Hey guys I have been doing alot of reading on here and it seems that there is alot of problems with the CS Have any of you guys had these problems in regards to the crown gear etc ,I guess my issue is that I am deciding on a new 90 and before I spend the money on either the CS r Fury extreme I am just trying to get all the input and info that I can because that are not pilots that fly either here only raptors , which I had a rappy 90 but wanted something a little better quailty. I know I have put alot of posts on this subject latley but just want to make sure that I make the right decision on a purchase of this magnitude. I want the heli for 3d flight and I had read some posts about some vigors self destructing over a flybar issue? Seems a little scary! Is this problem been fixed in the kits or am I going to have to do any aftermarket fixs on a $900 kit. And is it that hard to get a good cyclic response out of a vigor ?

James,

I know you have been keen about the Vigor CS but I also see you may have doubts about it. Any of the current 90 size helis will fly just about the same so just remember it is all set up and pilot.
If it were me I would go with the product I can easily get parts for.

There are no more problems with the CS than there are with any other current machine on the market.

The crown gears will strip easily if you haven't meshed the bevel and the crown well. It takes me AGES to do this and I hate having to take the boom off for this reason.
I've only stripped the gear a couple of times in over 500 flights and I can't remember how that happened. I've since put that support that Scott Gray sells on to see if that helps.
I would hardly say this is a major problem.

The only real upgrades I think the Vigor needs to fly AWESOMELY with a 90 is the 8:1 gear ratio, the extended pitch arms, and the metal tail pitch lever. A lot say that the shortened center hub is a definate requirement. It's not. It sure is great to have, but I've only just put it on and really haven't noticed much of a change in general 3D. I would be quite happy with the standard center block again.

I've flown a lot of helicopters now, lately mainly Tempest's and Sylphides and such and if I had to pick only one helicopter, it would ALWAYS be the CS. I can't tell you how happy I am with it.

Who makes the extended pitch arms? How do I know if I have them? I bought a used CS thats why I ask. I just bought the bevel gear support from rotarsoft.com. Once I install it I'll let everyone know what I think about it.

It's a standard JR upgrade part. You can tell if you have them by looking at the pitch arms and seeing if there are two position holes to mount the balls or one. If there's two, you have the upgrades, if one, it's the stock one.

Thanks guys I have been debating this for a while, what all do I need for the 8.1 ratio. I will be running a os cspec P. Do the extened arms come with the kit or do I need to buy them seperate? I was just concerend about this large of an investment I have been flying rappy 90's and they are pretty inexpensive to fix and I just wanted to be sure about the heli I purchase. Again thanks alot guys!!

Mill the motor mount 1.5 mm. Also have to make the slots longer in the side frames.

The part number is JRP960178B, I remember that part number off the top of my head from when I had to buy them a year ago. Too bad I didn't see this thread ealier, I gave away two sets of these for free to a friend since I didn't need them anymore. You can buy it from Rick's or Heliproz. Here is a link to order some http://www.ronlund.com/Merchant2/me...Code=JRP960178B

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

You don't need to file the frame anywhere to do the 8.0 to 1 conversion. The holes are already oval enough to slide them over to fit perfect. Just try to install the motor mount, motor, bearing blocks and starter shaft. You will see you don't have to file anything down for it to fit. The only thing you will need to do is loosen and slide part A and B of the bearing block apart as far as it can go before you install it.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
