I have been flying my gasser without electronics for some time now and will like to know if the Sk360 can be turn of in normal mode and autorotation? If someone knows or have experince on doing this please speak up.

The reason I want to do this is I am used to fly without the eletronincs with no problem and i want to have the unit on just on idle 1 and 2 when doning 3d/ sport flying only. If this is possible then I'll get the SK360 unit if not then I will wait.

If there is another unit that can have this feature please let me know.

Thanks in advcance!!

Flybar controllers run the servos so they have to be on all the time. The SK360 does have two banks of gains so you can set one to fly like it does now and the other for more stability or more aerobatic capability as desired. You can use the flight mode to select the bank of gains you want.

How about when you do autos can I cancel or have the unit off?? I have heard so many sad stories people doing autos and at the end the FBL unit tip over the Heli and since I got no FBL unit taking off, autos Are good no problem.

I'm thinking to get the unit just to do more aggresive 3D and make it ease. Is not that one can't but I want it if this is possible.

I know the unit can't be turn off but what I mean is turn down the gyro some how so the unit don't have the control and you can take off and auto without the fear of tipping the Heli.

Can this be possible to achive with any unit?

I don't know about "any" unit, but I do have experience with the vbar and SK360. Both have bank switching, so yes, as long as your radio is capable, then you can set the bank based on flight mode. That means normal mode or throttle hold.

You'll be assigning an extra channel on your radio for bank selection on the FBL unit. Make sure that your particular radio will let you set up outputs based on flight mode. I have to imagine that you can make it work on most modern computer radios..

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I don't know your radio specifically. I'm a JR guy, but I'm pretty sure you can do it with the DX7, so I gotta imagine you'll be able to do it with the Futaba equivalent. Usually the Futuaba radios have MORE bells and whistles than JR, not less.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I fly the 360 on a 700 with no issues. I dont switch gains for autos. If you don't bleed the headspeed into nothing, it is plenty stable at the bottom.

THANKS theriddick45

not meaning to jack your thread but thanks for the FBL NOE nfo. My 500 is more fun than I'll usually admit too fully dressed. Still fine tuning but 6 flights on generic blades.

NO need to touch gains for autos.
The SK360 autos perfectly, all the way down to oh my god low rotor speed.
