For all of you that have been helping me with the "clicking" problem that was stuttering my tail thanks! Late in the afternoon I headed out to Nathans to go fly and had recently replaced the tail boom and mounted the tail servo to the rear....well...I had been having problems getting her to be stable and not wobble when ole Nathan drove up and jumped right in to help!!
in short...we sat til dark taking the whole heli apart, motor and all looking for the "clicking" bandit that eluded the both of us!!!! Main gear? nope....tail gear? nope....belt? nope....boom? nope...motor? ahh lets pull it.... he says!
did I mention it was dark and the whole heli is apart? LOL!!!
what we or "he" found....
Loose fan shroud...about 1/8 to 3/16 of play...
slightly loose clutch......
"not good" is a famous quote of his, if ya know him!! LOL
so we tighten her up.....tighten up all linkages....and put her back together....wait! its dark, and well....YOU know we have to test fly her!!!
hey...lets pull the cars up!!! and yep! you guessed it...headlight test flight!!
talk about a different heli! man she ran smooth, spooled up smooth and ran like a champ!!!
finally get to fly her!! been trouble shooting her for 3 days! in short...what a guy. Taking his time to help a newbie and show him the ropes of trouble shooting.....man...you just cant buy that kind of dedication!! You know these guys really like what they do and are truely dedicated!!! I have the fortunate ability to walk in the shop and buy, but alot of you are call in guys.......and I gotta say, if you want serious dedication to customers, these are your guys....
I cant say thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!
