I am considering the switch from 72 to FASST. (14MZ)

I have been out of the loop for about 2 years and just recently got back into it.. Everyone looks at me funny when I pull out my antenna hehe.

I know they have the combo, but I have been flying FBL with the Vbar, and WILL be getting the futaba FBL when it arrives. Original Vbar in one Mini in another that does have sbus plug.

That being said, I have seen they offer S-bus also.
So What receivers do I order?

Heli's
Trex 500
Swift 620
Logo 600

Thanks for the helps,
Steve

You must have an S.Bus RX to use the CGY-750.
That said, the current S.Bus RX is the R6108SB. The R6203SB should be out the same time as the CGY-750.
Unless you have need for more channels, the R617FS will work just fine. Only thing, when using this RX (and some others) the TX must be in 7ch mode, when using the S.Bus RX's and the R6014HS, the TX must be in Multi mode. Not a big deal at all.

If all your models have v-bar and those units can be upgraded with version 5.0 pro firmware then I would recommend you get the s-bus receiver. As stated the 6108SB now or wait for the 6203SB. This makes the wiring job very easy and neat.

Ok I am on the way to pick up my Fasst module shortly..

Updated my 14mz with the latest update.

I see in the info it mentions channel relocations- I have typically left the channels stock before -Did you folks need to change it?

If you are going to be running Futaba or Mikado FBL systems in each helicopters then go with the R6203SB that will be for sale mid-late March. Saves you $60 per RX and a ton of space on the helicopter.

If you can't wait, then pick up the R6108SB.

If you allow the transmitter to reassign the channels you will have the best possible speed and basically no interaction with your eCCPM heads. The channel relocation puts AIL, ELE and Pitch in order so that the signals are basically sent at the same time to each of them.

Steve, you are referring to when running in S.Bus mode correct? So having AIL, ELE, and PITCH in consecutive order via S.Bus all get sent at the same time?

The transmitter does not care which receiver you are running. Allowing the reallocation, put the channels that should be together in the same packet of information.

I use a 12FGH. I understand your point above. The question might be stated differently. Does the CGY750 know which signal is the elevator command regardless of the channel it is assigned to in the transmitter when it is forwarded from an SBus receiver to the CGY750 over the SBus cable? To put it another way, does the CGY750 require, or expect that specific functions be on specific channels, i.e. ch1 elev, ch2 ail, ch3 pitch etc?

Thanks for your support on the forums. It is appreciated.

Ok I swapped one- swapped channels as suggested- need to range check and give it a go.

I am replacing the 5014 so I already had all the wires there- just a matter of old channel to new channel numbers.
Will go for the sbus rx when the 750 shows up.

BTW- Sbus wire- is that just like an extension lead or a special sbus lead?

When you set up the 750, you'll go to the S.Bus menu. There you'll see sequentially numbered prompts for the various gyro and governor functions. With each of the functions, you tell it which channel from the transmitter is to be commanding it.

Success with 2 helis.
Now my only problem is the transmitter is bottom heavy without the long antenna sticking out the top!!

Do you fly with a neckstrap? If so consider this balancer from Futaba.
