CSM gyro - Longshot
Hi, looking for a bit of help here guys. I bought a used CSM SL560 gyro off of eBay but I've since found out that it has the early V3 software and some of the internal parameters have been altered. I have the V4 software and dongle which will connect and read from this unit but not write back. Can anyone give me a heads up if they know whether the CSM V4 USB gyro interface will work with V3 software. If it will does anyone have a copy or know where I can get a copy of the V3 software so that I can reset it back to its defaults.

Cheers for that. I googled everywhere and couldn't come up with a thing. I still have an XP notebook so I will give it a try later on. Once again many thanks.

You may need to drive it via a Serial Comm port or Printer port.. In the olden days this is how it was done. USB ports didn't exist back then!

**Although the manual requires you to drive it from the LPT (printer port)

Looks like this is going to be more trouble than it's worth. I only paid a tenner for it to use in a cheap Hirobo Shuttle but now it looks like I need a computer with a printer port, running XP and a CSM lpt interface to make sure the parameters are as they should be. WTF!!...... I'll leave this up for a while and see if anyone else comes up with an economic solution but I ain't holding my breath. Thanks for the replies so far though.

Grab an Align GP750 or 790 (NOT 780) off ebay. They are dead easy to setup and perform very well. Failing that a good old Futaba GY401 will get the job done nicely. I have one actually, I also have a CSM SL720 and a Spartan Quark!60% of the time, it works every time!
