Save setup file:


The setup file will be saved with the .sec extension. Using bank switching you must know that we are only able to save the currently displayed parameters. So in this case use the "Edit Bank" option to toggle between them and save each bank file seperately. Therefore the heli must be connected and ready to use as for a flight.

 

Click on "Parameters" and "Save". A file browser will open up now.

 

Using the "Edit Bank" function you will be able to save each bank seperately.

The event log will be saved as .pdf file. The heli must be connected and ready to use as for a flight.

How to save screeshots:


In some situations it will be necessary to make a screenshot for mail or forum upload. A known example will be a live view from the vibration analyzer or error warnings in the pc software.

Therefore we use a imaging program, e.g. MS Paint which is installed on mostly all Microsoft machines. Of course a freeware tool like Gimp, IrfanView or Paint.Net can also be used.

First start the imaging tool, then the program from which UI you want to make the shot.

Now get into the situation you want to share with us. In this situation copy either the whole screen content (press PrtScn key) or the active window only (press Alt + PrtScn key).

Toggle to the imaging program, choose the "paste" option or press Strg +v . Now save the image as .jpg format for forum upload or mail. Other data formats (png,bmp etc) will create much bigger files.

 


 

 

Converting digital images for mail or forum:


Using a modern digital foto the most people want to shoot images in the best quality and resolution. But it is a wrong conclusion to do someone a favour with that.

Working on mobile internet acess devices we dislike unneded big files to download. In some rare cases mails have to be deleted directly on our servers in fact of too big attached files. We have also a upload filesize limit in our board to keep the traffic under control. This has nothing to do with the storage on our server, only the download time for fast support reply will be touched here.

The basic statement is: The image should show every needed thing and be as small as possible to keep the download times at the optimum.

A proven best resolution / filesize will be achieved at a image in the .jpg format using 1024x768 ox at 75% quality.

On many cameras you can set the resolution in the menue so thats all you need to do before taking the image.

If you don't have this possibility or you must work with a big image afterwards use a imaging tool to resize the image. In most cases your camera has been delivered with such a program. Of course a freeware tool like Gimp, IrfanView or Paint.Net can also be used.
