Have you guys had any problems with the Cage bending in flight. I am not binding or anything, but after an aggressive flight, the bars where the links attach to the Cage are bent??! You guys have anything similar happen?

Mine are bent, however it has been crashed one time. So I can not say for sure that they bent under normal flying. Although I would swear that they were not bent when I fixed it after my crash.

Just imagine the metal rod that connects the two halves of the fly bar cage. It has a ball on it to receive the washout link. Both of these rods are slightly bent.

I am actually out in So Cal right now 770, you are more than welcome to come look at it. It is bent right where the ball link is at, essentially at its weakest point because of the taper down just before the ball. You can very easily bend it with your hand, and in my opinion, needs to be addressed by Outrage. A good buddy of mine also had his bend on his second flight.

It's been over a 100 degrees here. Did you bring the heat wave with you!?

I am up in the High Desert (Apple Valley), and yes, it is freakn hot out here!!! I got sunburned at the flying field this past weekend. My helicopters like the Midwest better I think.
