How often should you replace blade dampeners when you don't fly very often???

No 3D I'd Say. Every 50 flights.
3D about every dozen, or two.

Just guessing.

Personally I don't even think about it. I'd say that they can last more than 50 flights, no matter the flying style. I don't think I'll worry about mine for quite a while, but it's up to the pilot really, because it never hurts to check them or replace "too" often . If you stay on the early side you're probably doing yourself good because you definately don't want to accidentally go too long.

If you're flying a cheap knockoff replace them on a regular bases. Especially on the 450 size.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

I hear this question a lot but no one ever comments on the flight characteristics that lets you know when to change them. Is everyone changing them because you were told to?
If not can someone please explain how you can tell the difference between good and bad dampening in flight as well as the difference between soft and hard dampener characteristics?

Dampers too hard or too soft may cause a bounce on the helicopter during manuvers like tic tocs, ect. If you need to change them you might see some wobbles in a hover.

more on my dampeners question......

What size would be best for a 50 size nitro. What softness or hardness would be best for a non-3D flying heli??
