Vbar
Well I just got back into heli's after several years, like an idiot. I got a RTF Trex 600E with a VBar. It came with a DX8. I did a look over and everything seemed fine. Did recheck that all servos worked and tail. Then tried to do 1st hover and motor wouldn't spin. Checked again and found 1 lead unplugged. So plugged it back in and tried to spool it up again, but this time my DX8 went into Binding sequence.

So I tried going to Mikado and sign in but forgot password. Got them to email me a new 1, but still can't get logged in. I need to update my software so I can plug the VBar in so I can re-bind it.

Any ideas? Below is the heli and the VBar

It sounds like you have some experience with v-bars..Did you go through the rebind sequence correctly?..power up the v-bar..without your radio being turned on..cycle the power switch to the v-bar..off and on again..you should have blinking sats..then hold the bind button on your transmitter and turn it on..stand a couple feet away..that should bring your sats to lights on..hope this helps!I do a great decending funnel!

Before doing anything else, do the bind procedure! And check what you get.

Then, after vbar works OK, do the upgrade.

I don't know all that you did, but if you checked everything out and the servos worked and the swash corrections to tilting the heli were correct, then finding one of the motor wires unplugged is not what caused your issues.

I'm not sure what lead you found loose, but I just don't see enough info in your photos or description to try to help. If you already have the 5.3 software installed and are getting a green connection, then starting with the first step in the setup sequence is good info. As was said if that software is working, you do not need to be logged into Mikado to do a setup. It almost sounds like you did an update to 6.0 firmware, which knocks out the use of your spektrum, but from your description, I don't see how you could have done it without being logged into the Mikado website.

So I have tried all day to get the password reset with no luck. I emailed them and even tried calling but they are 7 hours ahead of us. Every time I try to reset and go to Step 2, there's and error.

I talked to Ron here in the US and he helped as much as he could. They have nothing to do with the EU login.

Well, when electronic beging to bother that way, I always put my hammer near it.

For some reason I can't explain, new ideas come faster to my mind and most of the time, I solve the problem...

IIRK the Vbar needs to be registered to you before you can update. If you log into the vstabi.info site you should be able to send a request to have this vbar added to your devices. They will need that serial number.
