Select external Governor


Select Model Setup, Setup Tools, ESC Setup Wizard from the menu.

  • Danger Take safety precautions so the power unit can not start up accidentally and cause physical injury or physical damage.

Select Jive from the menu.

Carefully read the instructions of your Kontronik ESC and the instructions on the screen of your VBar Control Transmitter. Your heli and the VBar Flybarless Controller must be set up using the wizard. Both must be wired properly according to the manuals prior to entering this menu.

Move the collective stick to full negative to start with the ESC programming wizard. The screen will change so you can start the actual setup.

Plug in the programming jumper of the Kontronik ESC. To enter the programming mode of the ESC, cut power to your VBar Flybarless Controller, wait for the current screen to disappear. Now turn on your VBar Flybarless Controller again.

Your VBar Control transmitter and the VBar Flybarless Controller are in a programming mode now, which allows you to program the ESC using the collective stick, as if it was connected to a regular receiver.

Now follow the Kontronik programming procedure. Remove the programming jumper, wait for the ESC to confirm. Now wait for the ESC to indicate ‘Mode 4’ with four consecutive beeps, and confirm with moving the collective stick to full positive. The ESC will confirm again.

Now press Exit, and power-cycle your VBar Flybarless Controller again for the ESC to start up in regular mode again.

  • Attention If you want to program further features of your Kontronik ESC, just go through the ESC Setup Wizard again. At the last step, just wait for the ESC to indicate the desired mode (e.g. 9 consecutive beeps for LiPo mode, 10 consecutive beeps for KSA mode, 11 consecutive beeps for constant rpm control mode).
