I provide a service with my model fitted out with a 720be and SKU2 GPS unit. Sadly a fault has developed requiring returning for checking. The 720 will not accept the next firmware update to 4.09 and the GPS, having had a successful compass swing, will not function.
So I'd like to borrow, rent or buy a replacement 720.
If anyone could help, it would be appreciated..

Skookum pretty much bailed out of the hobby market.
They are focused on commercial drone and UAF.

You may never get a reply from them if you sent it to them without them telling you it was OK to send it.

You may want to re-post this in the "Helicopter › e-Classifieds - Trade Wanted" section.
And, check the "Helicopter › Classifieds - Electronics" for 720BE and GPS modules.
A lot of people are selling the Skookum stuff due to lack of support.

And, maybe start looking for another RC Heli FBL that supports GPS and GPS features.

Skookum response
Thank you for replying. Actually I’ve been in regular contact with a representative of skookum who tried extensively to resolve my problem as he has with many more following first contact through the website some years ago.
Alternative set ups are being considered which, amazingly, offer more for a fraction of the cost

Yes, Art missed the boat on a number of technology enhancement and cost cutting measures that could have kept him competitive in the hobby market.
Plus, towards the end, he had crappy hardware.

The opensource flight controllers are kicking ass mainly because it is being driven by the drone / quad copter market.
