Our new VBar platform is called NEO and is the sucessor of both VBar Mini and VBar Silverline. It contains latest sensor technology and top processing power.
The size of the VBar NEO is slightly bigger than the VBar Mini, but it provides the connectivity of a Silverline. If features 9 fully usable servo outputs, a rpm sensor input, a connector for an external sensor, two telemetry ports, and an integrated USB port.
The main advantage is the sensor array that contains two different multi axis sensors, which provide best performance even on high vibration loads by working together. The power supply has been hardened against spikes from servos that have insufficient internal filtering of their own glitches.
VBar NEO will come with the Express configuration. It has much more features as the current Express version, i.e. it contains the electric governor and bank switching already. So it fits the basic needs to be used with VBar Control.
VBar NEO VBasic is a simple receiver for VBar Control. It can be updated online to make it a full blown VBar NEO with all the stabilization and assisting features (like Rescue).
PRO configuration contains extended parameter access, and the usage of Macrocells. Macrocells are a new type of programming complex functionality specially for bigger and more complex models. Pro implicitely includes the VPlane license.
The top configuration is PRO+Rescue, which adds the Rescue feature to the PRO version.
To use all the new features, an update of the VBar Control may berequired. Specific features may require the installation of free Apps from our App Store. All updates are fully backwards compatible, so all current devices can be used without change.
Even Express contains a updated 6.1 control loop, that contains a special anti ballooning facility to provide a better stability at high speed, as well as much improoved performace at flying with very low rpm. The violent ballonig effect on the edge at high speed is almost gone!
You find detailed instructions how to proceed with VBar NEO. New Apps are described in the VBar Control User Manual. All updates will be performed with the VBar Control Manager. The Changelog shows all changes in detail.
