Default FlyWing H1 helicopter flight controller

Hello all,
I am looking for a helicopter flight controller. I have come accross the FlyWing H1. It looks affordable and good enough. I have not been able to find any reviews or test results on the internet. I would be very happy if any of you know anything on this flight controller and share your thoughts here.
Thanks,
Ahmet

It's very new and untested. it could be great or could be 'not so good'. I dont think anyone knows at this point.

I am supposed to be getting one for review so if/when i get hold of it I'll know more.

It will be at least a couple of weeks as it has to ship from China. But as soon as i have it I'll do a first impressions review.

I have two units on two helis right now. One on Trex 550 E and another on Agile 5.5. I have been using them for little over 10 flights combined. So far so good. It does as per the product descriptions (fly in circle, figure 8, return home, GPS mode etc). Position hold is more accurate than Naza H that I am also using on my other helis. It holds position and maintain altitude better IMO compared to Naza H (probably due to more recent technology). About the reliability, the jury is still out. I hired a guy to install and set up for me.

Hello kittiwat1,
it sounds good enough for me. Thanks for sharing.
Please put a photo of your fleet if you feel like it.

It looks like it's a motorized tail only and it's s-bus only.

helibel,
FW450 3D RC Helicopter with H1 GPS Heli Autopilot combo set has tail rotor with an esc driven brushles motor and prop.
I have not yet came accross a proper H1 Autopilot user manual.
I don't think there is one yet.
Shame.

It wouldn't be suitable for a large helicopter.There is a downloadable manual on their site,i downloaded it to what it was all about.I think it's ok for a small heli.There are videos on youtube showing it on a 380.

You can download their manual here:

Mine are installed in two 550 size helis. The local HBS where I bought them have successfully installed several on 700 size helis.

So a motorized tail rotor is ok for a large heli then?I just took off a naza-h from my trex 550 to put on a trex 700 blackshark.I never thought a motor tail would be that good.I'll wait till i see a video of a 550 or 700 flying with one.

I've just seen a video of a trex 550 on youtube using the H1.The pilot was testing the tail slider before takeoff.How come if it has a motorized tail,am i missing something?

helibeli,
on FW450 (for yaw) control an esc drives a brushless motor.
It could have been a traditional servo set up.

H1 flight controller rudder port sends the same signal to whatever it is connected to.
Servos and esc's work with the same signal.
On advanced controllers you can select the type of signal from the menu which best suits your esc or servo.

Thanks for that.After reading the manual in detail i see it can be a motor or a servo.It seems more sophisticated than anything else on the market.Pity i don't have an s-bus system.

How do you power these units...through the servo bus or is there a separate connection somewhere.

I assume it comes with a tailboom mount for the GPS module?

Maybe I will re phrase my question...which port do you plug your BEC into, to power the unit and the servos.

Looking at the manual the Li-po plugs directly to a port on the main FC.No BEC required.
