The next generation of Brain2 Flybarless systems is here! Featuring 6 different hardware versions optimized for different applications, and robust enough to work in any setup from 180 to 900mm size models. Additionally Brain2 still utilizes proven flight performance that was on Brain1, including Nitro and Electric Governor, and vast support for various model types. Additionally configurability on Brain2 is identical to Brain1 in that you can use PC Application, iPhone, or Android devices.
Set Up Guide: A general overview and setup video is available >>HERE<<.

4x the performance, 4x storage, hardware acceleration. Ready for years of feature enhancements.
- Event Logging
Brain2 is always recording the major events during your flight. This lets you go back and review vital information to confirm proper operation or see valuable information to help with troubleshooting
- Vibration Logging, Analysis, and Playback
Troubleshooting mechanical problems has never been easier. Brain2 can play back your entire flight showing you vibrations as the model moves through maneuvers. This gives you a greater understanding of the health of the model and points you to the motor, head, or tail sections. Vibration logging can save endless hours of trial and error searching and give you peace of mind that the model is in good health.
Brain2 takes logging and data collection to a new level of capability. Record up to 10 parameters for each flight and download them later for review. Brain2 provides access to all the critical data parameters visible to the flybarless unit. Some examples include: Voltage, receiver packets, throttle out, RPM, vibration, TX inputs, aileron/elevator rates, tail rate, pitch and more. This information is incredibly useful for tuning governors on nitro or electric, verifying that your BEC or Rx LiPo is performing how you expect, checking if your radio is working well, seeing the real roll/flip/piro rates, etc. The logging memory capacity is large enough to hold several flights of information so after a flying session, you can always download the logs for viewing later, or for sharing with other users.
The Brain2 rescue feature saves the model from any orientation, stabilizing it into a hover and adding pitch to avoid impact with the ground. This is an amazing tool for beginners or those working on new maneuvers where there is a higher risk of loss of orientation and control.
- Use your phone or tablet to configure and tune
Ditch your laptop and use the iPhone or Android application to configure your Brain2 flybarless system. Have instant easy access to the entire system at the field or on the bench to quickly change parameters. MSH Bluetooth module is required for Brain2 systems that do not have integrated Bluetooth.
- Configuration Wizard
The Brain2 configuration wizard gets you flying fast with default configurations tuned for each model size.
Pull every ounce of performance from your model with Brain2's advanced built in governor. Fine tuned from years of continued development. Utilize the built in logging to tune the governor even further, even if your ESC or Nitro has no native logging ability. Brain2 captures the data you need.
- Flight Counters
Track the number of flights of the model, but also track the life of individual components, like gears and belts.
- Advanced Tuning
Tweak to your hearts content. Brain2 gives you direct access to every tunable parameter in the system. Each parameter includes pop-up instructions to help inform you of how the parameter works. As your flying advances, now so can your ability to tune to your taste. Get every ounce of performance from your machines.
This is the same FC and compatible with the iKon FC software.
The step by step Wizard was a great guide to get my T-Rex up and running.The best part I liked was that the servo page was much more flexible to use.Also,I loved that the transmitter page allows you to configure everything to work with any brand of radio equipment.
The bluetooth module was very useful to make field adjustments during the re-maiden of my chopper.It's worth the $6.99 on Google Play to download to the smart phone.I did make one helpful modification to easily switch between the bluetooth module and the USB adapter.The included wire harness found with both modules were cut in half.On the cut end,a four conductor female plug was crimped on the harness plugged into the Brain.The male connector was attached to each of the modules.This saved on wear and tear on the hard to handle micro connectors.A word of caution on the new plugs.The housings are not shielded or keyed for accidental wire reversal.I painted mine for proper polarity.
For the beginner,it's helpful to have an RC flyer that has used the Brain before to assist with installation.The instructions are good but must be read carefully to understand the precise directions.Otherwise the unit flies the chopper beautifully.I highly recommend this flybarless if one is in the market to upgrade their equipment.
I have Flown them since 2012 without any issues!
It all in the proper setup.
Never had a reason to try anything else.
