Will this be back in stock or is it gone for good?

Hi Hobbyking are still excepting orders for this product and say they expect to have stock within 30 days. I ordered on 31-12-14 so hope to be supplied in the next 8 days. Maybe a bit naive on by part, but live in hopes.

Hello, is it compatible with Robbe Futura SE? Flymentor 3D: Support swash plate 3S 120°*, 3S 140°*, 4S 90°*, 4S 90°* 45°* The Robbe Futura has a H1 mechanical swash plate with 3 Servos?! One for pitch and 2 for Roll and Nick. I think, it is a 3S 90°* 45°* swash plate. There is only a 4S 90°* 45°* listed. I think, the robbe Futura is not supported?! Please support me. Many thanks Chris

Could the Flymentor be used in a way to stabilize a pan/tilt FPV camera?
 WTWUK 3681 points
No. Not possible and even if it were, rather expensive to consider using it for that. Why not go for a cheap KK2.1.5 controller to use instead?

Enlighten me. I just want a system just for the PFV platform and not head tracker etc.
 Stubby01 3 points
or flight stabilization for the airframe, just for the camera platform
 WTWUK 3681 points
The KK has outputs on it that are for controlling a servo-type pan and tilt gimbal. All you would need is a Y lead from your throttle channel to its throttle input to power it and give it a throttle signal, another Y lead for power to the servos in the gimbal. Easy to setup and performs well.

Could you provide a link or diagram? What would be the minimum TX/RX to do such a setup? I appreciate your input and is very helpful.
 WTWUK 3681 points
TX/RX minimum would be no different to using what you need for your model as gimbal control is automatic. In theory, it could be used on a 2 channel car set. Google KK2.1.5 gimbal connection for info.

Can I add a second helicopter to my kds flymentor controller
 WTWUK 3681 points
Only if you save the config file from the first heli to your computer and then complete a new config for your second heli. No way to store two configs on flymentor at once.

Received this last week, I had trouble (like alot of other people) getting it to connect to the pc but after several hours of stress I realised that I had the Gyro and Sensor plugs in upside down. It works just as it says. The stabilization is fantastic and I was struggling to get my HK500GT to fly, but after installing this it flys brilliantly.
Good work Hobby King another fantastic product at a fantastic price. If you are a newbie buy this!!!!!

Excellent, work as described. needs some messing aroud to get it work right, and the manual is poorly written or plain wrong.

The unit have a known problem with spectrum recievers with not powering on corretly every now and then, i have the problem to but only 1 out of 8 - 10 times. I think KDS is aware of the issues and im hoping there will be a fix to it later on.

I cannot complain and give it anything but 5 stars for this price.! Excellent!

It works awesome! I uploaded a video for demonstration.

had some evil trouble first coused by Vibrations (and perhaps Electrical flux)

Replaced the components, and made double foam under the gyro, now it works awesome!

Habe das Teil in meinen hk 450 eingebaut.Den Heli mechanisch eingestellt und dan mit der Flymentor Software noch sauber nachgetrimmt.Das Ergebnis beim losslassen des Steuerung bleibt der Heli stehen und richtet sich selber aus.Fazit ein Supersystem.

I have this on a HK450 and it will sure help me to learn flying. I have Vista on my computer and was not able to get software to work, but when I installed on a computer running XP there wasn't any problem. To get a good result you need to take great care of the basic setup on your helikopter.
