hi all!

dont get rid of those dampners!, they work great!

yes they were very notchy when i 1st installed them with my metal blade grips and v blades, but they are fine when in flight.

if they were made so the grips rotate smoothly, i dont think the dampners will last long. slop will develop and your dampners will wear. but because these dampners give a tight fit when new, slop will develop and the fit will be perfect!

the only downside is that the heli nods abit when at the end of an auto, but im sure this will smooth out the more i fly it.

so stick'em on and enjoy!

I noticed this to, they are tight on the bench, but once you start pulling out on the grips, they get super smooth.

But if we are supposed to have them this way, why is invivation release shim kits to fix this?

I wonder how you can say they get smooth while you are pulling the grips with your hands as you loose perception of the amount of force you need to apply to rotate the grips as you are pulling them at the same time... I surely can't.

Like I said before, I understand "some" tightness as with the original black dampers but thats not what most of us are experiencing. Mines lock pretty hard and why should I stress my servos waiting for something to smooth out? Thats something else I keep wondering about... you say the head gets smooth after a few flights so something has to give to get like that... I wonder what... hum? I hope it arn't the plastic sleeves of the dampers...

Exactley tchavei, if all the bearings are seated right, then something is obviously wearing, and its not the head, or the gripsAMain.com

its the dampners that will be wearing. and when they do wear, im sure those shims that infinvation are bringing out, will be used to make the setup tight again.kasama team pilot

The only part that should wear are the o-rings. If its the plastic center part that is deforming, you have a problem. If its starting to shrink under the friction, the o-rings won't fit right and start being compressed.

I'm waiting for some shims to fix this.
Does anybody know the standart shim width/diameter? Lazy going upstairs and check the manual

EDIT: Its part number 50H006 and is 8x11.5x1.3mm Going to try to find something like 8x11.5x1mm... 0.6mm total less should free that head up

Update:

Problem fixed. Replaced the original align 1.3mm shims with 1.0mm shims from a fury. Blade holders are butter smooth now and no endplay or notchiness. I hope this helps someone else whith the same problem

Cheers
Tony
