I cannot say that FBL flies heli much better than FB, because I did not try the same heli in both configurations, but it took me very little time to balance tail rotor on bench using VBar spectrum analyser, by trial and error adding scotch tape to a blade. Guessing game turned into simple task.

I balanced tail rotor using traditional methods and it was Ok, but when I run through analyser additionally, I managed dramatically reduce vibs. Heli is Protos 500.

So vibar has a way to connect and give you a "vib-o-meter"? that's cool.

I DEFINITLY noticed the difference between FBL and FB.
I've done a 450 and a 500. Both flew FB before the FBL conversion.

The time I used to spend balancing and trimming for a stable upright vs inverted hover was reduced tremendously when going FBL. As a matter of fact, I've found there is no trimming with a proper running FBL.

So, in other words, you like FBL better, as I got, right?

Definitly. My Align 3G systems fly more like a simulator.
Push forward on the stick in a flip and there is no roll in it unless my fingers do it. I'll fly the Flybar'd EXI 500 to warm up one day, then fly the 3G 500 or 550 and I feel like I'm cheating. I stil have not done the popular GOOP mod that people have done on the 3G but I have not flown an outdoor heli in weeks. Too cold for "active" fingers for me. I did spend some up front time on setting it up, but once I set it up, I stopped fiddling with it and just flew it.

OT: I'm messing with that flymentor system and a 450 right now. It's to try to get my son to fly a 450. I want to see if I can use that via buddy box. Set my Tx for just above hover collective and center stics, then if he gets in trouble and HE does not center them, Then I flip over w/ stick centered.
