Add VLink

If you have a VBar NEO from the latest hardware generation w/o a integrated VLink satellite - it will be convertible to a VLink with a small parts kit and a online upgrade, This might be a big help if someone decides to move over to VBar Control.

The devices which can be upgraded are known as "(no VLink)" in your devices list. After the process you will still have all Pro- / Rescue licenses on this device - and even they will be extended to the Copter, Plane and Extender Firmwares! The device will be exactly the same after the conversion as a "VLink from Stock" is.

 


 

 

You need a hardware kit with 2 antennas, antenna grommet and a new label. The software will be purchased as usual through online update and our shop.

 

Unmount the old label, release the upper housing part carefully.

 

The board can be pulled out to the backside, must be pulled a bit upwards too. Remove the old plate for the antennas.

 

Align the antenna plugs carefully and push them into their sockets. They will snap into them with a noticeable "click".

 

Mount antenna grommet - take care for its alignment.

 

Now the board can be fixed back into the lower housing. Check alignment.

 

The hardware conversion is done. Please do not forget to do a functional test as well as a range check after enabling the software and online update!
