I think I want to move up from the 3gx and try and new FBL unit. I'm kind of stuck between these two. They're both within my budget and sound interesting.

What are some thoughts or fdback with use of these units? How is the Ikon? Can this be used with just sat's? I don't want to have to run a separate rx.

Before you throw away your 3gx please make sure you have tried it with the latest firmware update version 3.0 since this is very good imho.

I have used the ar7200bx in quite a few heli's, big and small, and it has worked flawlessly and was very easy to setup (after the first time, like anyting, lol!). Lots of these Bx units at most flying fields so it's pretty easy to get help. Also, no PC required to setup/adjust.

I have not tried the Ikon, nor have I seen one locally yet so I cannot comment on it. I'll probably wait until I see one in action before I'd buy one.

I just bought my 5th AR7200BX. These things work awesome. They are intimidating at first set up but a few minutes of reading and watching Ron's setup videos its a breeze!

Haven't tried anything else so I can't say about other ones.
