Ok I am building this for a local guy here. He bought everything for it and tried to put it together. But realized he doesn't have the time to build it. Its for his wife.

This is my 1st Goblin build as well. I had to disassemble it and start over. Pretty much got it done. Still need a few extensions for the tail and ESC and heat shrink for the ESC wires.

Here's the line up of equipment:

Goblin 770 airframe
Castle Phoenix Edge HV 160 ESC
Castle Creation 20A BEC Pro
MSH Ikon FBL unit
3- MKS HBL380 cyclic servos
1- BK DS-7005HV
1- Pulse 12S lipo pak
1- pair SAB 770mm Main and 110mm tail blades
Spektrum DX7

I am almost at the point of starting to program electronics. I have never used a IKON FBL unit. It does have satellite ports on it. My question is do I just use it with satellites or should I use a separate Rx to be able to use the Governor in the IKON?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Eugene

Here's some pictures of it as it is now:

Yes I am missing the heat shrink on the motor/ESC. Just ran out of it. I WILL put it on before powering up!!!

you use satellites, no need for a seperate RX. And with a bird that size, use all available satellite ports.

Wasn't sure, thought I saw a post where they said you have to use a separate Rx to use the Governor.

Are the motor wires just not plugged in all the way ( I hope, but don't see that being the case)? There needs to be heatshrink protection over them. Everything else looks good, and not trying to be negative about your build, but that stands out like an elephant on the playground.

Good luck.

Ok so I think I have all the wiring done now. And I did get the ESC contours heat shrunk!!!

So now to get the BEC programmed, Ikon bound and give it back to the Hobby shop to finish it up!!

He only had 1 satellite, so I added a 2nd 1.

Really impressed with the simplicity of this machine! A blast to build!!

Still have it so I will. Thought about it but decided on the spot to run the wire with the ESC wire.

A question on the Governor. I got he adapter that has the little satellite end and a servo end. Is the signal wire in the correct position that plugs into the Ikon? Or do I need to move it to a different pinout?

Also now trying to setup the Ikon. I downloaded the software on my Windows 7 PC. I plugged the Ikon with the USB, by it is not seeing it. When it 1st powers up it flashes green less. then goes to a slow blinking red led.

I 1st plug in the USB to the computer and into the Ikon. Then I power up the Ikon.

Am I doing something wrong?

So here is what I have so far. I have never set up an electric Heli before. I have a little understanding on programming.
