Okay, I've come to the conclusion that I am going to jump head first and get a VControl.
Here is the problem I'm having, do I get the yellow one for 850 that comes with a neo Vbasic or the black one for 700 with the Vbasic rx?
Is buying the yellow one just like buying the neo Vbasic for 150 instead of getting it from the same company for 125? If so that makes no since to me.
I have other Vbars in a few of my heli's now that I can update later, but what I'm needing right now is a Vbar with gyro for a Synergy 516 that I'm building.
Could someone that understands their labeling of Vbars help me out here in making this decision. I guess my basic question is witch one is going to get me the closest to having the gyro I need and not eat everything in my wallet up at the same time.
Thanks for your feed back.

If it says NEO Vbasic, it is a Rx only, no active gyros.
Gyro enabled NEOs are called Express, next level is Pro, next level is Pro Rescue.

Keep in mind the Vbasic can be upgraded to a regular Vbar if needed. But it is not as cost effective as buying a working unit with a new controller.

I also think you may be confusing yourself by calling it a Vbasic RX. It is just the satellite (Vbar Control RX-Satellite) for use with a standard Vbar or Non VLink Neo.

The black radio comes with a VControl receiver, the yellow comes with a VBasic rx. The VBasic rx is a receiver that looks like a NEO and can be upgraded to a fully functioning NEO. It can also be used with any system. The VControl rx is ONLY a rx that can be used with VBARs or NEOs...Ron
