I read about relocating the tail boom braces to the frame instead of on the struts on the NX. Can't find where I read it, But was thinking of modifying a set of raptor 30 braces to bolt underneath the struts suing the bolts that fasten the rear strut to the frame. I figure it's much more solid that way, and doesn't look near as much of an after thought as it does now.

While I am at it, I would like to find a set of struts that are a bit wider to allow me to attach my floats for use in the winter. I don't like the way they look just attached with zip ties. If not for the height of the stock struts, this would be an easy fix, just bolt the floats up using the struts that came with them.

I have used several struts and found the Radikal G30 high profile the best for the swift in looks, height, and enought beef to handle hard landings. This for the old swift 16 given battery sit under them.

HIGH PROFILE LANDING STRUTS
Part# HI6122D

Other vibration issues concerning tail can also be related to resonance when spooling off hard surfaces.

Boom braces going to frame. I need to update my gallery for such references...sorry.

Got myself a set of carbon boom braces with nice purple alum ends to put on my swift nx. Mounted them on the bottom of the struts using the bolts that hold the struts to the frame. Looks pretty good, now just need to relocate my tail servo and get the carbon pushrod made up for that.
