Product description

 

The bavarianDEMON 3SX is a high-quality, compact designed Flybarless system (Rigid) and replaces the mechanical flybar on the rotor heads of all current RC helicopters. Additionally this unit features the well-known and patented Horizontal mode (self-leveling), which brings the heli back to horizontal attitude anytime you let go off the sticks.Moreover, the system is equipped with several safety features, leveling the heli back even while in hard 3D-maneuvers like Tic-Toc or PiroFlip with a speed never seen before.
These brand new features enable a pilot to learn 3D flying in the most safe way ever, speaking of a kind of “real-flight simulator” on highest level.
The stabilization sensitivity (gain) as well as engaging or disengaging this function can be controlled via an auxiliary channel from the transmitter while in flight.

Because they are lighter, helicopter models without auxiliary paddles are much more agile and maneuverable, and are approx. 15% more powerful. In combination with the 3SX, huge performance is delivered, without the need to adjust the fragile paddle mechanism.

The all-round precision is outstanding, whether it is the extremely dynamic maneuvers (F3N flying style), aerobatics (F3C), or hovering stability. All maneuvers are performed with directional stability, i.e. with no disruptive influences at all, and with maximum stopping performance. This is achieved with minimum need for adjustment thanks to the intelligent and optimized control algorithms.

By means of the latest-generation high-quality silicon MEMS gyros, the 3SX has full 3D capability, whilst boasting a top-quality, ultra-fast tail gyro. No external gyro is required. In addition, a symmetrical torque control unit is in place there. The resultant further increase in retention force in the tail was possible because the tail gyro is internally coupled with the pitch data of the rotor head control unit.

Of course, the system is also suitable for flybarless scale helicopters (twin- and multi-blade) as well as all other flybarless helicopters such as trainers, etc., and, due to the possibility of engaging the Horizontal mode at any time, perfectly suitable for beginners.

The 3SX can be used for helicopters with electric motors or nitro/combustion engines as well as turbine models (in case of a turbine inside a scale canopy, please see the safety instructions in the manual on p.10!).

All current analogue, digital and brushless servos are supported, including narrow-pulse servos (760s) for the tail (e.g. Robbe-Futaba S 9251 and BLS 251). All current swashplate variants are also supported, including four swash servos and virtual swashplate rotation (H1, H3-90°, H3-120°, H3-140°, H4-90°, H4-90°+45°).

The system can also be used as a pure tail gyro, without the need of any additional accessories. Especially if a new heli project is planned, first using a flybar, later on switching to a flybarless head, the purchase of an external tail gyro is not necessary. Simply set the Rigid gains in the PC software to „0“, so the Rigid mode is disabled. The swash mixing is done by the 3SX, so even a simple transmitter can be used.

The CNC-milled aluminium casing and the high-quality design comfortably meet the current quality standards of major helicopter manufacturers. The highly compact construction and the flexible installation possibilities enable use in almost every helicopter, from micro-copters through to 3.5m scale helicopters.

• Set-up work is reduced to a minimum, partly because of clear separation of the sensitivity settings for the head and tail gyros in independent auxiliary channels.
• Can be used as pure tail gyro without the need of additional accessories.
• Direct USB connection for fast programming; the easy-to-use set-up software comes as standard.
• The connecting cables between the receiver and 3XS are plugged in on both sides.
• Gold-plated circuit-board and the latest-generation MEMS gyros for all 3 axis.

• The 3SX features direct connection to new single-cabled receiver systems: SP serial pulse/PWM output, e.g. the Robbe FASST receiver R6007SP, robbe/Futaba S-BUS and Jeti/Spektrum/JR-satellites (main receiver not applicable). Consequently, the motor/gas-servo output as well as a second output (e.g. for governor, lighting, retractable landing gear, etc.) are available directly on the 3SX.

• The 3SX is equipped with a flash memory and can therefore be updated in service to the latest software level.

Technical specifications:

  • Dimensions: 36 x 34 x 14 mm
  • Supply voltage: 4…10V (2S-LiPo-compatible, min. 5.5V using Spektrum/JR satellites)
  • Max. roll & pitch rotational speed: 500°/s
  • Max. tail rotational speed: 650°/s (typical)
  • Servo frame rate: 55Hz (analogue) / 220Hz (digital) selectable
  • Tail servo output: 1,52ms / 0,76ms (narrow pulse) selectable
  • Maximum servo currents: total 10A (continuous load)
  • Weight: approx. 18g (without cable loom)
  • Length of connecting cables to receiver: 90mm

