Attention all you TAGS01 owners or fans out there. JR Propo recently released new software updates for the TAGS01 and GTune. Continue through to get the details for the TAGS01 version 2.0.2 and GTune version 1.2.6.
New software has been released for TAGS01 Version 2.0.2 and for Gtune version 1.2.6
TAGS01 :Please refer to Version update Install Guide upon updating.
Important notice:It is required to update both TAGS01 and GTUNE in order to use new function such as Pirouette Compensation and E-Ring function.
Note that it is essential to use Gtune adapter (USB cable)for these updates. (Note carefully that commonly available USB cable cannot be used

New in this version
1. Pirouette Compensation
° Pirouette Compensation
Allows stable high or slow speed pirouettes
° The E-RING can be turned on or off
During 3D maneuvers, when aileron and elevator controls are used to their extreme, the e-ring limits servo movement to prevent jamming of the swash plate. This reduces the chances of servo damage or linkage binding.
2. Changes to the menu layout
The ‘Option Tab’ now displays the dead band settings as well as the above functions.
° Dead Band:
The dead band can be set as desired. A narrow dead band would mean the smallest variation in transmitter signal will cause the servos to respond. A wide dead band means that small variations in transmitter stick neutral have no control effect. As an example, it is similar to the steering wheel in the car. When you drive you may notice you can move the steering wheel slightly left and right with no effect. This is the dead band. If you did not have this “dead band” on the steering wheel, the car would be almost impossible to drive in a straight line.
3. Limiter Volume Display:
The Limiter Volumes are now displayed on the ‘Gain Monitor’ tab.
Caution: Be sure to read the Software Installation guide prior to installing this software.
It is essential to use the GTune USB adapter when performing this update (JR part #02612). Note that commonly available USB cables cannot be used.
Pirouette Compensation can be set and adjusted following initial TAGS01 calibration. Please refer to the instruction manual for details on calibration.
1. Turn on the Transmitter and then the receiver and ensure the servos operate correctly.
Please be sure to disconnect the motor wires from the ESC so the rotor blades cannot suddenly rotate.
2. Start the G-Tune software on your PC and then connect the special G-Tune USB cable to your PC, and then to the TAGS01 control unit.
3. Ensure the G-Tune software connects to the TAGS01.
4. Check the box to activate “Pirouette Compensation”
In order to check the operation, Press click on “confirm” button.
Upon activation, Swash plate may tilt “down” or “up”, Note that upon activation this function, compensation gain value will set as “50%” as default.)
5. Lift up your helicopter and rotate the helicopter in 90degree to the left or right direction
Check the Swash plate remain tilted at same direction no matter heli copter rotate in different direction .
If the tilt angle changes to opposite direction, this is “Incorrect” direction so recheck the Check box in reverse direction to correct the function. And be sure that Swash plate moves correctly.
° You must careful observe the swashplate to ensure this setting is correct.
° If you do not move the helicopter within 5 seconds, the swashplate will return to the neutral position.
6. Pirouette Compensation adjustment
The compensation gain can be adjusted as desired.
The default value of 50 works well for 3D flight. For F3C style flying use values up to 75 – note however that 3 axis gyros are not yet legal for use in F3C competitions. Even high values will not cause servo hunting.
E-RING Set up
The E-ring function is activated by default. After the TAGS01 has been calibrated and servo limits set, the E-Ring function prevents swashplate jamming when both full aileron and elevator controls are used simultaneously during extreme 3D maneuvers..
It is important to inhibit any e-ring function or equivalent compensation mix in the transmitter.

[Key changes in the program.]
1. Pirouette Compensation (Default: OFF)
Capable to operate in high speed Pirouette or even a slow hovering pirouette with stable function.
2. Addition of E-RING Function (Default:ON)
During the 3D maneuvers, when the control being mixed with Aileron and Elevator, This E-Ring function limits the servo control in order not to bind(jammed)on swash mix control. This will reduce the damage on servo or its linkage to the rotor head.
3. Addition of LED lit depend on the flight mode.
Normal Mode: LED all lit off.
Stunt Mode: LED all lit on.
4. BUG FIX
Correction on the bug when the calibration has done with different sequence then the Sensor direction may get reversed without any change of direction.
Be sure to read the Version Update Guide before installation.
