Taking off my Outrage hat and putting on my HF Support Hat here.

Let's all play nice, and remember this thread is for Charley to provide information about the 90, not the place for this kind of discussion.

I think its AWSOME that Outrage let a Build info run and inform People about the Status of this Killer-90 (dont know any other Manufacturer who do this)!!

i am shure they will do a Perfect Job on that 90!

Its cool that we can sometime step in ,and give a Idee or however, but i am shure finally the Teampilots, which flies mostly 10 Times better then most of us ,know how to find the best solution.

I have oserve many Manufacturer for a loong time, but the Outrage-Team have so much improofe in any aspects,
and the open Way they talk to the Public and improofe and Update Products are just unbeaten...

Quote "All I see are 8 bearings that need to be replaced after a crash. I don't care how much parasitic drag there is on a standard washout base. That's just not necessary"

I don't believe it's about drag. I think the idea is to eliminate the rocking motion that always develops in the washout base and hence slop. On every flybarred machine I have seen and owned, the washout base is a major source of slop because of the unavaoidable clearance between the main shaft and the base. IMHO, it's a really good idea which should result in a much tighter control system. Personally, I wouldn't expect the bearings to need replacement except in the worst of crashes.

I had the pleasure of taking a look-see at the prototypes at Huntsville and saw a couple flights too. All I can say is look out peeps, this bird's gonna rock! The only question for me is to keep holding on to my Aurora or not. ;)

It's a tough burden to bear but I try to work through it. ;)

Looking at the pic of the head, the bearings everyone's discussing appear to be akin to a track roller concept. Is that correct? Are the rollers v-grooved or something like that?

I'm pretty sure they are just bearings. The shaft does the centering.

It would be a little unorthodox to have the pins simply glide against roller bearing races. Since the outer races are ground to a very fine surface profile, they may be too slippery to make them roll. I can't from the pic. You may be right, though. I thought I saw roller bearings on the outside of the block, but perhaps I don't really see what's going on. Linear bearings could be used inside the block.

The bearings are bolted into a small cut out for each bearing, the washout pins simply ride down along the outside of the 4 bearings, smooth as silk

Someone asked me last week what would happen if the BB were to fail, my response was "then it will act like any other washout out there".

That is correct! it still has slots in the material to catch if bearing were to by chance fall off....

Charley,
I won't ask when I can get mine, even though I want to know, but I do want to ask...Is everything going to plan with the prototypes and production plans?

Everything is going Well, we had 2 small issues that has held us up a little but all is still going good and strong. Hope to have more info soon to release plus you will start seeing more videos soon.

discoferret,

It is currently only in Prototype and things may change, right now only the Factory Pilots have them, I'll leave this up to Charley if he wants to pass that info along just yet as I know there are a few minor things changing

There is a pic of the 90 beside the 50. It's very close in size, meaning height, fuse length, & width. The "compact frame" concept bar is raised. I hear he's working on a 250 size, but it runs a 25cc Gasser! JK!;)
