I gave this title
Because I would like to have the view cleared
There are many FLB gyros ..which is the best?
And which is the most trustworthy?
And finally which is the cheapest(regarding all the FBL gyro as a set including the extra sensor)

P.S:I am about to get a Kasama with Gyrobot 900.
But before flying this baby I have transformed a Kyosho Caliber OS37-Hatori to FBL and I am looking for a reasonable price FBL gyro.

What's FLB ? ?

Is this another contraction that was invented while I wasn't looking ?

It is way too early to speculate which system is the best yet! Align just came out, Total G is on the way, this new one out of Germany BeastX is supposed to be very good, and not to mention the other half dozen I did not list. Plus I know there are more companies such as Spartan working on it as we speak.

V-Bar has definitely set the bar but I personally do not think it will be king of the hill much longer. In my opinion, I feel the V-Bar system was designed more for the style of overseas pilots that fly slightly different than US pilots. These new FBL systems such as the Align system is designed for US pilots and I believe it will feel better to the average Joe than the V-Bar system does. Time will tell.

Now that there is competition, each and every manufacturer will learn from their competitors and these systems will continue to improve

Where V-Bar currently falls short is in its complexity. Yes I know many people have figured it out and now it's easy for them but from a pure out of the box into the air time frame, the average Joe will say V-Bar sucks.

We are in the very infancy stage with FBL systems. I can pretty much guarantee you that all of these systems will have software updates at least a couple times this year alone trying to keep up with the competition. The good news is that these systems will most definitely continue to evolve and will continue to get better!

Guys I just checked the AC-3X that a friend mentioned above.
And I saw some videos from the company and also the manual.
I think it rocks and it blings.I must say that it is very nice thing and I am thinking to get it instead of Gyrobot.

I have Mikado and it works great as for some of the others they may be cheaper but I don't think any of them are cheap.
If the market keeps coming out with new products I can see them going down in price then.
After Align gets done flooding the market with there new 3G FBL then maybe we will see some cheaper prices.
Then I can afford to have it on all of my machines.

I have the V-Bar and have no intentions of buying any other brand. The V-Bar set the standard and went through all of the growing pains. They have earned my support.

I was the first or among the first to buy Spartan DS760 when the most of my friends were saying 611 is the epitome of gyros.
One month after they were saying this gyro rocks.
Now I have my ears and eyes wide open as I am a new-tech-lover.
On the other hand the majority of us including myself,we do not have the ability to buy everything and check it before we stick with something.

So after your opinions I stirred those conclusions.
1.V-Bar is the most acceptable and known so far.
2.Gyrobot 900 is nice to let you hover if you have just begin or without hands but expensive.
3.AC-3X is the most blinging one and fine but also expensive.
4.Align FBL system seems nice and expected to be cheap.
5.BeastX very new and really no info about it...?
6.The new Helicommand HC-3X seems nice also regarding price....who knows.

To sum up I ended really confused.
I was expecting to get a Kasama with a Gyrobot 900 when it will be available....but AC-3X got my head spinning because I am not a beginner and I really don'r have need for the free hands option of Gyrobot. On the other hand AC-3X looks like the Knight Rider of FBL gyros....
