Don't know much about setting anything up past a 4 ch system, but you would need a Tx, Rx and Gyro. The walkera 2403 Tx that I am using is 4 ch and the 2437V is a 4 ch Rx that includes a 3-axis gyro.

Oh yah that sounds like a better idea and simple. I really like this the more I look at it. Do you think you could give me a part list? I think I'm going to pull the trigger and build this! Can't think of anything better than a 450 fp. How do they fly? I couldn't find any videos on YouTube

The only videos that I know of on the conversion that I did are the ones I posted in the FP450 Thread. Not so good though as I screwed up and had my hat to low on the first one and the aileron servo went out right off the bat on the second. I will do another one soon though. You will find a number of the ones using the Funcopter parts for the conversion.

As for flying, I only been doing this since last August, but it flys like an absolute dream.

I will compile a parts list and post it soon.

Also would you say this is a hard build? I haven't done any builds yet. Just setup for 6ch cp heli and changed out all the servos. I have a basic understanding of everything to set something up on the TX as well.

Haven't had it full bore yet since i am only running it on 2s, but it is maybe 4 times faster than the MJX F45 that i started with. I have had a 3s battery in it but promptly took it out while I worked all of the conversion bugs out.

Ease of built I would give it an 8 since you need to make spacers for the swashplate which is what sets up the fixed pitch. Yiu can see them installed in the pictures on the FP450 thread.

Yeah, Multiplex Funcopter flies nicely,but,as has been said,a bit on the expensive side.I think it's quite a nice looking heli,but not keen on the foamie type of fuselage.Quite a large heli too,maybe a little larger than 450 size,but not quite as big as a 500.

I posted a parts list for the FBL FP 450 on the Fixed Pitch 450 thread.

The V200D01 is the only one worth getting, IMO. The CB180 has a flybar as well as a 3 axis gyro, and the two don't work well together. The D02 uses brushed motors and doesn't have the variable pitch tail rotor.

If it were me I'd buy Dsobbe's V200D01 in a heartbeat. It already has everything perfected and proven, and it comes with lots of extra parts. You won't do better than that.

All you break on this heli is main gears (pretty much every crash no matter how small), main blades, and occasionally tail drive gears. In raw numbers, I've replaced about 10 main gears, 4 tail drive gears, and one tail drive shaft. That's it. Every other part on the heli is original. So the total down time for a crash is typically the 10 minutes it takes to replace a main gear. I'll post a couple of my vids of this one flying.

Thanks for the great VDOs!
I have been flying mini 4ch FP for about a year now (I have some GW 9958s and my favourite the H911) but the limitation of not been able to fly in light wind made me think of moving forward to 6ch CP and I recently bought a Genius CP which has not been fun at all due to the steep learning curve. After watching your VDOs I realise that I want a bigger 4ch FP. I was thinking of buying a Solo Pro 228p, but now I think I will go for the FBL V200D01 so I can use my Devo 8s
I will let you know how it goes
