I got to see Kyle Dahl wring out his 2010 TDR at IRCHA yesterday. Damned if it doesn't sound just like it does in the videos. It has a presence in the air like no other I've seen. The only other one I saw there was F1 Rocket's. It was on display at Esprit's booth.

Even team sponsored pilots can't resist flying the smoothest machine in the air!

I flew the TDR throughout the week out at site 3 where I could use as much space as I wanted. I just recently installed one of the new Captron/HeliCommand HC3-Xtreme units and the machine is flying so well its not for sale anymore Matt Botos had fun with it on the main flight line as did Jo Kaulbach from Captron. Both commented the setup was just about perfect. Most folks at the event had never seen one before and all were very impressed. I believe there will be a few more names on Jan's waiting list

Danny,

Can you give some idea of the flight feel with the HC3-Xtreme vs V-bar 4.0? The V-bar seems great so how much better is the HC3-Xtreme?

Good stuff, it certainly is a smooth machine.

I read that most find both vbar and hcx3 very good but it may be a more personal preference thing, its a shame the acx3 is not really available outside europe and i imagine support for it would be hard???

Esprit Models is the USA distributor, no problem getting support here.

Should I install my V-bar or the Helicommand in my TDR? Guess I can try both...

If i had choice between the 2 vbar for sure.

But if i had the acx3 and vbar i would try both for fun.

I've just installed V5 on my 3 machines, not yet flown, looking forward to it

We are simply a Captron/HeliCommand dealer although we do have a very good working relationship with the folks at Captron.

I have flown my TDR with the GyroBot 700, Skookum SK-720, and now with the HeliCommand HC3-Xtreme. All of these systems flew very well and were easy to setup. I cannot compare any of these to V-Bar as I have never owned a V-Bar system. I have flown several V-Bar equipped machines over the past few years. I have the highest respect for the design and engineering and I have never had an issue with any of them as long as they were setup correctly. The sole reason for not having owned one is that the sole US dealer happens to be one of our largest competitors. It’s a silly reason I’m sure but that's the way I feel.
Specific to my current setup with the HC3-Xtreme, I find it very solid, responsive and very tunable. By this I mean that making an adjustment to any of the parameters results in a defined change. Lately I have been experimenting with mixing different head and tail gains (via program mix in the TX) to optimize the machine at both low and high head speeds. This works very well.

Oh, okay. Sorry, even though I followed many posts of yours regarding your experiences with the TDR, I assumed there was a V-bar on-board.
