mike reed: Freddy, your the best on YouTube for Heli Stuff. Please do a instructional
video on the new Ar7000BX and the new DX9. I will give you my Paiste
Cymbals LOL. U R Da Man
1tobicat: Hello Freddy, I have always flown the ar7200bx and know it so well by now
that I hardly need the set up manual anymore. I just bought a used 700 DFC
with a 3gx. I watched some other set up videos and was intimidated by how
complicated the programming seemed. I found your series on the 3gx and with
your help I was able to get set up on the first try. I just wanted to thank
you for a really great and easy to follow instructional. Keep it up!
Doddie Domingo: Hi Freddy, is there a some way you can teach me to setup my trex 600 with
3g align fbl with JR x9303 Tx thx Doddie
fidias t.: can y do a bind video for 3gx and 2 dsmx sats ?
Jim Hanson: i am just getting back into the hobby after a 6 or 7 year break i got a
grate deal off ebay on really nice a trex 450 v2 it came with a futaba t7c
radio and a g4 sim i also picked up a good deal on a used 450 pro dfc i
came with a 3gx flbls and an airotronics dual satellites, i replaced the
satellites with a futaba r6303sb receiver i got it to boot up the servos
move around but that is as far as i got it doesn't seem to respond to the
inputs properly can one of you guys walk me through the proper setup
procedure ? i cant find any videos with a futaba t7c radio thanks
mainlymusicman: so you shouldn't put the servo horns on until your radio is on and at mid
cause in my manual it says to put them on during the build... but then how
do you know if the servo travel is centered?. in other words you could
place the servo horn at 90 by moving the servo gear physically when its on
the servo... this is hard to explain...
Mark Thiem: Freddy, My 3gx keeps falling out of DIR mode. Takes a quick press and it's
back. Any ideas?
Butch Capars: freddy, what if i have the new DX6 which GYRO = gear only can i still use
it instead the aux which is not present to my transmitter...thanks..
mainlymusicman: i guess im dumb i didnt realsize you had to bind to the 3gx, thought it
was just the transmitter and reciever.
erik van havenbergh: Sorry Freddy, could it be that the 3GX is mounted wrong? Isn't it that the
G--< logo needs to point to the front of the heli? Or is this not that
peter pang: Hi Freddy, I have Trex 450 pro/3gx/DX8 tx, I've done all the set ups,
havent tried doing any 3d yet since Im a noob, but the heli can hover
pretty well imo, and it came to the point where I want to do the DIR set up
"again". What are the things needed to do before doing the DIR? Do I need
to re-bind the heli? OR just set the SERVO AND DR/EXPO to zero? Thank you
Adam Dukhie: man i just set up a 3gx with satellite for the first time couldn't figure
out why the tail wasn't working after about 30 mins i remembered this video
..for got to set gyro sw to aux 2 ..so glad you made this vid
MrAm1400: First when it comes to you a person feels intimidated your knowledge is out
of this world. My question for you is this. I have the Futaba T8FG - Super,
I am using it for a Trex 550e with the Align 3GX. And the Talon 90.
Following things on you-tube i think i did something wrong. I see on line
that in order to let the Talon 90 know there your Throttle setting is you
at first have to go to the radio and get to the End Point and scroll down
to the Throttle setting (3). Now i have on one side 135 - 100 (on Left) and
135 - 100 On right. The 100 i set to the lowest value that was 30, then did
the same on the right. I put the stick on the TX to the high position, plug
in the Talon and begin to scroll up in value until i hear a beep (@) that
point just go up two more settings then, put the Stick on the TX to the low
position & repeat the above. here is my problem, when i hit the throttle
hold and plug in the batt, things look OK. Now i come out of throttle hold
and spool up (blades off) everything is fine. When i begin the spool down,
it slows and when i get to the bottom of travel it does not stop. just
keeps going slow. The only way i can get it to stop is flip the throttle
hold. What is going on. Hope someone can give a little incite.
William Bynum: Hey Freddy, quick question.
I have a 600e trex. It's set up but when I hover it, it has involuntary
little pitch pumps. Not sure what it is. Can you or anyone help?
MrAm1400: Hi, I thanks to you put my 550e together. My question for you is, can you
tell me in your opinion what size battery i should use. I am just doing
pattern flying right now none (yet) of the 3D. Thanks
Freddy Cordova: oh yes this is normal, in dir mode when ur setting up ur endpoints and
corection direction it is showing swash movement with full movement, once u
exit into the main startup menu (three jumps on swash) you are now seeing
what may seem to be little movement for both ail and elev because ur
picking up the gain values from the 3gx. if u need further help or
explanation of this feel free to call or tex me at 801-654-2803 thanks buddy
Freddy Cordova: been using deans for years lol no probs here , but its all personal
Freddy Cordova: ummmm....i dont actually think the dx6i has that feature ? ill have to
check into it but i dont think it does.
Peter Russell: First, thanks for the great videos. I'm trying to set up a Trex550E with
the 3GX & would be completely lost without your series of video guides. As
it is, I can't get the correct operation of the pitch servo in cyclic
unless I connect it to the throttle connection on the 3GX. This obviously
can't be right, but I've checked & tried everything else. The set up is a
Futaba T8FG Tx with a Futaba R617FS Rx.. Any ideas Freddie? Many thanks
Rasmus Funck: Thanks for this video and all of them!
Rotorwatcher: Hi. Any advice on powering the 3GX with a seperate RX battery?
Don Yoshiikawa: Excellent set of videos. One question is on the 3GX manual it says near the
beginning to turn off the Swash mix Function. I don't understand why you
would do this and you didn't on your video.
grongrod: Very clear series...unlike some others. Validated my setup with this post.
