Probably? Since that's the flybarless controller then it would make sense that this refers to the on-board sensors. I saw some reference to Align's flybarless controllers called 3G and 3GX here:

Though that's just speculation on my part, really.

Thanks. I understand the 3 axes in 3G, but what are the axes in 6G helicopters?

Where'd you see that?

I've heard of 6 channel helis (typically collective pitch) but I did a quick google search for 6g and it looks more like a marketing name to me. Maybe someone else knows better.

6g is just a walkera gimmick- isnt really 6 gyros, is 3 gyros and 3 accelerometers
walkera justs loves to confuse us

Eh, BnF stands for "Bind 'n Fly" for most of us. This means indeed you get just the helicopter (or plane, or car) with everything needed to operate it, except the transmitter. So all you have to do is bind and you can fly...

...and ARF implies it requires minor assembly to fly such as Quads that come in bigger pieces to fit in a sensible shipping box.

Or ARF (almost ready to fly) can simply means no batteries nor charger included, as well as no tx.

Bind n fly (bnf) is no tx.

It may even imply that some parts need to be installed, like servos, motor etc..

Newbe question


Could someone explain dual rate and exponential to me? What does raising and lowering the numerical values of each one do? I'm flying a Wasp X3v fbl.

I think this video has been going around and might help

Dual Rate & Expo Explained (8 min 12 sec)


If you search for "dual rate and expo explained" on youtube there are other tutorials that might be useful.

I couple I didnt see;

ESD = electrostatic discharge
FBL= flybarless
FB= flybar
CA= coaxial
CP= short for CCPM

And I think FUBAR needs to be updated with the advent of the 3 axis gyro of the same name
