Default Furion 6 ?'s

I'm a little late to the party on the Furion 6 FBL. I do have a few questions.

Does the geometry of the servo's make for a troublesome task when setting up Vbar 5.2 pro?

In your opinion, when parts are out of stock do online shops have them restocked in a timely manner? I ask because, besides my practice blade Mcpx (best SIM ever imo, I rarely use the computer sims anymore) , I can only afford one nice heli but I need parts to be in stock when needed. I know Align has the best availabilty of parts, but I'd like a different heli.

Various on-line shops sell parts like A Main Hobbies in Chico, CA.

But you can always get them directly from Miniauture Aircraft or HeliProz (Same Company) out of Montana.
Their service is top notch!

I love my Furion 6!

I have a mini vbar on mine. I found the geometry perfect!

And parts have never been a problem.

Yeah the tray in the bottom has a big slot so you can get the Esc strapped down. Just do it with the main gear out. Much easier to get your hands in to guide the strap back down.

Only things I did to mine where personal. I put magnetic mounts on the rear. I am running 105mm tails so I don't need to either run 2400 head speed or buy the tail speed up pulley.

Yeah forgot about that. If you are going to run 105mm tails, I recommend the CustomHeliParts.com tail fun. It's longer and gives the blades more ground clearance.

I pulled the trigger and found a BNF Furion 6. Should be here on Friday. I will be running mini vbar 5.2 pro. Jive 80HV, 4035-560 on 10s. Any one else using vbar? What is a good starting point for main rotor and tail gyro gains?

I have the MINI Vbar Blue on 5.2 Pro. I set my gains to Logo 600 on the sliders. I did bring my tail gain down about 10 points after a couple of tweaks. When I get home I can post my vbar file if you want.

This is my current build, I pulled it off the bird just now.

Tail gain is a bit lower than i thought, but is rock solid and tracks VERY well. Keep in mind, I am a big air, FFF, sport flyer. The only 3D I do is tic tocs, and sloppy ones at that

I love speed and big graceful movements and this bird never fails!
