I would like all the reports of the people who have used this and the machine they used it in

Pros and Cons

is it true that you have to calibrate before every flight?

Fly 60% take heli home Fly 150% take parts home

I use it in T-rex 600 works fine , never experienced glitching, on site calibration is really simple and only required if weather conditions or the terrain you are flying over changes significantly.

Here's a test I did a while back you can see I was giving it full right cyclic at the beginning of the flight and the Fs8 would immediately recover the heli's position. During the second climb I was ONLY feeding it positive pitch no cyclic at all.

Many will the Fs8 is not good, but it has worked great for me for more than a year now.

I was looking on FMA´s webpage.
I see that they also have a vertical stabiliser.
This must be a great product. I intend to try one out.
