[QUOTE=stonecutter;22975917]I had found that a medium length flybar worked well for a light version of this heli (no canopy, no skids), so I had reasonable hopes that a full length one might work on a normally weighted heli. I don't know if the video does it justice, but I really llke the response of the full length msr flybar, no pronounced porpoising, good control and maneuverability./QUOTE]

Looks good and great flying! I tried a V911 bar last night, standard but bent to avoid flybar strikes. Didn't improve it at all. I've been coming to the conclusion that the flybar needs more length.

It's really stable hovering, but when turning it just takes off, and can get out of control quite easily after a series of turns. Flybar and links feel fine (nice free movement), and it feels as though the flybar isn't doing enough to stabilise it. Might also try a graphite lube on blades and links....
