Default Dampers

Are there any alternative dampers for the Mini Protos that are harder than the stock ones?

I have not come across any other than the stock dampers.

But I really don't see the need in harder dampening for the MiniP.
Whether I smack mine (4s stretch) hard on the deck or go big and smooth, I never saw any issues with the dampening trough pretty much any headspeed range.
And they also don't seem to wear out too fast either.

Angelos and one of his test pilots seem to think so. No harm in trying

Ya I read it and and seems that if your dampers have been on there for a while it is suggested to change them. You could alwasys add an extra shim washer behind the damper to firm it up more. I use 2 behind the dampers on each side of my low fbl head. You put to many in and the grips will get real notchy. Lynx heli may come out with dampers eventualy but I absolutely do not see a problem at all. if you have crashed and bungged up a spindle or your dampers have a lot of flights on them then change em!

This model has never been crashed. I've not been counting but my guess is its had about 100 flights. I'm going to try a new set of stock MSH dampers and if that doesn't work I will try shimming them.
