ZYX-S 3-Axis Flybarless System w/USB Program Adapter
The ZYX-S high performance multi-function 3-axis gyro system is the lightest flybarless system in the world. It is compatible with all 200-700 nitro or electric power helicopters and support 90, 120, 135, and 140 degree CCPM swashplate systems. Furthermore, it is compatible with all types of servos; supports both digital and analog 1520us, 960us and 760us servos. The setup process is quite easy, takes only about ten minutes. This unit also supports firmware updates.
The new ZYX-S version now supports S.BUS and DSM2/DSMJ satellite receiver functionality! This means not only can you use this with your S.BUS radio system, but you can also eliminate the need for using a separate receiver by simply connecting a DSM2/DSMJ satellite directly to the ZYX-S!
ZYX-S 3-axis gyro system provides two different helicopter flight modes - F3C and 3D, which can satisfy pilots from beginners to advanced. It also now supports 4 additional aircraft configurations as well: Quadcopter +, quadcopter X, standard fixed wing and delta fixed wing. This makes the ZYX-S a very versatile stabilization system suitable for virtually all types of aircraft.
ZYX-S 3-axis gyro system has many adjustable options; pilots can adjust the parameter of swashplate and tail servo response, which allows the user to fine tune the handling characteristics of the helicopter. This high performance 3-axis gyro system uses MEMS gyro sensors which allow the pilot to control the flying status of helicopter precisely. Built-in pirouette optimization function; stabilizes the helicopter while pirouetting, making the advanced maneuvers much more precise.
*Note: We have tested this unit on our HK450PRO and are very impressed with the performance. The ZYX-S flybarless system is an unbelievable value at a fraction of the cost of other systems currently on the market. Check out the video below of us testing this unit on the HK450PRO flybarless.
HI WTWUK on forum I see that:
See if you can read this. Logon to forums
Today at 7:31am
I ask to email me and I got this request :See if you can read this. Logon to forums
can you tell me because it so difficult to find informations of my product,can you email me directly?thanks
Used ZYX for a few months at the beginning of my heli jurney and: it's a good system for its price, but it's difficult to tune for an ambitious pilot who wants to practice some 3d. For a beginner it should be fine, easy setup using pc soft, flights well after setting up some basic parameters. But when you try to make a 3d... *) I spend many hours in the air setting this thing up to flight 3d. Well... I finally did it, but it's really hard to do.
Also look out for the vibration, ZYX doesn't like them :) So be prepared to put it on a quite/very soft mounting pads (start with one, and if tail wags slowly and inconsistently, put it on two pads, separated with an alu plate). I recommend (as for 450 heli) to mount ZYX on the back/top shelf, cause inside the frame it vibrates more and it is imposible to make the tail stand still on hover :)
If you have a small amount of money and don't want to flight 3d (or have a lot of time for setup), it should do fine.
Also the bluetooth dongle is a great thing! A big for that!
Generally the PIDs :) At the beginning it was just magic :) But now I know how to use them.
After some time I finally set it up almost as I wanted. Almost, cause I've never figured out how to get rid of tail drifting :( Now I suppose it came from vibrations, bu we will never know, cause I switched to BeastX.
After all it is a good gyro, just needs a little time and knowledge to show it's values, and for that price this is the best choice for now.
Do bear in mind that several other suppliers of this do not even supply the USB adaptor ... It is an optional item. It is also the manufacturer of the item - Tarot - that make it that length. HobbyKing get what is supplied.
I'm at a loss and if anyone can provide feedback it would be greatly appreciated... finally got the zyx and HK-t6a, i have found that none of the servos are responding and the servo movements are not matching no matter how i connect them. does anyone have the correct setup from the zyx to receiver...
i've tested the servos without the gyro, they are working, i've reset the settings on the zyx and radio and still not getting the movement of the radio to match the software setup...
I can provide pictures of setup if needed.
The first page on the settings section has transmitter/protocol/mode option. Make sure that is correct or you might(for example) have it set to mode one when your transmitter is mode 2. All the channels will seem scrambled
