x50 softer dampers
hello guys,
i've been away from helis for a few months.
so have anyone or thunder tiger themselfs develop a softer dampers for the x50 yet?
there are some of us who like up upgrade to the newer frame design but still enjoy relaxing lower head speed and soft flying maneuvers.

thanks for any responses.

Softer Rubbers
The standard kit ones are fine even for the lover head speed hovering style set up. I like to start off a new model with a lower head speed to run in new motors and the X50 with a lower than 3D style head speed is a nice machine to fly. I ended up passing my tx to a guy who has just passed the hovering stage as i find it gets boring after a while he loved it so much he went out and got one.
No you cant park your car in there its for my toys

Well, I lubed my spindle and dampers properly and I get the oscillation when I run a lower head speed.
When I increase the head speed the oscillation stop immediately.

A softer damper is what i'm looking for in this situation.

I haven't tried loosening the blade grip bolt, but I will give that a go and see if it will help. Right now it is quite tight onto the blades.

I have seen several people saying their X-50 vibrates at lower head speeds. Mine seems to do OK. I have even flown it at lower speeds with wooden blades. Iduno what to tell you. As far as I know the red and black dampers are the only ones that fit. The X-50 has bigger a feathering shaft as you probably already knew.
I don't think the X-50 was made for relaxed flying though. It wants to rip and roar

For what its worth - I too have struggled in the past with x50 vibrations with any head speed lower than 2170 with the provided stock blades. Granted the blades total weighed within .1 grams of each other and I never checked their individual cg's or tried to match the cgs. Changed everything else like main shaft, motor clutch, checked thrust bearing orientation ect. to no avail since new.

Then A buddy and I switched blades as he had a pair of Mavirk carbons (the $47 patrotic red/white/blue cheepos from heliproz)on a helimax 50.

The vibration went with the blades as his now vibrated and mine didn't at basically any head speed from the 2170 down to 1400.

This is just my experience and I'm convinced that the cg's are off or that the slightly heavier blades have fixed the problem. Needless to say my buddy wanted his back so now I have a set on order. I would really like to hear if others have tried (with success) the Mavrik g4 or 5 pros as I like the color scheme better. I am patrotic but the cheepos just have too much color going on with the nice canopy.

Now that you mention it, I don't think I have tried lower head speeds with the Thunder tiger blades. I still have them and as a matter of fact they are back on my X-50 now. If I take it out this weekend,I will try lowering the headspeed and get back here.
