with epoxy or something else
I CA'ed them. Tip comes from CY. It should make them last even longer. I am sure they will go over 100 flights this time. I glue the outside to the head block and then use di-electric greese on the spindle.

just curios but how does the gluing them help i also have kept them greased to insure the flex to accure for the dampening so as to not cause the stiffness of hard dappening can occure

maybe the gluing holds them better so they don't get bound up and over compress.

I've always just lubed the hell out of them.

Then again my definition of hard flying is bogging the hell out of the heli trying to avoid the gravity dirt nap! Maybe when I get better it will be more of an issue

So far i have tried the Orange and yellow ones. The orange ones are crazy hard and the spindle feels like it was welded to the headblock, but there was no signs of wobbling in the head. I have to do a few more flights on the yellow ones, then go to the stock black ones for awhile, then the orange ones again. Ill get around to forming a conclusion in a month or so.

I've got some prototype KBDD's that are looking pretty pimp. The original prototype greenies Eric Brandenburg flew at B-ham he thought were a bit too stiff, so I got some that aren't quite as hard. I want to give these a good and see how they feel. My first Velocity 50 is due for a damper change so good excuse to give them a try. I really like these new one's though, at least how they look and feel in the hand hehe!

The ones they tried at b-ham were not to stiff they just did not seat them right. I have a set of them in my Velocity and have 38 flights on them no issues and no wear at all.

So tell us, "how do you seat them correctly" typically the damper is pushed flush into the head, the spindle is then greased and pushed thru the dampers at least that is how I've been doing it for the last 7 years.

Steven is getting around 100 flights on his Vel 50's with the stock dampers.

As far as I understood it they were installed without lube, and it was causing them to hang up on the spindle shaft. I did not have the issue so am not exactly sure what happened.

Alittle spit on the spindle goes a long way when trying to push them thro the KBDD dampers. I am going back to the orange dampers shortly.
