Spirit Pro is the next level for stabilizing R/C models such as flybarless helicopters. Spirit Pro features include electronic paddle simulation, vibration logging, governor, and support for various Tx/Rx types as well as a rudder gyro for those who want to continue using a mechanical flybar. Thanks to flybarless mechanics, the system improves efficiency and maneuverability of a helicopter and its stability while also extending flight times.

Where Spirit Pro differs from the already amazing Spirit controller is the addition of an additional satellite port for DSMX/DSM2 users, an onboard SBus decoder, and two additional ports for bringing power into the system from a BEC or back-up power system.

Because Spirit uses the most advanced technology, your model can be controlled very precisely even under harsh conditions such as strong winds while maintaining a constant pirouette rate.

The Spirit Pro Flybarless System is perfect for pilots of all skill levels and all helicopter disciplines including use as a pure tail gyro on flybarred machines. With Stability Mode, the helicopter will return to an upright level attitude whenever the sticks are released or, with the flick of a switch, the helicopter will level and climb in either of two Rescue Modes.

Spirit accepts all current servo types including 1520us, 960us, and 760us at anywhere from 50Hz to 560Hz. All current swashplate variants are also supported.

The machined, anodized aluminum case speaks to the quality of the product. With one of the smallest footprints available, the Spirit is a match for machines from 250mm to 800mm.

With support for PWM, OpenTX, Futaba S-BUS, PPM, Spektrum DSM2/DSMX, Jeti EX Bus, and UDI/SRXL/SUMD, you can fly the Spirit Pro Flybarless System with any current radio system. Spirit can be used for all electric or combustion powered helicopters.

A real gem
John Hamel (Garrett Park, MD) 5/29/2016 11:58 PM
I have been in the hobby for 5 years. I've owned several VBar's, Skookum's, and BeastX's. Nothing wrong with the other units, but the Spirit Pro takes it up several notches. What separates this unit from the others in the market is all the features for a low $215 price tag. The case is aluminum, not cheap plastic. The power rail is robust, so it will not be the limiting factor for conducting current to power hungry servos. The power rail has 8 power ports, so one can connect extra BEC wires or 2S LiPo wires for power redundancy without needing Y-adapters. The computer software works with Mac, Windows, and other operating systems. The self-level/rescue feature works flawlessly. It is vibration resistant, so it will work when you need it. It can be set as regular self-level or as rescue (self-level with collective pitch away from ground). The speed of rescue can be adjusted so as to avoid boom strikes. I have my rescue(s) set to 40%. The internal governor tuning requires a bit of persistence, but it does work pretty well. The vibration analysis is very helpful when figuring out mechanical issues. It has a BEC tester which tests the adequacy of the BEC and/or 2S LiPo. It has 3 banks for separate setups which is helpful when tuning, as it lets you compare different settings with a flick of a switch. The Log viewer allows you to determine the overall health of the helicopter mechanics and electronics. There are no additional costs for special firmware to unlock extra features. The $215 price of the unit includes all the features and firmware/software updates are free. The developer is very active in the dedicated Spirit forum to answer questions. Esprit Model is also very helpful in answering questions. I am so glad that these units are available and for such a reasonable price.

Very impressive!!!

Theres so many things that make this FBL gyro awesome to me but it would take way too long to say it all. Long story short this thing is EPIC! I tried out a few fbl gyros before this and WOW what a difference. Super easy to setup and has my heli flying FLAWLESS! Im back to pick up another and soon my entire fleet will be using the spirit pro. Rescue works perfectly as well. The support available is also incredible. Im on helifreak a lot and there are actual spirit developers that check in regularly to answer setup questions over there, you just dont see that these days. Keep up the good work guys! If youre in the market for a new FBL gyro believe me this is just as good as the Demon 3sx for almost half the price you wont regret it!
