Windows 10 & VBar NEO / VBar Control

Its working again! We are not completely sure when it is rolled out for other languages, but here in Germany you can now download a „Quality Update“ called KB4038788 which simplifies the use of all NEO´s and VBar Controls again even in Bootloader Mode, without the need of the Workaround we provided earlier this year.

The Update will be installed automatically if you have the automated update enabled, or if you trigger it manually by explicitly requesting the Windows Update.

It’s quite annoying that there is no word in the change logs, nor any response to our detailed technical bug reports at all. However, its working again now, so enjoy your V Products with latest Windows!

Es geht wieder! Mit dem „kumulativen Qualitätsupdate“ Namens „KB4038788“ funktionieren wieder alle Bootloader auf der NEO und allen VBar Controls ohne den Workaround, den wir zur Verfügung gestellt haben.

Das Update installiert sich beim normalen Update von Windows 10 automatisch, wenn man Auto-Update aktiviert hat. Man kann es auch manuell antriggern, indem man explizit nach neuen Updates suchen lässt.

Es ist etwas seltsam, das die Korrektur nirgends in den Changelogs verzeichnet ist, und auf unsere sehr detaillierte Fehlerbeschreibung nicht die geringste Reaktion erfolgt ist. Aber egal, Hauptsache der Fehler ist behoben, und die Verwendung unserer Produkte ist wieder so einfach wie es gedacht war.

Mikado @ Habo Helimeet 2017

For the third year in a row, Team Mikado was proud to be invited to the Far North, to Habo in Sweden. A beautiful day with fair temperatures (maybe already too hot for the Swedish?) and a picturesque scenery saw more than 45 pilots for a casual fun fly. Marik, Alex and Tim put up some show, too, and showcased the current LOGOs and VBar Control radios.

We want to thank the Habo Modellflygklubb for having us, and for the perfect arrangement of the event!
