Well all I can add that I own a VStabi(600N) and a 3G (700N).
I'll admit that VStabi is the better of the 2 however the 3G comes in very close, when taking the value for money into consideration the 3G wins for me.

I like the VStabi PC interface but I also like the fact that I can configure my 3G at the field with my radio and the 2 gain screws.
If Align releases a PC interface (which works) and square out a few imperfections they truly have a winning system!

What I don't get are the comments about the 3G not holding the tail well, I use a BLS251 and my tail is rock solid!

I'm just not seeing any problems either. The very few, of the thousands of 3G owners, who complain sure make it seem like the system is bad but I'm happy as can be.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

My tail used to jump but has not done it for the last 2 gallons.

Also its a little wobbly .

But I flew my 600 today with flybar and must say I now prefer to fly flybarless.

So much smoother !!!!!

On the table, the tail servo was twitching like it was trying to find centre...? I tried another 3g complete and another servo, (brand new and out of the box) still the same. The cyclic is great but the tail would wag like mad and on landing, it would suddenly do a half piro to the right. I have disconected the 3g tail wires and put my 401 alongside the 3g gyro.. Nice cyclic and very nice tail now!!!!!

+1 I hate to thrash but,this is kinda stupid,an announced 3 Axis works graet on ciclic but messes up on the tail.mabe they should have called it 2G since it's only doing half the job.

Hey...I found the fix for the tail kick!!!

Just fly it enough until the tail servo stops working...no more kick

Seems the tail servo circuit on my second 3G died, going in for warranty, hopefully I'll get to sample V2 if I get a new replacement with that firmware to see how it is.

the tail twitch is a known problem with the firmware in the 3g.

mine twitchs and has a tail kick to the right at random.

i want to know if you guys have the same bobble on the cyclic when you give it a hard stop

Who cares... its just money...

Thats not exactly what I would call a good system, even the Skookum 360 flies without bobbles, its the reason I got rid of my 3g and went Vbar, I expect NO weirdness and a tail better than my 611, which it is.
No tipovers, autos great, piros are a thing of beauty

Hey Align! Wake up and sort your products out properly before you put them on the market. The 3G is a disgrace to Align products!

I maidened my KDE 700E conversion with 3G last weekend and was expecting the worst because of negative posts.

So now I'm not sure what all the fuss and slamming Align is all about... The heli tracks perfectly, no tail kick and all in all flies great.

As a precaution, all my cyclic servos are powered from the RX and the sensor is cinched down with a Velcro strap nice and tight with one foam pad that came with the 3G. Nothing else was done.

Just another crappy day in Paradise....Aloha!
