Hello guys,

i got a Fury extreme (stock) and a friend of mine has an ORIGINAL X-cell SE 99 and we were wondering if we could use the following SE parts on my Extreme:

- SE tail slider on the Extreme tail box
- SE metal (black) blade grips on the extreme head
- SE metal (gold) bell mixers on the extreme grips

anything else on the SE that could improve the Extreme if installed on it ?

thanks for your help.

The main rotor and the tail rotor are interchangable.

The only thing really different from the SE's (stacked frames models) and the Fury's are the main mechanics. I have put the SE Main rotor on my fury and flew it and it was fine. I just put the tail on which has the metal tail grips and gearbox on it as well. I just haven't flown that tail yet, but I can tell you it is straitfoward to put on.

Just don't use the SE bell mixers on plastic grips, MA makes another set for the plastic grips.

Hey dude, thanks for the reply.

what i was wondering is if i take just the blade grips off the SE will they fit my existing Fury's head (dont want to change the entire head)? im not sure cause the Fury spindle is slightly different.. ?

same for the tail, will the tail slider work on the Extreme WITHOUT changing gear boxes ?

and most important, what will i benefit from using these parts on my Extreme, and has anyone actually tried those ?

thanks.

the se grips will fit on the extreme head. i believe you will need a different heade axle, the se axle is a bit longer. the only problem with running the se metal grips, is that you will wear out the thrust bearing quickly in 3-d flight. been there done that, went back to plastic grips with 5 mil bolts. the mixers will work, they came with the kit from the factory, i took them off when i went back to the plastic grips , put the newer grey ones they have out. if you are using a metal gear box the slider will fit either one, i have used both in the past, i perfer the exteme one, it allow more travel and is easier and cheaper to repair. it is also lighter in weight. it works great. hope this helps,

So basically you would recommend not using any of the SE parts on the Extreme, if i understand right ?

Optimized
The Extreme was pretty much optimized for 3D with the parts selected because they work well in that application. While the SE parts will fit and work, you probably would do just as good or better using the stock parts. As mentioned, the metal SE grips might make the system a little crisper, but the bearings do not wear as well as in the plastic grips. I use the metal grips on my FAI models but plastic grips on my sport models just for that reason.

Hey Gordie,

what is your opinion about the tail slider ?

Pitch Slider
I like the newer slider off the Tempest FAI. It's lighter and very accurate.

i like it too, but unfortunately it is not an option at this stage.
how about the stock extreme Vs. the SE one ?
thanks!

The stock Extreme has a single pivot point where wear can occur over time but which can also be eliminated VERY quickly and easily (and dirt cheaply). The SE slider basically has no wear points, but I'm not sure it's worth the added complexity and weight vs the Extreme's set up. Honestly, the Extreme's t/r control system is bombproof. Run it stock until you care to get the Tempest slider that Gordie mentioned.

I was shocked about the metal grips wearing out the thrust bearings. I talked to MA about using the SE head on the Fury expert specifically for 3D and they never told me that. MA uses the same metal grips on the Tempest 3D. Does that make the Extreme a better 3D machine than the tempest at a fraction of the cost?
