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.
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.
You mean like a setup file? Not sure that someone else's setup would work for you, because there are mane degrees of freedom regarding TX channel inverting, how you connect things up etc. If you are starting out, then select the least aggressive setup (think it's called F3C) and just walk through the setup, it's pretty self-describing. But first, look for "zyx setup" on youtube, there are videos that show the process. I think you are best off if you work through a couple of these videos, then try to apply it to your specific setup. And when you start trying the heli, make sure you do it on a level smooth surface so the heli can rotate freely (in case you have made some mistake) and don't get it high in the air until you are confident that everything is OK.
Run up the software and there is a 'beginner' template you can set. There are five in total - Beginner, F3C, 3D Soft, Hard Core and Extreme. The Beginner is very good for learning. However, unless you have perfect mechanical setup, you will need to adjust the odd setting or two for your heli. Don't attempt the final two - they really are extreme! Heh heh!
Really? I'm not questioning your statement, but I'm curious. DSMX is the radio link technology, Spktrms variant of FHSS, right? But wouldn't the output from the satellite be the same regardless of if the link is DSMX or DSM2? So if you bind the satellite towards a DSMX TX, will not the link be DSMX then?
Yes it replaces the standard tail gyro. It is not necessary to have anything else with this gyro, but it is a good idea to get the software to enable programming via PC or Laptop, and also the programming box for 'in the field' changes.
Hi I just recieved zyx and it did not come with any instructions, I was wondering if anyone has set this unit up with a fataba 10 channel radio or just has some good instructions.I tried to load info off the hk files but did not have much luck any help would be great. Thank You
Calm now, one thing at the time! :-) You are using DS919MG on the swash, right? I don't trust these 9x9 servos on heli swash at all. I used HK-CS929MG on the swash for a while and had terrible problems, the heli was unusable even with proportional and differential gains on roll and elevator turned down low (I had a similar head shake you speak of, drove me crazy). The servos I know for a fact work well with this heli on the swash is HKSCM9-6 (strips very easily though), XGD10-HM and XGD-11MB (the latter is what I use now, am really happy with it). For the tail I have used HKSCM9-6, it works well, but the best I have tried so far is TGY-212DMH, it allowed me to increase the tail gain by 5%. So what I'm saying is that I don't think e.g. my settings for the ZYX will help you (happy to provide them though should you desire them), because the servos must be right first. Also, for the tail, I have changed to A lign rotor hub with chinese counterweights and made my own very stiff servo rod from a 700E tail boom support (no need for rod guides with this one, this made a noticeable difference). And you need to try an eliminate every little bit of play in all the parts in the tail as best you can. The heli is very sensitive to the main or tail rotor shafts not being straight, so make sure they really are straight (spooling up to full speed without blades must not vibrate much). When this is all good, then the settings come into play. Currently I use the stock crazy 3D settings (no tweaking) and the heli has never been better (it is very agile though so watch it). HTH
Alrighty! I hope you will be as happy with them as I am! Just got my 250 together again after a crash, invested in an A_lign metal tail control arm and worked some more on reducing play by putting in double bearings in the tail grips (very tight fit, but managed in the end), remains to evaluate. Too bad there are no KDE performance tail kits for the 250, have that on both the 450 and 700, it's the biggest difference in tail stability I have noted from any mod. Cheers!
Yes, I use the A_lign tail grips (the whole tail slider, connection arms, rotor hub and grips actually). Haven't measured the actual difference in torque required by the tail servo but it has certainly worked well. It's some time since I changed, but the stock tail grips worked well too, as far as I remember. Getting rid of play and binding as far as possible are the most important things I would say.
Notice about HKSCM9-6: if you strip your gears there occasionally, just implant the chip and motor to HXT900 and use it again !!! Moreover u can use spare gears for HXT900 in future :)) hope it helps.
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)
