What v-bar to buy?
I have flown helicopters for a long time but got out of it for 2 years and just got back into it. I just purchased a new Goblin 570 and want to buy a V-bar for it. In the past I had the full size v-bar on all my large heli's (700,600,550) and had the mini V-bar on my 450. They have now came out with new v-bar units and don't really understand what the difference is. I'm using a Dx9 transmitter and wanna get the best v-bar they make. So what unit works the best, has the most features and stronger case. Also would like to not have to use a receiver just satellites. Thanks you!

Dump the satellites. The new recievers are just as small and with futabas sbus and Jr xbus and I have heard spektrum say version is coming if not out by now you only have one wire going to it and it is way more robust than the sat wires. Either that or go to the vcontrol and eliminate all of that. There are way better setups than the sats out now. I am sure I will catch flack from the sat users but the best thing we have done with ours is getting rid of themTeam Jr

I don't care if I use satellites or not. I just like when the gyro and receiver are built into one. I don't wanna have to have a separate unit for the receiver and FBL unit. Makes everything much cleaner and less problems

Well then get the vcontrol and it is all in one. Then it will be as clean as you can get. What I am suggesting is just that a suggestion. Two sats are bigger than an sbus reciever by Futaba or the same size or a 612bx by Jr. That is less problems than sats. Actually weight wise they are the same. 2 sats 2 wire bundles. Sbus or xbus 1 wire done so that is cleaner. Either that or even cleaner if you are using spektrum which I take it you are is the AR7300bx I believe is the number then it is all built into one. Don't get much cleaner than that either. Any way it don't matter just suggesting.Team Jr

Just to be clear (if it's not already)

• Vcontrol is required to use the NEO vlink (all in one)

• If you fly Vcontrol, there is no difference in programming or setup whether you use vlink or NEO + Vcontrol satellite. If you are just after a clean setup, then vlink is the way to go. But, I have the receiver on two of my NEO because it gives me a little more latitude for mounting location of the antennas. The bind procedure is identical. From the Vcontrol's perspective it doesn't know/care whether you have vlink or a sat rx...i.e. no extra steps because of the rx.

• If you're flying anything other than the Vcontrol the ONLY way you can fly NEO is with the standalone unit + your TX compatible sats.

• If you don't want rescue (ever, and you're sure of it) get a cheap minivbar from the forums. They're a dime a dozen because they don't support rescue. People are dumping them for as low as $50. But, IMHO otherwise v5.3 fly 99.9% the same as v6 NEO. still requires sats tho.

• The only way to fly all-in-one no sats with vbar is Vcontrol + NEO vlink
if it ain't broke, break it.
