Kbar FBl gyro


So been looking around at the Kbar Unit and noticed theres 3 colours.
Black, Yellow and blue. Is there any difference apart from the colour and if so which is better?
PS and what is the Fu bar Unit ive read about is it the same thing

Fu-Bar was another VBAR clone but it's now discontinued due to copyright.

Yes, there are differences between the colours. The biggest difference is that the blue ones have governor functionality just like the VBAR from which they are cloned, this is why the blue ones are more expensive. The yellow, grey and black ones don’t have governor. The opaque grey ones also don’t have any status LED's.

I have three Kbar, three colours stand for three manufacturers . There is no difference between them due to clone software ,but i like the version with status LED . But i need to remind you , manufacturers of kbar are not big company and even have no factory , most of them are homework products, so the quaity control is badly , i knew some fellows's heli crashed due to flaw of kbar

There is a difference in the hardware between the different coloured versions. Only the Blue 'Koala' version is fitted with the the governor functionality. You will still see the governor tab in the software when setting up the other types but you cant use the functionality because the hardware components arent fitted to support it.

If you dont use the inbuilt governor then there is little to choose between them other than the LED's. The opaque grey version has no LED's but to be honest that's not a big issue at all.

Actually, the blue ones are the cheapest. You just have to know where to look

That is the gold mini, no governor. I prefer the blue mini. It has governor. They do have a full size gold k-bar now, with gov support

In its title it mentions stabilization system?
Is that just referring to it be a 3 axis gyro or something more exciting. ps Im not going to be using the governor.
