My Raptor 90 went on its maiden flight today and oh boy what a great machine. I had a Voyager 50 before the Raptor but there are NO comparison. I LOVE the BIG Rappy.

ONE PROBLEM.... One of my rappy tail boom support rods broke of under the horizontal fin. Its been fixed to the horizontal plastic bracket with a self tap screw. The two screws became so hot that the one plastic bracket broke off. All i can think of was that there was a lot of tension on the screws holding the tail but not sure why..

Any idea why it happened?

Well in Las Vegas it gets pretty hot also 105 to 115. Never seen a tail boom support break one of the plastic ends. I have seen the alum ends break from a vibration. We have been running the boom support bridges which helped this problem.

High Freq.

Alan,

I agree. I would bet that he has High Freq. Vibes going on.

Is your fuel foaming as well?

When hovering the tail is dead still. The heli is very stable. How can i tell if there is any vibrations or where can i look for the problem? This is my first experience with a shaft driven tail.
