Come on David - but one of these quick, I'm very tempted to get one even though I had planned to "standardise" on the G31

I'm tempted, but having just bought an iKon, and still having an HB800 and ZYX spare, I might sit on the fence with this one. My X4 head did just turn up for my 425 conversion, but I was going to use the HB800 on that one.

tempted by this but I think I will stick with the ZYX-S controller which supports satellites. I am impressed with how well these low cost FBL controllers work

Hmmm...I guess now we need to hack a new cpu on the 1000 to make it faster...lol. Okay it seems to work fine. Any word on why we can't somtimes change settings on the older one? Is it the gyro or the programming card? Every now and then I get that. Hopefully I won't need to make any more changes as it's set up, but I'll come back and let you know once I get more time with it.

1: Processing time 50 times faster than the 3x1000
2: Able to work with flybarless helicopter, Quad, and airplane (need optional cx-pb-002 usb cable)
3: removable cable for clean and easy installation
4: future update to work with spekturm satellite and s-bus.

Don't worry, the cx-3x1000 will still be available.

And yes, the PB-001 and PB-002 setup box will work with CX-3X2000.

wow!! ehirobo is the best! i got an email today saying they are currently out of the cx-3x-1000 gyro that i ordered with the electronics kit they have, and they sent me an email saying they would give me a free upgrade to the new 2000 gyro!! extremely pleased with how they handled this situation, this definitely puts ehirobo at the top of my list for favorite websites! thanks ehirobo! anyone that says ehirobo has bad customer service is crazy, i've never had such great response time from anyone! well, i guess i'll let you guys know how the new gyro is in about 2 weeks

I got no problem with putting out a new gyro!
I got a problem with the fact that they have not offered any updates for reported problems on the 1000 version.
Its to the point everyone is cross flashing to the ZYX in an attempt to fix problems.
Yet last report from them was "There is no reason for firmware update"
I got one that I can not even put on a heli because It just shake like a scared dog just sitting on the bench with no movement what so ever!

That is for the gain for the 3 axis, and it works at the sametime with the gain setting inside the setup box / cable (pb001 and pb002). Usually just leave it at factory setting, setup the heli, test fly it. And can do fine adjustment without connecting the gyro to the setup box and cable.

Don't think it is possible. as the chip is smaller and the board is different as well.....

copterX do have new firmware for the 3x1000, the new one any better?

Look under software. if there are still issue please let me know and I will talk to their engineer. BTW: one thing you can try is turn down the gain slightly as the gain set too high will cause the heli to shake. And remember to follow the recommanded servo horn lenght.

ALZRC never had an update for the original 3GYS either. Granted I thought the stock firmware was pretty decent from day one but it would have been nice for some support..

BTW...Helicox TG-1 seems to have also been updating their firmware. Looking at the manual it mentions fix wing and quad function..

I have the CX-3x1000 and a Robird G31, I'm equally disappointed with both. I can get them both to fly, but compared to my mCPx, both fly like . I recently bought a Total-G, still playing with it and have not flown it, but from what I have read, it should be much better and for what the Total-G costs, that better be true.

I can't wait to see what this one has to offer.

I'm not sure whether the pots are a good idea, as this limits installation options and is something else to go wrong. I can't see how the pots and the PC software work together yet. It would be nice if the pots can be overridden, but I can't see how this can be possible with the same v1.2 PC software.
BF whats your favorite out of the cheapo gyro's i want to try something else other then my zyxs even though its been good to me i want to build another heli just to try another gyro lol
