This is my first time posting on this forum, I just wanted to quickly share my experience with you guys. I switched from FB to 3G FBL a year ago, and got use to flying a 600E-8S 3D pretty well. I recently bought a 550E, installed another 3G unit and had nothing but problems - including but not limited to the famous tail wag.

After a couple of months of testing and tweeking and reading all the forums - I finally had it, I broke down and purchased a Mini V bar.

I upgraded to the pro version, installed it and flew it. It was a completely different helicopter. No vibrations on the ground when spooling up, all the issues that I thought might be mechanical were gone. After a couple of very simple tweeks on the software, she was dailed. The only thing left was a big smile on my face! I can't believe how solid this helicopter feels, it just tracks and holds the last position until you give it input! It is such an improvement over the 3G - I am switching my 600 over as well.

I am so grateful for learning to fly with 3G, because now flying the V bar just takes your game to a whole new level..!

V BAR ROCKS..!

sounds like you had the same expierence as I did. I switched my 600n from 3g to full size Vbar and what a difference. gone are the days of waging tail and random twitches. Those where scary. The heli would turn on its own about 15 to 30degree at random.

Mini V bar
Wow i thought i was loosing my mind i had the same problem i had a 3g set up on my 600n and yes the heli would move on it's own during flight at times and don't get me started with the tail wag and now i have a vbar 5.1 on my god it's night and day the 3g was so bad i whent back to FB and now i have the vbar 5.1 on a 700E and now i can't imagine anything better or more stable man the 3g was crap i think we should start a tread bashing the 3g that thing was awful espicially the way the swash moved by itself the feel was just bad i never felt a good connection to the aircraft. the 3g was so bad after i install it and flew it i thought i did something wrong and that align wouldn't/coundn't put this kind of product on the market so i paid the LHS $100 to look into the set up all over again and $100 later i got the same heli..
i love align and their product but the 3g is just unacceptable!!
the funny thing is before i brought the 3g the pros where saying how great of a breakthrought the 3g was man i got played
and now
anyone else?

Yep, there's nothing like hauling butt - coming out of a huricane inverted on the deck and it does a 30 degree tail tweek right in front of you - to make your heart skip a beat. Talk about really messing up your shorts..! lol Upside though, it sure makes you quick on the sticks!

I watch the guys fly the Logo 600's, they look and sound really good with the 12S set up. That's my next bird for sure. You know the best part of the V bar? I get to finally go back to doing what I do best - learning and crashing..!
