Hey, not finding much info on Velocity 50 pilots using the CSM Carbsmart. I'd like to give it a try and I'm hoping to get a few ideas before purchasing.

If anyone has done it, let me know what has worked well for you. Also, any additional details would be helpful - rod length, servo you used, etc?

Thanks!!

None of the Team guys have experimented with a Carb device, from what I've seen the NR57 and YS56 seem to hold there own with out requiring anything

I have one fitted.
Would'nt be without one as I have mentioned in past posts this thing does really keep the temp of the engine constant through-out your flight.
You can see the needle arm move about a third of a turn.
Hovering, the needle goes to your pre-set lean position.
3D you are working the engine, burning more fuel, engine heats up, you see the needle richen up!!
You cannot keep constant temp with a needle that is fixed!!
Its amazing watching the needle arm or servo working.
I have a NR57 fitted with the optional arm and the carb-smart set to 100 degC. I made a bracket out of Carbon to mount the servo.
CSM do 100mm extensions as an option and I have used these on the Carb-Smart, Revlock and the 720 gyro for the neatest ever installation!!
The Carb smart works a treat.
This is the simplest thing I have set-up on a heli in 25 years!!!

Well 3DST, you inspired me. I ended up going with a Multi-gov pro... Going to do a Hyperion DS11 digital for mixture control.

We'll see how it goes with my YS50... Thanks!!!
