have all the parameters and channels working as the NEO wants), but want the Kosmik to have the ESC signal as most other receivers, with throttle curves. I will use the Kosmik governor but that part isn't an issue. I'm not sure how to get all the channels needed for the NEO as well as use the throttle curves to the Kosmik instead of the "modes" from the NEO. To make things a little more complicated, I have the Kontronik Telme in use as well which is using telemetry channels. I'm hoping I can get everything working this way. The NEO is Pro/Rescue as well.

You have to set the Neo to external ESC gov and each mode will have a throttle out percentage that you will set. Do you have the modes switching properly as shown on the vstabi site?

I believe some people were able to bypass the Neo and have the throttle curve sent from the Futaba RX directly to the ESC.

I have the radio and NEO set up according to how the documentation says as well as have it set to external gov. But, I don't want the throttle input to the Kosmik coming from the NEO's setpoints. I want it to have a regular throttle curve set from the radio like other flybarless setups. That is my issue. But, from what I understand, the NEO still needs to see all the inputs that it needs as well.

Here is a post from another forum about using throttle curves:

If you are using the governor in the Kosmik, the only thing the throttle curves do is select a head speed. That is exactly what is happening with the NEO's outputs. What are you trying to achieve?Team MikadoUSA 480XXTreme, 550SX, 600SX, 700XXTreme, 800XXTreme!!

I want to be able to make head speed changes in the radio, not have to land, walk it back to the laptop, plug it in, make the change, then take it back out and fly again. Just a personal preference. But I should be able to do it, just not exactly sure how to go about it. I will mess with it more this evening.

So from what I have read, you will:

1. Use the SBUS setup according to vstabi except for channel 3
2. Plug your ESC to channel 3 on the receiver
2. Leave channel 3 in the TX set to throttle
3. Select another channel to control the motor on in the Neo
4. Set a switch to control the channel for motor on

I have not tried this, so be careful and let me know if this works.
