Just ordered a new 700X top combo, and wanted to get opinions on what gyro to throw in there?

I know nothing about the Microbeast that comes in the kit and may consider using it but what are your opinions?

Thanks!

If its an electric helicopter them the Microbeast will be fine.

If its glow or a gasser I would go for a CGY750 so that you can mou t the sensor in the point of least vibration. In my experience the BeastX is atrocious on a glow or gas helicopter.

anyway the 750 is nice but.. you know in 2 year you have to put a new screen in Futaba. ..
I have three of them and I like them ...programming on them it takes a little getting used to

I've had at least 6 750's since prerelease samples and never had a screen requiring replacement.

I own three 701’s and have just had my oldest screen start going dodgy.

Who knows why? My gear is all kept immaculate and in the house.

Having said that I will always buy either Futaba or JR Propo.

While I've not used the stand alone Microbeast BeastX plus in a glow heli, I've probably used set up at least ten of the Horizon AR7200s, 7300s and 7210s for friends in nitro helis and we've never had the first problem with them. The stand alone Beastx Plus should work just as well in a nitro or electric heli as the AR units. If you are used to setting up everything on a computer, you will have to get used to BeastX system of colored leds for setup. It's not hard if you read the manual, just different. Watch some of the YouTube vidios of helis being flown using the BeastX, it seems to work as good as other FBL units.

Sell the included uBeast on RR.

I recommend the MSH Brain 2 / iKON 2
They are the same gyro but different distributors
https://www.mshusa.com/collections/...barless-systems
No additional features to buy or unlock and their support is stellar.
If you are using a Spektrum, Futaba or Jeti, the Brain 2 supports bi-directional telemetry and setup through the transmitter
Kind of cutting edge stuff.

Skookum Robotics is a dead company.
You will see several on the used market as people bail out of them

I know the CGY has been around forever.
But, I don't know if they have added the telemetry to it - or if that can be added.

Believe 1/2 of what you see and none of what you hear.

As per your profile, you seem to already have a 750 and a Tx to program it or would this be your 1st FBL?

Given the "versus" nature of this post, I would use whats included and formulate feelings based on flying experience.

By downloading its manual, it should give you a heads up of the amount of fun you will get from it versus setting it.

FWIW...Microbeast just works. If it was bad at all you would have read about it by now as well as Align. Its simplicity to set up is a "plus" in itself. The rescue mode is optional and something to consider IF you think you will ever use it.

Been flying the CGY-750 for years now. I wanted to see if the included Microbeast was better or on par with the CGY-750? Might take some others advice and just sell the included FBL unit.

I have nothing against the CGY750, I've got a couple and set up several for other flyers. They can be a little time consuming to set up as they have so many parameters that can be adjusted, but that very adjustability seems to make them popular with the F3C crowd. They can be adjusted at the field with out a laptop, which some flyers like. My biggest concerns with them is price and the fact that unless you are willing to go out of country to purchase them, they are gone.

The BeastX is simpler to set up, once you have the setup worked out in your head. It handles sport flying very well, being quite stable, and 3Ds as well as any, if the pilot is able. Watch some of the vidios of Duncan Boison on YouTube. Like the CGY750 it can be adjusted at the field without a laptop and it is cheaper than the CGY750 and available. As stated, no telemetry and you have to purchase rescue, if those things are important to you.

Like others, I've moves on to the MSH Brain2/Icon2, having two of each now. While I don't use telemetry or rescue, they are there if I change my mind. Set up is very easy, but it has to be done on a computer. I now have the setup program on my wife's laptop, so I can make changes at the field if necessary. The price is great, being cheaper than the CGY750 or the BeastX.

From a sport flyers point of view, I really can't tell that much difference in they way they fly, once they are set up to my liking. All three are great FBl units. I don't plan on replacing my CGY750 or BeastX, they fly too good, but going forward, unless something changes, I plan on staying with the MSH units because of the included features, the price, ease of set up and that they fly, in my opinion as good as anything else.

I personally have a preference for units with remote sensors on glow and gasser helicopters and don’t like the single box type designs.

Any FBL unit can be a great on a glow or gasser helicopter if it can be mounted in the optimal location with the lowest vibration levels but not all helicopters allow an adequate or appropriate mounting position unless a remote sensor is used. This is why l prefer a seperate sensor unit such as the CGY750, TAGS01 and VBar.

I have been using 3 x MB Plus in 3 x T700 N for thousands of flights last years without any single issue. They hold nitro vibrations really good. Maybe if the nitro bird is not set up propperly and has huge vibrations can interfere the MB or any other FBL. I tried last year 3 x CGY 750 2nd hand and all 3 had the screen damaged but luckily was able to get my money refund. thats my experience. I trully think CGY 750 is probably a better device but I didnt want to mess with screen repairs and gave up. One of the extra features I needed when i tried the 750 were the fact that cyclic gain could be set up individually for each bank/iddle,while MB Plus couldnt, once you set the cyclic gain in the dial its the same for every single flight mode. Now this has changed with latest SW and MB Plus with +100$ PRO SW can be set up independent in each bank. Thats my 2 cents.

Respect and fly safe
