I have wanted to try making one of my helis FBL and I have access to a HeliCommand "rigid" unit. Does the HC unit do 3D well enough to make it worth a try? I'm thinking of converting one of my old Fury Extremes to a testbed.
If the general concensus is against the HC, I'll wait till the Align package gets some reports out and maybe get one of those for my 700.

Thanks, Matt

Matt,

HC-Rigid in extreme mode does 3D fine, but not with the built-in tail gyro. You need to use a decent tail gyro. Even a Fut401 works pretty good when you go flybarless since it does not have to combat as much tail torque.

I've run this setup on one of my Ionx's (essentially the electric version of your Fury Extreme) and had a local 3D guy ring it out. Worked fine. The only tip is to take your servo arms in ~4mm (I went from 19mm to 15mm) to give better resolution. You do the same thing with Vbar as well.

The only thing against HC-rigid for 3D is that it's pretty expensive compared to most other FBL systems, since you are paying for the stablisation feature (which you will not use for 3D flying). However, if you have access to one cheap, I'd give it a go.

Cheers,
TomC

Thanks TomC

I have essentially free access to one as long as I don't break it. Then it's kind of a "you break it you bought it deal" but even that's not so bad as it'd only be dealer cost. I'll have to get started on a follower and whatever other head mods are needed this week to make it work.

Thanks again, Matt
