Hello everyone,
As many of you have seen in my previous posts, I was determined to figure out how to get the JR XP9303H Heli Transmitter to work with Spirit Pro and GeoLink GPS unit, to achieve having 2 free channels, and be able to assign those channels to the important features I wanted to have that most of you will want too. I have set up all 3 of my Helis with this HOW-TO document step by step that I hope will help many of you use your JR XP9303H transmitter to have RETURN TO HOME AND AUTOMATIC LANDING Function and ALTITUDE LIMIT HARD DECK FUNCTION both working simultaneously or separate. I have made this "How to Guide" to be a "Step by step" to assist you, along with screen shots that will help too. Be sure you print out the PDF and read through it entirely before proceeding. It is relatively easy if you have some experience and know your JR XP9303H fairly well. I hope this brings as much joy to you as it does for me to accomplish this and be able to use our PWM TX with the needed channels to do this without having to go SBUS conversion and nothing else required. Download the attached PDF below. Hope this helps many people, and happy flying! If you find this helpful, please feel free to post a comment of course! :-)
Sincerely, Dave

P.S. - DISCLAIMER & NO LIABILITY: As mentioned in the document, I believe it is as accurate as possible, but you use this on your own accord and I will not be held responsible or liable in anyway if a mishap or something goes wrong. I am positive it works though as this is how I set up my 3 heli's using this document created in the PDF below. :-) However many are at different skill levels in the hobby, thus the reason for this statement.

Hello everyone,

With the most recent Release of Spirit 2.6.x and Geolink update, be sure to check out the link below, describing how you can set up multiple compatible GeoLink features (2 features like "Return to Home" and "Auto Land" on one switch/channel, and then you can also assign another switch/channel to "Altitude Limit" Hard deck Rescue. These features work incredibly well and definitely helps prevent crashing. Here's the updated link on how to do this:

Hope this helps....
Thanks, Dave

Hello everyone,
With the latest version of firmware and software for Spirit & GeoLink, V2.6.1
I thought I would attach all my working .4ds profiles for each heli I have.
All of these profiles are working flying .4ds files at the latest updates, V2.6.1 as of Mar 8, 2019.
You can use the .4ds viewer to view the files and compare to your models.
Also, Bank 0 is the only bank used as I am controlling the GeoLink functions through TX switches as originally described.
The now working 4DS viewer is available at this Spirit Link: http://4dsviewer.spirit-system.com/www/
Thanks Tomas and Team! YOU are the best!
Dave
See attached files below that are working and flying perfect in all my helis:

IMPORTANT:
As promised, I have a much better 600 Logo file attached below - she should fly perfectly with +12,-12 degrees pitch
I won't be able to test it for a week or so as we are having 20 mph this week where I live.
I will report back when I have test flown this Mikado Logo 550 SE V2 stretched to 606mm Rail blades on this setup, Stay tuned

Thanks to Spirit Pro V2.6.1 and GeoLink newest V1.0.2 updates we can now have more channels to add features to.
In the picture below, you can see that I have chosen to also add two functions to one channel.

In this real life example in the picture below, Channel 7 still has the "Return to Home Feature" and I have also added to Channel 7 the new "Automatic Landing" Feature. So now when I am flying and need to get the heli under control for what ever reason, I just toggle the Gear switch backwards away from me, and the heli will right itself up, start towards the programmed "Home" location in GeoLink, and once it hovers over the home location, then it will automatically land the heli completely safe.

It is truly amazing to see for the first time how well this function works. Now I am able to have Return to Home and Auto Land available with a flip of the Gear switch backwards.

See attached channels via below picture... and newest post of how this was achieved in greater detail to assist others. Hope this helps!
Thanks Tomas for the Auto Landing function as well, it works amazingly well! Dave

VERY IMPORTANT info to help everyone further understand how this was achieved....Notice in the picture above for the channels, etc...

Please note, in the first original post there is a PDF file to download the step by step with pictures, on how to set up your JR TX settings, switches, and TX values up and down, to accomplish the end results here to map to your TX that will be easy to use and accomplish the goals for me. That was really the hardest part. But once you have your TX is setup correctly and you choose to use the switch settings that were chosen by me to do this with my JR XP9303 Heli TX, to accomplish having the 3 functions that work rock solid. I fly with setup this way all the time now.

Here are more helpful details below. Be sure to do the JR XP9303 Heli programming as described above, before trying to setup the remaining below (your TX programming is critical for this to work right).

Note that Channel 5 was for Gyro gain, and this Gain can be set to 60 in the Spirit Pro FBL unit under Gyro Gain.
This made channel 5 available by changing it to Unassigned.
Now Channel 5 can be assigned to any Spirit FBL setting on the right side, and I chose to use this channel for Altitude Limit (RESCUE) function. I use the slider lever switch on the right side near the bottom to activate Altitude Limit (RESCUE) function. When in the down position - the function is turned off. When it is in the up position, this enables Altitude Limit (RESCUE) function and it is always on until you slide the slider switch down. So be sure to take off with this switch in the down position, and only activate it when above your specified in meters Altitude Limit (RESCUE) function setting.
When you are ready to land, of course you must turn this feature off by moving the slider lever switch to the full down position.

Also note Channel 7 is unassigned in the picture above, it used to be used for Bank Switching, but since I am not interested in Bank Switching, I now can use only one "Bank 0" in Spirit Pro, and I assigned Spirit FBL settings on the right side, using Switch 7 which is the "Gear switch" on the TX, so that it does two functions at once: Channel 7 still has the "Return to Home Feature" and I have also added to Channel 7 the new "Automatic Landing" Feature. This is really cool that you can add the functions you want, and many of them work well together as shown in this example. I chose to use the gear switch, such that, with the switch is flipped down, towards me, it is in the off position. This was so that I could easily with my left hand or thumb flip it up to turn on both features for Channel 7. This was personal choice of course, as it is easier for me to flip the switch up to activate these two features.

So you may ask how do I just get the Bank 0 settings and no longer need the Bank 1 or 2 files that are not needed?
By default when you save Spirit Pro all settings you usually have to save all the of the .4ds files, this will happen always.
When you save your new configuration you will only need Bank 0 (.4ds files) to be loaded as all the features and functions are now on Bank 0 only. How do you load only the Bank 0 file you need? Simply launch the Spirit Pro Settings App as normal, and then go tot he Backup Tab... on the far right you will see the "Load" option, click Load once, and direct it to go to the location of your .4ds files you save in your computer and you will see all 3 of the Bank 0, Bank 1, Bank 2 files as normal. Now select only Bank 0 (what you need) and it will load only Bank 0 file which is what you will be using in this setup always. You can just delete Bank 1 and 2 as you have no need for them now.

I hope this further helps how this was achieved. Simple, works great and I love it!!!!


Thanks! Dave

Additional new information on how to complete your setup is now in the above post. Hope these tips help you as much as they have for me for what I needed to accomplish using 3 Geolink functions on my Jr XP 9303H heli Transmitter, with Spirit Pro FBL and GeoLink GPS.

Tomas and team have delivered a truly state of the art, full functioned solution, for most everyone's needs, without having to pay for each feature independently, that works, with unheard of incredible tech support to help resolve most any issue, and is flexible, and in my opinion the best bang for the buck there is for this technology! Congratulations Tomas and the Spirit Pro team!
Thanks, Dave
