I am using a PC interface to set my two units up,for me so much easier than all those flashing lights,the interface cable is only a few bucks

Just converted my old Honey bee king 3 to flybarless with a few old stock parts.Copter x system works fine with cheap anologue Turnigy servos and cheap blades,tail is rock solid.

I flew three packs this morning on my T-Rex 250 with the Copter X , and I must say I like flying my 250 again. It flies like a bigger heli, Dont know why but it feels better then the Beast X, I previous had on it. ( then again I installed a Scorpion motor)

The Esky Honey bee king is hardly the most stable helicopter,i set up the little beast in the Copter X beginner mode,this is my first serious FBL attempt,put the aileron and elevator gains to 28 from 40,now it flys like a 30 size.hover is now super stable,all on cheap anologue servos all round.I see what folks mean about a locked in feel,seems like cheating

Now the FBL "Guinea Pig" is out of the way,i will have to pull the Helicommand out of its box an fit it to my gasser.I kept the boxes apart so the "cheap" unit did not infect it Fingers crossed it,s a zillion times better than a $30 unit

HeliCommand comes with thin and thick mounting tape. Use the thick for the gasser.

It is the base unit,i figured that if i was happy with it, i can upgrade it if necessary.As far as i know,no one on this island has an Fbl heli,so its a case of treading carefully although the Helicommand seems to have great reviews.The cheap $30 units seem to be pretty well thought of though online research.People that knock them seem to be folks that have never seen or tried them but condemn them,bit like Align haters

Nothing wrong with the Copter X unit have two now,worth the money even if you just use it as a good tail gyro.Works great on my 450 size heli.

Cable for FBL unit
Is this cable needed to program with a laptop using their software? Is it included with the unit?

(edit)
What/how are you guys programing these?
