seems like I read a post to add frame bracing to evo 50 anyone got info on this. got evo today. frame has piece missing/broke of just above land gear on right side.. from what I can see in on-line manual it wont affect anything.. also tail fin has been broken and repaired .. also how much difference will X-cell 3D paddles make. I think I will get stock paddles , since I'm still not skilled enough to do anything fancy enough to spot shorts

You can add a crossmember above the fueltank to keep it in place.

I like putting a crossmember above and below the tank. It ties the boom supports together, and helps keep the back part of the frame from breaking in a crash.

Sorry, I don't have a part number for you, if you do a search, it'll turn up. There isn't anything missing from your kit, there isn't an additional bearing block on top of the counter gear, just the 2 underneath it. You can add one if you want, I did it on my last Evo just because I wanted to waste money, and I wouldn't do it again. It adds nothing in performance, and makes it so you now have to pull off a bearing block to pull the tail boom/belt.

Carbon xtreme makes a carbon base plate for the Evo, I broke a few frames by crashing before putting on the base plate, after installing it, I have crashed a few more times but the frames were spared, I'm sold on them.

What you want are the 2511024 - M3x60mm crossmembers. That part number gets you a pair.

Sold at Rick's for less than $7.00.

I like to slide some large fuel tubing over the center part before installing them. This provides a cushion in the event that your fuel tank hits the cross-member during wild maneuvers.

I don't think the crossmember fits below the back of the tank without hitting the tank. It fits great above and also prevents the tank from possibly sliding out during fast pirouettes. The carbon base plate helps alot to save the frame, through a few crashes, but it is still possible to break the frame with one installed as I found out a couple weeks ago.

Maybe you thought wrong. There's half a centimeter of clearance if you use the right position.

The carbon plate does add strength to the frame, but it also makes engine removal a PITA. Two frame crossmembers do the job nicely and only cost a few dollars.

That's not the hole I was thinking of. I was talking about the holes at the back of the frames where the boom supports could be mounted to down low.

If my memory serves me correct a crossmember can be fitted between the lower tailboombrace holes (below the tank).

2511024 that's the part number I used. I think rick ships pretty fast so I think all the parts I ordered will be here no later than wednesday

The other one goes above the tank using the upper tail brace holes. On my Evo I've got the tail braces on the upper positions. Having one brace above and one below the fuel tank helps ensure that the tank stays in the heli during fast piro-maneuvers.

I'm using a Dean's one-piece whip antenna. I don't have the model# handy, but if you search for Deans on any of the model sites it is easy to find. The only thing I dislike is that the dip-covering isn't fuel proof and tends to develop cracks over time. I usually add a coating of epoxy over the dip-coat to prevent this. I've used these for years and have had very good results with them. The skid-mounting keeps the antenna away from noise-generating stuff and I don't bump into it all the time.

I had the Carbon Extreme full plate under one of my EVO's. Busted that up with the rest of the frame last time I torpedoed it. I ended up saving the front half and reusing it.
