And WOW ! this controller is small ! much smaller than it looks from the pics i've seen of it.

It's billet aluminum case is a work of art ! i just can't stop holding this thing in my hand lol, this thing just reeks of quality and thats no joke !

one thing i didn't like is that it had one little dent on the corner by one of the case screws but it was very small.

i found the software a little confusing to use but i believe some of that is due to the german to english translation as some of the terms used were unfamiliar to me.

other than that the setup went rather quickly, i can hardly wait to get this thing in the air !

Just started installing mine, seems very high quality. The software is a dinosaur compared to what Skookum and Vbar offer. For the the price, the interface and instructions should be improved. It reminds me of the early Vbar software, without a good forum to reference, they would not have a product that they could effectively sell.

The sheer bliss will begin once you get the gains dialed in and put a few flights under your belt. In my opinion, these units take second place to nobody!! The tail is spectacular, too.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Absolutely. It's as good if not better than anything out there. There is only one other FBL unit that can compare to an XTreme, IMHO.

Really like mine. I do a lot of AP and fly far away, so the self leveling is very comforting to have when the heli is just a dot.
I happen to have an extra NIB if anyone is interested...PM me.

The cost is probably why they're not as popular, but I couldn't resist picking up an HC3sX when is was reduced to $440 during Esprit's Black Friday sale. Mine arrived in the mail today but won't be installed until The Whiplash gasser is available. I’m looking forward to trying out the bailout feature.

Just another crappy day in Paradise....Aloha!

I too am surprised it is not more popular. It really does run flawless, it is very tunable from mild to wild. If you do not need self leveling the Extreme is what most use. Come check them out at OHB!

Notice he said he has an EXTRA ONE. He didn't say he was selling all of them.

I know what it is like to buy multiple items and then decide to put another helicopter project on hold and realize you have a lot of unusable cash sitting on the bench.

There must have been a reason he bought more than one.

Just speculation on my part, though.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Tyler is right. A little too impulsive on the buy button my part.
