How does length of flybar affect flight stability?


I was thinking about experimenting with different length flybars but how will this effect flight stability? Does longer make it more responsive or easier to fly?

I'd guess that if it's longer it is being subject to more air turbulence so it will have a bigger impact on control adjustments?

How was the stock length it is at now determined to be best and why?

I think the shorter it is, the faster the response. The longer it is, the slower the response. Of course I could be way off....

i made a long flybar for training.. and slowly i'm transitioning to shorter ones.. the longer, the more stable, and slower the response.

because it can zip around like a hummingbird(not the heli ).

hovering is boring...this and like90's make it interesting.
