The swash configuration is determined by the FBL system that you are using, check the setup manual.

The swash type in your TX will stay as it was, One servo/90deg

Hey thanks!

Also I still have the old GY401 Futaba gyro
and the JR 770S 7 ch reveiver. Will I need to upgrade this equipment in order to go flybarless?

Thanks again!

Although I am not familiar with the radio, a Beastx does everything in the radio from sub-trim to expo to swash type, and it tells you not to use the trim on the radio.

With that said, I would think a basic radio would work. But, I'd suggest sending them an email.

@Jphillips

I bought the thunder tiger flybarless conversion kit for the 30\50 from Heliproz. I have been looking at the flybarless controller\gyro combos and guessing its time to upgrade my electronics. I also use a JR XP 8103 for my TX

Thanks again!

I'm using the beastx and it works great. The reason I used the beqstx is because it seemed to be the most common and had the easiest setup.
