I have been flying only raptors up until now, I just finished building my Evo 50. I have a question. I only have a starting wand WITHOUT a one way bearing becuase the raptor clutch has it in it. But the Evo 50 doesn't. I will get a start shaft with onway. BUT I want to fly the evo tommorow and will not beable to get one by then. Will I be able to start the EVO with the wand without the one way bearing???? What kind of problems will I have? Should I even try?
Thanks!
Bob

I dont think it would hurt anything but it might kill the motor because of the drag of turning the starter. Id bump up the idle a little more and just bump it and get the starter out of the hole.

No one way bearing in starter.

You will have to be very careful, Remember the wand will be spinning quite fast. It will probably try to fly out of the starter. I would tape it in place. Better still borrow someone elses till you can get your own. I found that a wobbly wand really is a problem and takes your concentration from a running motor. You don't want to be worrying about that especially with a new heli on it's first run.

Good luck.

Why fly the rest when you can fly the best. What are the best these days anyway ?

More often than not when you pull the starter wand out it tries to flick itself out of the cup and into your new head, with some force.

Maybe with two pairs of hands you will be ok.

I've been doing that for a while. Just get a friend to hold the head while you hold the starter in one hand and the other hand can support the wand. But you have to pull the wand out as soon as it fires.
For the long term though get another wand.

sounds risky to me. Just hope it starts at a low idle
