Default Anyone going to try the SK540?

Looks like an interesting, inexpensive alternative to the Mini-V for the governor.

Nah, the BX is great, but I was wanting to try something with a governor and I need another FBL controller for my converted 450 (the CX-1000 is just too much of a pain) anyway, so I had been thinking about getting a Mini-V. Since this is over $100 cheaper, I though it was worth a shot.

There haven't been a whole lot comments about it, but everything I've seen so far has been positive. There's a guy running one on a Goblin who has said good things.

I should have it by this weekend.

Got the Sk540 mounted and test flew it today. Pretty easy to swap out the BX and mount it in the exact same place. Short test flights went well. Roll rate is insane on the stock settings. The governor also works great.

Pretty easy with the software. I'm still working on a tail issue, but I had that problem with the BX too, so nothing unexpected. I also haven't been able to do a proper tuning flight as they have in their guide because we've had 20+ MPH wind gusts all weekend.

Wizards are stupid easy.. best most straight forward setup yet..

I haven't gotten to fly mine as the Gov is giving me issues using my Opto cable..

but I have faith once I rewire to a phase it will be fine.
