Product description

Key Features:

  • Flybarless technology allows nitro and electric helis to get up in the air without the mechanical flybar

  • Allows for a more simple head design with fewer mechanical parts to break

  • Provides for more power in flight

  • Combines the best of both worlds between stability and agility

  • This is a pass-through unit compatible with Spektrum™, JR®, Futaba® and Airtronics® models (plugs in between the receiver and servos)

 

Overview:

  • The MICROBEAST is a 3-axis gyro system for RC helicopters.

  • This technology allows the user to go flybarless.

  • It has an aluminum composite design casing.

  • The slight dimensions allow it to be installed in practically any model helicopter and can be installed horizontally as well as vertically.

  • The sensory system is based on the newest MEMS technology.

  • Software with sophisticated sensor data processing makes installation in electrical & nitro model helicopters possible.

  • With an optional adapter cable, the MICROBEAST can also be utilized solely as a tail gyro.

  • This is recommended especially for whoever is switching from the conventional paddle system and wants to slowly approach the RIGID operation with the 3-axis solution (3G-Gyro Mode).

  • The well-thought-out and easy setup goes smoothly with no need of an expensive programming box or computer.

  • This makes it easy to still change a number of settings even at the airfield. Moreover, the MICROBEAST integrated swashplate mixer enables the use of simple remote control systems, which do not have their own swashplate mixing.

 

Version 3.0 is now available. The new features of V3.0 are:

  • Reduced swash servo peak power consumption

  • Throttle and Aux channel now directly "online" after power up in single line mode

  • New swashplate algorithm: again more direct and sudden reaction to cyclic commands

  • At parameter menu point "F" (Revo Mix) now also preset values selectable, so computer is not absolutely necessary to use Revo Mix function (only for fine-tuning)

  • Calculation of Revo Mix is now dependent on the pitch adjustment at setup menu point "K", so it is possible to use asymetric pitch values in combination with asymmetric Revo Mix

  • New cyclic response parameter (parameter point "G"), which allows to select a more natural, "flybarlike" control feeling; please don't use too high expo or ATV/DR values in the beginning as this could produce a very "extreme" response of the heli; also only increase the different stages step by step

  • New pitch boost function (parameter menu point H)

  • New tail algorithm, perfect constant tail rate also in close proximity to the maximum rotation rate and faster response when changing rotation direction, therefore necessary to outfly the maximum possible tail gain and only increase HH-Gain (parameter menu point D) as far as necessary (again as mentioned before, don't forget to verify that the tail stick does not control the gyro into "free-wheel" mode)

  • Also as already mentioned: now DSMX® and DSM2® satellites supported and selectable (again don't forget: only the type of satellite remote receiver is important for correct choice in the MICROBEAST)

  • Trim function at parameter menu point A slightly modified, now works quite similar to a transmitter's trim function by tapping the control stick to trim the swash in small steps

  • Now compatible to our new BEASTRX receivers, which support our new SRXL singleline protocol.

Reviewer:PHIL   
This is a good robust fly-bar-less controller. Fast and easy set-up makes for a good start into FBL flying. With many adjustable flight and control parameters and no need for a computer for set-up, this unit is a winner in my book. If you have a receiver and want to add just a Fly-Bar-Less controller to your system, this is the unit for you. Good flight handling capabilities and easy set-up gives this unit a good rating from this flier.

Reviewer:BIGDRE AKA UNCLE    
Simply the best flybarless unit on the market in my opinion. I have this unit on 8 copters so that should tell u how much I love it. Trex 800 trekker, trex700 dfc, trex 600 pro dfc, trex 600 nitro dfc, trex 550 dfc, trex 550 v2 goblin 500, gaui nx4 nitro, and goblin 700 on the way and will have a beast x on it too. My trex 500 has the ikon on it that I won from helidirect for the Independence Day giveaway and that unit is very good too but I still like the beast just a little better do to the ease of setup and change ability at the field without a laptop

Reviewer:steve   
I recently converted my T-Rex 600LE to FBL with the Outrage head and Microbeast Beast X FBL controller. This was my first experience with flybarless, so I was apprehensive about how much harder it was to program/setup a FBL controller vs. a standard gyro. I decided on the Beast X due to all the positive reviews throughout internet land, the fact that I didn't need a computer to setup/make adjustments, and the recommendation of a friend who owns the same setup. Well, I found the Beast X extremely easy and intuitive to learn how to setup/program (just a couple concepts to learn over a traditional gyro) and the heli flew on the factory default settings straight away. The factory settings (Sport mode) made the heli slow and a little vague, probably a good setting for someone still in the hovering phase...I used the "Pro" setting and this really woke the heli up nice for big air 3D type flying! I'm now using the "Extreme" mode, which is better suited to my personal taste. A lot of 3D guys are running the "Transmitter" mode (allows you to fine tune the expo/rates, etc., from the radio), but I haven't found the need to experiment with this as the Pro and Extreme modes work just perfect for me. Compared to when the heli was a flybar machine, the heli has more power, less bogging, tracks like it's on rails, does exactly what I ask it to do and when I ask it to do it, no hesitation in any maneuver, holds rock steady no matter what including in the wind, and the heli even autos better. I'm extremely surprised by the performance gain over flybar and how easy the Beast X is to setup and how well it performs! I'm now in the middle of converting my 700. Just an FYI: Don't use the included mounting tape; use 3M clear (4011/4010, also has a red backer) tape...one piece on an electric machine and two pieces on a nitro.
