New FBL gyro from hobbymate ***Test Pilots Needed***

Hello Guys, Hobbymate sent me a couple of FBL gyros to test last week before finalizing production. I was absolutely amazed by how well it flys with my 450 pro.

My flybarless gyros experience includes:

Mikado V-bars
Align 3GX
Micro-beastX

Setup was very easy and did not require a PC. My 2 units did not have the protective aluminum cases on them as Hobbymate was just finishing up on the cases and didnt have them to send me. They will be sending me more units with the aluminium cases to give away for others to test. The first 4 units will be sent to the first ones who send me a PM that is interested. I am looking for experienced rc heli pilots that who is knowledgeable on how to setup FBL gyros and 3D flyers to test it capabilities.

My only requests to these testers to video their flights and post them here for others to see.

I will have 10 units in total to gave away. The rest of the units will be choosen by me by showing me their flight skills. I want 3D flyers. Post me some videos of your flights and see if you qualify.

I will have these new test units in a week or so.

In the following videos below my test subject is:

Align Trex 450 Pro V2.
Scorpion 2010kv 6S motor with 13T pinion governed at 3200rpm
CC Ice Lite 50
Hitec HS65HB's on cyclic
MKS DS8910 on tail duty
Blue lipo 1300mah 30C 6S lipo
Spectrum AR6110E RX




Fbl gyro test (1 min 47 sec)


SUNP0001.avi (4 min 38 sec)

pricing is yet to be determined. All settings is easily accessed on the unit itself, with the use of your transmitter. All the major tweaks is included with minor adjustments as well. Settings selections is samilar to that of the beastx. pc setup may be available once the USB adapter with software is released. The pc is not needed at all however ro fully enjoy this unit.

I'm in

I'll rip the CX 3x1000 off one of my 450's and give this one a shot if you like.
I'm always in to try some new stuff to help other members decide what to get.

Im not into smack, but working on some smooth 3D flight.

Thanks for the confidence Pitch

Hello Whitejoy, I sent you a PM. shipping to your country is alittle expensive for me. If you are willing to pay for the shipping I can send you one. Please respond soon before the slots are filled up.
