i just found out that the red dampers from readyheli, kinda get crushed by the 2.5mm spacers that go between the blade grips. In the manual they say that those are for 3D so i IMMEDIATley slapped them in there, but i guess they dont work with the red dampers so i switched back to the 1.5mm spacers.

Anyone else noticed this?

fwiw..

Been using the thick shims for some time now, if anything the red dampers get better with time as they extrude into the inner space around the spindle, making the damping crisper...Mine look Gnarly on the outside surface, but still fly great...I'm gonna torture test them to see how long they last...

yea the only reason i noticed it was because there was more of a gap between one blade grip than tho other, now my set has a indentation in the damper, ill post a pic later when my dad leaves lol. will it be ok ifi fly it with the squashyness?
