2014 Xstar + Gen2 Autolaunch question

Hi,

The autolaunch for the Xstar with the Gen2 system added works, but the system uses 100% plates with autolaunch avtivated, this pushes the nose too much down. In the settings I can only adjust the speed when the system needs to retract. (minimum = 22,5 KPH). The X23 from one of my mates uses only 60% tab L+R..

Are there owners with a 2014/15 Xstar with Gen2 added, that know how to set the % of the plates for autolaunch? or isn't that possible?

Thanks!

Gr, Tim

Is your Software Current?

All 3 Tabs would be DOWN/DEPLOYED thru 15-20mph depending on your pref
You can change the crossover point MPH to help the Nose..

Also your center tab will go back to last setting ...and that MAY contribute to Nose down once you are at desired speed

Yes, correct.

But when I set it to 15-20mph (24 - 32 KPH) It is too much, and the nose will be flushed with water.
The minimum speed is 14mph (22,5 KPH).

But that I understand, I just want the autolaunch not to use 100% surftabs.
Like the X23, It is possible to adjust this %.

So is this adjustable at the Xstar?

yes, I think I have the lastest Software update.

On my 2014 X-30 the only user adjustment I could see was MPH. Nothing for percentage of deployment.

That is actually a great idea..maybe the next software update??

I hope so, full deployment and the speed setting at 20mp you really need to hide behind the window.

I tuned my deployment down to 14MPH....at 20 it would be a submarine with my 300lbs of lead in the bow.

Oke, good to know that I am not the only one with this problem.
Tuned it also to 14mph.

Lucky me that the 6.2 doesn't need autolaunch with only stock ballast full.

Now just wait for a software update ...

My '14 x-star was originally set to 20mph and the boat would hardly accelerate past 20mph and was throwing a pretty massive rooster tail. Brought the speed down to 15 and the system worked perfectly. Its a really nice feature.
