actually you can check that grub screw without even taking anything apart. the end of the shaft is exposed, sticking out of the bearing on the side of the gear box. you can use one of your allen wrenches to see if its tight, or if there even is one (rotormonkey).

That would only look after the pin for the gear that is attached to the output shaft.

One would have to take the 5 minutes to open the gearbox, check the one on the input shaft, and re-assemble the tail gearbox to insure the one on the inside is secure.

Your illustration from the Sport manual should give all a clear indication of how it works.

Other than those items in the crash kit, what are the common parts to replace in light to medium crashes?

Input gear pin

I heard of a tail locking up in flight and decided to check mine out. Mine was also loose and the pin just slid right out. I bought this second hand and yhadn't checked that grub screw. It had been locktighted, but I don't believe it was all the way snugged down. She is tight now. I had been flying for at least 20+ flights like this.

test video - well, she's back

my raven is finally almost back to normal after my crash. i've been having a string of bad luck lately. last week, my engine fried and i had to replace the piston.

today i got a chance to testfly and tune the engine with the help of some folks at bayside. tried to take some video on my cell phone but it turned out terrible but here it is anyway - my first youtube video. as soon as i started the video, the pilot(craig oku of all people!) landed so i barely got any footage. goes without saying my raven did things it didn't do before or may never do again. LOL.

Watch at YouTube
