Default Where is the best BeastX Deal?

What is the best deal I can get on a new MicroBeast BeastX w/USB Plug? I am debating this FBL Gyro vs the 3GX. I found that combo for $206.79 /free shipping from the US.

I have heard 3GX is a contender next to the BeastX but is it really??

I have both, so far from an out of the box perspective, the beastx is ahead...Granted, it is probably not a fair comparison since my 550e V2 with 3GX is using ds610s on the cyclic and a ds620 on the tail vs. the Trex 500 beastx with MKS 9660a on the cyclic and a futaba 9256 on the tail. The 500 is smoother in a hover, and there is 0 twitch in the tail, but the servo quality all around is of a higher grade than the stock align servos which are supplied in the kit with the 550e.

I have both and at this moment in time I would say I prefer the Beastx but it is very close. I can't seem to grasp how exactly to fine tune the 3GX. Whereas on the Beast, I just put it in transmitter mode and go from there. I am planning on really diving into the software for the 3GX to see if I can fine tune the way it flies. All I did was use the pre-existing modes and flew it like that. I never flew the 3G system but most guys are saying the 3GX is a vast improvement over that system.

I still love my Beastx and always will irregardless of whether or not the version 3 comes out
