Well, technically, it will reduce the amount of blade pitch moved for a given servo movement amount (increases the reduction ratio from servo to grip). What that actually does? TBD. My guess is make it more precise since you'll have more servo resolution, especially in collective.

Sounds good... thanks for the info, looking forward to read feedback if someone grabs one!

I've tried one on my 150x and it is more stable and accurate, a little slower though, somehow feels like a 450.

I started the thread but never got this part. Rather than pouring more money into my 150DFC, I did go and buy a new 150X. The new 150X has a steel main shaft (vs aluminum on 150DFC) but does not have these new grips.

Maybe next time I crash one of them I'll do the upgrade, seems a shame to replace brand new parts on a new heli.
