@ David. Get the 8FG and don't look back. Many people, including Al T and Ed,use FBL systems without issues. John wants an 8Fg too, but wont admit it. Just because you eliminate the receiver with JR does not make it better. You eliminate the receiver but add a satellite. Tit-for tat. I said tit...hahaha

ha ha you said Tit (additional exhale)

futaba sucks giant donkey d#$k!

@ scott,

you eliminate the weight of the reciever, and the pass through wiring, and the governor, and add the weight of a single sat rX. C'mon it's a no brain-er.

If futaba was so popular for helis AT LEAST one MFG would make a futaba ready FBL system. They don't, you just want another person to commiserate with regarding all that unnecessary complex sub sub menu system in a sub menu in a menu under a category in a heading in the main menu -- too complicated

JR rocks

Me thinks some one does not like futaba.

Yes I know I typed thinks.

I guess I never had to deal with all the sub menu crap due to the V-Bar.

If I had a fly bar with interaction issues I guess I might not be so happy with the menu layout. Viva la V-Bar.

@ helixangle

I see a futaba vs Jr thread popping up. Break out the popcorn.

Johnny,Johnny,Johnny,Johnny,Johnny....come out of the closet and admit you like the 8FG. You'll feel better.

David, the weight issue in my mind is negligible. How much more does teh receiver weigh over the satellite? I crash so much there is more epoxy holding me together than any receiver could ever add in weight.

Seriously, don't over-analyze, buy what you like. Bob flies circles around me with his old DX6i.

Hey, thats an interesting point about most FBL serving as a receiver. I'm assuming that the Align 3G does not, is this correct?
