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?
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
MAVS DAD: continued.....throttle hold, satellites...wtf phuck is all this
MAVS DAD: I have a WLToys V911 and these setup videos for the 6 channel "real deal"
helicopters like the TREX's confuse and intimidate the hell out of me!!!
There are just so many settings to worry about ex: pitch curve, throttle
curve, gyros, flybarless system, swash plate, swash mixing etc,etc,etc and
on and on!!! I REALLY want to step up to 6 channel, 3D flight one day and
would love to have an Align TREX 250 but the 6 Channels and the
settings scare the hell out of me! Plus they're expensive as hell.
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)
scaleernie: Very Very good video. I have the 3G system but looks to be same process for
setup. When you are finding the mid-point (50 in - 50 out) on the radio,
are you in Normal mode, Flight(idle-up) mode? which mode? Thanks!
Claire Kulyk: i tried to text you but it failed ,i'll try find out why,thanks
הערוץ של מוטי ברטוב: You can set pitch curve to be all 50% at all 5 points then you can be sure
you are at mid stick no matter what is the stick position. Thats what I
always do when setting up main rotor head.
Erik Diaz: Freddy thank you for the videos ,I have learned a lot from you .when you do
all the programing ,do you put the idle up switch or do you leave it at
normal flight ?
dclogin: Hello Freddie, thanks for your great video. I wonder if I can use endpoints
to level swash when at full collective or not, thanks, Daniele
Ted Legault: does this set up carry over to the 3gx V3.1 update? thanks great videos
Freddy Cordova: you can use sat with reciver ex (ar8000 + sat dsmx) sat with sat ex (sat +
sat both dsmx,dsm2) using 3gx or for a small heli just use one sat with 3gx
all options are trust worthy :)
Freddy Cordova: gyro gain ??? if you watch my gyro setup it should explain my friend :)
stevedev39: Hi,Great video.Just building 550 fbl.Newbie to flybarless so gonna be
watching and using all 4 vids..suddenly it all seems so much easier...Thanks
Claire Kulyk: i have watched all 4 parts plus your 2 gyro vids and i have to say they are
the best for helpful and valuable setup information that no instruction
manual has got.i have just built a trex700E DFC together with dx8 .Please
answer this,with the 3GX ,during the setup of the swash endpoint sequence
the swash responds in the tests easy to see,but after initialization is
complete and the swash jumps up 3x the helis swash doesnt respond with as
much movement as in previous tests in setup mode,is ok??
