Set to release at the end of Oct, 2012, the iKON Flybarless System by MSH, could it be the first FBL with a soul of true FB with the track of a FBL system?

I often found the touted VBar as being tooooo robotic for my taste, no matter how you twiddle with it never really felt right to me. Only the CGY 750 has come close to feeling like a FB but missed out with a few bugs that left a bad taste in your mouth.

Priced at only $224.99 it will have:
Discriptions n specs are;
Built in Governor - Set Your Speed & Flight Mode.

Satellite & S-Bus Ready

Auto Level Technology, encase your finger gets the cramps!

The Wizard- A very simplified Setup

and for the Nitro guys, Vibration Resistant.

(LxWxH)34mm x 29mm x 14mm
Nitro and Electric Compatible
Futaba S-Bus / Dual Spektrum DSM2 & DSMX Ports
Cyclic Servo Support: Up to 560Hz
Tail Servo Support: 560Hz / 760s
I hope its really good, even though it was developed by one pilots taste in mind....one that says everything "flies very well."

What is auto level technology mean? Flick of a switch and Heli recovers?

Dx7 With Ion Power Supply. Why use anything else.

Yup. From reading threads on it, the self leveling doesn't work very well.

From what I have read, the bailout does not add collective. HC is the only one to have bailout that can work on all heli's figured out so far.

I have never seen a MSH Brain fly. How do they stack up against other brands? Do they have a nice GUI setup program?

When you flip the rescue switch on the Helicommand, it will use cyclic to "upright" the heli (inverted if shorter distance) and add pre-programmed collective to get you away from the ground. From what I have read, the Brain only has cyclic control.

It would be great if there were options to the HC that could do the bail out and work on everything from an electric to a gasser.

Nope, it is just self leveling on a switch.

You have to wonder why MSH is changing the name so soon.

They are not changing the name. They are rebranding it for another company (Helidirect?). So you will see more rebrands/bundling in the months to follow. So there will be the MSH Brain and the IKon. Exact same thing except different color and marketing pitch.
