I fly sport and mild 3d at lower head speeds, 1700-1900 and was wondering what dampeners younall recommend?

the 2756 soft dampeners are the softest, imo they're mushy for that rpm range with 550mm blades.

the stock 3092 hard dampeners are soft enough for that rpm range with 600mm, I don't remember having a problem with them at the top end of that range with 550mm....I remember the old really low-rpm flybar kits coming with mid-range dampeners

...but I can't remember the part number for those. They should still be on the RH website, probably somewhere between 2756 and 3092.

What dampeners did you end up going with? If you're going to use the Spin asymmetricals, you won't need soft dampening.

KC,

I bought a L600 airframe with BennyTRD rotor head. I'm gonna either keep this setup or switch over to the SX style head with shorter main shaft.

I dunno what a Benny TRD head is, but the stock 600 head will do low rpm with 550mm

Lots of guys cut down the Logo 600 boom to logo 500 length and run 550mm, it works good.

Haven't tried an SX head, but raising the battery 1/2 an inch would bring the center mass to the rotor better than lowering the rotor head to the boom.
