Is there a big upgrade in performance with the lynx tail because the stock one has some slop.

Depends how well your tail was set up. With a vbar and a ds95i, you can hide almost any tail issue.

Things I have noticed:
1) No fiddling to get the tail built right. Everything was smooth out of the box, no binding etc. My MSH parts, I had to mix and match my tail cases, then chamfer my tail slider, fiddle with bolt tension on the pitch lever etc. In the end, after a 2 hour exercise, I had a nice tail...but the lynx took 5 mins

2) Servicing the tail is way easier. Remove the tail fin, unbolt the left side. The idler pulley stays in place. The whole tail shaft assembly can stay in place! Just loop the belt under the idler, around the pulley, reinstall 5 bolts (including the tail fin) and you're on your way. A caveat, I had to ditch my green tail fin, looks like you have to run the lynx fins, but it comes with one, no biggy.

3) Tail blade tension is way easier to set. With plastic grips my options were either no bolt in the grip, or "no way in hell those blades are moving ever." This caused me two issues. Vibes that came and went depending on tail blade position. I don't think they ever fully straighted out in flight. And two...see attached picture. Now I can adjust tension so the blades can fold. Vbar vibe analysis indicates very low vibes at the tail rpm, so at the very least, the blades are spinning out into proper alignment.

Oopsie:

kyle down at Rotary wing RC save my day, he was able to solder my caps back on my YGE 40A!

I shot a few videos this morning, till I got to brave and put her in inverted, I was trying to trim the grass...

This flight was the first of the morning, did some nice low piro flips at the end!

Hey really great flying there. I love that more majestic 3D stuff you're doing than the smack-3D stuff that is fun but also a bit weird for me
