    Suspension weights, based on info from CubCrafters and TacAero:
    Bungees -- baseline
    Acme and AOSS -- + 5.6Lb
    TK1 -- + 13.6Lb

    Installed my Black Ops, Gen 3 about two weeks ago and put about 4 hours on them. The are definitely a nice improvement over my AOSS. No first bounce like you can get with the AOSS and I can definitely feel a softer ride when landing and traversing over 6 - 10" rocks. I built covers for them because I was bored and waiting for flyable weather here in the NWAttachment 7362.

    I have a pair of AOSS for sale, contact me if interested.

    Good to see the reports like this one and Bobís on the Berringer gear. Iíve been satisfied with my AOSS gear but newer technology is what drives improvements in performance.

    I am thinking that with my 31s and 6 pounds of air pressure the benefits of either wouldnít be as noticeable. But Iíd like to be proven otherwise. 😀

    I've had the pleasure of running 31's with 6psi on both the FX2 and FX3 and both running AOSS and Acme's In both airframes I can tell you there is a huge difference between the AOSS and the Acme's especially in the Gen 3's on the FX3. I have the Gen 2's on my FX2 and they are great but the Gen 3's are next level even above that and I thought the Gen 2's where a complete level above the AOSS when I first flew them on my FX2

    I agree Mike, I've also been running 31's with 4-6 lbs on both AOSS and Gen 3"s and there is a difference and when you combine it with the T3 tailwheel everything softens. It's amazing how much shock comes thru the airframe from the tailwheel.

    Different attitudes, I'm colorblind so black & white ( snow ) suits me fine. He thinks on a more complex platform. He wants color ( green ) all the time. Sun is overrated, it just gets in your eyes while flying. Waldo needs sun to justify wearing those cool dude sunglasses all the time.

    What number bungees are being tested, and whats the empty weight of the airplane?? Stock bungees-there is no such thing. They need to be matched to the airframe. John your a salesman.
