Has anyone tried the holes in the mixing arms on the blade grips and what about the G Force arms with more holes? I assume moving the ball in mellows out the heli.

I'm currently writing a review about them. I've been using them for some time now and the "linearity" of the pitch travel is quite noticable. I tried them with the stock holes and also on the most "extreme" settings. Its all a tradeoff between stability and agility. By using the most extreme hole the flybar input decreases thus reducing a little stability in a hover (it gets more sensitive to wind when stationary) but the whole heli becomes more agile and crips in 3D maneuvers. I still have to optimize the link length for the latter setup so this is not my final word about them.

However I'm liking what I'm experiencing so far. Not as shocking as the weighted tail rotor but still quite noticable.

I'm just trying to learn how this works. On the stock arms on the head if I move the ball to the center or even the inner hole I assume the heli will become less aggressive and more stable right?

if you're refering to the right part of the mixing arm, yes. WHat you're doing is increasing the flybar ratio which means that the flybar has a bigger effect on the blades. Dont forget that its the flybar that acts as a mechanical gyro to stabilize the head.

The best way to learn this is to read the Aurora programable head instruction manual. If you look closely, the conections are the same as on the vibe 50 (except for the pitch arms... they arn't programable... yet ).

Well, I just tried the middle hole on the mixing arm on that mounts to the blade grip and changed nothing else. That made a huge difference, now its really stable in a hover, I'm not fighting it at all and it still flips and rolls pretty fast but not as fast as before. I like it this way, you guys should give it a try and post back here about what you think. It only takes a second to change it.

Well the bird is stable enough for me as is. I'm going to move the link to the out most hole and see how it goes
