Hi everyone! I keep breaking my boom supports. I have them located on the landing gear base and my engine is maybe a little rich but not too bad in the vibration department. As a whole the heli flys well but everytime I do a front flip, Snap the plastic breaks. Am I doing something wrong? is there a better way to secure the boom supports? Any help would be appreciated.-Jay

I have the EX version D3.
For each EX upgrade part, there is a seperate instruction sheet.
For my boom supports, it shows to mount the supports to the fuel tank supports.

If you look at the stock boom support location, there is one hole above that.
Bolt it through there, and use a Nyloc nut to secure it.'
I also drilled my rod end and fuel tank support to M4, and used an M4 bolt through it.

Hope this makes sense

For the love of the hobby

I have a Freya EVO, and also use the upper mount. The boom supports didn't even break in the tail plant I did a few weeks ago
