Hello guys,

Has anyone tried this system on a 500-600 size electric heli and can comment on performance ?

thanks.

Gaui FBL for scale build?
I am interested too. Has anybody tried this system at all? How is it for a scale build?

The Gaui unit using Piezo gyro technology, not good, not good at all...
Drifting is almost a given.

I've heard that they don't work well at all. Save your money and invest in technology which has a proven track record.

Thank you both for the reply. I purchased a Skookum 360, but wondered if the Gaui will fit my purpose. I will fly a Swift 16 in a scale .30 size Century Bell 222. It will be flybarless. I read where most state that helis without flybars are twitchy and require a good amount of stick input when there is no FBL system. I learned on small helis like T-Rex 450, EF Shogun, Blade CP, Helimax Axe cpv3. These all required a fair amount of controlling the sticks. Also, from what I understand piezo as opposed to HH is preferred for the tail of a scale heli. With these things in mind, just how bad could the Gaui unit be? I also wonder because on the scale flying or rcaerodyne website that is the unit they sell. They do not sell the other units. Do either of you have experience with the Skookum? If so, can you give me a quick review and compare it to the v-bar if you have experience with both? I also like the v-bar and I think I will put the mini v on my Rave and one on my T-Rex 500ESP. Once again, thank you both for your input.

I've never flown a Skookum, but others say they are top notch.

A low quality FBL system will take most of the fun out of flying your helicopter. The heli will wobble and bobble around in flight, and the tail will slide out from under you. If you're just into hovering, it might be OK, but most of the hardcore 3D moves require a very good FBL unit to avoid wobble.

You know that Align is about to release a FBL unit, and it will probably be much cheaper than the V-bar?

I have a 365, and it works fine. I'm actually not currently using it, but I flew it on my Atom and Outrage G5. It works like any other FBL unit, the heli was more stable than with a flybar, but had faster cyclics. I never had any real problem with it other than it was very sensitive to vibrations, and it would drift in cold weather.

Eury,

I purchased a Skookum and a 365 because I got them for a good deal. Can you give me some pointers on the 365? What can I expect from the unit? As I said I will use it in a scale model so I will fly the tail in rate mode anyway. How do you get drift in the pitch and roll axes? This will go in a .30 size Century Funkey Bell 222. It has a Swift 16 inside. Should I use a separate tail gyro? Thank you

I don't have any pointers, I just followed the instructions and made sure my heli was perfectly smooth. The tail behaved very similarly to a 401. The drift with changes in temperatures was just like you'd get with a tail gyro that drifts except on cyclic.
