I have a Blade 400 3D , and I want to give it an overhall. Could someone tell me where the plug is to change the oil, and where are all the grease fittings,The water coolant level is fine,and I cant seem to find the spark plugs.
I looked in the book that came with it.And cant find nothing about the oil.
tks

Run the engine about 5-7 minutes hard 3D, land let it idel, and remove the little plug inside the round hot thing, watch out it might pop, and make alot of noise, then stick your finger in to check oil temp, and oil level.

And do NOT forget the blinker fluid. I did that once and it never flew right after that....

I might not be able to fly well, but I can crash with the best of them.

Whilst getting the engine hot enough for a fluid check, save a bit of time by also having the heli priouette at maximum rate for the entire 5 minute warm up flight. This ensures that any tail boom oil (2/300 viscosity rated, fully synthetic of course!) reaches the extremities of the boom. Boom seizure is rare but can and does happen.

Another important maintenance reminder is to be very careful when inspecting the synergised mesh refractor. Those tricky little buggers have been known to launch themselves across the flying field as soon as you look at them

And if the nibbling pin jumps off the wobbling shaft watch out.
Also be aware of the engines with the sour wood crankshaft as they break easy if the oil gets to low.
