How many hinges did you put on the aillerons ?

Three on each aileron and flap.

03/10/2017 13:42:59

I used small Kavan hinges and Blenderm tape to seal the gaps yes

I'm using an X8R in my P2000 and was going to add a vario.............but now I'll wait.

You'll love the glider, I've added the flap servos and programmed in crow and camber yes

I've been looking at using one of these too; lots of info on this forum:-


I'm waiting until all of the mentioned issues are resolved!

I know it's not home made, but got one of these years ago. You can set the CoG measurement on the top then balance the model.

Just a hint for your DIY balancers!

I use the HK one which works the same as Stevo's but cost less than a tenner thumbs up

Thread: S6R config app issue
10/09/2017 14:59:14

I know that I said I wouldn't waste any more time on this issue but....................

It's too windy (for me) to go flying and the test match finished early so I was bored.

I was still intrigued as to why this app wasn't appearing properly on my PC and my laptop so, using Teamviewer, I compared my screen to my son's to see if there was an obvious difference.

For many years I've preferred to have the Taskbar on the top of the screen not on the bottom which is conventional.

Lo and behold, with the Taskbar on the bottom, the app appears properly with the Previous/Calibration/Next buttons!

Thread: S6R config app issue
31/08/2017 11:16:36

App has been run on my son's W10 PC and works perfectly!

It remains a mystery, but I'll not waste any more time on it angry

Thanks for all the input yes

Thanks to David for emailing the config ZIP.....................exactly the same result, so I'm now sure that it's my PC that's causing this enigma.

I will try it on one of my sons' PCs asap and confirm.
Meanwhile I'm able to set up the S6R with Mike's SportSet smiley

I have just tried s6r calibration software ,version 1.3 on my computer,running windows 10 and it worked fine with the 3 tick boxes visible.

Hi David,

Looks like my PC/Win10 then!

I'll PM you my email address, would you send me the ZIP of the config app you used please and that should confirm it.

Ta, Shep

Checking your images, they have a white area under the tabs that is pushing the blue area, with the options on it, down.

Yes I see that but there is no side slider to adjust up/down, nor arrows at the corners to stretch the image. I've tried several versions for S6R and S8R, all the same!

I'm using Win 10, with a 1920x1080 screen and it displays correctly.

Andy: He must have the correct COM port as he is seeing the accelerometer values, and he has used the read button as the last image shows the reading is complete.


I'm going to try the app on other peoples PCs when I get the chance and will report back.

Thanks, Shep

Ian, Tried S8R config...same result.

Denis, S6R brand new, first one I've tried and using V 1.3

Mike, You're a star..........again; downloaded SportSet and latest .exe, works a treat thank you cool

I agree about the image being short but it was in the middle of a 1920 x 1080 screen res exactly as shown.
Strange one, but your expertise worked smiley


PS I tried several other resolutions too.

Has anyone got a ZIP of the config app that they have successfully used they can email to me, so that I can rule out my PC being the problem?

Please PM me for my email address if you can help. Ta, Shep

Just to reiterate, I've attached actual images of the first page showing the correct version (Aux tick boxes) and the offending Cal page!

PS Thanks for the replies so far smiley

I've just bought an S6R Rx and downloaded and installed the Config App on my Windows 10 PC.

It opens up and finds the Rx, the accelerometer numbers are showing and changing to prove the connection but on that Calibration page the three buttons: Previous, Calibration and Next shown on the downloaded image below are missing!

Anyone got a fix for this please?

I've got a 4 channel Futaba 35 Mhz Tx & Rx which I bought and used circa 1986 with an Algebra glider, which I also still have!

You're welcome to the Tx/Rx for gratis plus postage if you wish.


Mode 1 and good working order smiley

Very nice Colin, but I can't help wondering how sickening it will be for you whenever anyone compliments you on your nice Auster frown

Absolutely! From another ex full size Auster pilot cool
