There has been a lot of chatter about 440 x 3mm flybars making an unscheduled departure in flight and I read that some peeps are installing, with some drilling, a 4mm version.

Does anyone have a source for a 440 x 4mm rod? I don't mind reshaping aluminum, but I hate cutting threads on steel and I don't want to get a longer one and cut it down.

Just use a different flybar. I have always had good luck with JR's 440mm. Seems to be a bit stiffer also. As far as departure from the heli, I really can't see how this is happening unless there is a hairline fracture or something. Solid rod secured with two set screws with paddles on both sides. Somebody is missing something or doing something wrong. JMHO

i agree, somethings wrong. Its just that if anyone's figured it out yet, they're not talking. There doesn't seem to be a smoking gun.

You could always just add the Quick UK fly-bar stiffener if you didn't want to "upgrade" to a 4MM

I would be concerned that the stiffeners would concentrate bending forces at the known fail point.

I am probably NOT going to do a 4mm mod, I'm just researching it for now... but if I sling one...

Kasama seem to indicate some parts for a 4mm flybar, however I dont know which flybar carrier would do the job.
