when my freya sst-eagle winds down i can here a noise which sounds like the belt hitting the tail boom. have set belt tension with some movement, but both sides can't touch. approx 5-6 mm gap when pushed together. should i tighten belt some more? i don't fly 3-d yet. so only using heli for basic manouvers. any input would be gratefully appreciated.
thanks in advance
jeff

Hi

Well all I can say is that with my Evo I also hear the belt sometimes slapping on the tailtube.But my Rex does the same so I just woulden t bother. All you could check is if the belt is not double twisted.

Proberly so isn't your boom sitting straight.
There is some up and down play in the tailboom clamps, check so that the tailboom doesen't dip down when you tighten the four bolts holding the clamps/boom.

thanks for the input so far guys.
will check tailboom to ensure is straight. i have fitted a new tailboom and belt, along with shaft etc. had a slight mishap... a great heli, but the spares are not cheap here in the UK. i am thinking of shipping a load from the US or far east by snail post.

If you are talking about a ticking sound,
it's the front gear that the tail belt runs around,
you will find it has a very small amount of play
and is pivoting forward and back on the split pin that holds it in
it's rare but does happen
Some people glue the gear to the shaft
