Thanks, but i really need it to be a hard-case, and silver would not only match my other cases, but look the biz aswell.

This is what i have in mind.

But a bit smaller.

Thanks Bob/Guy TBH That kinda sounds like the answer I had in the back of my head but just didnt want to listen to.

OK presently lets be practicial then

I'm running a hyper, 600's 90mm tails 560..Quick UK headblock and swash..revmax at 1950 Strandard TT exhaust Quick stainless tail hub. Paddles are TT greenies

The servo's are ancient except for pitch and tail..9450 and 9254 which are good. The cyclics are 3001..and well past there sell buy date. (I daren't tell you how old they are!) The tail servo is up front (where I prefer) and a 1400 nicad leaves me a little nose heavy

Overall it's a bit loose when flown and I want to get that crisp locked in feel I get with my Dyna-X..I know I know it's chalk and cheese..BUT..

It has plenty of room for improvement + a larger capacity battery would be a bonus.

So what order do I start?

Well the Quick UK tailgrips are first on the list as I've already chucked a couple holders in the past.

I also cracked the tail case piro flipping but put that down to overtightning the bolts as I had a wrap of tape under it to prevent it moving (the plastic knobs were worn.)

What do you recommend? Servo's9252's? Exhaust MP Q or Zimmie, Titan boom/belt to help balance with CG allowing a larger capoacity battery

BTW I have a spare Duralite Reg sitting so I could go to lion or lipo

Guy I do like the pushrod conversion..what bellcrank did you use?

Is there anything I've missed/don't require or that I should do etc?

thanks

For the pushrod conversion, I used an R90 mixer and 2 QUK boom servo mounts held together with a small aluminium plate for strength.

9252s are very good; they're accurate, reasonably fast, last well and fairly crash resistant. The 9255 is reasonable on collective but something a bit quicker would be better.

To get a decent number of flights, I use Sub C cells but my R50 used to be nose heavy until I decided to split the pack. I now have 2 cells up front and 2 above the tank. These are 4100mAh NiMH cells and it now balances perfectly. A regulated system would be better due to consistent servo performance but at the same time, having more technology means there is more to go wrong.

I cracked a couple of tailcases due to blade problems. Am now using the QUK aly cases which work well - fairly crash resistant, and probably more reliable in the long run because it doesn't use the idler pulley so you have less parts to fail.

Hi

I have the Compass CCPM conversion on mine, a Duralite 6v set up with a 2800ma pack and 9255's on the CCPM, this works very nicely but I agree the 9255's and Duralite could be seen as a little overkill on a hack model, howeven none of this stuff normally gets hurts in a pile in.
If you can get 9252's still then might be the way to go.
Go for a MP2 or the Hatori 522 (very similar to the JK version)
Up your headspeed a little and you should have a crisp flying model.

Cheers
Bob J
