Topic Question Answer
137 I am getting different amount of positive and negative collective. How I can I fix it? Go to Setup -> Transmitter. Move the collective stick until the collective on the DataPod screen becomes 0%. The slider marker will also...
157 The DataPod reported a version mismatch and advised me to read this topic. The DataPod communicates with the Vortex using a shared communication mechanism known as protocol. When a new configuration parameter or new...
167 The throttle bar does not change on the home screen of the DataPod. Is this normal or is this... The governor function of the Vortex must be enabled in order for the throttle bar to update. When the governor is inhibited and the radio endpoints...
165 The swashplate does not travel level as I move the collective stick. It tilts slightly forward and... This may be the result of parameter Rotor :: Elevator Pre-compensation which aids with certain aspects of flight. To confirm that such unwanted...
162 The trim flight never completes. 1) Check that the collective operates in the correct direction in Setup :: Transmitter menu. If the direction is incorrect reverse it at...
161 When I start a trim flight the menu exits within a few seconds before I had the change to take off. The Vortex delays the trim flight until the collective pitch is over 0deg. In addition the trim flight is postponed for a further 5 seconds every...
160 I am getting elevator bounce. I maxed out the Ele Debounce setting but a bit of it is still there. Most flybarless systems benefit from firm head dampening. Soft or worn out dampeners allow the rotor disk to flex thus introducing a control delay...

147 The value shown in menu Setup::Swash::CyclicLimit does not match the measured blade pitch. Due to geometry of the swashplate and head linkages there may be small variations between the displayed and measured values. This is not a problem...
156 The heli wobbles on its main shaft as it piros. First ensure that the swashplate linkage geometry is correct and that it is perfectly level whilst in the Setup :: Swash :: Trim Sv* menus. Also, it...
154 When I move the heli the swashplate is tilting the wrong way. First check that Setup :: Sensor is set correctly for the orientation that the gyro sensor is mounted. Check that each swashplate servo is plugged...
158 The swash and tail did not zip to confirm completion of calibration. Does the swash and tail rotor respond to stick inputs? This would indicate that the calibration has in fact been completed however the System ::...
159 When I power up the model, the ESC initializes and then it keeps pulsing the motor, causing the... Go to Setup::Governor::Servo type and select to Analog. Some ESCs can't take the higher frequency digital servo signal.
