Where can I buy flybar weight for the T-rex 600? The 600 don't seem to have a flybar weight that is made for it.

I just bought some split ones from the LHS. I think they were a K & S brand or something like that. I'm hoping that they give me a smoother ride for video work - testing planned for this weekend (weather permitting)

Nooobs, those look like plain ol' wheel collars. Available at any hobby store that caters to plankers. 5/32" very close to 4mm to fit the flybar. Not a lot of weight in those those though. Maybe 5 grams?

The K&S flybar weights mentioned earlier (part# KSJ508) are split (no need to remove paddle to install 'em) and they weigh 30grams for the pair. Fit 3mm flybars
You can get them anywhere that stocks K&S, such as http://www.pivotalhobbies.com . You probably will have to call and order them in person as this is not a mainstream item that they have on the website. Pivotal also carries the full line of Align Trex parts

Inertia weigths, complete for one rotor head with screwing.
Man, you get a screwing with these.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Jas, I hope you realized the link Tabb posted is a 4mm flybar weight for a 60-90 machine. The trex 600 uses a 3mm flybar. This is the one you need:

They are great for smoothing out flight

Did some testing with flybar weights on my T-Rex 600 today... was pretty smooth - even with a bit of a breeze blowing...
Would recommend using - particularly for video.
