I think I'm going to put the new Align FBL system on my Vibe 50. Added to the YS 56 and 610 blades should give me gobs of power. Its going to be quite a hot rod

I have the 55HZ and hatori pipe. Even running rich for break in (Carb Smart on 90c) it is a beast.

Best upgrade is a second torque tube bearing to get rid of the tail hum.

Are these different from the current metal grips from jr? I'm using those with much success...

I gotta believe the grips are the same, I think there is only one version of the JR metal grips

Carbon frames, good question. I would like to know how much lighter they, (and the ones at ready heli) are compared to the G10 frames. I wish they would advertise their weights.

I don't think the carbon frames would be that much lighter. Maybe 2 oz at most for the frames. Best $ spent is a more powerful motor. Once I put my TT53 with OS 3 needle carb this airframe became a TON more fun to fly. I bet with a YS56SR this thing would be AWESOME .

To answer the original question, Tail Blades MUST be replaced, I like the MSH 85mm. Motor Pipe is the best money spent, YS56 with Hatori 556.

ASG Metal Grips- Have them, can tell no difference.
ASG Flybar Holder- No difference. had the microheli one, but one crash and it was mangled(very soft)
Carbon Tail Boom - No difference. Thought it would dampen the tail when had vibe problem.
Carbon Tail Braces - no difference.
Carbon Tail Rod - no difference
YS56/hatori - HUGE Difference
Rotortech 610's - My favorite
Stubs 3105 - Tried the 4105's but to pitchy in flght.
Kasama Tail Grips - No Difference, Be careful to replace ball links to short align ones as the tail will BIND if you do not.
Custom heli Parts Front Tray - Love it
Multigov Pro - Mixture control is a waste of time. Tuning a motor based upon temp is a bad idea when ambient changes a lot as it does in texas. In another climate would be fine.
Switchglo - Never leave home without it
JR 770 is great on this heli, I do not like them on smaller ones, like Trex 450 or Vibe 500E but on Med/large Nitro's work great.

I have the YS56 installed with the outrage pipe and rotortech 610s, i just need some nice weather to test it out. I'm expecting an entirely different machine with this combo. With hopes of the FBL adding another 10% power. This thing should be unreal.

Mystic... do you mean that you have the Stubz 393s on because the 3105s were too pitchy? Wondering how you fit 4mm paddles on a 3mm flybar.

I'd like to try a set of the 393s... a lot of money for paddles though. I'm currently using KBDD paddles, but I might cough up the cash for the Stubz soon.

I also have an OS-55HZ and a GP exhaust pipe sitting here... I suppose I should put them on.

For blades, I'd like to try the brand new SAB 620mm 3D blades (same weight as RadixSBs but bigger)... something tells me a 55 with those blades and 393s will rock. I am currently using RT610s and 600SBs... the 610s bog the motor a bit in hard cyclic, but auto far better than the SBs... been doing inverted autos with the Vibe and you'd swear it was a 90.

You are correct, it was not the 4105, my mistake.

Correct went from 3015 Stubz to 393 as the 3015 needed weights to tame it down, and the 393 i do not run weights. Both are 3mm paddles. The 4105 would be the 4mm paddle, hence the first digit in part number 3 vs the starting 4. Nick M. suggested it when he flew my vibe, and i always listen..
