would i be able to use this on a 450 class 4ch? Namely the MJX F645/45? I realy love the airframe, but the electronics are total ****... might eventually convert it to 6ch so I thought having this installed already would save me from having to upgrade again...

Not really. This is designed for 6 channel collective pitch helis. Yours is a simple fixed pitch variant and should be dead easy to fly. If it is not, something could be wrong with it. If you were to get a Flymentor, you just as well get a cheap HK450, build it, and have some fun!

do you have to use this with flybarless head and how well will it work on a trex 250?
 WTWUK 3568 points
No - this is for a flybar type head. It 'can' be used on flybarless, but is very difficult to configure to work well. You can use it on a flybarred 250, but it is a nightmare fitting it all onto the heli!

Hi, please do you know if it works on windows 8 (64b) because I didn't see any Win8 drivers ? Many thanks Raf

The problem is lack of driver support for the USB dongle. But there is a solution. You need to find a 64bit RS232 driver - google rs232 64 bit driver and get the one from the serialio website.

Damn. Wont show the link. Search Helifreak for the article by Ivor Hill. Very good information. I have set up 2 of these and it works.

Indeed Ivor is the 'go to chap' for FlyMentor setup and tuning. If he has not got the answer, it is a problem that does not exist! hahah!!

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.
