Anyone using the Align 700 flybar on the Aurora?
Any issues with it being 570mm vs 555mm?

Stick with the Arora flybar if you can. The material that the Aurora flybar is made of is extremely hard to break so it will eliminate the possiblilty your flybar breaking in flight.

The longer the flybar the quicker the response. You can play with flybar length along with paddles to change the feel of the head.

There are no technical concerns with the Align flybar (or any other manufacturers' for that matter). If it comes down to using a different flybar to get back into the air, absolutely use it. The Miniature flybars are 8-32 thread, but every other one is 4 mm thread.

There really isn't any such thing as "extremely hard to break" wire. Any non-hardened stock is not going to break, it will bend, which doesn't help any. A flybar that is either bent or broken is still no good.

The Aurora flybar is EXTREMELY hard to bend.
maybe thats what Mike should have said.

Some world class pilots are using the Aurora flybars on other machines as others bend or flex in flight.

I have personally seen other manufacturer flybars break in flight due to just wear and tear and this is the reason why Augusto chose the material that the Aurora flybar is made from and also one of the reasons why some manufacturers chose to go to a 5mm flybar.

I'm not really looking to get into a debate about who has the better flybar so if you are looking for faster cyclic response, John's suggestions are correct but I would play with different paddles and head settings before changing the flybar. If you are looking for a replacement flybar and cannot get an original Avant one, then by all means experiment with others until you find one that suits your needs.

Worked Fine

Used the Align Flybar for a couple of weeks until I could replace it with a stock Avant flybar. Worked fine, and I really didn't feel much difference in flight.

I just want to add that I'm using the Align flybar on my Advent. It's fine so far but I haven't gotten thousands of flights on it (and probably won't) to see it fail on its own. The only problem I had was getting the flybar to stay "aligned" in such a way that the locknuts would hold it properly. Took a few minutes, but it's doable!

I will fly you forever... till earth do us part
