I only got a little input from people with direct experience on HF, so I'll ask again here.

What are the pros and cons of a floating flybar design, as compared to standard underslung...?

One new advantage might be that it could afford a cleaner upgrade path to flybarless, but I don't really know that for sure.

So far I've heard of Gauzar, Heinseleit, and Enerco 500 coming from Walkera.

Do they have less slop, or more?

Is the reduced drag a meaningful factor?

Is it a lot simpler to set up, esp. for the n00b?

Please indicate if any opinions you offer are theoretical or based on your experience.

Thanks much,
Jim

when the electronics get less expensive I think we will be flybar-less
so it wont matter if it floats or pivots.

The ElyQ Vision-50 also has a floating flybar. I think it results in a lighter design. ElyQ says it results in quicker cyclic input to the main blades.

The Minicopter Joker also has the moving flybar. I don't know what the advantages are of the moving flybar versus fixed, but my Joker flew amazingly well. I think that either design flies well, and in the end the MFS is just cool looking.
