If it's one of the newer 3G unit I would put it on and try it out. 2 of brothers have 3G units on their 550e heli and it flies great. Another option is the beastx. Great unit compare to the vbar with a price around $220.

If you don't like the 3G unit you can turn it around by selling it. I have vbar on all 3 if helis.

I guess I have one of the newer Trex 550's as it is only 2 months old with 30-40 flights on it. Haven't had a problem with the 3G. I have a Trex 450 and 500ESP, both flybarred so I have nothing to compare it to.

No tail wag and I also set it up with the Trex 550 tips from Mickey Johnston in the latest RC Heli Magazine Issue...I have been thinking about doubling up the frames to make it even stronger.

Is doubling up the frames really worth it?

550E Frame

Stock thickness is 1.6mm and after I crashed and rebuilt I went with a 2.0mm frame and it wouldn't hurt to add to that. The 2.0mm frmae is a night and day difference.

I,m relatively new to this although I keep reading and practicing. The Sim is where is at. No more tears.

No,,,,Helidirect sells a 2mm CF frame that is sufficient,,makes a huge difference. Doubling up a 1.6mm frame is over-kill in my opinion.

Align should be embarressed for making the stock frame 1.6mm.