has anyone had any luck using this with a 4-blade HK FBL head .. I've trashed a lot of blades and still can't control a hover .. I'm using a JR9303 Tx .. the heli is a HK 450 clone, it flies great with the paddle head and this stabilizer
any suggestions are appreciated, thanks
Hi wtwuk,thanks for yours threads.I bought 2 zyx-s bus connector cable it is ok tgy rx?I have install zyx-s with all cables and in the setup menu I see all my controls but no throtle,pitch move ok.do you have a solution?thanks.
You asked if S.Bus cable for ZYX gyro could be connected to your Turnigy RX 9X8C V2. It cannot be connected to it. No S.Bus cable except the Futaba PWM to S.Bus converter can. So I am confused now about exactly what you are trying to do. I think the language barrier may be the problem?
Before I buy this one two questions please, I have the non -s model and a 9Xv2 transmitter, I am having an amazing amount of trouble getting the servos to work as the software, I can have the servos working as they should with transmitter but elevator opposite to software, each time I try I find I have to choose a new model, and reset XYZ, so do you think my unit is faulty, if so I will buy the later model as above or maybe a different brand, HK is stocking more FBL units which is great, what please are your thoughts
You need to ensure you have no mixing in your TX. Then all settings are done via the ZXY software. Reverse the swash channel for your elevator and you should be fine. It is a matter of perseverence - the ZXY is not faulty.
ZYX even ... Very late! Setup mechanically as good as you can - zero trim or subtrim on the TX. One more thing to make sure is the Piro Optimisation in the last step - that has to be 100% correct or your heli will go crazy! Setting it up seems daunting at first, but you will get it in the end.
WTWUK tks again,
I have no mixing in TX, only throtle reverse, Is it correct I change elevator in TX rather than ZXY. I need to move along the top bar of ZXY to (servo reverse)to do this then come back to setup (monitor)first page and carry on setting end points and trim, I know i am being a bit pedantic but ZXY for some reason (probably me) is being rather inconsistant (I think it forgot its Meds)..
You need to reverse ELE in TX if movement via sticks is incorrect. Reverse in ZYX if it causes incorrect movements. It is good to be pedantic with setting up. Once done, then take meds and alcohol! Heh heh!
Just loaded qty x 1 450pro0407025 and then added the ZXY-S. shipping is $3.99 to the UK. It has increased from the $2.99 but that is due to the order value going over $40 and that requires Registered Airmail. I agree if it is advertised, it should be honoured, but I wonder why you are seeing $5.99?
Not UK, but Lithuania.
But nevertheless - declared FREE delivery is fake.
My Platinum customer status and almost 100 paid orders for last 2 or 3 years cost nothing...
P.S. Probably I will book elsewhere, 4 bucks cheaper and really free shipping.
These are amazing. The new S model now supports planes and quadcopters.
They can also have the extra cable to allow you to connect them to a spektrum satellite receiver so that makes it a super small and neat solution.
It give your the same as the spektrum ar7200 (beastX rx combo) for very little money.
They make setting up fbl helis super easy (10 mins once you know your way around).
Built 4 fbl helis with these so far and they fly fantastic.

the description is not lying. ive tried this on the hk 450 pro v2 and got stunning results in 3d performance.
Una ves que lo pruben en uno, no relizan mas vuelos sin que este intalado un aparatito en cada modelo.

So, I bought this controller to use on a quad...
Still tuning the PID settings, but so far it's been awesome! Heading hold mode is great, and it holds very well. I was flying in 20kph winds with 30kph gusts, this controller took it like a champ. Software is simple, straightforward, and works. The USB connector is included, and it can be used hot-swap style (connect once, then you can unplug the unit, test, plug back in, make tweaks, and unplug again, only connecting it once). Gyros seem to be of good quality, control was never jittery, always smooth. I just wish there was more info on flying this with a quad, as there is very little information about it available. I figured it out though, and it works great (may make tutorial vid down the road to help others out, if there is enough demand).

Awesome price/quaity My HK500CMT flies perfect with it Makes 3d maneuvers quite easy I don't see any disadvantage to beastx (on my T-Rex 600ESP)
