Guys there must be some serious hours on some of these now.

After my initials i can report nothing falling off or failing.

So who has the most airframe hours?

This may be deemed as a positive post for those who cannot decide

Man I wish our weather here would clear so I could get mine going again. Mine is holding up well on the shelf.

so far, (apart from a minor crown gear munching problem thats now sorted),....... FECKIN WELL!!

Some have said that the mainshaft and spindle are very soft and bend hard in a crash. Fortunately I've not had the pleasure of experiencing a crash with mine yet, but no doubt since I just opened my gob on that I'll surely spank it next time I fly it... Sods law and all that

Cheers, Will.

80 - 90 tanks of pretty hard flying so far. No noticeable wear. I left a VM for Todd enquiring about the life of the O-ring dampers. Maybe this is no issue. I have not had any indication of wear on the dampers, just playing it safe.

My first machine is holding up ok now. I had initial crown gear munching problems at first but since then it's going great. I did notice that the original dampers were getting chewed up when I pulled them to fit the harder ones and I have only maybe run 8 gallon thought it flying reasonably hard 3D....

22 gallons (130 flights since August) and my Synergy if flying great. I'm thinking of changing out the O rings as they are now softer than when new (installed with medium and thick washers). I'm seeing the boom bounce a bit in tic tocks but controlling direction when doing pirouetting loops is easier with softer O rings.

I did have an incident with the ground a few months back but I can say I would have had more damage if the spindle was harder, might have broken one or two main blade holders.

I've taken the machine apart a few times for maintenance and I can't find anything worn beyond what I consider reasonable and I'm picky. The TT hex coupler has loosened up and I did replace the four links on the long rods from the swash to the mixer arms. One link ball on a mixer was replaced (stock ball). All the other links and link balls are original. Checked the tail gear wear and the mesh didn't need to be adjusted.

If anything my AZ Heli Canopy is showing signs of cracking in the paint but it still looks good after 6 months. I just fuel and fly. Maintenance is almost not required. I just keep an eye on things as I’m still learning how this machine holds up. I think my servos will wear out before the heli.

Sounds real good Charles. Mine don't have that many flight but is holding up great. I working on my second N-9 now. I think I'm going to try the Futaba 9151's in this one. Keep up all the great updates. Matt(Bad-Ass)Botos says his N9's are still going since he got them in July. You know he rings them out real well. I would say the reports I've seen and read about the New Synergy N9 are really great the way they are holding up. I think Jason and Todd have a keeper here.

I know what Matt is using. I said I'm going to try 9151's which has 132 oz in of torque and does not have metal gears. It is very close to the 9255's. My first post was not a typo.

Hi Bill aka the Hammer,

Good to hear your N9 is holding up well and a second N9, very nice! Now that the temps are going down in DC the amount of flying I do will go down. May be you can try to catch up. Just fly 2 or 3 gallons every weekend and you might. Well maybe not Louisville is not that much south of DC and your in the open part of the country. Winters must be harder there.

Did you make it to IRCHA SE? Last time I saw Matt was at IRCHA. His flying has improved greatly since he started flying the Synergy.

Hi Charles, No I did not get to the Ircha SE either. Last time I seen Matt was at Ircha also. I have heard he is getting better all the time.
It is getting cold here also. We have put some clear plastic wrap around one of our out buildings at the field and am planning on putting in a gas heater. So maybe we will get in some flying this winter. I have to have some heat because I'm a fair weather flyer.

I'm already looking forward to going to the 2007 XFC in Troy, Ohio. 2007 I think is going to be the year for the XFC. I hope Jason is fine tuning his skills, Matt will be ready as always, and the Sazbo's will be there ready also. It will be one great show. If you make it there I'll see ya, if not I'll see you at Ircha 2007.

The Synergy is here to stay and the customer service is second to none. Thanks to Todd and Jason.

Bill