I have a spektrum AR7200BX that I have flown hundreds of hours on, and it is a good gyro. But I bought the Bavarian Demon 3SX and I was immediately impressed at the extremely simple setup. I have had lots of experience with skookum sk720 as well, and also vbars, and I have never seen something as "perfect" as the 3SX for setup software. Also the way it flies blows all the other controllers out of the air. It is amazingly stable, and the transition to recovery horizon mode is stunning. It has saved me hundreds and hundreds of dollars in prevented crashes. For the performance, I would be happy to pay even more than it is. If you are looking for the absolute best performance, get this! I have it installed in my SAB GOBLIN 770, and I showed my friend a video of it flying, and he still doesn't believe it is not a screen video of my flight simulator! It turns the Heli into something that is actually HARD to crash for once! If you are a beginner Heli pilot in 6 channel helis, than this flybarless controller is the only way to truly learn to fly without having to crash tons of times.

The others have pretty much covered how good it is. I will add that yes it is more expensive than the standard gyro out there. But, if you have one really bad crash or two smaller crashes you would have made up the difference in the extra money you spent on the gyro in the first place. This thing has saved me several times and it has more than payed for itself. It works so well I put it on another heli. Get it, you won't regret it. Buy once, cry once.

Reviewer:Bevan   
This is an outstanding Gyro that offers features that will enable the progress of your flying skills. The fiinish is flawless and size enables it to be mounted in virtually any model. Initial setup is done using the 'Setup Wizard' and at first appears a little overwhelming however after running through the initial setup of your Heli , offers many parameter adjustments to suit your flying ability , Heli and style. It is one of the easiest systems to use once familiar with it's operation through the excelent computer interface. I have found that once accustomed to using the Rescue feature I'm attempting new maneuvers without hesitation. It really does take the stress out of flying. The Self Level function can be left off or set to two differant strengths returning the Heli to a level stable hover once you let go of cyclic sticks. I've found this feature great for learning new orientations and developing my Nose-in control. If your tired of 'Bench Time' and prefer to be flying , this is the unit to install.

By hobby/tech standards the BD3SX is an old system. Although it is new under the BD name, this unit has been on the market since 2010 under the name Helicommand. What hasn't changed is how doggone relevant and reliable these things are even after being on the market for several years now. With competition capable 3-axis gyros, and the most dependable "works as advertised" self level and bailout functions on the market... The 3SX is worth every penny. It's all I will run in my heli's (until Captron releases something to replace it some day).

What a relief it is, I put the trex550 in any attitude, hit the rescue switch and just like magic the 550 goes into a hover either inverted or right side up based on the attitude prior to hitting the switch. One pile up and it pays for itself, the helifreak setup videos reduce much of the setup time.

For now I'll only comment on the package contents. It is a nicely designed unit from outside appearances and I'm sure is a top performer based on other user reviews. I have a few gripes. After spending $500 I would have expected more than one piece of mounting tape, a printed manual, and the longer connection loom to the receiver. As it stands the 90mm stock connection loom is woefully short and unusable, and surprise surprise you can (i.e. have to) buy a longer and actually functional loom for an additionally 23 US greenbacks. How hard would it be to package an additional piece or two of mounting tape? My $200 microbeast came with more than one piece. Well there is another 7 greenbacks. So here is the real deal when comparing price points, your $500 FBL gyro is actually $530. Well played "Bavariandemon", you've juiced me for more money.

This will allow you to tune your heli any way you want. If you follow the basic setup wizard, you will achieve flight very quickly. Spend some time tweaking it (In flight adjustment can be set) and your heli will fly exactly the way you want. I have this in a 450 and it allows solid flight even with strong wind gusts, and is extremely tight in its feel. Self leveling (Horizon Mode) works perfect, and rescue will level and raise the heli every time. Horizon is great for lazy flights or beginners, while ridged will lock attitude tighter than a frogs behind.

The BD works the way expected each and every time. No issues with vibrations. Setup is a little confusing and one of the harder FBL controllers to configure. But once you get it working it works great!! SL works so well it could teach some bad habits at 30% you can pretty much toss the helicopter around and only worry about getting pitch correct. Captain rescue has worked correctly every time I have activated it unlike some of the other FBL controllers on the market. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to advance their skills with a lower risk of crashes.

I recently installed the BD3SX on my Trex 700N. I had to download the software from the Bavarian Demon website to get started. Set up was easy enough and with the basic settings the heli flew quite well. I will have to adjust some of the settings before setting up the horizon and rescue modes but so far I am pleased with the system. No dreaded tip over on initial flight and heli went right into a hover. I cannot wait to get it dialed in.
