Im thinking back to my 2 axis fbl setup only a little while ago and how great we thought it was!!
Things seem to be moving along quite nicely now, Im having my 1st try with sbus, who would have thought that possible.......14 channels, lol
I paid $1200 for a 9z which was really only 8 and it cost me a 35% plane not 2 months later due to a lockout.
We have pretty good stuff now, enjoy it.
My Vbar on an ys90 shows vibration but flies as smooth as silk.
I dont see how the 750 can be much better but Ive got one on the way to try so we will see, thats why its a hobby.

"i read the 750 manual and it says that it's compatible with 35mhz pcm rx.

Would a 9cap be a good choice i know someone selling one for a good price ? It's just switching to 2.4 (buying a 8fg + 750 gyro plus a fb head i intend to get for my raptor 90 is gonna cost 2 arms and maybe half a leg, from what i read on the 750 manual it seems to me everything can be programmed from the gyro. i was quite amazed how much is done just on the gyro itself without radio programming, so a fancy system not really required ?"

Anyone ...?

Mate, the 750 only works with sbus at tho mo, until the PWM adaptors come out.

If you got a 36Aus or 35US meg TX and used a fasst module, you can bind it to a sbus RX, say a 6208, and use the 750, but you will have to inhibit a channel, say, Ail/Ele gain, and set it manually in the 750 unit.

You wont be able to change gains on the fly, but it will work.( I havent tried it myself) PG18 of the manual.

After seeing my miniVbar basically ignore a bent pinion adapter on a MiniProtos (it told me about it though through the 'band-aid' ), I'm wondering how much better a sensor do we need? Ok, I guess it could save on fancy tape, just epoxy the unit on and call it a day, lol.

I have no idea what sensors it uses. It also uses accelerometers, unlike the rest of them out there. No sbus, which is why mine are being replaced. but it does have excellent piro comp. I wouldn't buy a new one today for the $300 or so they now go for, but it is the best flying unit I've owned.

Gyrobot

I'm with you Eury...the gyrobot is a great flying system...I used to love them...one of the only reasons I got rid of mine was because they didn't support sats

At one point I had like 10 gyrobotted machines

I'd like to try this futaba system...but I fly a Jr 11x right now so it looks like I can't even try it...man ..talk about focusing on a very limited group of people( futaba only radio users)

I'll have to wait until they make it Jr compatible

ok just trying to see if i got this straight (i never owned a futaba, i have jr)

so what u saying is a 35mhz module futaba (or some of them) did have the fasst feature,
meaning the 9cap 35 mhz i'm eyeing could have it.

If it does not i will need to upgrade it somehow to fasst ?

Then wait for an adaptor and then get an sbus rx. and set the whole concuction up to finally acually work and i can then not set gain remotely.

man i'm starting to wonder if i should rather just get an 8fg

Maybe i should sell the 600 or my mtb, arrrgh. Why futaba must do it like this man

Hi Theli, hi mate, i met up with a bloke at the field today, who is doing exactly what you are planning, and that is a 9cap, with a fasst module replacing the 36 meg module in the back of the tx.

He uses it with a 6208 fasst rx, and the gy750, and he has inhibited the ele and ail gains as channels from the tx, and presets them in the gy750.

Its an option Purchasing a Futaba radio is another option. Im not telling you what to buy, only trying to help you use what you have

Cheers mate. All the best.

Nother 6 flights on mine today Yowee

No, i really appreciate your opinion thanks mate.
Just want to know, sorry for my ignorance, but like mentioned i never ever used futaba before, What is the fasst module, Is it an upgrade
for the 9cap 35mhz to 2.4 or just a 35mhz module that would make the 9cap more compatible with the 750 gyro ? what do i need to search for if i want to buy the fasst module for the 9cap.

This is the very radio i'm eyeing @ getting:

http://www.avcom.co.za/phpBB3/viewt...hp?f=31&t=76504

Price is about 350 US.

Sound like you're having the time of your life at the field wish i
was at that stage already.
