Ultra Micro Heli Control Unlike
Anything You've Experienced Before
Ultra micro helicopters give us the freedom to experience the thrill of RC flight almost anywhere. Still, there are some limitations. Often its a bit too breezy to fly outside and maintain control. Or, if you want to fly inside, maybe the controls are too touchy to fly any place smaller than a gymnasium.
The amazing AS3X™ Flybarless System changes all that by giving ultra micro helis an unbelievable sense of neutral stability and positive control that makes them feel like much largfer, finely-tuned helicopters in flight. Its nothing short of the most exciting advance in ultra micro helicopter technology since 2.4GHz control.
When a mechanical flybar is used to stabilize a rotor head, stability and agility become a tradeoff. Adjust the flybar for more stability and and a heli may be easier to hover, but it wont have the crisp control authority you might want for really aggressive aerobatics. Make the same heli more agile and youll have more control authority, but find yourself working a lot harder in hover.
The AS3X Flybarless System frees a helicopter from the limitations of the flybar by replacing it with a sophisticated 3-axis digital MEMS sensor and exclusive flight control software developed by Horizon Hobby. This makes it possible to dramatically expand agility and neutral stability without sacrificing either. Instead, a helicopter is programmed with exactly the amount of stability and agility it needs for precise control in all phases of flight. Plus, eliminating the weight and complexity of a mechanical flybar allows a helicopter to achieve lighter disc loading and higher head speeds, which also improve performance.
The sense of complete control that the AS3X Flybarless System gives a pilot is really something you have to feel to believe. You'll immediately notice how much easier it is to hold a desired flight attitude without making constant corrections. Add a little wind or turbulence and that ability becomes even more profound.
Perhaps best of all is how natural the AS3X Flybarless System feels. That's because it isn't designed to interfere with your control. It only enhances it by working to keep the helicopter precisely in the attitude you command. If anything, it will only encourage you to fly more and with more confidence.
