As the title states: I have several Skookum 720's I will be replacing this summer.

Which is the best all around Gryo available today. I use a Futaba 14sg & JR 9503 radios.

I am not a 3D flyer, mostly interested in Scales.

So give me your preferences. I am interest with Stabilisation, Return to Home (not really necessary), and GPS Hold.

The main items are stabilisation and position hold. They will mostly go on TRex 500's up to Scales. So I need one that's Scale friendly.

Super friendly set up a must.

let me know your thoughts, Dennis

Sounds like you want a DJI Naza. For the capabilities you are looking for none are going to be very easy to setup at first but there is plenty of online help these days on here or Youtube etc. Any of them will work in a scale heli.

60% of the time, it works every time!

To my knowledge, no FBL units have GPS other than the Skookum 720 black edition which has return home and hard deck (a plus) and the DJI Naza H (no RTH or hard deck). Both have been discontinued and practically unsupported for years.

However, if you can live without the GPS, IKON2 is a great option (...and my next FBL purchase) given their continued support and active development. With built in bluetooth, it's a big plus inside a scale body.

Other non GPS with "bailout" option are: Spirit and Bavarian Demon (formerly known as Helicommand)

Best of luck!

Spirit and Bavarian Demon are coming up a lot. So is the IKON 2. I had a NAZA H on a Tre 600 and sold it, I could kick myself for not keeping it. It worked very well.

The 3SX is used by many scale pilots.

VBar comes up as well.

I don't dislike the Skookum, I just wish they would still support them.

Thanks, Dennis
