Default Do I need a Milton mod

Just wondering if I need to Milton mod this heli. It's stretched and running an OS .50 and I'll be throwing an IKon HD on it.

Or can I just get away with the 3M 4011 tape?

I just use the 3M tape. My nx4 is the .37 and has been perfect since I switched to the Ikon2.

Hi, check the vibration logs once it is up and running. You might need a double layer of 3M tape, or a Futaba pad. (the latter seems to be recommended by the MSH guys).

I removed two Milton mods from IC frames as it didn't improve / change the vibration levels.

Ps. You should also see the effect of an engine that is running rich and rough vs a well-tuned engine. much lower vibs (obviously)

Thank you. I checked the vibe levels and was seeing vibes on the tail. I need a new starter shaft so I've decided to break it down and go through it piece by piece.
