The Beastx just took my boring Trex600ESP 12s from Mild to WHAT THE F*&% this thing is AWSOME. Its as agile as my Trex500ESP.

My other flying buddy had a FB break on him doing flips yesterday. He saw it fly off and was able to land easily. The heli really only started to wobble on spool down. That makes no less than 5 flybar breaks between my two FB buddies. We had a guy from the Jackson Mississipi club there at the time and he said that nobody at their club has ever broken a flybar. It's weird I tell ya...
What brand of helis were involved?

The design of the seesaw and bell/mixer system, the type of metal used for the flybars, the diameter of the flybar, and the set-up, can have a lot to do with that issue.

I had a flybar break on a sceadu a few years ago and landed without realizing it. We think it broke just before the start of the auto and I didn't notice until it wobbled as the blades spooled down. That was a actually a robust machine and I put a ton of flights on it and it required minimal maintenance. I had a flybar failure on a Vario head and the helicopter blew up in the air. It has a control ball for the grip mounted to the flybar which goes away with it as well as it serves to help create an excellent failure point on the flybar. But Vario has the best 1980s mechanics available today. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Since I get to be the test dummy for every piece of ebay crap someone brings to the field, I've had a chance to land two that lost links of FB helis and both landed ok. You just lose a lot of lift as one blade is left flapping in the wind.
