Need help please!! I have installed the Flymentor 3d to my T-REX 450 PLUS DFC. The FM module powers up and the light goes from red to flashing green but I have uncontrollable servo jiggering from all servos.. The TX inputs make no difference constant jittering. Have plugged in the PPC controller but no difference.. Any advise would be appreciated thanks.

First off, Flymentor is not for Flybarless helicopters. They are meant for flybarred helicopters. They can be made to work, sort of, with Flybarless helis, but the results are far from good.

The thing that is confusing is that you can reverse the servo as well as reverse the stick input in the fly mentor. I just set all to normal and started with the servos 1,2 &3. Some you need to reverse the servo and other times the stick.

Hi I am Henry. I have the Flymentor KDS from Hobby King and the program box. I am having trouble connecting the wires from the FrSky V8FR-II 2.4Ghz 8 to the reciever. I am not sure which color wires to connect to the reciever and in what order. Does anyone know how to connect them?

Received this last week, I had trouble (like alot of other people) getting it to connect to the pc but after several hours of stress I realised that I had the Gyro and Sensor plugs in upside down. It works just as it says. The stabilization is fantastic and I was struggling to get my HK500GT to fly, but after installing this it flys brilliantly.
Good work Hobby King another fantastic product at a fantastic price. If you are a newbie buy this!!!!!

Excellent, work as described. needs some messing aroud to get it work right, and the manual is poorly written or plain wrong.

The unit have a known problem with spectrum recievers with not powering on corretly every now and then, i have the problem to but only 1 out of 8 - 10 times. I think KDS is aware of the issues and im hoping there will be a fix to it later on.

I cannot complain and give it anything but 5 stars for this price.! Excellent!

It works awesome! I uploaded a video for demonstration.

had some evil trouble first coused by Vibrations (and perhaps Electrical flux)

Replaced the components, and made double foam under the gyro, now it works awesome!

Habe das Teil in meinen hk 450 eingebaut.Den Heli mechanisch eingestellt und dan mit der Flymentor Software noch sauber nachgetrimmt.Das Ergebnis beim losslassen des Steuerung bleibt der Heli stehen und richtet sich selber aus.Fazit ein Supersystem.

I have this on a HK450 and it will sure help me to learn flying. I have Vista on my computer and was not able to get software to work, but when I installed on a computer running XP there wasn't any problem. To get a good result you need to take great care of the basic setup on your helikopter.
