I this case, a "Stick Banger" is someone whom can actually fly some hard core , square, clean, straight, direct in your face 3-D. So If you want to call Alan a "Stick Banger"?, then I want to be one too.

Dats all folks.

Alan is an inspiration and from friends of mine that have interacted with him personally all have mentioned he is quit humble and good guy.
2nd that. Danny too.
He like other pros has his own style and IMO is nothing close to being a stickbanger at all . . .
Neither Alan nor Danny could really be called stick-bangers anyway, cuz their cyclic sticks need only move barely half the max gimbal travel for them to get full swash deflection, due to their preferred styles of build and setup.

They both use cyclic stick limiter rings which are entirely between their ears.

Some old-timers refer to this as making good use of yer meat servo.

Very nice flying, but what is the advantage of being flybar less? I do not understand. New to sport of helis

Short answer: Flybars are used to mechanically soften and stabilize the pilot's control inputs to the cyclic. RC helis will fly without 'em (just as full-size helis fly without 'em), but they're less easily controlled, especially in fast forward, fast sideways or fast backwards flight.

But with a flybarless setup, you not only have a gyro stabilizing the yaw axis (via the tailrotor) but also two more gyros (usually built into one device) -- one of which stabilizes the elevator axis and the other which stabilizes the aileron axis. And without the weight of the flybar for cyclic stabilization (which is now being done by the two extra gyros), pitch & roll (elevator & aileron) rates can increase dramatically -- and programmably -- according to how the pilot programs the controller.
