Might be useful to get a consensus of what set ups we are using (before I go and buy!)

ie Engine / pipe combo, Servos, gyro, gov, blades, head speed.

I was thinking of DS8717 on the head, JR770 gyro, Radix 600, YS50 / Hatori, this works well with 2k at the head in my Trex 600.

If you want a really quick cycic and collective i use what you suggest but i use the Radix SB blades and stock paddles without the weights. I have the YS and Hatori 522 and 8717's. Dont use the stock plastic TR blades,i use the radix 92mm blades. with this set up it will be very fast but not pitchy in FFF. It flys so much better and smoother than my 600 i sold it and bought another Vibe.

Back to back
It's great to have a look at everyone's spec's. We all overlap somewhere.

2 things:

1. Cyclic for me = JR-8511's which are @ 6V, 25kg/cm and 0.18sec/60deg

From all the posts, my cyclics are the slowest, but strongest. Does anyone with the ultra fast cyclics like the 8717's sometimes feel (when trying to make their heli explode in mid-air) that although the servo's speed rating is thus, there's too much load at certain points and the reaction to your input is a little slower somtimes?

2. Pipes.

Always had CY MP's on 90 & 50. Never had a Hatori. This debate brings out the true Brand loyalists!! I know it hard becasue of different set-ups and tuning and head speeds even when you change a pipe and nothing else. So for those who have given both pipes an objective run as much as possible, what did they settle upon. Were there different Max outputs, different (broader or less-broader) torque curves? Was the Engine happier at a different RPM. All that sort of Jazz would be cool to read.

cheers
