Just wondering the benifits of converting the SSZ-4 to SSZ-5 by replacing the pitch and mixing arms and Stabiliser rod without replacing the blade grips and spindle. I am also planning on using the SDX dampers. I assume the attachment pads for the pitch arms would be the same distance appart regardless of grip type?

Is this possible and would the handling be noticeably different?

Hi Paul,

Using the SSZ-5 mixing arm should give you a little more resolution which is helpful for a tighter setup for hover. Not so much for aero's. Changing the pitch arm will give greater delta offset for better cyclic stability. The SSZ-4 head already has the ability to set some delta offset.

Personally I don't think you will see significant change in flying from switching over to SSZ-V parts. Most of the change will be seen in the hover setup. This all really depends on what you want to get out of your setup. What you intend to use it for.

I used my D3 V1 with SSZ-4 head for F3C before I switched over to my Eagle EP's and it flew really well.

Thanks Bugcatcher

I have just bought a Freya Evolution OPII which comes with the SSZ-IV head. It will be used for sport flying as I wanted a good flybared helicopter. I am putting a 12t clutch and 95t main gear in for 7.9 ratio. The clutch and main gear it comes with are the same as my D3v2 so will be kept as spares.

I enjoy flybared helicopters and their natural feel. I have gone almost entirely back to glow and believe FBL and electric are overrated.
