Mounting tapes

Posted 02-04-2011 at 03:17 AM by nwmtech

I put a couple flights in at lunch yesterday and thought I'd pass along what I've found. The 3M 4010 clear double sided tape (gel really) works great. I'm using two layers on both the 700n and the N5 with MB and have had great results. I tried the N5 on the MB included foam with no strap and the results were really bad. I got a lot of drifting on full collective punch outs and lots of cyclic bobbles. I'm sure strapping it down tight would help but there's no spot on the N5 to put a strap on sideways, only front to back. Now when I had VBar on the N5 I ran a combo of two layers, metal plate, single layer, then the sensor and that worked perfect. Overall, I'm just not seeing any reason to run anything other than this stuff on any current FBL system. On an E heli I'd probably even go to 1 layer first to check it out.

Ordered up all the last bits of "perfection" for the N5 except new servos. I've got some Edge 603 FBL blades, AR7100R, Synergy FBL head, and a couple other items I can't reveal yet coming. Eventually I'll pull the 610's out and swap in some Hyperions but for this round of upgrades I've spent enough.
