Flybarless rotor head systems and why?I'm of the opinion that there are lots of people who do not know how to set up a helicopter, nor do they want take the time. Well I was forced to learn the skills. My second heli, in 1974 was a flybarless Kavan Jet Ranger.My first that I learned to hover on, and do forward flight on was a Graupner Bell 212. At first no tail gyro,then Kavan released one and it was like a miracle. Then because they were cheaper I bought nearly every heli that Schluter made, But got tired of the "blacksmith shop" construction, and bought a GMP Legend FBL. Totally awesome machine! I flew the crap out of that poor bird before selling it to buy an X-cell. In all likely hood, I will be buying another GMP Legend FBL, and it won't need or recieve any assisted living device. I like others here believe in the KISS principle (keep it simple stupid).
THe less electronics I have on a bird, the happier I'am. The worst crashes I've had were from some electronic piece going "bonkers" on me. That would include modern electronics.
Disymmetry of lift is one of the aerodynamics issues that an FBL unit has trouble dealing with at liftoff. In addition, there is no reason that a FBL heli should be squirrly at anytime. I have an older X-cell that flies great FBL, non-assisted. I do lots of aerobatics with it, but not any 3D.
I think there are too many that want an electronic device to do the work for them. Well you will not need to wait much longer, and you won't even need a TX. You will use your laptop to program a flight routine, and then watch the heli take off, do its 3D,and land. Neat technology, but not what I want.
