Will it work to have the positive and negative power lines on only one of the cyclic connections between the receiver and gyro and just have the signal lines connected on the other two? I ask because I'm making short servo lines to go between the gyro and receiver and it will be easier to have all three leads in a single piece of 1/8 flexo if I can eliminate the positive and ground wires from two (5 wires vs 9)

This gyro needs power to the rudder input and also power to either the aileron or elevator input.

Running all the power through just one set of power lines may be marginal for the cyclic?

KauaiSteve - I saw your video on YouTube last night. I knew when I saw the title "Robird G31 with a Beam E4" that it was your bird. Thanks for sharing it with us and I added my "Like" vote. - SDHeliPilot

I'm glad you liked it, it's a great flying area but usaually windy!And finding my heli after a crash is also fun( lots of wild pig down in the valley and heavy under growth)!I emailed Skyhobbies about the firmware update but haven't got a reply yet, maybe if more of us contact them they will give us an answer?

Hey guys. Just curious how the 3gy is holding up? I used to be huge into 3D heli's until I got side tracked, ended up selling most of what was usable on my 450. I flew the pants off of it for a year with Align 3gx.

Well now I have that itch again, But really dont want to spend another $600+ on a fully built up Align 450 3gx.

My passed experience with clones is less than adequate. the HK stuff was junk.

However I ran across ALZRC and it looks like decent quality. Saw one in person and was very impressed for it being a clone! That being said a knock off for ~$300 looks pretty damn good, if it holds up even 90% as well as my align. How does the 3GY hold up? IS it a decent gyro when compared to 3GX etc?

Thanks guys! really trying to scratch that itch!

Personal experience with ALZRC is that it's not as good as Tarot. At least the plastic 450 Sport bottom plates I bought weren't as good as the Tarot ones (plastic is more flexible, lacks the zip tie holes at the front) and the pack of main shafts were very slightly off true (Tarot shafts are perfect and I have no reservations about using them). I like ALZRC's stainless steel feathering shafts. I can't tell you about their CNC parts though.

ALZRC and tarot are quite similar in many ways, both are nice copy of align

Check out the Beam E4 Advantage fbl kit,Amainhobbies has it in usa(California).No up grades needed, frame is roomy so you can easliy fit everything in and it is very tough,the frame sides are1.75mm thick and replacement parts are also very reasonable.Its made in South Korea, very high quality and will save you money in the long run.I have a Copterx Black Angel also but it's not in the same league( more typical of the Trex clones but slightly better ).The Beam is the only heli that I would purchase again (There's a new SE version that has a Beam Dfc head and innovative tail mechanism soon to be released).

Maybe this is a dumb question but where is says "servo left" and "servo right" do they mean looking from the tail or from the nose? I can't find anything that clarifies this.

I'm glad I'm not the only that got majorly confused. I still can't answer that question though...

Yes, from the tail. Think about which side of your car you would call the left or right side.
