I did quite a bit of experimentation a few years back ('95 I think) with flybar length. I made flybars from 17" to 29" in 1/2 inch increments and flew all of them. At the time my focus was on F3C, and the shortest flybar would "sit" much better in the hover (drastic difference from the longest) but the control power for aerobatics was almost non-existant. The longest flybar didn't sit well in hover, but aerobatics were far better. After some head-scratching, I tried some flybar stiffeners. It seems that longer is better for aerbatics and "tracking" like a pattern plane in fast flight, but stiffness is the critical thing in hovering. What I ended up with was the long flybar, but with stiffeners. Once the long flybar was stiffened, it hovered as well as the short flybar,..but gave the long-flybar advantages "upstairs". Nowadays, I can't find the 4mm ID (really 5/32") carbon tubes anymore, so i'm not using stiffeners, but I'm not currently flying F3C, and hovering stability isn't a great concern.

I am flying the new Logo 10 3D kit with a Hacker C50 13L motor on TP 4s4p 8200's
The stock flybar that comes with the kit is 300mm and there is an upgrade flybar that I can get that is 330mm

I know you are flying a logo 10 have you done much experinmenting on your logo 10 as far as flybars ?

I just put the longer flybar in, but haven't flown it with it yet. I had a couple disastrous incidents and have spent the last week re-building both my logo 10 and my bionic I put the longer flybar in during the rebuild, and I leave tommorrow for the NEAT fair in new york (not looking forward to the 1300mile drive either), so I'll get the setup there and fly some.
