do correct me if im wrong.
adv: very level and straight flight, less affected by wind, less component to replace/clean hence lighter and most noticable is how fast and less bog fbl helis are. plus u dont need to buy paddles and flybar anymore.
What are the advantages and disadvantages?
dis: price, tuning and once u go fbl, u want all ur helis to be fbl
Do you get more or less power from a flybarless setup?
more due to less drag, weight and other forces generated by paddles.
From what I understand, the flybar helps for stability, give you better cyclic control, and maintains power, so why go flybarless?
the gyro will do all the stabilizing for u.. like the skookum it does it via sensing movement. so when u input stick for forward flight, it tells the gyro to move in the forward direction. it will control the pitch (which is link direct to swash) to maintain that direction until u tell it to do otherwise. so u will see a crazy swash movement not only tilting down.. hence hi speed and torque servos plays a big role. i dont know how flybar maintain power though.. i though power is maintained by the engine
How do you decide if you want more or less weight in your flybar paddles, and wether you want them shorter or longer?
in skookum.. u set the bell and hiller gains.. bell controls how quick u want ur cyclics ie length and paddle weight.. hiller gives u the feeling of lighter or heavier blades.. or something like that.
the feeling is different.. u shud give it a go. its the best upgrade i ever done. i was very sceptical at first but now i regret y i didnt upgrade sooner.. couldve saved $ from buying 611 and spartan by buying the vbar.
