Hey Guys,

Picked up my Hyperformance Hyperdrive from Fast-Lad Performance last night and just fitted it this morning!!

WOW!!..... What an Awesome piece of kit!!

It has taken me about 10 mins to install the hyperdrive.

Nice simple installation of the drive ends onto the front transmission shaft and also the rear input shaft for the tail gearbox.

Bearing guides are much...much better!!! silky smooth and glue in place with meadium CA with no drama or hassle!!

whole drive slid in place,....took about 10 mins....job done!!!

Brilliant!!

Did anyone else see that at the 3DM when Matt Botos carried his N9 out to the flight line, whilst the head of the machine was being held, his tail rotor was spinning freely in the wind.

I guess this is possible with the new Hyper Drive system having 2 one ways attached to the shaft, so does this mean that a Synergy employee was using Hyperformance parts or that Synergy have a similar product in the pipe line?

Take a look at the Botos video during IRCHA. Right near the end you can see the tail still spinning while he stops the head. Interesting.

I am curious about how the male torque tube ends are attached to the torque tube shaft itself. They appear to be simply pressed in? If so, i would worry about that as a possible weak point.

They are both a press fit as well as bonded in place. They will not come out. I was shown one they tried to twist the ends out of and the tube was in two pieces, and the ends were just fine, they didn’t budge a bit. I believe I was told they got 540 degree turn from the tube before it snapped.
It is a very great design. As well as easy to install and replace a toque tube when the inevitable happens. The replacement tubes come with the ends on them as well as the bearing so all one must do is to put the tube in the boom and that it. No messing with ends or gluing on the bearing holders or anything. It is just a remove and replace task, as simple as that.

Gentlemen me and the guys at Hyperformancerc talked in DEPTH about all of their products this weekend at IRCHA, (one million percent good people by the way) and the tube actually exploded and the ends never did twist out. The ends are set in about 2 inches deep and are pressed and glued in. I seriously doubt they are comming loose. These guys KNOW their stuff. I picked up every upgrade they make for my Synergy and guys the stuff is amazing! The new Hyperhub Extreme is just sick! Its lighter and the machine work is like art. Same goes for the hypergrips and the hyperlevers. Simply fantastic quality. There is little more to say, but this stuff is certainly beyond what I consider industry standard. If you have not already, get you some! You will NOT be disapointed!

You asked for it, but I added a little more! When my Hyperdrive gets here I will shoot some pics of it as well. It wouldn't fit in my luggage DANG IT!

No problem man, I love my camera! And I love the parts. Seemed likely a good combination!

i find your post very odd.

now the hyperformance parts are very very nice these guys got it right on with these. i will have all of them when i get another synergy.

but what i find odd is you always put down the synergy to me which i know for a fact and a couple of buddies of mine which i also know you told them the same thing, because we sold our vibes or selling ours for synergy's

if the synergy was no good why would you bother with putting these on.... its just a odd choice for someone who doesnt even like the synergy.

Got both (Synergy & Vibe) like both. How well each of them fly's is down to me and tune and set up so I guess neither of them is optimum, but i'm happy.

Having said this I fitted the hyper hub at the build stage to avoid any POSSIBLE hassle with dialing, the mast collar because I dont like the original arrangment (personal taste) and the hyper dampers (hell why not)

All of the hyper parts are top drawer and if I trash the back end I will get a hyper drive without hesitation, BUT can somebody please tell me what difference I would find in the flying performance by fitting the levers? as they look to change nothing except possibly remove a very small amount of play in the control system?

What I said specificly InkSpot was I hate to work on the machine. To me I don't care for the design. But its one redeaming factor is the way it flys. If I hated it completely I would sell it. I still own it, and IMPO these parts eliminate a LOT of the stuff I do not like about the machine. There are things I don't care for about the Vibe as well. And thank god I as an American am allowed to have an oppionion about things I ACTUALLY own. And with that in mind I also have the right to point out excellence in craftsmanship. So no conspiracy here!

thats why i found it odd, at least your getting excited about it again which is nice ,cause its a awesome heli in my opion. i for one hated the vibe but thats just me, the build is longer and being it doesnt hold up very well without all of those secrets you have that should be in the manual. but the hyperhub and hyperdrive only make it a little bit easier to build if you build the synergy right from the beginning all is good with it. i built mine at ircha last year never had one problem with it and the guy who bought it from me is still flying it issue free. he was at ircha this year with it and i got to fly it. still all good to go.

Here are some shots of the HyperDrive. This thing is sweet.

rsalazar,

I will get PICS of my Synergy with the goodies on it when I get them on. I have to do a few other things to my Synergy to get it the way I want it, but when all of that is done I will indeed shoot a few shots of it.
