My best advise would be to do your own research

These threads pop up every week and you are going to get fan boy after fan boy response. They each have their strong points. Price, ease of setup, computer or no computer to setup, 3d stability, speed flying, vibration immunity etc. My suggestion would be to try and then buy what people in your area have so you could get help locally.
I fly vbars and a gt5. Both good but completely different.

You are not going to get a straight answer on this one. Everyone is loyal to one brand or the other. I fly Vbar and i like it, i fly Vbar because i use a JR radio and that Vbar have been around for a long time. If i flew a Futaba radio i would go with the CGY-750 from futaba. The Gentleman that own the LHS has flown my Vbar and the CGY 750 and says they feel very close to each other....BUT what would he rather have? IT would be the 750 as the Futaba radios talk nicely with the 750 for ease of use.

Ace gt-5

it is half the price of an upgraded vbar. 180 vs 366. Thunder tiger makes them. They are a stand alone box with push button setup and a built in screen for setup. I am just figuring it out. I got it to try on my tdr just because the vbar for some has a tendency to pitch up at very fast speed and extreme pitch (+150mph and +15 pitch) These conditions wouldnt apply to most helicopters. The gt5 is supposed to handle those perameters better. That being said, I love my vbars. The tail is great, piros great, very stable. They are 2x price and you need a computer to set them up. I think all the latest generation controllers probably work fine if setup correctly.

Gov is for elec and nitro

Pretty good one too. If you are using kontronics escs, I would say that was good enough to use a fbl controller without a gov.

the best ? for what, how do you fly ? sedate, and just hover? any of them will rock your world

are you a stick banging maniac? maybe vbar

i guess im as qualified as anyone on all the different systems, my personal favorite is futaba, but a lot of guys like vbar.

if setup time and cost is no drama, and you have a bunch of helis to update, id recomend vbars to start with.

The best are not 3g, beastx, skookam or tags.

Best of luck ! and welcome to the world of fbl!

FBL system are like blades, its a personal preference thing..

There is Vbar, helicommand, Rondo, GT5, Microbeast, CGY750,...etc

You can read plenty of post of people switch from vbar to CGY750, vbar to beastx, CGY750 to vbar..etc... It what you comfortable with..

If you want the most expensive FBL system, then I think Helicommand AC3X wins that prize..

Like everyone has said, Its a personal thing, Get some, try them and make your own choice. I prefer the Mikado V bar. If you read up on it you will find it a little pricey, but no one has ever had an issue with it, and it performs perfect. Good Luck and let us know what you went with.

At IRCHA this year I saw a lot of VBAR, BeastX, and CGY750. That's not to say there weren't other quality FBL vendors.

IMHO you need to do some research around form, fit, and function. If you were to vette out the aforementioned FBL controllers, I am quite sure you would be happy with any of those vendors. (Hint!)

In the end you may find that the actual technology or the way the heli performs are pretty similar between vendors. The value add comes from the different ways the controller can be configured. Some use the KISS method, others require a PC and a piece of SW, and some SW is more intuitive than others. You just need to decide what's most important to you.
