Never mind , its the MA version. Just went down to look at which had it. The 450 pro DFC . I am using it with the ZYX . It flys pretty good , I cant get the tail to stop its fast wag . I think its because of the motor though, its a 4400KV.

I think Mac has a Windows Emulator software. You might want to try it.

The EMAX servos works great and are priced right? The ES08MD is a single bearing metal gear. I have these on 3, 450's along with the EMAX ES9258 on the tail. These are digital and work well with Hobbymate and Bigaole FBL gyros. There is a newer dual bearing version of '08 which is numbered ES09 . Not sure if the '09s are eBay. The vendors on eBay do ship fast. Try the EMAX site for info. Bob

They're pretty cheap servos that's why most hobby stores stopped carrying them , you would be better off staying with what you have.

I'm building a Gaui x3 and it s time to start programming my new kbar yellow. I'm having trouble binding it. Is the Kbar supposed to flash like the sats do when binding because mine doesn't.
Any advise?
Thanks

Yep Sat, I'd stick it in a 450 until it's proven itself.

You can use the governor even when you use a conventional RX - with the mini, you have to use sats or s-bus or single line RX's.

The separate sensor allows for more versatility in mounting options, and reduced vibration transmitted thru the wires to the sensor.

It's really suited to larger helis, though there's nothing to stop anyone using it on a 450.
