My guess is they will, but delayed a month or two after Tarot.

Really sucks about the 3GYS. I don't know what ALZRC are doing. They just don't seem to be keeping up in that area.

I had a D201HB on the tail of my 250 for a while. It was much better than the Align DS420.

Same here. I really like the quality of their products in general..

PP,

How can you say that immense product knowledge is needed when you haven't tried it yourself - it really isn't. If people read these threads they will see that the units work very well but are succeptible to vibes and static. They are however very easy to set-up and fly very very with a few minor tweaks. A lot of the issue sthat people are having are due to set-up problems with their helis - not their FBL unit.

Please stop sending out all of the negativity - if you don't want to try one fine, but please stop the negative comments based upon hearsay rather than real experience.

Cheers,
Mike.

I agree with Mike.
And finless-bob has retired from helicopters/build videos, so don't expect anything from him.


PitchP, just try it! Close eyes, pinch nose and just dive in and see what happens. you have spare kits enough for many rebuilds.

Yep I still need to fix up my truck, once I get my truck all fixed I'll start building some FBL helis.

But I tell you what, the boys in thailand just can't get enough of this zyx, they fly their helis with furious 3D and doing dare devil manouvers.

zyx@best10 (5 min 37 sec)

Anyone have any ideas ??? Thanks.
You should probably disconnect all servos now or you'll destroy them.

The blinking red lights mean an error occurred during initialization and you need to restart the gyro.

This can occur even when just a single servo has died. In fact, I wouldn't be too surprised if all four servos have died there and that perhaps nothing is wrong with the Tarot ZYX unit. (speculation)

What happens when you keep all servos unplugged and then try to re-program the unit?

He didn't retire, he just got a new hobby that takes away a lot of his time. He still flies helicopters and is still active on helifreak.

Dang it almost sounds like you're complaining there. How dare you?

+1 that's right he didn't retire, he's just been working a lot, no time for the hobby any more. Tough times going on in the USA atm. Or some where along that line Bob was letting off his steam
