no way yes the vbars tail is good, but by no means, better then the Beast. If I where you, you need to have another look at your total setup. Befor your bash the Beast!!!!!!!

GOT FBL?

Microbeast tail works great up to 600 degrees/second. Which is surprisingly slower than you might think. I fly just under the max Piro rate but I have friends that struggle with Microbeast because they need a faster tail. It holds great and has a great feel up to the max rate.

My basic problem was setup with other units, now Ill admit I never setup a vbar, but have had friends that have, and as far as align go's, you dont have to take your electronics apart and fill them with silicone either to make them work! Right out of the box, the Beastx is simple .. VERY simple to setup, holds great, and the price was another HUGE factor for me. At 199.00 plus tax.. it is very reasonable on the wallet, can set it up in an hour, and fly. Don't need a computer, no usb to deal with unless you really want too, it just works WELL, and for the everyday flier, which I'll bet 60% of us are if not more, I really don't think there is a better way to go. oh yeah, it works on pcm recievers and on Raptors with mechanical mixing! Best of all worlds

one more thing to look at, look through the classifieds, see how many vbars, total g's, align fbl units are for sale and how many Beastx are for sale, no beastx at all, why?
uhm.. cause they work..

Now it also works on Futaba s bus which will make wiring really simpler. In a couple of weeks the Pc software will come out for those who are really bored and just want to fiddle.

I have flown the beastx, 3G, and Vbar. Flying feel the beastx and vbar 5.0 is very similar. Both tails are good. Vbar a hair better.
I opted to convert my birds to Vbar due to:

* Satellite antennas ( 700 and 600 Helis)
* separate sensor ( Vbar full size)
* Event Log feature - This is a fantastic tool.
* Vibration analysis
* Ease of setup, No cheat sheet needed ( But I am a computer guy for a living ) This is for Vbar 5 and up. Old version 4 does not apply.
* Governor - I really hate my CC gov. Vbar looks very promising
* MrMel (Priceless)

If cost was an issue, I would go beastX

Why don't we just put bouth systems on the heli? Every time a new super update comes out just unplug and replug into the newest update and even fly better.... This FLB thing is just becoming so rediculous, soon it will fly by itself yeiiiii! Every 6 month you can tear your heli down because an even better system is out lol, most cannot outfly any of the existing. Whatever just my opinion. Have a great time updating, I will be at the field flying.

Part of the hobby is tinkering, I probably will not stay long in the hobby if all i did was fly and repair crashes. I like to get satisfaction that my tinkering yielded better results, could be from a new FBL system or a new damper.
