So this coming flying season I plan on really have fun with my EVO 50. As of the moment I have had it 3 years now, and it hasn't been wrecked and I push it to the limit. I think I'm wanting it to be a little quicker overall for manoevours, what is the best way to do this? Do dampeners really make that big of a difference for extreme 3d? What kind do you guys recommend? Also is there anything I else I could get to make my baby even more aggressive?

I LOVE MY EVO!!!

get the CX or Infinavation dampers, take the weights out of the
paddles, lower any expo and crank the RPM to 2000.

Then consider moving the arm on the seesaw to the inner position.

Ditto for all of the above. Additional factors:

30% fuel
Hatori SB50 JK or CY MPII pipe
Good blades

Just be sure that if you increase the cyclic rates that you don't bind the swashplate against the main mast. A cyclic ring helps in this regard.

The dampers definately help with moves such as 4 point flips. The heli gets a litle pitchy in FFF with no weights and the inner hole on the seesaw, so I leave the lead weights in. Has anybody tried inner hole on seesaw with lead weights still in (my setup), vs no weights and the outer hole on the seesaw?

I haven't tried the outer seesaw hole (auto-stability setup), but I'm running no weights in the paddles and don't find the heli to be pitchy at all. It was somewhat prone to pitching up when I was running cheap Mavrikk carbon blades. The MAH-600G2 blades helped a lot to eliminate this behavior.

Main blade choice seems to make the biggest difference on cyclic response and collective pump. Rotortech610 blades were the fastest blades i used with Radix 600 blades comming in second. SAB,TG,TT,MAVERICK,were the slowest. MAH and NHP were quick but dont auto very well. The Rotortech 610's were the fastest but were pitchy in foward flight,this was done with no weights in the paddles and infinavation dampeners ,even adding the lightest brass weight slowed down the response quite a bit. The SWM version is a little faster than the HPM version. Radio transmiters are different also,we found the Futaba 9C to be quite a bit slower than all the other transmitters.DOUG

Hey guys thanks for all of the help. From what it sounds like, the dampeners actually help with the accerlation of the heli on its axis, correct me if I am wrong there. I'm using Thunder Tiger blades and I have liked those and will probably keep using them. What dampeners do you prefer, the cx or infinivation?

I LOVE MY EVO!!!

I went with the Infinivation's since from what I read they seemed to be more durable.

The dampeners dont do much for response,i went with the infinivation because they are more durable. I tried CX dampeners first but they didnt last long at all. Depends on how quick you want the cyclic,TT are really slow they tend to be very heavy 150 grams or better which slows response.DOUG

MRX10, if the dampeners do not do much for response, why did you purchase them? I'm just curious and I want a better performing heli. If the dampeners are not worth it, I won't buy them.

Because the stock dampeners dont allow the blade axle to center in the head,it shifts to one side and allows the axle to wobble. After i switched to the CX dampeners i could not tell any difference between the stock and CX as far as response but the CX dampeners wore and became loose. I replaced them with the Infinivation dampeners and they have been in there for almost a year now. The biggest difference in response came with blade changes,i tried about 8 different blades and setteled on the Rotortech and Radix,for my style of flying. I can tell you the TT blades wont be very responsive no matter what else you do,they are just too heavy and have to much drag,although they auto pretty good because of the weight. If you want a big improvement try some Radix blades if you can borrow some,it will be like night and day difference.DOUG

Hmm, I might have to consider that. How much does a set of radix blades usually cost?

I too didn't notice any difference in cyclic resonse with the different dampers. I did notice a much crisper stop during 4 point flips. The tail wouldn't bounce up and down anywhere near as much with the stiffer dampening. They are worth it, but don't expect the heli to fly radically different.

So get the dampeners, but mainly if I want big improvements get lighter blades correct?

Has anyone tried the inner holes on the main blade grips. Just curious as to what its like in flight?
