I am selling my iKON flight control systems to switch over to the Futaba CGY 750. I have made this decision for a couple reasons. Mainly I am tired of taking my laptop to the field to make adjustments. Also, I do not feel the need for the auto-level feature. I can't use it on my Blade 300X since the SOKO heli tool does not work with that heli and I'm used to hitting throttle hold in an emergency rather than switching to a different flight mode with the auto-level feature.

I have a 2 V2 iKONs and a V1 (no polarity protection). I have a mounting pad, a USB programming cable, 2 male-male jump cables (serial bus connection), and the 3 way patch cable for each. The patch cable for the V1 has a damaged wire and I can either put a new connector on or include the cable that came with my Tarot unit, which has heavier gauge wires.

I'm asking $190 for each of the V2's shipped and $180 for the V1 shipped in the US. If all 3 are purchased together, I will sell them for $535 shipped in the US.

You can contact me via PM or by emailing ben.beyer@gmail.com

Curiosity question?

Why the cgy750? Why not something else?

(By the way, I'm not questioning your decision, I like the 750, I'm just curious as to what you like about it and why you picked it.)

No problem. Futaba has always produced solid equipment so I don't think I would be downgrading and that's not to say the iKON is an inferior unit. Plus, I can make adjustments through my transmitter so it's like I would get some of the benefits of the new V-Bar controller (unless I'm misinterpreting something).

Right now, based on what's on the market, I feel the CGY 750 best fits what I want to do with a flight control system.

I've had a change of mind and I'm only going to sell one of the iKON's. I will do $180 shipped anywhere in the US for a V2 (set up and a test hover is all the time it's had on it) or $160 shipped anywhere in the US for my V1.

My V1 iKON is sold. The remaining two are back up for sale. I tried the self leveling feature on two different machines yesterday and really didn't like it.

Both machines were set up with the Soko heli gauge too.
