Yes, sure does. That's what I checked before posting.

Thanks for taking the time to do that. I'm interested in geting one of these. I noticed when you were checking cyclic with the circle near the end of the vid that you have a mode 2 TX. As you know cyclic is on the right stick. I fly mode one where elev is on the left stick and aile is on the right stick.

Is there a mode one setting in the programming menu on the Robird setup software ??

Don't worry - your Radio will sort all of that out, it will work fine Mode 1

Bill, it doesn't matter if you are using mode 1 or mode 2. The receiver simply sends aileron and elevator signals to the flybarless unit. It doesn't matter how your radio is programmed.

Thanks, this FBL is all new to me. It will probably be my X-Mas present to myself.

Happy Flying !!!

I really like the hobbyking 335 mm blades. both in fiberglass and carbon. Actual 325mm from bolt hole to tip. Stiff blade,Chord is wider than the 325mm but about same thickness, weight and price. Will never buy anything else for my 450.
Comparing it just gives more pop on collective, loops and continuous flips and rolls are easier as it tends to transition smoother with less collective input through he move, even with relative low headspeed. Nicer sound also.

I can understand why some like to stretch the 450 and run even longer blades.

I have fell in love with the ALZRC FBL blades. They are cross woven strong always perfect balance and the blemished ones can be had for $13

That servo mount is just like the others that break. The best I found is just the standard plastic or if you want metal it will cost you in weight.

I started using genuine Align 325D Pro blades a while ago and love them. At around $15 I think they are not too expensive, and worth the extra cost.

They look like a good cheap option, the reason why I'm changing from the stock ones is that I've heard they blow off the blade grips!
