One, what the heck is the part number for the X-Spec blade grips? I've looked on Agusto's site but the pics don't really point to the grips with a number. Two, what's a good way to get the fuel tank out? Do I have to dismantle the frames?

Thanks!

0404552 - Blade grips - There is a box around the blade grips and thrust bearings, they come as a set - the part number points to the box

I'm not sure if the tanks are held in the same but a good crash usualy seems to make it quite easy to remove the tank from my Evo50

Well, I'm trying to to change the fuel tubing and I tell ya. The main tube that goes over that metal part that protrudes from the tank is difficult to say the least with the tank mounted on the heli! hmmm, I'll keep brainstorming.

Hey JitsuGuy:

It may be a bit of extra work, but when I drop my EVO 50 tank to change fuel lines, I pull the skids off (or just remove the rear screws to loosen the rear of the frames) and spread the rear frame halves slightly and it just slides out. Whole operation takes only about 3-4 minutes. Of course, if you're looking for a quicker way w/o removing or loosening the skids, I don't have that answer.

Good Luck!!

You can pull it out, just be careful so you dont break the mounting rubbers. One thing that makes it easier is to loosen the frame bolts around the tank and also the ones for the cross member below it.

It should make it possible to slightly 'bend' apart the frames to get the tank out and back in again.

Dont rush, and Im sure it´ll work just fine. Using a small screwdriver is great to push the tank dampers back in place once you put the tank back in.

Good Luck

if you have a power screwdriver, it's really a lot
easier to lay the machine down on its exhaust
side and remove the lower frame. the Boom
support screws and approx 10 more and the
engine mount screws. You're done and you
dont rip the little rubber mount things.

Try this

To remove the tank, remove one of the L angles and loosen the landing gear bolts on one side that are attached to the landing gear. Next loosen the back frame bolts and pull the frames apart a little bit and the tank will fall out. With the L angle off the frame, it moves pretty easy.

I know it is not the easiest thing in the world to do, but this is the fastest way I have been able to do it without disturbing the frame alignment.

Z's way would work as well. Power driver is key!
