Love the Beastx easy to set up. Don't know about the Futaba.

Futaba is a better FBL unit but is far more complex if you want it to be and S-Bus only. (will need the decoder if using a system other than S-bus)

Both can be programmed on the field without computer but the OLED screen on the CGY750 is more intuitive than different colour lights on the BeastX

BeastX is far more economical but you only get what you pay for.

Servo - cant go past a Futaba BLS (251 for low voltage systems or 256 for HV)

I have had 3 different flybarless units on my helis which ranged from trex 450 pro's up to my x50(which is running the TT flybarless head. They were the align 3G, spektrum/Beastx combo, and just the Beastx unit tied to a spektrum receiver. I just bought a logo 400se and it is running a mini vbar.

I am still learning the vbar but so far I can say that the Beastx is hands down the easiest to set up. I am just learning how to do some basic 3d flight and I find the Beastx works just fine. The mini vbar seems like it holds the tail better but is considerably more expensive and a lot more detailed.

I have the V-Bar on my X50 and love every bit of it, never had so much fun flying it. Very crisp and locked in feel. I also have the V-Bar on my Rap 90 SE and Aurora.

Hands down the BeastX
Would like to add, I am not a big fan of any one brand, but that unit is just the king at setups.
You can use a laptop to do all the settings and setup, in addition you have the easy to use panel.
CGY 750 takes a lot longer to setup and tweak.

P.S.
the question was about BeastX and CGY750!
a Vid on V2, this not V3 but almost same

The new 750 software, V 1.3, is light years ahead of V 1.2, both in performance and no tweaking necessary. Absolutely great flying characteristics with no bad habits.

Yes, I agree 1.3 is very easy to setup and light years away from 1.2, they should've called it 3.0. The cgy I was referring to was 1.2.

There are two X50s flying in our club that are FBL. Mine with the CGY750 and another with the BeastX.

Both fly beautifully well. End result of each is a very solid and predictable machine. And I don't think you'd be unhappy with either.

That being said from here on out is my opinion: I would only consider CGY750 myself. I helped on the other x50 and BeastX unit and was amazed at how much interaction had to be tuned out of it. No default setting resulted in the swash action being perfectly linear. My X50 is flying on default settings for the 1.3 firmware and it is amazingly solid. It doesn't wobble on hard 3D, it has never lost the tail, there was no interaction to tune out of it. Piro flips and pirouetting maneuvers on it are so predictable you just fly through them. I had the same success before the 1.3 firmware but I knew the system well and could set it up fairly easily. Now with the 1.3 it is a breeze... I just set up my Goblin 500 on a CGY750 with the default settings for a 500 size. I thought I ended up with a tail bounce problem to adjust out, turns out it was a sticky control rod lol.
