you asked if those little tb flags buzz or not, and I suppose they might, so best would be to wrap the links with the tape while directing the tape seam to follow the rotor rotation, Duct tape adhesive is strong and annoying, cleans up with wd40 or household paint thinner. Colored shrink tube would work also.

I have some orange florescent flags on my canopy clips, those seen on rc cars. The other day one came off in a lite crash into grass. I payed no worry when I had already brought the heli inside to discover this. Upon going to the crash scene after, I saw the small orange flag at ten feet from where I was approaching. Without the marker it would have disappeared.

Not a BFD in the grand scheme of R/C helis.

just gets 'spensive when you can't find the proper size, make, or ends quickly and have to chase around some to get the heli back in the air, but that's why real rc heli enthusiasts have a second heli ready at all times, lol.
