I got to admit, I was pretty impressed. Excellent flying and good filming.

While it demonstrates some power and abit of piloting skills there's a fair bit of bobble going on both on the boom/elevator and tail, I would have personally did abit more tuning or something -- and such before releasing a promotional pre release vid like that is all.

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

Agreed with OIC.

While the airframe looks great...come on guys we know exactily this electric flys because quite a few have posted videos of the 700E conversions flying...it's all the same.

Regardless if your going to do a demo, at least try to tune the fbl system before rushing to post a video. That was honestly one of the most poorly tuned flybarless flights Ive seen on video.

Test flight or none, Align knows better than that. I wonder where Alan is or even JK...they would have never let them post that video.

And another very obviously up front thing...were is that update because I sure as heck didnt see it on this video...

So it's the fbl system that's causing that bobbing? I thought the dampers were just really worn out and soft?!

Wow. Kinda surprised they'd release a video like that or that the pilot would continue to fly.

I agree that the machine needs tuned. Would like to see another take after it has been dialed in for sure.

So you guys are obviously seeing more than I am, which move is he doing where you see the problems? On a side note, seems like you all are being pretty harsh. You talk like it is a competition or something. Kind of reminds me of the harsh stories I hear about at the flying fields.

Every time there is a hard stop, the collective "bobbles".

I have the same prob on my 3g 250 that I cant tune out, yet.

Wow, lots of bobble! Tail does not hold too. Hmmm.... I see that they are using Kontronic ESC instead of Align :-). So, my question is: Whey they stop using their 3G to cure that bad bobble?

Must admit that the pilot is very brave man to fly such bobbling heli.

other than the obvious bobble, the thing looks like its smooth and got tons of power and pop! Im pretty sure align will fix the issues before it gets to the market.

I am sorry, but 3G is already on the market.

Well all that I have to say is I really liked watching that video. I am very far from doing something of that caliber myself but I thought it was quite good.

You just made it very clear why companies can bring stuff out that is to a more trainied eye not right but still seem right to a person that is fairly new to helis.

Just because you see it flipping and flopping doesn't mean its right. The unfortunatally that was definitally not right; that is not a good example of what a good flying fbl heli should look like.

Here is a good example of a heli that has the gains tuned correctly.

Watch at YouTube

BTW, Danny stop playing with that Aurora you were so much more fun to watch fly when you threw down with a Logo 600

Oh and I just want to make it clear. Im not knocking the 3G...its just the one on the vid was so poorly tuned Im surprised they posted the video...

This Heli will be out late April, 2 months left to fix the issues..
we have to know the young guy is not ALAN or BERT..
even the flight was into the night!
Still waiting TAREQ with his Outrage 90E before summer and we'll compare it with the 700ELE (Electric Limited Edition)...
