Default I flew the Spartan fbl unit last night and it was GREAT....

...and then awoke from my dream and had to get up and go to work... I tried as hard as I could to get back to sleep and into that same dream to no avail.

oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

I cant wait until this puppy is released. I have 2 BeastX units now but my Quark and 760 I will will never get rid of.


Angelos, do you have any teaser type info for us loyal spartan fans?

MUM is the word, nexgen..

I don't know man. I'm still holding on to my Flybar/DS 760 for that reason alone. With my luck, I'll decide to spend the money on some other system and Angelos will release his at around that time.

Well Angelos, when dude? Is it the Japan thing? Can't get electronic components?

With the systems already in place and now the CGY750 released, this horse will be so late that it will never reach the finishing line, just too bad!

I wouldnt be so sure about that. there were alot of really good tail gyros already to market when the DS760 came out and that was a game changer. Spartan may surprise us with what they have in store on the 3 axis front.

Angelos will provide the discount for the loyal Spartan users based on number Spartan Gyros you have

I was involved with the first run Quark release, if they did a similar thing with this unit, i'd be all over that.

I was waiting for the Spartan FBL offering, but I'd promised myself I'd go FBL for this year and then the CGY750 came along. Brand loyalty only waits (waited) for so long...

I'm waiting for a Spartan FBL unit. I fly nothing but Spartan gyros so why would I fly anything but Spartan FBL? I wouldn't!!! But I am growing very impatient. Come on guys, get-r-done already! But take your time and make sure its right the first time, lol.

I'm ready for a spartan FBL system too.

Does it have a governor? After hearing about these I really want one with a Governor.

Too many people started offering DS760's and Quarks for sale due to moving to FBL. The good condition gyros are going down in price.
I just wonder if Spartan FBL system would re-use current gyros in it?

It's not clear what to do. To sell or to buy?

I can't imagine it re-using current gyros.

The trend in the FBL Market has definitely been moving towards an all in one unit that can do it all, from receiver functions to tail gyro. It would be going backwards for spartan to do otherwise in my opinion.

I just agreed to buy a second hand protos, I'm going to fly it with FB for a month but then I'm going to look at FBL when the dust has settled on the new align 3GX which looks quite promising as a cheaper option, or decide to go skookum.

I hope that by that time there is some info on the Spartan too so I can add that to my decision process!

I'm getting tired of waiting.
When it gets here, it had better be able to make me a cup of coffee.

I'd make do with a good hot chocolate....

So what do you guys think this will be when it arrives? A simple flybarless controller that just does what it does with Spartan perfection at a reasonable cost, or an all singing all dancing system like the Skookum SK720 with a raft of extra features built and planned such as accelerometers for self level, gps etc?

Logging or telemetry would be something new for them, so basic functionality I'd guess. These days a gov is expected too.
