Can anyone give me a little help on a problem that I've
come across during assembly of my new Airskipper 50
helicopter.

I've followed the instructions very carefully but I've found
that I've got a 3mm-5mm play on the main shaft which allows
the main gear drive to move slightly up and down and rub on
the frame. A small spacer ring would completely cure the problem,
if fitted between the top of the main gear and underside of the centre bearing, to stop any vertical free movement.

Has anyone come across this, or have I done something wrong ?
The Japanese manual does'nt show a spacer.

HELP !

Thanks

Garry.

Gary,

I've grabbed the Airskipper 30 manual of MacGregors website which is in English.. and the 30 and 50 are almost identical.

On page 10 there is mention of a spacer on the top of the auto unit step 1-3.. could this be what you're missing?

Cheers

Mark

Mark, as well as the other gents, hit the nail on the head....should have a spacer on top of the auto-rotation clutch.
