My very first FBL heli, a TREX700 using the 3dX head and the VBAR, wow!!! Great combo.

I never had the chance to fly a FBL machine until today, now I won´t look back. The heli feels lighter, with more power to spare, crisper, just amazing. What amazed me the most, is that pirofunnels are just natural, easier. I can pirofunnel all day long. In general, piro manuevers are easier.

Didn´t make the trim flight but the heli corrects its tendencies just by itself. Don´t know if it´ll need the autotrim flight, worth a try ?

Programming the VBAR was so easy, just read manual and watched VBAr videos and voila, in the air in a couple of hours .

I am excited and looking forward to fly my machine again!!

My comments so far, I am still excited and had to tell you guys

Yes on a dead calm day do the autotrim if you can it is not needed, BUT.... it will make it even abit better imho. Save your file before doing the AT flight etc, also make sure your tr optimizer is OFF during the AT flight, enjoy.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

4.0
It really is amazing how easy the vbar 4.0 is to set up and get flying

I was running 3.6 in my trex 600 and decided to upgrade to 4.0 last friday.

I loaded up 4.0 and trimmed it out on the bench..

Well I went to the field with it today and it hovered hands off and flew INCREDIBLY WELL!...Piro funneled it for half a tank did piro flips etc...I didn't have to make ONE SINGLE adjustment
Tail was ROCK SOLID ...never touched the gain or anything
it is flying perfect...

I have other 4.0 machines but it's been a while since I upgraded them...so I was just surprised as to how smooth this one went...

Kind of hard to beat the 4.0...that's for sure

BTW...I never even did the trim flight either

was flying so well I opted not to bother with it today.

Maybe next time....

With my V-bar 4.0, if I flip the helicopter inverted and put in sufficient collective, it will just sit there and hover with my hands off the sticks--even in the wind. Try that with a flybar.