Keep up the good work!
hillbillypetej: Hi lot people saying to me don't use deens conecters but seeing u r have
you had any probs great videos big thank you for yr help. Me helicopter all
sorted thanks to you.
Freddy Cordova: feel free to call me at 801-654-2803 and well c if we can get u flyin buddy
gtr3499: Nice tutorials freddy, i just bought the 500efl kit your videos will help
when i get to the 3gx
GLENN WALLACH: Freddy, Great job on the videos. I just got back into RC after tryin to fly
planes when i was 13 w an open gimbled MRC radio (doubt you've even heard
of it) But at 50+ I never would have figured out how to get my first 6
channel Heli setup..... let alone do the 3gx, if it wasn't for your
help...... So thanks
Brian Dizon: So if i change my receiver to just a Spektrum spm9645 satellite and use my
3gx as a receiver. Do you think that this will work on a Dx6i? thanks for
tag gamboa: i'm using just a satelite on my 3gx and DX6i. i can't find the SW SELECT to
put my gyro to aux 2?
Manuel Salinas: Incredibly helpful!! I ordered an align 3gx earlier today for a mini Titan
e325. I was a little worried that the 3gx would not be as easy to setup as
my beastx. Your videos make it look simple!! Thank you
hook2233: Freddy, First thanks for taking the time to help our fellow heli people.
Completed my 550e dfc heli. Set up 3gx as per your videos. (3gx 2.1)
Throttle/pitch are linear - mean vibration when getting to mid throttle -
shakes down to skids - bounces around on ground--any ideas? Thanks
nisha: Freddy can you tell me how to wire the 3GX, AR8000 receiver and the BEC? I
watched your setting up throttle and pitch curves videos. i have a DX7S,
according to your video I should make the Normal mode throttle curve as in
your video right? throttle menu has N,I,H. What is the 3D mode? is it I or
H? for 3D mode I should change my curves look like your drawings right? I
couldn't find a video of showing the setting up a radio. Thank you
tomatwalden: Thanks for doing this set of videos. I've been struggling to understand how
to setup a Trex 500 with a 3GX and nothing I've found elsewhere has come as
close as your vids to explaining clearly the steps required.
MrAm1400: Ya know when it comes to reading and doing it, it's like Chinese to me.
(Talking about Multi tasking.) Every where i look on the web i see Spectrum
& that. I know some of you guys must have the 8FG Super & feel left out
like i do. I need a Align 3gx full setup. Talk about a happy Man. Thanks
for the 3Gx all I've seen is Micro Beast X
Richard Boos: Hi Freddy ! Just wondering if you heard of anyone having issues going with
2 satellites straight out of 3GX or should i use RX with one satellite
coming out of the that ex: AR8000 w/sat . I understand you can't mix
satelites dsm2 & dsmx. Thanks for your help with the videos !!
nitrokyosho: very nice video freddy ,keep up the great job
Erik van den Berg: Hi, I'm building a 250 dfc and its finished now but i can't get the end
point's right in the dir mode When i'm in the dir mode the 3gx should
program the end point's but the elevator end point is way to far out when
i'm leaving the dir mode... When in the dir mode the end point's are oke
but when i'm leaving the aileron is oke and the elevator is pushing so far
that the main shaft is moving. I own a DX7s and reversed one servo the
aileron and in the swashplate menu all 3 on -60 H.E.L.P
Freddy Cordova: for more help please call or tex me at 801-654-2803 thanks freddy
Brian Dizon: i binded my receiver and its fully working. Its just the 3gx that wont lit
up at all no sounds and crap like that. what you said, does that mean that
i have to bind my 3gx to my tx as well? i thought thats only for
Mark Abercrombie: Your videos are awesome, which do you think is better for a first time
build (T-Rex 250 DFC), the Beasts microbeast or the Align 3gx?
Russell Silverstein: Thank you for the great videos. I'm building the 450 pro v2 3gx and have
been using your videos as a guide. I got to the 3gx radio setup and was
lost. I did a quick video search and was happy to see a series by you. As
usual.great information. Thanks for helping out those of us just getting
started with building!
Mark Abercrombie: Sweet, I figured, but thought I would ask the expert, thanks again!!
chertzyb: I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS GYRO! Spent days setting up and reviewing with the
store. First flight, blades dig in, landing gear cracked, go back to the
store for more advice and parts. Next flight, new blades dig in, rudder
server shot. Now $150+ in damage and about 5 seconds flight time. This is
bullcrap. This is a way advanced gyro only for serious experts. I can fly a
450 inverted with a flybar but can't even my new 500 get off the ground
with the 3gx. BEWARE IF YOU ARE NOT AN EXPERT FLYER!!
erockula: how long did it take you to get to that level of 3d flight
VT ViewfromtheTurret: Nice job! Finally someone starting from the beginning..
briansmobile1: Where's the best place to buy a DX8?
Peter Russell: Hi Freddie, To save you time, ignore my previous question regarding the
Pitch servo cyclic response. I've just been told that the Trex550E-3GX
manual 3GX wiring instructions are wrong, at least for Futaba Rxs! (see
page 17 The yellow & purple wires need to be swapped.) Maybe I should have
looked at your 550E build videos, but I bought the heli already assembled.
Brian Dizon: fred my 3gx wont power up i attached all the wires into the 3gx correctly
from the receiver and when i turn my heli on only the receiver that shows
life but 3gx doesnt make a sound nor light. im using dx6i and ar6115e on
trex 250. help.
Freddy Cordova: you want to be in normal mode with a linear pitch curve (0,25,50,75,100)
