Default MSR - indestructible landing gear and severely reduced tail blowout TBO

This landing gear will survive a 30 foot fall onto grass no problem. Sure it weighs a tiny bit more than stock but my heli has no problems lifting it whatsoever. I hot glued it right to the frame and unless I step on it, this landing gear will not break.

Tail blowout is virtually gone - check out the double rotor blades. I went from (full throttle) quite fast left pirouettes to just a single 1/4 turn. Insanely strong & accurate tail response, no more protruding motor shaft. Check out the flybar paddles ground from .602" to .298" - motors run at noticeably less rpm to maintain hover, huge increase in power. Tried a flybar ground to .250" - no good, wild TBE.

One thing I didn't know about the tail boom - it's supposed to be tilted at the same ten degree angle as the main shaft. Didn't know that.

This heli is so agile, stable, solid, powerful and responsive now I still can't believe it. Two months ago it floated and bobbed all over the place, couldn't maintain a steady heading for the life of it and also had terrible tail twitch. Now it works BETTER than advertised. Steel ball mod = stability.

Sure would appreciate a photo ot two of the flybar mod. I'm having a great deal of difficulty picturing >

"... bore a 13/64" hole through it and take the steel ball from a plastic swashplate and slide it down the shaft so it is centered on the flybar..."


Cheers
