This is an optional Lynx Heli Blade 550 X Red Aluminum Canopy Post Thumb System. The Lynx system is composed by an aluminum rod to install in the frame and a thumbs screw to install in the canopy made by two materials, SST screw and Aluminum Thumb nut.
Intensive testing and experience determined this system to be the best compromise between weight and durability. During the design and test Lynx discovered a binding between the canopy and the two sided servo linkage ball threads. This situation was fixed after making the aluminum rod a little longer, without transforming the original canopy design and shape.
Lynx Heli supplies special rubber grommet to replace the standard one, Lynx grommets are harder to last longer without cutting or breaking down so easy.
- Canopy Support and Thumbs screw designed with easy operation: easy centering and screwing
- Thumbs Screw clamp on the grommet avoiding parts lost
- Bi-material Thumbs screw for the best compromise of Lightweight and durability, avoiding wear friction issue of normal Aluminum / Aluminum canopy post design
- Fast thread features will reduce the number of revolution to lock / unlock the canopy compare normal metric thread
- Special military style thumbs screw assures the ultimate grip. Will provide perfect lock and unlock operation during situations when hands are covered with dirt and oil
- Resized design to avoid canopy / servo linkage binding
