I have a falcon se that is getting hard to find parts for. when I entered the part # at tower hobbies site for a new flybar it linked to a helimax flybar. I ordered it and it is 2 in longer then the stock century bar. Will this be a problem? How will this effect the flight of my heli?
thanks

it will give it more leverage and likely make it more stable but have faster roll rates.

at least im pretty sure maybe some one can confirm this for us?

Who cares... its just money...

Will definitely give a faster roll and flip rate. Not sure about stability?

Very high, very fast, too much money, no you cant have a go!

If the cyclic are to fast for you, just add some flybar weights to the flybar.

In part 10 of this writeup is a dicussion how flybar length affects stability and cyclic rates.

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

The falcon currently has flybar weights on it now. I am what I would be an intermediate pilot so I might want to keep the weights. i guess from the comments the weights will lessen the cyclic controls? so do I move the weights in as I become a better pilot?
thanks

The weights will lessen the cyclic, As you get use to the cyclic controls start moving them in until you don't need them.

GyroFreak.. Great info, now if I could understand it without my head hurting.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.
