Hi,

mine arrived. Installed in a fury 55 on gyro tray as it has to be line of sight to the sky. Hopefully get a test flight today.

Ray,

If that is a 750 sensor under that velcro, it sure looks like it is crooked to the long axis of the frames. Or is it just an illusion?

I see it too. It looks crooked by about 3° or 4°.

If that's a GY701 sensor, no worries at all.
If that's a CGY750 sensor, you may want to fix that sooner than later.

Ben, Dood,

thanks for feedback ... you prompted to me to check. I used a piece of lego to align ... see photo. I think its a bit skewed on the metal plate though.

Directly on your computer through the USB, it is written on the website:

"It features a built-in USB Port. You can use it to connect a memory stick or connect it to a keyboard or mouse or use it to download telemetry data to your PC or laptop for storage and reference."

What about giving information to the flybarless controller--like to establish a hard deck? That would be really cool.

I have a gut feeling there is a new 3 axis gyro in works that has sbus2 support. The manual for 14SG has says in few spots "[S.BUS2 Servo S.BUS2 Gyro Telemetry Sensor] (page 24 in the pdf)"

Thiscould be very handy while practicing speed runs, with altitude changes. I say this because the rules have changed a bit for the 2013 Speed Cup...
