Is there a problem with the clutches on helicopters running the .91 engines?

Has the clutch been redesigned? Is it available from Miniature Aircraft?

Well

Usually there is not an issue with the standard clutches on the these models unless they are subjected to extreme loading such as really hard 3D. Miniature has designed a larger clutch and clutch bell to give more surface area to the clutch for these uses and it is available now through Miniature.

Umm

How about bailing out of an auto by going back into idle up and applying 6 to 8 degrees of pitch suddenly?

Just received from MinAir the new larger clutches and clutch bells and they are HUGE. It's a 19mm increase in circumference. Now all I need to due is cut 2mm away from the plates on each side so the bell doesn’t rub.

Complete the auto! Bailing out of an auto is about the same as popping the clutch on a 350HP sports car at 6000 RPM and wondering if there is a problem with the clutch slipping! That's pretty tough use, so as Chuckie said, go to the new bigger clutches! They are bigger and better, and will handle the loading of the newer 91's much better!!
