Dean, have you found that the first maneuver in the new sequence requires a fair amount of power? We have had rain almost every weekend here so I havent had a.chance to try it. I remember that simular figure last year my 150 powered 3M was marginal.

Hi Shawn,

I have the DA 200 throttle ATV dialed down from 100% to 85%. In the cool weather we've been flying in it's actually been too much power. I'm throttling up through the 135 push and it still accelerates too much on the 45 upline.

The 45 upline doesn't require much power. The 1.5 snap takes some energy and your 150 may not recover as quickly.

The difference with the bearings is that the rudder has a thicker phenolic arm at the top and bottom. The McMaster-Carr part number on the bearing for the thicker phenolic arm is 7817K54. The part number on the bearing for the normal thickness phenolic arm is 7817K53.

Steve "Richo" Richardson recently created this video on installing the Nylon Snap-In Thrust Bearings.
