Come on guys who's the first to try the new software,

http://www.align.com.tw/alignhtml/3.../3gx_update.php

Let's have some feed back to how it flys and feels, as I'm just a relative noob I want to know a bit more before I swap my 3 units over.

I have it downloaded to my laptop and will soon check it out on my 450 Pro V2 that simply hated V4.0. If the tail gyro function is fixed that will be a step in the right direction. It is good to know that the 3GX unit is still seeing SW support with the 4GX GPro announcement.

Dave I could not agree more, there is far to many people out there with the 3Gx to just dump it, support wise,

Be good to hear your feedback on V5

Put V5.0 in my 450 Pro V2 that hated V4.0. Things are looking good. Didn't get much chance to fly it due to heavy rains today. In hovering around the driveway vefore the eain started, it found the HH gyro function much more well-behaved than with 4.0.

V5.0. Love it, love it, love it. Good upgrade, handles well, NO problems -- 450 Pro V2, 500 DFC, 600 Nitro Pro, 700 Nitro Pro.

Gotta spend this week upgrading my six remaining helis.

V5.0 feels, flies great. Very natural, non-robotic flight feel.

That's great Dave, that's what I wanted to hear, don't suppose you noticed whether the power consumption has been improved from V3.1 as that was hungry compared to earlier versions,

Increased power consumption comes from servos, not the 3GX itself. I suspect if you want tighter control feel and better response, you need to be more aggressive with how you drive the servos.

Better performance usually always comes at the expense of something else.
