I built my Outrage 550 in 2008. I took care when building the flybar linkages, adjusted the blade tracking during the maiden and I set the tail gain on a switch so I could switch to a lower gain if needed. I haven't touched anything on this heli except for tail belt tension since then.
Flybars are just as dependable, they just do it differently.

I love both AND I love electric AND nitro, I also love any discipline of flying. My favorite out of all these aspects just happens to be nitro, flybar and 3D, maybe because that was what was common when I started.

Anyway back to V-Bar, I haven't tried the latest Neo or even the grey V-Bar but I could not get on with the blue V-Bar I tried! I spent ages trying different parameters and I just could not get that connected feel, when I got close with ridiculous amounts of paddle sim (hmm I wonder why they added paddle sim?!) the heli would bounce back on hard stops! Anyway im sure things have improved since the blue V-Bar but I was sold on the BeastX long before that. I've heard the Ikon/Brain is even more connected but im yet to try one.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Got to much love for Nitro,I had the Beast X it was ok but wanted something with far less wiring so moved over to Skookum, took me ages to get the right connection and tuning but got there in the end,flies really well on both electric and Nitro and easy enough to tune back to FB or scale like feeling.

It's funny..these days at age 62; having to switch to a job that's not really me; spending so much time with my 99 yr. old Mom and not doing too well financially..about the only time I feel "connected" and in control is when I'm flying my Heli's!

I do a great decending funnel!

hi folks,
yes i agree with you guys, were MSH releasing a protos flybared version of the Protos 700, i would seriously consider it.
that said, i bet after-market manufacturers (main shaft, main hub with flybar, swashplate)
ps: i bet it's possible even without a flybar
