OK so I got smarter.

The three neck straps worked well but two works better and isn't as busy looking.
Also with the one strap on the bottom attachment fittings adjustment in tilt of the TX is easier to do.

I like it! Very stabile.

Coming up on 100 flights on the wax lube on the slant gear of my G770.
I see no wear on the gear which makes me happy and no oily residue everywhere which makes me even happier.
My first 100 flights wore out my original slant gear which was lubed with everything I could think of but wax.
The second 100 flights I have flown much more aggressively than the first 100 so the wax is really doing a good job.
I have been religious on reapplying the wax lube every 10 flights.

Great idea! But I just use a TX tray myself. Same thing I guess. Also, I haven't noticed any wear whatsoever either since I started waxing. Pretty much as I expected to be honest. Just a new looking shiny gear time after time. Kinda cool isn't it?

Nice canopy btw!

I thought of using a tray but thought the straps would negotiate my six pack which has some how turned into a quarter barrel.

Wax lube is the ticket for sure.

Super canopy zhnme523...it's mesmerizing.

Lol, the guy I had build my Tx tray put in an adjustable belly tray extension. Big or small the tray slides in and out so the belly issue isn't an issue.

Very cool.

I guess for both of us laughing while flying is prohibited.
Not to worried about the size of my belly as long as my arms can still reach the TX.

All kidding aside with the two strap arrangement for my TX I can now be comfortable with pinching the sticks instead of thumbing,

Yeah, that is really the point! I had to start pinching this year myself. And had to address the way the Tx was strapped also.

We even had a new (older like us) guy out hovering his small Eflite 450 that was really struggling through the summer. I stuffed a flymentor on it and a set of 600 shortened skids. That really helped him. But he was still struggling and I asked him a few questions. The next time I hit the field I gave my expensive Jeti Tx tray to him to use. I did keep my expensive Jeti strap though, and set him up with double Spektrums. He has a much bigger ahhmm.... love handle, yeah that's what it should be called, than I do. Being kinda skinnier myself the tray didn't work as well for me. During his first flight I thought he would split his lip from the huge grin on his face. So for some of us, this is the ticket. I know it really helped me this year for sure also.

Hey, a question if I may? I have been struggling to hit my magic Sk cyclic numbers with the recommended servo arm dimensions. 15/16mm. I even ran mine out to 17 then 19. What are you guys using here?

On my 770 I run blue align horns on the inside hole which I believe is 18mm.

Wow! I don't know what changes I made when changing from the Futaba 7C to the 8FG, but my Goblin 500 is locked in! My flying today was so great club members were coming over and again asking what fbl controller I was using.

Doesn't get any better than that! Congrats on your super flights!
Futaba does make some fine equipment but if I were a betting man I would bet it was all you. Flying with a new TX made your focus and concentration that much sharper producing the flights you had.
Good equipment is one thing but without the ability of the pilot, equipment alone can't produce what you flew.
Good Job!! Makes for a really good day,

Thanks! I do recall lowering the elevator gain on the vbar when I set it back up. It would porpoise during fast flight. Something tells me it was also screwing with the rest of the flight.

Going back out today to get my CF Logo back into the air. Have not had it up sence before IRCHA
