Good flying.. Looks like the tail wag is just about totally gone and it holds very well. I like the yellow blades, they show up very well.

I've got yellow blades on all my small Blades. Really makes a difference.
They're all microheli weightless. I've got a set of Rail carbons coming for the 130....

Indeed.

Thanks. The tail wag is pretty much gone, but the tail is not holding well anymore. I think my tail motor is starting to go, getting about 30 degree blowouts. I made myself a homemade 42mm TR (added masking tape to the ends....) and we'll see if it's any better... but I will probably need a new tail motor, yet again

And yeah, yellow baldes are nice. Although, flying in the direct sun, they are not much better than stock, maybe due to the reflective Xtreme sticker on the top of the blade But yes, I tried flying at dusk with the stock blades, lost orientation about a thousand times... switched to the Yellow Xtreme blades and all was fixed.

Kpilot, that vid was with 140mm blades and a stretched tail? Looked good.

I think the 47mm lynx tr would be the way to go, the stock seems small to me . I got a solid tail shaft coming, would like to get boom supports. Was going to try to make a custom tail shaft from old boom supports from old helis but none were the right size.

I run the 47mm's.. They are a lot better for piro rate, but the wag was still there. The boom supports really seem to limit the wag..

I also glued the tail fin down so it wasn't flapping all over and that seemed to help. I had to check spindle for straightness and noticed it was rather stiff in the head bushings so I put some oil on them and that helped with tracking.

My BL endured its last crash in my ownership

Hard enough to break the frame, crash was caused by a random tail motor failure...

Gonna probably sell it to fund my other projects...

I take back what I said about the stock tail boom, didn't seem that bad initially but has all kinds of flex now. Definitely need to get a solid boom our make one, and obviously boom supports would be that much better.

I just got my carbon skids and boom support kit installed. This is by far the best upgrade yet for my BL. After a while, the boom gets loose where it slides into the frame and the boom supports keep it from sliding out when doing hard manuvers. It also stiffens the boom, as the stock boom is kind of flexy.

I also like the above canopy better for orientation. The silver windshield really helps for inverted/upright maneuvering.

Yeah I got a canopy with a chrome windshield for my nano and that made a huge difference in visibility/orientation.

I was flying the BL today and got into a branch, hit throttle hold and let it fall to the ground and now the tail motor just twitches, tried unplugging it a few times. Hopefully it is just the motor and not the mainboard.
