BeastX and AR7200, technically not the same.
The BeastX and Speculum AR7200 fbl units can't technically be the fbl same units can they?

I mean thats like taking a one bedroom flat and putting it on top a three bedroom house and calling it a one bedroom flat.
Or like putting Shania Twain inside Darth Vader and calling him the best Pop/Country songwriter!

Why not? They put the BeastX inside a case with a Spektrum receiver. Pretty simple, really.

Are you making an implication that there is no way the AR7200BX could perform exactly the same as a BeastX? Why not, that's what's in there?

They are identical, AR7200BX is in a slightly larger case due to it having a built in RX as already pointed out.60% of the time, it works every time!

I will say this about the difference. The instruction manual on the BeastX is a little easier to follow. It's like the Spektrum manual assumes you have read the BeastX manual and are ready for "shorthand". Either that or you watched a bunch of Ron Lund's videos before you try setting one up.

Here is the link to the Microbeast manual:

Check it out for yourself.

Physically they are not the same of course. I imagine the circuit board is indeed different, and some differences in software too. But the controllers are both considered the same by both manufacturers. And they both bear the same logo of the beastx. But technically, they are different.Team POP Secret

Yes, technically they are different...physically. However, they both perform "equally" when loaded with the same softwate versions.

Its technical, mechanical and electrical. I believe they're debating that the two units cant be the same if they no longer share the same dimensions and same circuitry. I would think that they may fly and react different to vibrations because a larger or smaller mounting surface.

Heli pilots go nuts in the winter time and it's just starting. Didn't you see the movie or read "The Shining".

Just let us talk it out and eventually we will all be OK. Make sure we can't find the hatchets.

Interesting point on the weight difference. I've made metal cases to replace plastic ones and found a performance improvement. I've not done this with beastx but it stands to reason it could make a difference.

It's still called a "beastx" inside though, nothing wrong with that.

What's winter?, its the time of year when all of us heli pilots up north have to suck it up and go fly when it is 25 freiken degrees outside with wind and blowing snow. You southern guys would not know anything about that though, your from Texas!. Kind of wish I was in Texas right now to be honest with you
