07-06-2006, 12:05 AM
Well on both of mine I am running SAB 80mm cf tr blades, they seem to work well, however I do feel my tail authority is lacking abit. Now... before just going out on a purchase for something different, I thought to see what others may be using. I should also state that I do in fact have the upgraded hub with thrust bearings as well, I am running the GY611 and 9256 combo. I have read of some people running 95mm V-Blades for tr which..... man that seems to big a big tr blade for the 14??, I do not mean in regards to hitting the mains as I am not worried about that but, rather working the tail too hard..
Thoughts and what are you using on yours and your thoughts on this...? :dance

I was never really satisfied with the tail of the logo. It was sluggish and waggy. Now I upgraded the long boom, thrust bearings (wich you already have), stronger tail supports (5mm and longer) and 90mm MAH tailblades. Limit on the 611 is set to 140 and 145% w/o binding, gain is at 35% and now it's where I want it. Rock solid like on a .90 machine. Give it a try :)

Thanks for response. The stronger boom supports you speak of did you make these yourself or where they something you purchased from a vendor?

Homemade out of 5mm CF 5/3mm, m3 threaded rods and m3 ball links. The CF pipes are 500mm long. Plus the ball links they are fairly long and support the boom very good, like on MA machines. I don't use the CF horizontal fin, maybe it won't fit anymore...

Ok thanks Dani, I will have to try that sometime, I have always thought the stock cf rods they provide in the kits are weak, almost non existent to be honest. :glasses:

The logo 14 in the last picture in my gallery has bigger supports on it. I used raptor upgrade cnc ends, and bought the rods. Its the one with the red kontronic esc on the front.
When I crashed a while back I had no damage to the rear of the heli, but took out the blades spindle, main, etc.
Now that the trex 600 is out, I will probably get another set of the cnc ends for my logo 10. I bet they are very inexpensive compared to most others...

That looks strong indeed gordo, that must be a revolution boom support kit?

I can't remember where I got the ends, but I had to bend the two that connect to the boom. I used a vice and carefully bent them at about 30 deg. or so and got no cracks. The rods are just regular carbon tubing. It really makes a rigid setup, specially compared to the little ones you get with the logo kit.
Now that I have built the trex 600,(and seen firsthand), I will order their supports for my other logo. Their not quite as beefy but I'm sure they will add more support than the stock ones.
Now If I just had my logo cnc buttons I'd be happy... :D

Alu, when you are running 90 mm tail blades, how far out on the servo horn do you have your tail pushrod?
