For $10 (the cost of a swashplate) this mod will SO drastically improve the performance of your MSR. This mod shouldn't be a mod. Because it works so much better than the stock flybar, it should...

What do they use to lube the bearings at the factory, Hank? Some kind of dirty grease and certainly not graphite. Did you know that dirt does not stick to silicone? Seems kind of strange that my...

Question: have you ever lubricated your MSR?

I got my Microheli blade grips last week and the ball joints do seem tight (just like the swashplate) but it's not the ball joints that are the...

Version 2

This time I used 3/32" tubing which is even lighter than 1/8". If I ever manage to break the chassis mount pins I can buy another stock landing gear, cut it down and glue the aluminum gear onto it. ...

MSR aluminum tube landing gear

This landing gear is my third attempt and is the strongest, lightest and best looking mod I've done yet. I bought a new set and cut the skis and about half of the struts off. I took some 1/8"...

MSR - indestructible landing gear and severely reduced tail blowout TBO

This landing gear will survive a 30 foot fall onto grass no problem. Sure it weighs a tiny bit more than stock but my heli has no problems lifting it whatsoever. I hot glued it right to the frame...

MSR - How I went from having massive TBE to rock solid stable

There were times when my MSR flew so erratically and wandered around so much I didn't even want to fly it anymore. And now it's as solid as a rock and that's because I don't have any loose AND...

I don't know what to say. I bought my swash 4 days ago and it works perfectly right out of the bag and I've flown the hell out of it (well over 100 flights so far). I also tried to pop the steel...

Why would I want to do that when my MSR hovers better than it ever did? I'm just throwing the idea out that sanding the parts may not always be necessary. After one flight of moving the right stick...

I work too hard for my money and as looks are not important but functionality and strength are, here's what my MSR looks like. It was tricky to tape the landing gear to the front chassis mount...

I finally wrecked my stock MSR swashplate from lots of use and lots of crashes. The pivot ball that sits inside the bearing has much up & down play and pops out after every crash but the heli...

Foil tape for MSR repairs - ugly but strong and lightweight

I LOVE foil tape. As an MSR owner I broke 4 sets of landing gear in my first 4 days. I bought one last set of landing gear but this time I wrapped the entire gear with 1/4" strips of foil tape -...

MSR - TBE was caused by swashplate arms?

Howdy y'all. :D My MSR had pretty bad TBE out of the box. I checked the blade grips, balancing, tracking, feathering shaft, flybar (I even tried the spare), ball links, linkages, anti-rotation...

MSR carbon rod reinforced landing gear + permanent 250mAh Li-Po holder

New MSR won't maintain steady heading
