Beastx and Ikon
I have just ran both the beastx and the Ikon. Setup on the Ikon was very easy to program and understand. It uses a connection to connect to the computer to go through the setup. Only thing that I confused me a little be was that I expected more steps in the basic setup section. To do the second part and finish all the little things, you have to go into the advance menu. Beastx requires you to go through a bunch of options and I found it to be a bit difficult to understand the first time. Using the push button is fine once you figure out how to get into the right menu set. After watching the video, I figured out how to get to the two menu sets. One thing nice about the beastx is that it doesn't require a computer and corrections can be done on the spot. Once you go through the setup once, then it is easy to understand and be repeated much faster. I had to watch a youtube video the first time to understand what I needed to do. I like both units and they work great in the end. At this point, I am finding myself favoring the Ikon. I also haven't tried the auto leveling yet.

I have found mostly the same things you mention. I have only flown the BeastX so far but I sure could have used the autolevel feature today on my 600N. Skies were way to overcast for me to see well and it bit me!

Does the Ikon support HV 8.4 volts? I have been unable to find the answer at the online site.

I need a unit for my 700N DFC and this might be the one to try.

I've just installed it recently. It was such an easy setup that I haven't felt the need to mess with further. Do you have a problem with it?Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

I have found that the Ikon/Brain is very easy to set up. One drawback is the fact that you have to keep a lap top with you during the first 5 or so flights. The flight performance has been good so far.

I haven't gotten to the SL feature yet but am looking forward to testing that out in the near future.

I haven't had to make any further adjustments on mine. It was spot on the first flight, other than some minor tail gain. Does anyone know how the self leveling works or how to activate in flight? I can not find any information on it at all.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2
