600 mm blades make the heli 'float'. The extra 50mm in blade length does not seem to affect my motor much (Z30).
I'm using 600 mm V Blades, which is terrific.
I'm using TP5000 mAh 6s1p.

The increase in boom length lets you use 620 mm blades too, but to be on the safe side, I don't want to load my motor that much.

true, but you're not doing hard aerobatics so you're not stresing the system. Someone who is beating it much harder would strain the system significantly more on 600mm blades than 515mm or even 550mm.

Did some sports flying (loops, roll, inverted hover, tried a tic toc but it was lousy ), before I converted the heli to AP. No problems at all. Didn't see much bogging in the Z30.
But then again, I'm flying it flybarless. Can't say what's the load like with flybars on.

Listen borneobear,

Do you run your gy401s in avcs or normal mode?
And do you have any drifts or tilting on their own when you fly in wind?

Thanks!

GY401 should always be flown HH (AVCS).
I don't have any pitching issues when going FFF. If you do, make sure your CG is right.

By the way, I've reverted to the plastic tail case:

The CNC unit makes an already heavy tail even heavier!

That's interesting.

I actually have batteries in front, that covers for the CG. But I make my own 8S packs, so I can place the cells whereveer I want.

I actually meant just during hovers, for example, when you have a wind with my flybar I always get some slight tilt, I wonder if the heli is rock solid while gyro stabilized or it simply tilts less.

eerr..... I don't know aerton. IMHO a hovering heli with 100 moving parts, 300 mph blade tips, will surely move when hit by wind.
A flybarless heli stabalized by 2 gyros act the same as a heli with flybars, IMHO.

Ok, I got it.

I kind of thought with gyros it will be more stable

stability can possibly be increased, but not so much in hover. Instead it's more of a dynamic stability where the heli flies more accurately during maneuvers. Combined with a flybarless head which can allow for more efficiency, the culmination is a pretty fun effect.
