I just happen to have one open to pull out a pin that I pushed in with a bind plug that had a broken pin in it already!

The sensor on the daughter board is definitely an AD (Analog Devices) part. I'm guessing that it's a single axis gyro looking after the tail (as used by many other tail gyros).

As for the cyclic, it's probably using a dual axis device but I don't recognise anything from the photos, I'd need some more detailed shots...

are these any good?

I guess it would be this one http://invensense.com/mems/gyro/idg500.html

same brand as the Wii motion plus but different model!
What is wrong with them in YOUR opinion? My TotalG's work great and now I know they can handle being throw'n at the TV I am confident they always will!

Looks like the second sensor is an Invensense IDG-500 (it's hard to read the text on the top of the chip, it might be a 600).

Assuming that it's a 500, it's a dual axis device, here's the data sheet:

Wow...that is horribly complex. I see multiple microcontrollers...excessive. The IDG sensor is under 10 bucks per unit at low quantity and the AD sensor is about 20 in low quantity.

I guess they have one controller for the gov, one for the tail, one for the cyclics...literally threw their entire product line into a box

What ever works!

BTW, the Beast X uses the same IDG sensors.

The black V Bar uses 3 ad sensors, don't know about the blue.

Futaba uses the silicon sensing pin point gyros

The Skookum 360 used the IDG sensors as well, dont know about the 720.

OK ...I would like to learn more about the different sensors with the different units. Whats considered the best? ..and why??

Whats the others using?

This is a very interesting and informative thread with the new FBL trend! I'm all for FBL. Not looking back.

In the past - SK-360 with Vision 50, Protos 500.
Present - I'm using a Mini-V Bar 5.0 with my X5.
Future - Total-G ? With new X7??

Cheers,
Raven

The Invensense, Silicon Sensing(Pin Point), and Analog Devices sensors are the only ones used by the name brand mfgs.

Invensense is the least expensive by far. These sensors usually have at least 2 axis. Gyros can be mounted to a flat plane.

Analog Devices is in the middle in regard to price. One axis per chip. Requires daughter boards for the roll pitch axis gyros.

Silicon Sensing is the most expensive(pin point line is compeitive in price to Analog Devices). Gyros can be mounted on a flat plane.

All 3 sensors brands make good products. I personally use Invensense because its inexpensive and easy to get and install.
