Hello
I am already into flybarless using the vbar 5.1 with JR9303 transmitter. I want to try the CGY 750 and my quetion is, can I use it without having futaba TX, or do I have to buy a new TX to have the chance to use the CGY 750.
Thanks

The SBE-1 adapter allows the CGY to be used with all radio receivers. Looks like they will be in stock in a couple of weeks.

Thank you very much for the link. That is a lot cheaper than buying a new TX and I am not used to futaba yet. But anyway I have to give a try one day.

Madarex, stay with JR keep it simple.

Ben-T-Spindle, is SBE-1 the only gadget you need to use 750 with JR Radio or the use of Futaba SBus still required?

I was considering the CGY750, $60 for the privilege to connect to a brand other than Futaba, I don't think so. It would be interesting to know how many they really could have sold had they not made it so proprietary.

It would be interesting to see how many people switched to Futaba because of the Sbus connection.

I still use Futaba. Probably because it was my first 2 channel radio when I was a kid. But the 60.00 to connect it to other brands! A bit steep. I like the S-Bus system and the way it simplifies things with my 10CHG. I wish there was a standard developed that made it a little easier for transition without constantly buying new or special equipment.

I'm not sure why JR guys are so pissed. Just don't buy a 750. It's a good system, but it's no better than the Vbar, which works with everything. I've owned and flown both extensively, and honestly, if I didn't fly Futaba I wouldn't bother with the 750, if you aren't flying Futaba the 750 is nothing special.

Eury, thanks for the advice... I always use JR system except for the tail system I have always used Futba system. When Fubata came up with 750, was excited at first then desappoint to know that it can only be used Fut Radio. and you are right I have Vbar 5.1 and works better Beastx my previous system.

Just stick with the vBar, I sold 3 of them when I went to the 750, but honestly I'd be just as happy if I'd stayed with the Vbar, and had greater flexibility. The 750 is awesome, but no better than the Vbar, and worse if you consider the greater flexibility of the Vbar governor with electrics.

I will be ordering the Orange Dsm2 rx w / sbus and the CGY 750 in a couple of weeks. I will let you guys know how it works out.

There is NO way I'm going to run that futaba adapter as it just creates a wiring mess.

No thanks.

The thought of buying a Vbar never entered my mind.

It's the CGY750 or a flybar.

Quite simple really.

Thanks guys for the reply because I am used to JR and to make the step to learn Futaba is bit difficult, cause I don't want to spend to much money to end up with a radio that maybe I will not like. JR is easy to use and JR is coming out as well with his flybarless system. But I have to agree that Vbar is for me really good, I say that because it is the only flybarless that I have tryed till now. I don't want to tease the other brand flybarless user by saying that, just wanted to have some feedback from experienced guys.

Wiring mess?

It does not look any worse than required to hook any normal receiver to a FBL system. Look at the number of wires to connect a conventional JR/Airtonix (Insert your favorite brand) to a BeastX or a Skookum. Not a lot of difference.

Another point to ponder: If you go to the CGY750 you will be learning the FUTABA philosophy for setup along with leaning the conversion between. For example the ratios for changing gain do not correlate 1 to 1 between brands.

Would you be mad if GM didn't make their vehicles with perfect compatibility to Ford engine control modules? Just a thought.

No,No..The other left!

The rumor is that some did arrive but went to those who had them on backorder. Looks like the next batch will be in some time next month. If you really one be sure and backorder it. Tower does not charger your credit card until they ship and you can cancel any time.

As for wires if you look at the manual you will see that only two connections have all 3 wires and the others only have one wire. http://manuals.hobbico.com/fut/sbe-1-manual.pdf

Alright thanks, you're right if i want it i should backorder one, however i don't quite get what you are saying about the wiring, i see wire 1 and two are darker in color ?? and is the accesory cable included ?

It looks to me like channels one to ten plugs into my 10 channel 35mhz receiver and the sbus cable into the gcy750? but where does the power go, i'm thinking about using a gryphon or a reactor regulator or a seperate battery ?

my radio is 7 channel.

i also realised that i have servos that need to go in somewhere, if all the adapter plugs, plug into the receiver, where does the servos plug into.

don't really like this disclaimer:

Power can go into any slot (even "Y" on the RX and even on the CGY-750 itself.
