Both the Ready-to-Fly and Bind-N-Fly™ Basic versions come with a Smart ESC, however, the RTF includes a DXe Transmitter, Smart battery and USB charger. The Avian 30 amp Smart ESC provides important telemetry data without extra modules or wires as well as delivering impressive motor resolution and performance.

AS3X and SAFE Technology Innovative SAFE® and AS3X® Technology make it easy for anyone to fly helicopters with confidence. Flight modes from self-leveling to full 3D allow you to grow your skills with this helicopter, from beginner & intermediate, to advanced maneuvers.

Panic Recovery The 6250HX flight controller employees a fast and accurate 6-axis MEMS Gyro to nearly instantly return the 330 S to level flight with the press of a button should the pilot lose orientation, or get into an uncomfortable situation.

Also FYI for anyone that is flying a 330 S currently, I have played with the tune slightly from stock to help with the tail and to give more cyclic pitch. If you are interested in my tune numbers let me know and I will share

Yes I really want a heli that uses the 3s 2200 of which the majority of my airplane fleet uses. Unfortunately now is not a good time for me to spend money due to the current situation

ESC Amperage


How come the transmitter is not reporting the amperage? Do all of the Avian speed controls (15a through 80a) have current sensors?

I have the same question - isn't there a built-in current sensor?

I re-watched the video. Motor amps is being reported on the left hand side, 3rd row down. What is the "---A" for?

Looks like it is for BEC output current. I re-watched it too

Now if you can watch that status screen at the same time you are piloting that heli, I have major respect for you...haha

Yes that value is the BEC amperage, which is not provided with the Avian 30 esc. Thank you guys for watching!

I just purchased this 330s and setting it up on a Spektrum DX8 DSMX transmitter, the original silver finished case transmitter. I was hoping Spektrum had the setup for this TX on their website, but could on find the setup for the G2 version....anyway, I would like to move the panic recovery from the Trainer/Bind button to the Gear switch, that switch is much quicker to get to, if needed. Advice on this change please

Thanks in advance
Kurtzz
