A new servo turned up today, so I decided to give it a workout with the 3GYS programmer. I have a couple of other cheap servo testers, but they don't work as well as this 3GY-BOX.

The servo I tested is a Fitec FS9357D. Servo speed showed 0.064s at 5.11V and I could still feel the deadband test pulsing the servo down as low as 1us.

Auto run mode at maximum speed (100) had the servo toasty warm after 5 minutes, so it can be used for a pretty mean burn in test. I left the servo running for 10 minutes at this speed. I then ran the servo for an hour at a speed of 40, and it was hardly warm.

The servo tester side of the 3GYS is a really nice bonus.

The 3GYS sounds pretty solid, i think i will give it a try.

i checked the price of 3GYS on rc711.com today, the prices dropped to $115 with program box and $75 for gyro only.

i bought also the KDS EBAR from rc711 last month, works well on my 450hv pro so far. I believe EBAR is a clone of the BeastX as the sensors hardware inside are almost the same.

Yes, that's the correct manual, but it has some image and page formatting errors. Here it is with this corrected:

Hey, I almost pulled the trigger also. I read the first page and this page. Will I have trouble if I put this on my BlueRay450? It says it has 5 default settings. So this is more than just bolt on and go? I've played a lot with the Walkera 3aixis gyros. Is this a lot more than turning POT screws.

Your going to need a FBL head for the BlueRay 450. It's going to take a bit of effort to properly set up. Have you look at the manual?

There is some initial setup like any gyro needs, in this case for the tail and the cyclic. During this process you select one of the 5 default model settings, based on you skill level (how agile you want the helicopter to be). The manual takes you through it step by step. It's honestly not hard.

HobbyKing finally shipped my stuff... I'm pretty sure I will recieve the heli and 3 axis gyro from hk-parts first since it shipped last week. Hopefully by the end of the month I can give my 2 cents on this 3 axis gyro...

China just had their National Day holidays, so HobbyKing is probably still catching up.

New radio gear and a new FBL helicopter. I can understand why you're excited.

If this gyro checks out great, I think i'll buy a ALZRC FBL 450 Pro head and the 3 axis without programmer for my HobbyKing 450V2.

Yeah, it's really good that they are selling the gyro on it's own. Because of this another 3GYS will be going on my 250, when I can decide what 250 FBL head I'm going to use. Hopefully ALZRC will bring one out. A mini version of the 450 SKD head would be nice.
