Question POLL. Wanted, your experience of the Brain! (the bigger picture)

Hi all,
I was interested to try and obtain an overall picture of the situation regarding your use (or not) of the MSH Brain.

The poll is asking about your experience with it.

I think the options are self explanatory.
Any questions please ask.
Please try and keep your votes and comments objective so as not to skew the information.
Cheers
D

I like the brain very much, great tuneability . Love the cyclic feel.

Only tail tuning needs a bit of a different approach, Love to see a step by step tuning guide from MSH.

This is supposed to be one of the features that a lot want. And only in bail out form would be nice. If it can save a crash or a few it would be great. Without this the hype is poo. Might better stay with beastx or better yet a skookum 540 and have a dream tail at the same price. Not trying to start a war here as I have a new build in progress and totaly stumped on what fbl system to get. All I know is it will not be another beastx or ar7200bx and must have a working governor. READ THAT working governor.

I have two votes. I bought two Brains and the first one works great and have several nice flights with it. It is on my Velocity 50 and is really great. I bought a second Brain to put back on my Trex 600, but it was defective out of the box. I sent it back and plan to sell it when I get a new one. I have since bought 2 HC3SX units and they are amazing. They are pricey, but the Captian Rescue is a work of art. The Brain I have on Velocity flies slightly better than the HC3SX, but I have not had time to tune the HC3SX. So I have replaced one Brain and one Beastx with the HC3SX. Also, I will add that the Brain governor is working very well on the Velocity. The Brain I have is great and is staying on the Velocity

Overall, I think if you get a good working Brain, you will be very pleased with the performance. If you are looking for a self level or bail out, the Brain is not it. The HC3SX makes the Brain bail out look like it was made in the stone age. For the price, the Brain is a very good buy for a FBL unit and the support has been good.

Happy flying

Ok I olso have a hc3sx and yes it's one of the best out there especially the sl.
Bud the brain is olso great and will get better bud we need to be patient.

You noticed already the difference in the latest firmware later firmwares will make the brain better and better.
The hc3sx had olso several firmwares needed to become that good!
Just my toughts.

I have a couple and they work fine ( still working on the Gov on one)

I think they would done them selfs a favor and print a manual !! when you get to the advanced menu there is 0 explanation and you have to rely on these forums to get it runing great and I think that's why some say it's not working right ...

Around about 20 flights on mine (need to fly more). No complaints (after they fixed the tail, even before that it was more an annoyance than anything else.

Autolevel works fine, drifts a bit (still tweaking) but gets it within a few degrees of level every time I have tried it.

Thanks for the responses folks, Quite a pleasing show of numbers.

Strange that over 300 people have viewed the thread and only a fraction have voted who have Brains or many who do not are looking at the Brain section of the forum?

I've viewed this thread, but can't vote for any of the options (don't like to vote other, too vague). If you had a "The MSH brain, will probably be the next FBL syestem I will buy" then I could vote

The OP is seeking input from those who "already" have the brain and are using it, hence
"Wanted, your experience of the Brain!"

Exclamation But one point is missing: more then one defective brains on the same user.

..because I had THREE brains that had different defects:

- The first one worked for 8 flights perfectly - then it missbehaves with 2 Spektrum Sats in
DSM2 Mode.

- The Second one was DOA ...not detected by PC

- The Third one missbehaves like the first but before flight ( fortunately)

So my vote should be counted 3 times to be correct...

My response was in direct relation to this remark by the OP in the post above mine. I've viewed the thread 5 or 6 times, but haven't voted, many have probably done the same.

Can't vote as on tapatalk.
Cyclic - awesome
Tail - average
SL - crap, crashed my heli.

Considering the SL was one of the main reason I bought the brain, I'm pretty disappointed that it's been implemented so poorly.

So it seems then that this is another unit that was overly hyped up by the producers then turned out to be disappointing, pretty much like the CGY750.

Not quite CGY levels, this actually has some merit.
I believe it'll be a damned good FBL unit once everything is ironed out, it might just take a few firmware revisions until it gets there.

Unhappy Tail servo has no input from Brain

I have tried to get my Brain working and everything else seems ok, but tail servo is completely dead. I can't get any life to it regardless of Brain settings. Servo works ok connected to receiver. I wrote to MSH requesting help, but got no response from them. I'm afraid my Brain is broken right from the box.
