iKON 2 Flybarless System - The Legend Continues.

The flybarless unit is the heart and soul of the beast at play - a singular device that will effect and influence every nuance of flight. When it comes to choosing the flybarless controller for your needs, nothing is more critical when it comes to the way your aircraft will fly.

Tried, true and ultimately proven like no other flybarless unit on the market today, iKON takes the ultimate next step with the all new iKON 2 Flybarless System From here, everything changes.

Mature and all grown up, the iKON 2 features an all new Rescue Mode feature, providing the safety net we all need when pushing the boundaries of flight. Just as before, the Rescue Mode will rapidly auto level the aircraft from any orientation the moment you flip the switch, but for an added flair, an increase in collective pitch will automatically be applied to arrest the descent rate that is no doubt taking place.

Representing a new leap in flybarless control, MSH has tirelessly toiled to fine tune the iKON2 to the ultimate perfection. Every aspect of the hardware and firmware has been fine-tuned and optimized, and in the end, we can honestly state this system has no other equal on the market today.

Incorporating a faster CPU with built in hardware acceleration features, the iKON line has grown into multiple units that are ready and waiting to perfectly match your aircraft of choice. From integrated Bluetooth options, Micro and Mini versions, and a Heavy Duty unit, iKON has brought forth an entire lineup of amazing flybarless systems that are ready to alter your flybarless experience.

Flown like no other, and pushed harder, faster and lower, the iKON has made its mark as one of the most flexible, functional and easy to use systems available today. But don't take our word for it - step into the all new iKON 2 Flybarless System, and change the way you fly.


Vibration Resistant - Bad Vibes Goodbye.
Flybarless systems hate vibrations - they really do. These vibrations can cause flight control issues, unpredictability, and in extreme cases, cause a crash. With the iKON 2 Flybarless System, we have you covered. The iKON2 uses state of the art vibration dampening systems that keep vibrations in check, equating to one epic flight after another.

Simplified Setup - The Wizard Has Arrived.
Nothing is more irritating, frustrating and time consuming than fumbling with manuals, setup videos and tech help when it comes to proper flybarless setup. No more - the wizard takes control.

Utilizing an easy to follow, fuss free setup, the iKON 2 Flybarless System takes a simplified approach to flybarless setup, allowing you to spend less time tuning and more time flying - just the way it should be.

All New Rescue Mode - Ready and Waiting To Save the Day.
Pushed it just a "bit" too hard with that last maneuver? Still learning 3D flight? Looking for just a touch more security while flying? With the iKON 2 Flybarless System, Rescue Mode technology is a flip of a switch away - saving you (in style, we might add) from a sickening and costly crash that none of us ever wants to see.

When Rescue Mode is engaged, the iKON 2 instantly auto levels the aircraft from any orientation, and for added flair, increases collective pitch to arrest the decent rate that is no doubt taking place. This aggressive rescue feature adds an entire new layer to helicopter flight - keeping your aircraft safe, and your bank account a much happier place.

Satellite, XBus & S-Bus Ready - It's All Up To You.
Offering the convenience of satellite technology, the iKON 2 Flybarless System supports Spektrum DSM2 & DSMX satellite receivers, JR XBus, along with S-Bus technology via Futaba. On the Spektrum side, (2) satellite ports are offered for maximum redundancy & path diversity.

Built in Governor - Ready to Manage Your Flights.
Utilizing a transmitter selectable governor, the iKON 2 brings compact flybarless technology to every level of the helicopter, allowing you to dial in that perfect rotor speed that suits your style - all at the flip of a switch.

Incorporating a selectable (3) switch flight mode program, the iKON 2 Flybarless System allows you to dial in your helicopter with fully adjustable flight mode parameters to obtain the very best from every flight. No more ancillary devices needed on your machine - the iKON 2 handles it all.

Polarity Protection - Keeping Things Safe.
No fear awaits you when it comes to powering up the iKON 2. With the iKON2, polarity protection is built in with all pins polarity protected. Simple and effective, without any nasty surprises.

Event Logging - Stay In the Know.
Incorporating full high resolution logging capability using on board non-volatile memory, the iKON 2 Flybarless System takes logging to the next level via an incredibly useful and meaningful way.

With event logging, the iKON 2 Flybarless System allows high level review of every flight, making it easy to diagnose issues at play. Further this with full vibration logging via (3) discreet axis', the iKON2 offers complete playback of all vibrations and logging support in real time. It's just that easy.

Real Time Telemetry Perfection: (click here for detail)

- Fuel Gauge Technology

No more guessing when it comes to power available throughout your flight. With the Fuel Gauge, you can push the limit of flight time to the very last second, all the while keeping your batteries in perfect health, no matter how hard you fly.

- Low Battery Alert

Depending upon the compatibility of the transmitter in use, this feature alerts you when a discharged LiPo battery is connected to the aircraft, sparing the aircraft and battery from possible damage or failure.

- Onboard Data Logging

Augmenting or replacing the data logging capabilities of the ESC in use, this new feature allows you to access multiple flights worth of data logging capability when no such options are offered via the ESC in use. From cyclic & collective inputs, this data will be logged within the iKON2, and depending upon transmitter capability, can be viewed via the transmitter in use for instant updates or can be analyzed via PC.

- Thermal Overload Protection

Protect your investment with real time thermal data. Monitor ESC temps and set the appropriate alarms to avoid unexpected ESC thermal shut downs and possible ESC failure. With this all new feature, you can push your heli to the max without the worry of thermal overload.

- No Costs, No Extra Hardware Required

Simplified to the extreme, the above features require (1) single wire to connect the ESC to the iKON2, unlocking these amazing features. Simple & effective, this update requires nothing but the basics with no costs involved.

My second Ikon2 and not my last

simple, one word describe this FBL, " Amazing" using in a Align 470P that I was actually planning to put in the trash due issues, Finally for the first time flying great with tail authority and super great response. if you are tired like me with Align just switch Ikon is the best FBL right now in the market.

Ikon 2

The ikon2 is a really nice flybarless that let's you program easily with instructions during every step with the installed app you download. Self level and rescue are built in at no extra cost. I own 3 of them so far and will soon equip every heli I own with one

Amazing ! Amazing and more Amazing

Using in a Protos 380, the easiest FBL, it work out of the box perfect, follow the easy steps by step, you heli will dance in the air is so stable I am planning to test the rescue later, the more impressive is how well they lock the tail, my protos 380 the tail lock like is parked nor a little or a micro shake on the tail. the best FBL

Been out of helicopters for a while and was using Ikon then. Ikon2 is just as easy but more features. Love the ease of setup.

Great Unit

This is my second one and using it to replace one of the early Align FBLs in a trex 600 Nitro FBL conversion that never flew that stable. The programming of this unit is pretty straight forward. Really like the large deadband feature for servo setup, swash leveling and pitch setting. I will probably keep upgrading my "fleet" to this FBL unit.
Also, my new Kraken 580 has the HD/bluetooth version. While a great unit and it hooked me on Ikon, I found none of the HD features to be of much value to me
