I truly wish mine flew great. It would save a lot of money to go with the 3g's. I really like the Align products and have 3 Trex's, and was hoping for it to work well. Mine fly's ok, but the tail is kinda iffy and it does not track as well as I would of hoped. I have had 2 3gs for a few months now, and have messed around with them for endless hours trying to get them dialed in perfectly, but just have not been able to do it. I did not mean to be a flame boy, but I am really frustrated with the 3g and after a week of sending emails to Align with no response from them, I am exhausted and very frustrated.

The early adopters are the ones Align should pay the most attention to and get squared away with, because early adopters get the ball rolling for new products.

I called once, but a strong accented woman answered the phone and could not answer any of my questions and told me she would have someone call me back, they never did.

I decided to send an email so I can keep record of the answers, but once again, no response.

It is frustrating, because when I had problems with my CY Mini G, Curtis himself helped me fix it, and right away.

Call HeliWholesalers or Grand rc, they are the other two importers of Align here in the US.

I agree, Align should be able to provide better customer support. As large a market share as they have you would think that they would be providing better support.

You had me at Hover

Tail wag fix....!!!
Hi all. I have had it with the Align 3G gyro for the tail. The cyclic is great but the tail is a complete failure, so I have removed the wires into the receiver and the tail servo, and plugged my old 401 into the receiver. The result is great. No more fishtailing and the cyclic is as good as ever.

A couple recent funfly's have had the upgrade available for free, but the cable is not available to the public yet from what I know.

This is bull. So I have to be at the right funfly to get the new version.

I have 2 of these pos and I read how people are purchasing them with v2 installed! My 250 is not better then with a flybar, and ive been waiting patiently, for nothing to come of it.

Align has no loyalty toward their customers who beta tested it for them.

I want to at least try v2 before I totally give up on all align electronics.

And anyone else that want the V2 now. Call Hobby Wholesaler or Heli Proz North and ask them if they can upgrade the V2 software if you send it to them. I would think they would take care of there customers.

The skookum 360 came with the cable but you had the option to buy it for less without, so if you owned 2 you saved.

I have owned the 3g, both Skookums and a Vbar and I think its a bit wishful thinking to think that 2 dial pots can cover all helis.
I setup 2 600ns with a Skookum, both same servos, motors,power sys etc but different blades, both required settings slightly different from each other to fly good as there is slight differences that effect the fbl units,same with 2 Vbars.
I chalked up my experience to being an early adopter and moved on, would have been nice if it had worked but I hadnt thought it thru
