Remember Nick is explaining ALL functions in the CGY and how to use them - you do not absolutely have/need to adjust every one of them.
My God I've just skipped through some of those videos and my head hurts! BeastX all the way for me
I have the CGY V2 on my 450 and 55 Nitro - briefly tried "Vbar 5.3" on my Nitro 55.
And a BeastX on my Goblin700.
All of them with Futaba S.bus and a FG8.
At the moment I do prefer the CGY.
The CGY V2 flies freaking awesome.
It tracks great, it so predictable and kinda smoothe and aggressive at the same time.
And the nitro gvo is top dollar and the it is not sensitive to vibrations.
The CGY-tail is awesome!
And the CGY V2 setup is pretty easy - as Dr. ben descrieped
The set up steps for 2.0 mirror other units.
Assign the SBus channels.
Choose which swash combination gets the servos all moving the right way.
In swash rate set pitch as per the size of the model as specified in the manual.
In pitch rate set your collective range.
Cyclic rate defaults at 300 d/s. Adjust that to suit your preference. Agility by another name is the same animal.
Flight tuning has a Response Style. Higher is more robotic; lower is more fluid. I can't make that any simpler.
Rudder gyro set the servo pulse width and endpoints and adjust the angular rate for max piro rate if you like. The are stop adjustments in the expert menu if needed. Nothing different, difficult, or new here.
Governor menu is a further simplified version that has its roots in the GV-1. All you have to do is set the limits and tell the gyro whether it's a nitro model or electric (high pole count or low) and set gear ratio and then match the rpm in the governor to the one in the transmitter."
I also level the swash, using the SWASH BASIC and DETAIL MENUs(kinda like linkage comp. in some TX's)
I also do the tail trim flight = adjust your tail linkage length, in non HH, until the heli hover w/o turning.
(No need for Cyclic-trimflight in V2-3D mode. anymore)
And go fly.
Setup time around 15 minutes with the pokertool.
I found it easy to just start on page 12 to around page 18 in the instruction - until you remember what the functions name mean and their purpose.
