oh that suck real bad. guess i got the wrong advise to threadlock the feather shaft , wouldn't it fly apart during flight? does this only apply to the bcp or even the trex? so you dont threadlock metal to metal parts? or metal to metal parts except parts that is near the bearing. for example the bearings on the main axis , i threadlock the collar thinghy too.

Please comment if my doin is just not a good way to setup a heli.

I don't thread-lock anything on my BCP actually - I thread-lock lots of things on my Hornet like the tail output shaft to the tail box bearing and pitch slider bearings to the pitch slider sleeve and tail grip bolts to hub etc - But not the feathering spindle bolts - Too awkward to try and not get any in the bearings - I get 'em tight and they've never backed out on any of my small helis.

on a trex , i read it should be threadlock on the feathering shaft , so i thought its the same on the bcp.

captain , which part do u think on the bcp i should avoid threadlocking it then so i will not stumble on a problem again. where else should actually be threadlock on a bcp? or a mini heli?

and should i apply the same practise on my other mini size helis like trex etc?

thanks a lot

Like I said I don't thread-lock anything on my BCP - I rebuild mine too often to bother with the stuff so everything checked over often anyways -

If you wanna use thread-lock thats fine - Just be careful with it around bearings etc is all.

A Trex I'd likely thread-lock the spindle bolts as it would be spinning bigger heavier blades at faster speeds and wouldn't be pretty to throw a blade grip.

thats true. but on the bigger birds do u have to be careful on the bearings too or are they more tolerant to threadlock being there?

If you do need to re-assemble it again , how do u clean off the previous threadlock?

thanks a lot

On the bigger helis the parts are bigger - More room to work with so it's not as delicate of a job to get the stuff where you want it and not where you don't want it - Stronger forces pretty much necessitate thread-lock.

Well like I said I use lots on my other micro - Just the BCP really only has two bolts that happen to be in a tight space inside the blade grips in contact with small bearings - Delicate undertaking to thread-lock those two bolts every time.
