2 layers of red backed 3m = nitro
1 layer red backed = electric

This has ALWAYS worked for me for any FBL unit I have used!

The tape used depends on the heli and the mood of the FBL system.

I have two beastx's. One is mounted with the stock beastx tape and the other is mounted with tape so soft and spongy that I wouldn't have dare recommend using it a month ago. But now that I'm using it, it is hard to refute.

It seams that each FBL unit, individually, has its own unique characteristics. Then combine that with a multitude of Heli, motor and servos combinations, and your on your own to find a tape that makes the match work.

I have only recently seen what a huge difference the type of tape makes. I am talking from unflyable to rock steady.
