Introduction and question for heli pilots

Hello everyone, My name is Luke and I recently joined the club. I recently picked up a Helicommand HC3sx fbl controller and I have no experience setting it up. If anyone in the club has set one up I could use some help. Thanks

Hopefully Boomstrike (Chris Z.) can point you in the right direction.

Very neat looking controller for self leveling. I don't have any experience in this department and only have an awareness from reading about multicopter controllers and gyro/accelerometer tuning.

Runryder forums maybe?
Or here on RCGroups?
Or RCUniverse?

I have been looking in the helifreak forums, but it would be nice if someone had some first hand experience with the controller that could help me out. I will try to reach out to chris to see what he has to say. Thanks, Luke

Yea, if Chris doesn't have any first hand experience, he might have an idea if any of the other heli club members or friends in the area are running this gadget.

Thanks Chris, I havent even tried messing with it yet. Thought that if someone had some experience with it I would get the help. This is my first fbl controller that I'm setting up so I'm a bit nervous about it.
I probably wont make it to oshkosh due to the fact its an hour drive for me. I might try reaching out to Jerry and see what he says. Thanks
