I have a trex 500 with the 3g and am running the CC ice 75 esc and am thinking about changing over to the mini vbar. How many fly the vbar heli off the ice 75 built in bec (have been flying this way with 3g for over a year now with no problems)and how has it been working for you and also do you use one satellite or two? Also is it worth the money on this little heli will I notice a hugh difference? Not really wanting to go beastx because I like the built in receiver so I dont have to have the extra weight. let me know your thoughts.

I'm running an 8S setup on my mini V-Bar 500 using the build-in BEC of an ICE 50 for a while now, no problems so far. Using only 1 satellite, I'm not flying this small heli at a great distance.

I am aware this is not the most robust setup but it is all in the name of minimum weight (and clean wiring).

Been flying a standard vbar with the stock esc on my 500 for over two years now. No problems.

Not sure if that helps or not.

Stock bec on the esc or a separate bec to run the receiver.

Using the stock esc/bec. Not even a hick-up in the last thousand flights or so.

I'm thinking going flybarless and buying the Align 3G conversion package for the 500ESP.

How well does this system work?
Does it make a big difference in performance?
Should I go with the vbar or micro beast?

Thanks.
