I have a freya 90 what response would I get if I removed the flybar weigths. Faster cyclic rates? or slower?

Less weight = less inertia = faster cyclic

Also the farther out the weight the more dampening effect it has so if you have weights but move them inward that will increase the response.

Flybar weights are kinda fun to play with. Start with them all the way out towards the paddle, fly, and move them in until you get the heli to respond exactly how you like. Be careful that you move them in equal amounts!

No. Moving them in towards the head = faster; out towards the paddles slows things down.

Yes. REMOVING them will make your helicopter more responsive. Your overall flip and roll rate will not change. For a faster flip/roll rate you need to increase headspeed, use larger paddles, increase swashplate movement.

This may be trivial to some, but check the weight of your weights. I had a small vibration on my Trex 450 that I just could not chase down. While rebalancing everything I decided to weigh them. One of them was heavier, not by much though. I had a couple sets so I found a matching pair and put them, vibration gone.

I have never used flybar weights. I like to fly "balls to the wall" all the time How fun is flying if you know whats going on the whole time. Live life on the edge. Remove them!! hehe

What is a safe distance in, to move the FB weights, once you are really comfortable at full out?

1"
2"

Try halfway, then when you are comfortable with that, all the way in.

I have a set of weights on my trex600n/super stubbs and a set on my Raptor60/super stubbs and I started out with them on the ends and after I got used to them there, I moved them in to the middle of the fly bar, It got twitchy fast! I have been able to adjust the trex to the center, flies great. On the Raptor60, I still have them in the middle of the Fly Bar, and it will be a while before I'm ready to center them, but it feels real good on the trex to have them all the way in. doesn't make it quicker to respond, but it makes it more lively when it does.

if I was going to remove the weights, I would fly them all the way to the center before I remove them completely, if the paddles are light enough, it could really give you a surprise...
