too me it seems with fbl that it is much more smooth, while fbl can be as fast as you want it does not seem to have that same "pop" that a FB heli does.

A flybar definetly produces more "pop". There is a list of pros and cons for both FB & FBL but for quick pops and low to the ground smack IMHO the flybar still has an advantage.

There are a lot more advantages to a FBL heli than pop. How about the fact that they are more stable in the wind?

Indeed - with gyros and a computer controlling two more axis it's not far from a UAV Just add a GPS and it flies itself.

I don't find that to be true.

Actually a FBL machine is harder to hover steadily than a flybarred machine. This is because while the system is working to kep the helicopter stable, you are actually working against the system to keep the helicopter in the spot that you want it to stay.

Essentially your "fighting" the system. This has been discussed in the FAI forums quite a bit as many guys believed that the flybarless would be a big cheat over flybars, last I heard the flybarless machine was actually harder for them to keep steady in a rock solid hover.

The flybarless systems do great in big manuvers and speed runs thats for sure.

I have no experience or knowledge of FBL systems, but based on how a tail gyro works, it knows the controls you provide, moves the tail accordingly, and you never have to fight a tail gyro. Doesn't the FBL system work in a similar fashion?
