It is possible and will certainly do it. However, CSM have worked out some different tuning parameters for their 720 gyro which are more suitable for flybarless. I did not have to do this yet but will get done soon. However, I am not a big fan of this solution with multiple boxes and untidy wiring. I much prefer a single box fully integrated system.

Funny when a 401 is considered an El Cheapo.

Never said the gyro wasn't good, it is just that for those of us flying smaller helis, the price is a barrier.

You have a winner on your hands Angelos

Hi Bob,

I know you are super busy. Hope this week-end birthday party went well. When are you coming up with the rest of the DS760 setup?

The rest? You mean the PC software setup?

I am waiting for Angelos to release the next version before shooting that video. He said it shouldn't be too long.

The ds650 labels just arrived. Should have some ready in 1-2 weeks. PM me if you want to reserve one. There are plenty of ds760's in stock.

So how does it fly compared to 611 and 6100 systems? Did you get to fly it properly yet Bob?

Oh yes it flew fine right out of the shoot! I had to drop the gain about 4 clicks on the Trex600 nitro as in a hard turn I was getting a little wag...

I love the feel of this gyro. In my opinion better than the logictech 6100 for sure! As for the 611 I just am not that good a pilot that I cant tell the difference but based on my skill level it's every bit as good in it's holding power. Another hard core pilot will have to give you thier opinion comparing it to a 611. I hear that a Szabo is trying one now... Maybe we will hear something from them soon.

In the end what I truely like is it's size and ease of setup and also the ability to update the software! To me it is a step up in gyro technology.

I now want to try the 650 on a 450 sized heli... I didnt really like the 2100 as it just felt odd on the sticks but the 650 could be a 401 killer on a 450!

Bob

Does anyone know if the DS760 will work with the 6100T tail servo?

Thanks

My Ds760 is just around the corner, I can see it right now flying over the Atlantic ocean! There it is! I should get it Monday or Thursday at the latest. I am certain I will be a happy flyer with this baby.

Yes the 6100G works on the same setting as Futaba 9251/6.

I think that's a great idea, but it has some drawbacks. If the hardware is the same, it's likely that someone's going to work out how to hack a 650 into a 760. This happens a lot with computer graphics, as mid range cards often use hobbled high-end GPUs to reduce manufacturing overheads.

If someone does end up hacking it, you'll start selling a lot of 650s and maybe not so many 760s. Wouldn't that pose a problem for you guys?

AFAIK it's a good thing, but manufacturer's often tend not to see it that way.

I am not worried about it. To do that you would need to work out how to decipher the firmware updates. If you can manage that, certain men in black will be looking for you wanting to offer you a job for cracking an encryption algorithm that to date remains uncompromised. Frankly if this ever happens I wouldn’t worry about someone converting ds650s to ds760s but about making his own gyros using my firmware.

Bob,

You're gonna love it on a 450 size. Kyle Stacy tried one this weekend at Ihobby on a Gaui 200. Saved weight over the 401 and seemed to work real well for him.

They shot some video and I imaging it'll be up on RR after they get back in the Gaui forum

What's the price going to be on the 650?

Sorry if I missed it.
