Great videos but aren't they for V1 and not the upgraded BeastX V2? I know it took a lot of work but it would be great if Marcel could do videos for the V2.

Good idea, the set up is the same, only the parameters have changed though.

Thanks Helico-pteron for sticking them!


Yes they are for V1. If I find some time, i'll make them for V2.

but the basics are the same just some menu letters were changed

V1 > V2

A > disapeared (detected automatically)
B > A
C > B
D > C
E > D
F > E
G > F
H > G
I > splitted in H and I for clarity
J > J
K > K
L > L
M > M
N > N

regards

Marcel

Extremely well done video series! I have just ordered the Microbeast and this is my first FBL on my own heli. Watching your videos makes me feel very confident in doing both the bench and flight setup.

Your explanations of what the different settings do in flight are very well done as well as the bench setup of course.

Thanks guys. Im glad they are helping out. Once it "clicks" the setup becomes suuuuper simple to do.



this is just a quick one about entering setup to just adjust one setting, and skipping over others. I know some new MB users have worried about this so I thought id post it.

Thanks a million for the vids. I should be getting my first FBL heli in the mail tomorrow, a Gaui X5. It comes w/ a Beast. These videos have taken out quite a bit of the mystery and nervousness I had about building my first FBL heli. Grat job & it's much appreciated!

Need some help, with the setup as shown in the picutre " feeding signal wires to beast only " which would be a sufficient solution adding power to it via Ar7100r?
