Hi,

What do you recommend on a L600 3D. The mini or the full size V-bar.

Just start building a 3D. It came with a mini (blue line), Should I change it to a full size ???

Regards

I have both, they work great. The nice thing about the full size is you can put the sensor away from the main unit, but either unit works great.

I agree. On bigger Helis it is nice to isolate the sensor, however, the mini still works awesome. Hope that clears it up! Haha!

Mini or full size
On anything over a 500 size, I prefer the full size as you have more options or flexibility as to where to put the unit and you can put the sensor where it should go. On the smaller machines, it is more difficult to use the full size because of the extra wire from the sensor.

Well I run a full size on my L400 and mini-s on everything else including my TDR yes 700 size heli now problems. The full size works better on helis with vibration issues like the L400 because you can put the sensor anywhere to avoid the vibes. Mini is my favorite now with 5.2 it governs to me likey..

Put a mini on it because it is rated for it and make for a cleaner install.

Full size... Especially if you have a bird with dual BEC leads and/or SBUS receiver. I've used both on my 600SE and prefer the full-size.

Thanks, all of you.

My 3D will have both SBUS and a dual BEC leads. I have talked to my LHS and the will replace the mini with a full size.

I've always preferred the full size, but both work and fly identical if setup properly. A little more attention to wiring must be considered on the Mini to prevent vibes from transmitting through the cables. No biggie really.

I also like being able to plug in the control panel with the canopy on if needed with the full size.

Nice. Yep, if you're using SBUS and dual BEC leads, you will either have to run a y-cable to one of the ports, or plug in the slave BEC lead to the SBUS receiver, instead of both going into the VBar. Both options are do-able, but kind of a pain when the full-size has more than enough ports for everything.

The added connections on the full size make it the better choice for anything above a 500 class heli. Both they do work equally well. I have both, but prefer the full size.

mini here. 2 of them in 2 600s. Actually took a full size out to sub in a mini.

Why?

In a crash the bottom of the frames can separate from the top. I don't want the wires being pulled out of my vBar sensor in a crash. Also, wiring is much neater... can't see ANY wires with the canopy on.

Cheers
