hi there guys.
starting the build because the postman had a nice fusion 50 for me today :)
the stock dampners seem very soft i must say.
i allready have some yellow kbdd dampners laying around extra but are ment for the trex600,
thay seem to be the right size, are thay ok to use or should i stick with the stock dampners?.

I'm running the stock and they seem VERY stiff once installed and compressed. Actually maybe too stiff. Running at high RPMs they are great, but for low headspeed stuff there is a visible shake (1900 RPM).

mmmh well i will be running around 2150-2200hs.
i was thinking stiff would be better? maybe not snap?

Stiff is for sure better. I normally run 2150 and they seem perfect. No oscillations on hard stops and cyclics are really crisp.

But during my flights, it fun sometimes to mix it up with a low headspeed and do some super slow maneuvers. I need to mess around a bit to find the RPM sweet spot for this.

Anyway, try the stock dampeners first and see how they perform. I think they're already intended for "3D" headspeeds.
