a flybar heli will stop in its tracks and hover when you stop giving forward input .does this new 70-s do that?
The 70s and Esky 150x has a mode for both and can switch between. A flybar heli flies like a heli with 6G, and the mode you describe where 'it continues' is 3 axis Gyro. This mode is deliberately like this, as it allows for more intricate flying, aerobatics, and is generally more relevant in CP helicopters.

so it has switchable modes ? 3 axis and 6 axis? do you have a esky?

No, I don't personally but I have followed the forums and threads about the heli.
On the 150X there is a mode and rate button to change modes.

-Actually, these days, this is a common misconception. A heli with a 45 degree flybar (or offset head) will behave like a coax heli; it will stop and hover when the cyclic is released. However, a heli with a 90 degree flybar will not self level, and takes a good deal of practice to learn how to hover, let alone fly a heli with a 90 degree flybar (like the heli in my avatar pic)...

Thanks Elan, you are right. Not many 90 degree flybar helis left around now though, flybarless has killed them all. The Esky can function as a 45 and 90 degree flybar helicopter with it's mode switch. The Esky has a programmable CC3D.
No, I don't work for them.

so this or esky150x? does the esky with cc3d have any advantage over this one?

The Blade is probably exactly the same heli with a different canopy.
The benefit of the Esky is that it probably is between 1/3 to 1/2 cheaper.
Up to you.

I was going to pick up a 70s, but I can't get over the fact that I can't use
my regular Spektrum TX to fly it.

Although, something like this would be primarily for friends and observers,
so maybe it's a good thing that I'm not handing over my expensive TX.

Or I could just hand them a V911 (I think I have 6 or 7).

Get a Devo 10, deviate it, install a module, and then you can fly the Esky, DSMX, DSM2, futaba, frsky, flysky, and 30 other protocols.

It would be nice to have a "fly anything" TX.

There are a few models I have that would otherwise need a total conversion if I wanted to
get them flying again since I can't find the TX's.

-Yup, fbl has put a hurting on flybar helis but there's a lot of us around still flying them. I learned to fly on Esky helis.They made it affordable enough for me to get into heli flying. I learned to fly on them in this order: LamaV2, CP2, KingV2, and Belt CP :-)
