Default HC-3SX in which heli

OK, so all my helis are fly barred. I have 2 TT50 pieces, 1 TT90SE, 1 450 Trex.
The TT50's are nice pieces, but old V1 stuff, so not worth much money. I may start with the 3sx in these and if I wad (when) them up no big deal. They are cheap to fix too.
Questions:
1) Does the 3sx include a gov function?
2) Am I pissing in the wind using a 3sx on a fly bar machine?
3) If so, which FBL head is cheap?

Thanks
Wags

BTW, I have a JR9303 and am no 3d guy, but these are good pieces to learn with HAHA

Questions:

2) Am I pissing in the wind using a 3sx on a fly bar machine? Expensive piece of hardware not to use to its fullest extent
3) If so, which FBL head is cheap? RJX, cost effective and well designed.

Thanks

Roger, thanks.
I will look at the RJX head.
I figured the HC with a flybarred HC was a waste. This is probably the right route to go as I have a ton of spares too.
Does the Skookum have a built in gov? Or I need an external gov no matter what?
Thanks

I do not believe so..but I could be mistaken...But they are more sensitive to vibration..

Here is a HC3-SX in a 800 class bird..

Yes it does since v3 firmware and it works quite well, I have it on TR700N. Got about 25 flights in since I built it back in April and still got too much vibrations for the SK720 self-level to work. Flies very well, but no SL. The excess vibration is on engine frequency, so still trying to find a solution, but will probably move SK720 to an electric heli and switch to MB + CP2 combo on TR700N.

So, I gather IF I want self level I NEED the HC 3SX because the Skookum is to sensitive to vib.
The HK has a gov. (I tried downloading the manual from HC site, but keep getting an error).
IF I don't want the SL then I can get much cheaper FBL units?
Thanks

if self leveling, stabilization or "bail out" function is not needed you can look @ BeastX FBL..best bang for the buck IMHO

OK, I think I've decieded. Just to make sure.
The HC 3SX DOES have a gov?
I toss my 401 gyro, and the 3sx does gyro, fbl, gov, and receiver? Spektrum compatable?
Thanks

The hc3-sx does not have a governor. It can be used with a flybar or a flybarless setup. It has several different types of bailout functions including self leveling with pitch. Meaning it will level itself and then climb whether inverted or rightside up. It rolls to the closest level position then adds appriate pitch Neg. or Pos. If your unfamiliar with the attitude inverted leave the bailout switch on and use elevator or aileron to roll it right side up, and then turn it off. While the bailout is on using the elevator or aileron the rest of the stabilization is still active. I have not tried it on nitro but I was told by the dealer that it works with nitros just as well as electrics not near as sensitive as the skookum. Esprit models has been very helpful on setup. You can use either sbus, spectrum sats, or a receiver. If your looking for a unit that has self-level it is a great choice, but if you don't need it there are alot of other options cheaper. There is a website called ************** that did a review on the hc3-extreme(same as hc3-sx but no self-level) that was very useful for setting up.
