Has anyone managed to fit this into a HK 450 Pro v1? The frame is already so narrow and space limited.

Well I checked It and I even switched the pins from gyro signal and the elevator stopped working but aileron started to work so it has to be the gyro. It sounds like a grate stabilizer system. I was hoping to by the gyro alone so that I don't have to go thru the process of warranty.

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.
