HELI-X and VBarControl Touch

Users of the HELI-X Simulator are now able to Sim with their VBar Control Touch over WiFi without any additional hardware. Since the Simulator uses the transmitters calibrated sticks and controls, no other programming is needed. Even the stick assignment and the usual switch assignment is already set, so it is just plug and play.

Update your radio, then you will get a new shop app, there you find the app in the "System" section. You can install the app as usual with your phone or any other browser. Read more »

But enough talking, just do the update and enjoy the new pirouette stability. You will notice it! This feature is active for all NEOs, but on bigger helis, the changes are far less noticeable. Read more »

VBar Software and macOS Big Sur

These days, Apple has released the latest version of macOS.
With this version, amongst other changes, Apple has ended support for legacy system extensions (Kernel Extensions, kexts), which means, the USB driver needed for the USB controller on legacy VBars as well as for VBar NEO does no longer work.
There is a newer driver available from the supplier of these USB controllers, but it does not/yet work with our devices.
We can not yet tell if or when this can be fixed, and with which effort.
The software itself works, you just might need to install Java.
This means, VBar Control Manager works and can be used to register, update and manage VBar devices, but not the VBar NEO Setu

Update for VBar Control touch

The latest update contains some further improvements.

In the system settings we sorted the voice volumes new. We also worked through all apps to assign everything right - so that now all "normal" telemetry or timer announcements are made with the telemetry volume - and the alarms (based on issues or thresholds) where the pilot should e.g. land or do any other action are spoken with the warning volume. A warning will now always abort other announcements and come up immediately too. Read more »

VBar Control touch - Talking Telemetry with new Feature

We did some massive overwork on the talking telemetry app on the VBar Control touch and its data-delivering apps like e.g. esc apps and battery logbook app. You can now set up to 16 announcements (on each model different) based on a list like the userscreen design elements with up to 2 different switches and positions while the regarding model is connected. The announcement itself can also be configured (prefix, value, suffix) in its spoken length. The Susans voice app is mandatory required to get all phrases spoken. The measuring units will now be set up in the system - settings panel for all apps at one place too.

PC Software Patch for 6.4

Here is a patch for the PC Setup Software, to make the parameters "Lightness" also called "Anti Gravity" and "Tail Wag Suppression" accessible from the PC side. Please replace the file config_62.sec with this one (file is inside zip archive). On Windows PC, it is inside the "C:\Program Files (x86)\VBarControl" folder. It also works on MACs, right-click the App as if you would place a keys.sto-file there, Show Package Contents, move the file to the same location (link to folder). The parameters can be found in the expert settings of main rotor and tail rotor.

Lightness = Anti Gravity, Wag Sup = Tail Wag Suppression
