This is an optional Lynx Heli 1.5mm Carbon Fiber Vertical Tail Fin, and is intended for use with the Align T-Rex 500 and MS Heli Protos 500 helicopters. Anyone can make parts - Lynx Heli Innovations offers solutions that work! Using specialized airflow based software, Lynx Heli has tested and determined that the airflow efficiency of a standard, stock fin could be greatly improved with this design, providing not only a better looking tail fin design, but a design that functions very well within the realm of RC helicopter flight with improved tail rotor efficiency. For an excellent mix of aesthetics & proven design concepts, this high performance fin will add that extra edge your helicopter needs to perform at its absolute best, allowing 3D flight that only knows one limit – yours.
- Tail fin surface is smaller compared to the vertical fin shapes of other models, providing less air drag, reduced airflow turbulence, and improved tail rotor efficiency & performance.
- Tail fin position is advanced in the frame direction, allowing a larger area of air flow, while reducing vibration resonance effects.
- Field tests & software simulations confirm that the greater airflow efficiency resulted in a net decrease of 5% gyro gain without compromising tail holding authority during aggressive 3D flight.
- With 500 class helicopters, the airflow increases allowed reductions of tail rotor gain all the way to 5% before tail rotor holding ability showed signs of change.
