AM I THE ONLY PERSON WHO IS HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THE BELT THROUGH THE BOOM????

It's freaking impossible! I have tried every single trick and its is not going to go through! Why are the people who packed it so stupid??? It's like they purposely tried to make sure that there would be bends in the belt so you can't get it through! SOMEONE HELP~!

Grab a piece of string, and tie one end of it to the belt.

Tie a weight to the other end small enough to pass through the boom, pull the string through until you can get a hand on the belt, remove the string, and thank me later.

Thats how I do all my helis.

Yup, long piece of string through the boom, tied to the belt, pulls right on through.

Good job Mag.

Make sure that tail works smoothly.

You'll be surprised how well it flies.

To me, the belt goes thru the 250 boom much easier than the 500. I just pushed it through with the antenna support tube included with the kit. Took about 10 seconds.

That's what I've done. No problems.

I just pushed mine through with the tail rod. Took about 5 seconds flat.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
