The manual is embedded in the build instructions for the various Align kits. This appears to come out of the manual. At least its identical to. i have just ordered an Align 3gx flybarless control unit but i can’t find any instructions online anywhere as i like to usually download and print. Align 3Gx flybarless setup problem Electric Heli Talk. Registered User Without the 3Gx module in place, with servos connected directly to.

Mostly for my own memory. I shrunk this info to a Pocket Guide that I will printout or read on my mobile if I have to change the parameters through the 3GX unit out in the field.
I also found this site: This is how to do the setup through the 3GX unit. If you use the software there are text and pop-ups to explain the settings: If ava ilable, ensure the following functions are disabled in the transmitter: The trim must be zero when using 3GX, and should not be adjusted at anytime. If the helicopter hovering tend one side, it means the swashplate doesn’t keep horizontal when setting.
Go to Flybarless System “Direct mode bypassing gyro, for mechanical travel and neutral point setup” to adjust the level of the swashplate and then re-complete the setup. Should there be changes such as 3GX software update, pitch reconfiguration, or subtrim adjustments, the setup process must be repeated for the flybarless system. If incorr ect movements or servo has no movement, please check servo connection to 3GX as well as radio control system.
Trottle Calibration needs to be performed regardless. Se “Trottle Calibration” at the end.

Pay extra attention to these setup steps. Incorrect neutral points will affect flight stability, and even lead to loss of control. Press and hold the SET button while powering up the receiver. REV begin to flash in sequence. Release the button before the flash sequence complete, the DIR green LED will light up indicating the 3GX has been bypassed for mechanical neutral and travel range setup.
Adjust the maximum collective pitch using the transmitter’s swashplate mixing function pitch swash AFR. Should any changes made to the endpoints or subtrims on the transmitter in the future, the 3GX flybarless system initial setup must be performed again. The recommended collective pitch range for various T-Rex helicopters is degress depending on preferenses. Only right aileron and front elevator measurement is needed.
Aileron and elevator rates can be adjusted in 3GX panel or cyclic pitch rate adjustment under flight mode settings. For the rest of the setup: The throttle stick position where main pitch is 0 degree must be maintained. While keeping swashplate level and main pitch at zero degrees, press the SET button to register the neutral point and enter E. With all channels stationary, move the transmitter elevator stick forward, and then back to center position.
This completes the swashplate mixing type recognization process. The control unit will determine the CCPM mixing ratio or traditional mechanical mixing maximum elevator endpoints. Press the SET button to enter E. This setup mode sets the elevator gyro direction. Tilt the helicopter forward and check if swashplate is tilting correctly toward the back. Press the SET button to enter A. With all channels stationary, move the transmitter aileron stick to the right and then back to center position.
This completes the aileron endpoint wlign process. The control unit will determine the maximum aileron endpoints. Tilt the helicopter right as shown in diagramand check if swashplate is tilting correctly toward the left. This completes the flybarless portion of the setup process. Push and hold the SET button for 2 second g3x enter the rudder gyro setup mode while 3GX is turned on.
Subsequent setup mode is entered by a single press of the SET button. There is a direct correlation between servos’ speed to gyro’s performance.
Faster servos are able to execute commands from the gyro at faster alivn higher precision. Due to the high performance gyro sensors used in the 3GX flybarless system, premium high speed digital rudder servos are mandatory for optimal tail performance.
Setup mode will exit if no activity is detected in 10 seconds. Proper frame rate must be selected based on your servo’s specifications.
Push the transmitter rudder stick left or right to select the frame rate. First check how the rudder responds to Tx. If needed, servo reverse is done from the transmitter’s REV reverse function. For tail pitch adjustment, center the rudder servo by either setting the 3GX flybarless to normal rate mode non-heading lockor press and hold the SET button for 2 seconds.
With the rudder servo centered and servo horn at 90 degrees, adjust the linkage length until tail pitch slider is centered on the tail output shaft. Lift up the helicopter by hand, and turn it to the left yaw. Check if the rudder servo is applying correct compensation to the 3x. This completes the rudder endpoint limit adjustment for the left side.
This completes the rudder endpoint limit adjustment for the right side. To achieve consistent gyro gain on left and right, 3GX has built in anti-torque compensation function. User need to confirm if 3GX is mounted right side up or upside down. In addition to transmitter, the 3gz compensation feature can also be set through 3GX interface’s rudder parameter. Confirm the rudder settings by pushing the SET button.
For radio with built in gyro gain settings, gain can be adjusted directly. Actual gain value differs amongst servos and helicopters. The goal is to find the maximum gain without tail hunting. This can only be done through actual flight tests.
Value should be tuned under actual flight conditions by increasing to the maximum gain without tail hunting. Align 3GX version 2. Flybarless portion of the setup If ava ilable, ensure the following functions are disabled in the transmitter: Adjust the servo neutral point and main blade pitch.
With 3GX in operation mode, push rudder to left or right, and press the SET button for about a second. Check that there is no binding throughout the pitch range. The more dampening effect, the smoother helicopter flies, but feels less direct. Setting swashplate acceleration may increase the burst amp draw of servos. Therefore, BEC output capability should be confirmed to handle burst current when setting collective pitch acceleration, otherwise insufficient current supply may result in flight accidents.
Move the elevator stick to adjust collective pitch acceleration rate. Beginners or F3C pilots should minimize cyclic pitch acceleration rate value, or set it to zero.

Reset throttle curve and pitch curve to default Confirm the transmitter is powered up, and throttle stick is at lowest position. Push the throttle stick on transmitter to the maximum top, and in a few moments LED will 33gx off and system power cycles, indicating the completion of setup process. Flight mode settings through 3GX V2 unit. My HK 3GX setup. Hem 3GX v 2. Set the right aileron and front elevator to 8 degrees. LIM setup While keeping swashplate level and main pitch at zero degrees, press the SET button to aligb the neutral point and enter E.
This setup mode sets the elevator gyro direction Tilt the helicopter forward and check if swashplate is tilting aligb toward the back. Tail pitch adjustment First check how the rudder responds to Tx. Anti-torque To achieve consistent gyro gain on left and right, 3GX has built in anti-torque compensation function. Gyro gain For radio with built in gyro gain settings, gain can be adjusted directly.
