Hey guys, I'm just curious on what you guys think. I have a rave 700 nitro and want to buy a BD 3sx but for now I have a microbeast on it. Is this flybarless unit typically for smaller Heli's like 500s and under or can you run these with larger Nitros? I'm running a is 91hzr and of course I have the typical nitro vibrations. Any thoughts or comments are greatly appreciated!!!

I think that it really amounts to what voltage you want to run your servos. I have a TRx550 on 6 volts with a Microbeast and Spektrum receiver. I also have a TRx800 on 8.4volt 2s lipo with a Microbeast HD and Spektrum Receiver.

I am sure that many have run large helis on 6volt servos. Higher voltage will get you more torque.

So check your voltages, check recommended servos. I don't think that the microbeast will be a problem.

I think they named it Microbeast because at the time it was the smallest FBL unit available, it has nothing to do with the size of heli you mount it to.

On a 700 nitro just make sure you DON'T use the thick white pad and DO use the thin grey pad. The Microbeast has a nice weighty metal base so no need to mount it softly.

60% of the time, it works every time!

That unit will be just fine on the 700, with no issues what so ever. Just don't use that white like someone stayed previously. Use the 3m tape and you won't have an issue.

Ok that's great news, I'm still in the setup of this heli so all the info I can get is great.
Does anyone know if the old thread is still up where you put in your location and find ppl in your area to help with setups and maybe tinkering? I remember seeing it on here many years ago? Anybody know what I'm referring to?lol thanks
