Has anyone heard/read if Align will be selling full kits with flybarless heads/electronics and when?

Should be available here in the US in the next week as it's probably being held up in customs.
Everyone is reporting receiving them across the pond already so we should see them soon.

I think HeliNick is refering to complete heli kit that comes with FBL system instead a separate FBL upgrade kit.

Align hasn't announced anything like that yet, but it would only make sense. I'm sure something is in the works.

Oh you mean a Flybarless Super Pro kit

I'm sure they will be out soon as they will now have to design a new box to make everything fit.

I was not very clear; exactly as steph280 interpreted, I am looking for the heli kit with the Align FBL in the same box.

Also, I was reading the Align FBL manual and I could not see any way to have multiple programs/banks and be able to switch them during flight.

I love the bank switch option on the V-Stabi to be able to pick a different (or not!) FBL setup for each flying mode. For example for "hover" mode a super mild, for "Scale" like flying all the way to flying mode 5 with +/- 14 deg. pitch, 8 deg. cycle and high gyro rates for cycle and tail.

Good point, may be in a later software revision?

You could have different flight mode with varing trims, expo, etc from the TX. But no different modes on the 3G itself for now.

Duke I don't think will be possible with the current Align configuration mechanism of using the rotating pods. The pods will give you only one setup.

V-Stabi needs some external interface such as computer, Bluetooth smartphone, or V-Bar Controller to program each setup. Of course that's makes the V-Stabi more complex.

As with any other device the more options you get the more complex it comes.

I also like that with V-Stabi you can save any setup in a file and re-load it back to the V-Stabi exactly with the same data as the last time it was used.

Me too, this may be possible when the PC lead and software is available, may be other options too, time will tell.
