Thumbs down 3gx problems

I have a 3gx on my 450 dfc , and it does full front flips on lift off into the ground, I spun the bird up with the head off and it has vibes, and the swash will drop a lot in the front, that was with the tail blades on and the main head off.

im just unshure on what to do, maybe try to balance this thing somehow

just looking for some tips

thanks Brandon

Sounds like the elevator compensation is backwards. When you tip the helli the swash should try to stay level when being tipped and then it will return to level. Not seen as easy out of setup as in setup.
If you flipped it don't reuse any shafts or bearings. FBL isn't FB that doesn't care about vibes unless there bad enought to cause tail wag.

I wouldn't call it a 3GX problem. Major vibration on the heli and/or improper set up of the heli/3GX...

Default 3gx problems

I had a lot of issues with my FBL setup on the 3gx an Nameci gave me some good points to eliminate the cause of my issue but what it mainly came down to was I did not run the DIR setup right and my Heli's swash was over compensating due to a drift, if I hadn't had it on a training gear it would have flipped also.

Best advice I got was make sure the tail servo is mounted correctly and run the DIR and rudder setup again, oh and upgrade to v3.0 which has a slightly different setup to the V2.1, so keep thy in mind.
