Skookum 720

Yesterday, they updated their web page with information on the upcoming unit.

Two things got my attention:

(1) The hardware exceeds anything else on the market. The processor is 32-bit. The competitors are 12 bit processors.

(2) The unit provides "black box" capability. You can see exactly why you crashed in an animated display.

Yes, price is an issue (TBD). However, this unit has raised the bar for flybarless systems.

I constructed a T-Rex 500 specifically for this unit. I expect to have one of the early, pre-production units and I will post comments and photos here.

This is the link to the specifications:

Very interested to read your findings on it. I have not purchased any new gyros or FBL units aside from my first one, the Sk360 in anticipation of the 720. I was initially opposed to having an integrated yaw-axis gyro, but it ultimately makes better sense for a few reasons- some that I don't yet know enough about to elaborate on.

Just curious Rick- why is this thread in Electric Plane Talk? I think the Large Electric Heli forum would be a better choice.
