Default Skookum SK 720 Flybarless System

Hi all ... I stopped flying helis around 11 years ago ... back on the day ... I used to fly all sort of helis (Trex 500, 600, 700, etc).

I was ok on basic 3D.

I quit helis when fiberless systems were just getting popular ... and never really flown any FBL.

After years flying drones I've decided to give helis another go.

I found a 2nd hand Trex 550E for sale. I'm ok with most of the specs but it comes with a Skookum SK 720 Flybarless System.

As I said I never flown FBL ... so my question is ... is SK720 a good FBL? I will have to learn everything again but my aim is to get into light 3D flying.

In the day, it was one of the better systems to put in your helicopter for any purpose. The issue today is that there is no more factory support or repair capability from them in the event something goes wrong with it. I used to install those almost exclusively in my scale and sport helicopters but now run with other systems. There is a support channel that has guys that still can help you sort out any general issues of connectivity or adjustment further down the line here. I would post any questions there rather than here. Take care and hope you get it airborne soon.

Thanks Don. That helps. I'm not too concern about support / repair at the moment. I got the heli at a very good price ... so as long as I can fly it ok that is fine. I will probably replace the FBL at some point in the near future.
