Default 230s V2 worn out

Hey gents, I finally have worn out my 230s V2 and have a couple questions

First, has anyone ever looked into the rotor head/hub? Is the hole the feathering shaft goes through normally oval shape?

Second, are the pink dampers the most likely parts to wear in the rotor head?

Last, my 230s motor bogs a bit when doing acrobatics, especially in high rates and pulling high G maneuvers. The 150s has a mix that helps with this (see pic). Has anyone tried this mix in the 230 to help add rpm when pulling tight maneuvers?

yes the hole in the head is usually oval when I have looked inside them.
The factory dampers are orange. Not sure where you've seen pink ones. Bearings usually wear out in these before the dampers though. Or at least around the same time. Especially if it's been crashed a bit.

If the head is sloppy, just buy a complete new head. It's like $16, and is a complete assembled head with all new bearings, grips, dampers, spindle, etc. Way easier than buying parts and assembling yourself.

Try changing the throttle curves a bit to see if that helps. Pretty much all heli's will have some bog though when doing high G maneuvers

Pink, orange, coulda been the lighting. Dunno.

As far as throttle curve, do you have any suggestions? Iíve never deviated from the Blade manuals on these guys.

I fly primarily Agility/IU2

I do more sport type flying with light 3D and, as I get better, I am wearing out more parts now rather than replacing broken parts. A new rotor head and mainshaft bearings with a new main gear should replace everything. I haven't had any wear problems with the servos and the motors have kept going without issue. Push rods and dog bone links wear but they are as cheap as chips.
