Hi guys I'm posting this from the flying field, I'm so happy I thought I should share, last night I made a fine descision, I upgraded my 450 from 3g to flybars, I pulled those inconsistent ds410s and replaced them with my good old hs65's,for those of you who forgot the advantages of flybar here's a few:more flight time, predictible Heli, more stable in the wind lol(no pitching up and down), precise cyclics, bottom line is take my advice don't sacrifice having fun just because you spent money on 3g, I just had the best flight on my 450 since I converted to 3g, upgrade to flybar like I did and I promise you your headaches will vanish.

You mean upgrading your 450 from flybars to 3G?

From what I understand of it, 3G takes a bit to set up. Like anything, if it isn't set up right then it won't fly right.

I've switched a lot of helicopters to fbl, every one of them had more power and longer flights, while being more stable and responsive at the same time. If you weren't getting that from yours, it needed to be setup.

Point is no comparison to other leading fbl systems out there , please don't trash people's setup, it's just my opinion, I had a 3g on the 600 and 450 and theY flew as good as the 3g can fly, but not good enough for me and I would rather have my flybars and my Spartan on rather than throwing my money away, is it surprising that I had a 3g controller on classifieds for 2 weeks now with no single interest although it's listed for 200 dollars on rccanada? Point is until I can afford another vbar I will stick to my flybars, end of story.

i think the problem with the 3g is people think you can slap it on there and go fly and even though it requires minimum programming you still will have to take time to set it up... ive had 2 on there and both flew great, i decided to try out the 720 cause im a sucker for all the new features

like it's rocket science, 2 screws for gain,swashmixes for cyclics and pitch proper distances on servo horns, what do you mean by setup, is thousands of unsatisfied customers not enough? please for people that write in this post and mention ( setup ) please explain or just don't bother writing anything.

Well maybe you should have bought some real FBL-system and not a 3G in the first place That´s why I totaly agree: don´t sacrifice fun for 3G and invest in quality equipment

I did my friend, Vbar all the way, I honestly thought the 3g would be a nice combo since it came with what I thought to be a nice head but take a look at this
, it happened with a fast cyclic input on my friend's 600, and end up with a boom strike, So even the head is worthless.

im talking about endpoints expo d/r all kind of programming stuff, not just putting screws in... if u actually take some time to program your radio it will work fine... my tail didn't hold that great at first, i put in d/r and turned down the endpoints and it held great, but a screw placement isn't going to change that... and theres a lot more people happy with a 3g than unhappy with it

and where did u get thousands of unhappy customers? ive seen no more than 400 people post and thats been extremely generous for the quantity of products align sales compared to other brands

and as for the head, why would this be any different than a flybar grips? its not like their using a different metal... trying to go hulk on these screws is what causes them to split like that

Are all the 3G units the same electronics? ...they just come with different heads, right?

I never complained about the tail not holding,my tail held fine too, how about piro rate in the wind? and the bobbing on hard stops?

I never said the 3g was perfect... Just like the beast... All these new systems that are coming from people not making fbl stuff before it will take them time to get the programming down... Give them a year before u bash it

You can think all you want, but I can read and have read articles in RC Heli on what they have said about the FBL.

May issue RC Heli on the 3G 700
First thing I noticed was how well it held its position, No trim was necessary.

I began with some nice, smooth circuits and noticed how well it tracked.

If you are looking for the ultimate in 3D performance, then a flybarless system is right up your alley.
Like I said, I can read and it is obvious that the people at RC Heli can set it up and was quite impressed with it other than a minor bobble. It is also a strange concept that they had to do some adjustments to minimize it as well. So yes, I don't have one, but I can read.

I'm at least 2 dozen flights in now with no problems. I did strip on of the servo wheels in a bad auto but asside from that no problems.

Ok, well this came from our own forum:
michael88997 ive had 2 on there and both flew great,
Eury I've switched a lot of helicopters to fbl, every one of them had more power and longer flights, while being more stable and responsive at the same time.
Apparently other people like them too.
