Hi. Just recently bought a fury 60 CCPM. I have checked it all over and replaced a few parts. One thing bothers me - There appears to be too much movement in the head. When you hold tohe blade grips you can move them up and down quite a bit and I am sure this will lead to an in flight boom strike.

My Raptor 50 has no play at all.

I have taken a blade grip off and all looks OK. Any ideas. Is it normally like this?.

Regards

Mick

Add shims to either side to make the damping as stiff as you would like. You can alos replace the o-rings with different durometer value ones (stiffer/softer).

Many of the Fury 60 kits use a different damping system than that of the 90 size Extreme machines. I will bet your feathering spindle does not have any cir clips to preload the damping. If this is the case THROW IT IN THE BIN!!, as it is pants! Get a Fury Extreme head damping upgrade kit as this will allow you to preload the head damping instead of tighting up on the blade grips. This will leave the head as stiff as a board (if that is what you desire) The old Fury 60 method is truly aweful and will almost certainly permit boom strikes. Been there done that...................................!

Hey,

You may find that after a while that with the current head damping set-up that the recess cups for the damper 'O'Rings will elongate to like an Egg shape.

you could replace with the harder 90 Duro dampers but a much bette way is to replace the whole feathering shaft with the Clipped Head Axle Conversion Kit from the Extreme.

The part number for the Clipped Head Axle Kit is:#120-70

I would also get a new set of dampers at:0844-2 / 0844-4 / 0844-6 = Depending which durometer of hardness you want.

Thanks for all your support guys. I have stripped the head totally and found some parts missing. Will speak with my local MA dealers tomorrow and sort it out.

Missing parts fitted. My head is now really stiff - and the helicopter should also fly properly !
