Taranis with CGY750
Hello
I've got a frysky Taranis and have always had great luck with Futaba tail gyros (futaba 601's).
I'm thinking of trying to go flybarless and wonder if anyone else has used a Taranis transmitter with a CGY 750?

I know I'll have to get an Sbus adaptor.

I could just get a big brand Tx, but the Taranis is really very good, so I'd rather keep it if possible.

Regards

I don't have one, but why do you think it wouldn't work?

The transmitter really doesn't need to do anything. All the programming is in the CGY.
E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

You don't need an Sbus adapter, just get one of the receivers with SBus built in, set the channel order in the taranis to match what the 750 is looking for and go.

I used this receiver with SBus in a number of helis. Works great.

Thank you.

I've never set up a flybarless so don't know what to expect. If it needs just basic inputs from the tx then I should be fine with the Taranis.

I saw a YouTube video saying this controller sets up really well with a Futaba TX ( could be just marketing)

Thanks for pointing me to the Frsky Sbus rx, it hadn't occurred to me I could use a non futaba RX, even with S bus.

Eury, did you use this s bus receiver with CGY 750 controller?

From my own perspective, I just needed to get some confidence it's possible/compatible before I start spending/ wasting money.

I've had a couple 750s prior to the Taranis, and I'm not a fan. I used it with Ikon, Beast, and vBar. It'll work fine with the 750 though. Just set up the model in your Taranis so the channel order matches Futaba, and the 750 will have no idea that it isn't talking to a Futaba radio.

It's not too difficult to setup the 750, but at least with the firmware a I tried, it was one of the trickier ones to get going well. You might want to look at the Spirit, Ikon, or vBar if you want truly easy setup and everything working well out of the box.

We're not a fan of the Taranis or the CGY controller?

Taranis is great. I'm not a fan of the 750 in flight, form factor, and programming. But that's just personal opinion, it's still good, just not for me.Nick Crego

As long as you have the latest v2.0 firmware in the 750, you'll be fine. Let me know if you have questions.
