Ah yes. I've already had my eye on that Option Hobby CNC Tail Boom mount. That's a nice upgrade. Some guys thought the plastic one was better cause it insulated the frame from TT vibrations. I'm not buying that.

I'm working with the IKON FBL unit. My servos don't seem to be moving right. They are very sluggish. Savox 1258TG on Cyclic, and 1290MG on Tail. I'm not sure what gives here. I bought this IKON used. I'm hoping I didn't buy a lemon.

I'm not familiar with IKON or Savox servos. If you had a Vbar question I could probably help with that but place a post over on "flybarless controllers" and I'm sure someone can help out. It may just be a quick setting change.

If you get the Option Hobby boom mount be sure to pick up some 4 or 5 mm screws, the screws that come in the package are too long and will bottom out before they tighten up. Lucky for me I had some extra screws laying around otherwise I would have been very bummed.
Also there's no instructions so I pulled up the photos on Option Hobbies site, used them as a guide and figured out how to asemble the pieces. It's really not all that hard and I can help you out if you get stuck.

Let me know how it goes with the IKON unit, I've always been curious how well the bailout works since Vbar does not have that feature.

Use the alignment pins through the frame/bell crank when you set up the servos and level the swash. Those pins are the best thing ever invented and all manufactures should catch on and use them.

Outrage really does have some great design ideas!

Fusion 50 FBL. I should get it next week. Pretty geeked about it.
Congrats and welcome to Outrage. The Fusion is a workhorse when setup right. Best of luck with your 6s setup (same setup I run.)
Here is a quick vid to keep those gears free from stripping:

Good vid.

I run a little grease on my gears too, just without the heavy accent.

LOL..some cheap lithium grease from walmart works fine. I don't think it's required every flight, just piles up and is messy in the corners behind the servos and the mating frame.

Yea, I was reading about this on another forum. One guy was saying he uses a dry silicone which he says it's actually a teflon coating that he applies with a small brush to all the plastic gears. He bought it at a bicycle shop. Because it doesn't stay greasy, it doesn't attract dirt. I would prefer that to white silicone grease which I do have, but I'm not sure I want it all over my heli. I've never greased my Chaos 600E gears, and they run very smooth with very little noise, of course I'm not a 3D wizard either. I run my HS at around 2000 to 2100 RPM. But I think I'm going to look for this stuff in the local Bike shop and try it on both helis.

KDE Battery Upgrade
I ordered this upgrade Saturday. It should be here the end of the week. I bought an extra battery tray with the upgrade so I can have one tray on the heli, and one loaded with a battery ready to go. I received my new YEP 120HV and got that installed this weekend. I haven't programmed it, yet. All the wiring is done, the Ikon is almost programmed. I have to set up the bail-out, yet. Nice heli. I'll post a picture once I install the battery tray upgrade.

KDE tray, best upgrade for the Fusion. Really allows a lot more room and width for the larger packs. Take your time cutting the frame with the dremel, you only get one shot!

I have a dremmel now but at the time I cut my frame with a hack saw and cleaned up the cut with sand paper. It was fast, easy and looks like a factory cut. This tray is a great upgrade and I run two Pulse 3700 mah packs with plenty of room left. I think I could easily fit 5000 mah packs.

Since I'm running 6S on this heli, my problem is fitting my 5000mah batteries in the frame with the stock battery tray. They simply don't fit with the stock battery tray installed. KDE Direct has the best upgrades. I couldn't do this hobby without my Dremel tool. The CF frame stiffeners that double the frame sides over the skid mounts seem to make a nice straight line to follow to cut the frame sides off for this upgrade. I'm not really crazy about cutting the frame off, but the upgrade will more than make up for the loss of the frame sides.

Yes the frame stiffeners are the perfect guide to cut the frame. Don't worry, once you install the new KDE tray the frame will still be stiff as hell with no flex of any kind. I had the same concern as you and worried i would do something wrong and ruin the frame but it's really no big deal to cut it and very easy to install. Next get the KDE boom supports.

Is it that much better or a "bling" factor? I have the lynx tailboom clamp, because the horizontal fin is useless.

I'm not familiar with the lynx tail boom clamp but I do have the KDE boom supports. They are much thicker and stiffer than stock and take away any chance of boom flex.......and there's also the bling!

Fusion 50 tail
I drilled and mounted a Align 700 Vertical Fin on the 50. Also mounted a small wheel off toy car to the bottom of the fin. I fly on a hillside in the grass and this gives extra clearance and keeps fin from digging in the dirt.

I have the Option Hobby cnc tail boom mount coming. I installed the KDE battery tray upgrade. It looks sweet! I'm looking forward to getting the new tail boom mount. I'm also starting to build up my spare parts. I like to have a couple of crashes worth of spares. I crash way too much for my own liking but it's just part of the hobby. I need to order more main blade replacements. I'll have those before flying season comes around again. We're in the midst of a blizzard. Should have more than 15" of snow before it's all over. Good sim time. I'm looking forward to maiden this little beauty. I'll just have to be patient.
