@ Funguy,

I wonder why the Align 3GX is going for $65. Not saying that there aren't people that have had good luck with them. I would get a CGY 750 over the BX just because of the fact that the BX does not have a govenor.

Also the part that I cant figure out is why someone would be willing to spend a grand on a chopper and then another close to $550 or so on motor and esc and then buy yourself 3 cyclic servos at whatever they are approx $250 to $350 and $150 on a good tail servo and then go cheap on the flybarless system. And all of that dont include buying batteries. I figure if I am gonna spend $2000 bucks to set up a heli another $250 in a good system is a good investment. Do yourself a favor and buy a Vbar or skookum 540 or a cgy 750. It is not a wearable item like batteries are and once you have it you have it.Ryan,Team JR, Team Morgan Fuels, Team KDE Direct, RCBearings.com Tech Rep

Hey if the 3gx works why not!

People sell them straight from their new kit having never even tried them because they read discussions like this!
60% of the time, it works every time!

It is all according to to your skills!
I have observed that if one has decent to good piloting skills( good collective management and flight orientation is down pact) then a decent to really good FBL system will not matter that much.

Even with no bar, one can setup and adjust to the way it flies and make flights look good, some people do not need a VBar or BeastX to make a heli dance and look like really good. Give me an Align 3G an I will make it look like I am flying an over priced VBar. However a 3GX and Vbar is better in a few aspects than a 3G, one does not need to adjust those systems as much as Align 3G to tame it. 3GX 2.0 is really good firmware. This is an recent excerpt from famed coolice on 3GX 2.1;
Having fitted the supplied 3GX on V2.1 into my old 700E which a friend brought and flown it properly yesterday, I can say without doubt it's actually quite good the 3GX now.
If Allen Szabo Jr. can make a heli do all that on a 3GX or 3G, then what does that say about a pilots skills??

You said that resets may be an issue with the 3GX, so why would you take the chance on a $1000 helicopter? Alan Szabo Jr. can make a stick fly, and its hard to say how many times he has had one "reset" on him in flight.
I think that getting an Align gyro right now is a waste of money when someone can get a better gyro that is trusted.

I said "send me a loner" I am not thaaat people friendly. You wanted proof right?
A lot of you guys talk it up. I know I can prove it, so send me one. Shoot if Alan Szabo can make it look good why cant you guys?

I have seen the guys who complain about every little thing on their helis, they are the ones who stay stuck on tweaking their helis all day, month, year, instead of improving their skills.
"ohh look did you see that mm tail wag, I cant fly like that?"
"ooh, I'm waiting for that 8mph wind to die down"
"ooh, I cant fly today, I forgot my neck strap, I'll just watch you fly all day"
"ohh look its cloudy, I cant fly till the sun comes out"
Bottom line is stop fussing soo much over every little thing and rock with what you got!
ITS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN REMEMBER? weeeee

Can you post a video of you flying? I love seeing fellow runryder memebers flights. :-)

PS Have you considered joining team align? They definitly need more pilots.

PS PS The better you get the more picky you become with electronics. :-)

Doesn't seem like one question has been answered, have you setup an align before??? Do you know the system well? If money is a problem I can understand going cheap, if you want an easy setup and dont have a laptop get an Ar7200bx, and just learn to fly with it... If you like tweaking a lot and want the heli perfect get a vbar.... Some of your guys response takes longer to type out than to plug a USB cable into a laptop and open up a program.......

My vote is vbar setup with 3 banks on a switch... Set one up for easy flying and tweak the other two for your style that way no matter what you always have a bank that will just fly....

Well do you think Apple developers wear Microsoft shirts to work

Well one crash and you have payed for what ever system you like !!! I am building a goblin 700 ! I am using a beestx tried and true from a other ship sorry for the spelling LOL . I have tried the align my hobby guy said this would work well and it did on a t rex 600 nitro . I hope I like the gobby I love the fit and finish !!! I like the direct servo connection I had a trex 600 e with an after market frame think rotor works direct servos was a winner sadly sold it for a nitro guess come full circle back to electric . Don't save 100 dollars on the heart of your ship !!! Just think and ask guess you did that . remember have fun !!! Vicfly happy live long
