Colsy what about dropping in the Raptor 60/90 item?

May have to do a little cut and shut but should be simple enough. (the later ones also have the extra inner hole for mixing ratio)

Didn't think of that, may measure the 90 carrier up tomorrow, see if it will drop in the Kasama head...

I only want to try the CY stubz, without inserts.

The bearings you need are right on the Raptor crashed parts I`m sure everyone has. The elevator idler arm......A MA flybar 425mm works great with 20 oz MA white paddles.....ASK me how I know....

best bet would be to use mild steel rod and tap threads yourself. Mild steel has the advantage that it will endure more flexing before case hardening and fracture.

No i haven't snapped any yet, but i find they can get bent quite easily, due to handling and i'm desperate to try CY Stubz paddles,

I know have a carrier block fitted with the suitable bearings and just need a flybar.

SO: is the TT 90 flybar hardened, if not then does anyone know the thread size, so i can cut and re-thread one to try.

Cheers.

Like the 50s, you can get mild steel and hardened steel flybars for the 90. One other thing to bear in mind is that a 4mm flybar is alot heavier than 3mm so you'll need it much longer and bigger paddels to compensate.

One consideration with a different flybar. The raptor has flats on it exactly positioned. If you go with a flybar without flats and need to replace it the marks from setscrews will fetch up on the bearing inner race causing grief, and possible removal damage to the tiny bearing. MA flybars will cause removal difficulties used as is. Many helicopter designs suffer this removal issue. Flats are your friend.

I also did it using the MA flybar. I drilled out the stock seasaw on my lathe and found the right size bearings. I was using the Quick UK flybar control arms
