Initial Programming

After you have clicked on the program icon, your screen will show the main page with the parameter settings.

Now connect the VBar (first time with servos still disconnected!) via the USB cable with the PC and with your power supply (3.5 V to 8.4 V, e.g. to ESC or AUX2/3). VBar will start flashing blue. The USB connectivity status display will switch to green, and the connection status will also switch to green, indicating “connected”. Now the screen will switch to initialization mode. Do not move the model until VBar has completed initialization.

On successful initialization, the main page will reappear on the screen, the LED will turn solid green or flash red/green (if no receiver is configured yet).

You might be required to download a Key File first (see above).

Now click on the Setup button to switch to the Setup Wizard, which is your programming assistant. You will be led through the setup menu step by step. After completion of the 13 steps, your helicopter will be ready for flight. At each step you will find information on the left-hand side of the screen. Be sure to read the text and follow the instructions! It is necessary that you perform the steps in the order provided. Do not skip back and forth between steps.

Attention: once you have set up your heli for the first time, you can navigate the Wizard using the Continue and Back buttons. Don‘t click Create new setup unless you really need to, and mind the safety instructions concerning speed controllers and accidental spooling up!
