Hi there AL,

Yes, the problem with the R50 is the clutch Pinion,you need to use red locktite on the race of the pinion bearing when you install it,i went thru 2 of them and it sounds like a box of nails and other lock ups,make sure you do not get the locktite on the bearing,what happens is the pinion slips under load on the race of the pinion bearing if it is not a tight fit,pull the engine and pull out the clutch and pinion, you will see the wear on the clutch pinion,i keep a clutch and new pinion on hand for these problems if they occur at the field,Al, i can get out on sunday this week,i wont be working any more sundays,(just sat's),One other thing if it is not the pinion, it would be the Auto Hub, the bearings in the hub get all gummed up/flattened and if you tighten up the bolt at the bottom of the main gear too tight it deforms the inner bearings and causes these flats which in turn cause's the bearing to fail, use tranny fluid and soak it overnight and it should be ok,but i found that is only lasts for 3-5 flights,just replace it,steve ive been thru all the probs with the 50 and once ya get it right,it will last a long time.

Sunday!
I'll faint if you actually show. I flew yesterday for 2 hours. I hit it just right, Sunshine and no wind. Then at 2:30 overcast and very windy. I flew the Gee Bee for a couple of flights then the R-90 for four. Does this mean your going to fly the Tiger Sunday?

jack thanks for the info i think that is where the problem must be because it only does it when trying to rev the engine fast when the blades have not spun up yet. if you slowly spin up the blades it works fine

well i took the main gear out and the bearing looks good, it might be a little dry so i lubed it with TRI Flow. so i lubed the 2 bearings in the frame and put it back together, i am pretty sure that the belt was hitting itself. i tightened the belt and put the heli outside for a little while and i was surprised how much the belt loosens up when it is 30 degrees out.

does anyone have skies on there planes for tomorrow? do any of you guys put the helis away for the winter and do you do anything to store the engine for a few months. i am still hoping to get a couple flights in before it gets too cold. and is there a temp that is too cold for the heli to fly?

A few of us were out today. Windy as hell and cold as a witch's... (well you know). Cold I can deal with. It's the wind that makes things unbearable.

I'm going to fly as much as possible this winter but day's like today just hurt! I'm stuck to flying only on weekends with the darkness after work. Here's to hope that we'll have a bunch of nice weekends

There were two guys with Raptors and me with my Hirobos. Guess which one didn't have to break out any tools?

winter flying

Steve, the only limiting factor for winter flying that slows me down is the "frozen fingers" factor. A bunch of us (well, at least me and AL) have those transmitter gloves, but I for one have yet to get much use out of it. I put skis on the plank I'm going to fly. The helis don't need skis.

I'm also stuck with weekends only because it's dark when I get done with work, but come the long days I'm sure I'll be out after work weekdays. If you're going to hang up a motor for some time without use, it can't hurt to lube it up, but I for one don't bother. They seem greasy enough as they come home from the field!!!

Winter Flyin'

I was never a big fan of cold weather, but if you get a day when the temp is between 35 and 40 deg with no wind, it makes for a great day of flying. On the other hand when it is below 35 degrees with a high pressure system clearing the skies, it makes your aircraft easy to follow in the sky plus it is great for taking pictures due to the color/light saturation.

I had fun flying in the snow. Manzer once sugested taking the wings of and just racing the planks around on only the skis. It is all fun until your fingers freeze. But that is whay god invented hot coffee!

I still have not been flying. The weather is great, but I have no buddies like I had in NY. In time next spring I'll be out flying. Maybe I'll meet with you fellas at the Florida Jets. I was thinking of doing the RV rental thing for the week or weekend at Florida Jets so I could enjoy with out driving in everyday. It's only 45 minute from my housh, but there must be some good stories floating around after the crowd leaves. I've only been once, but I was hooked after going the first time. I would still wait until tubine prices come down. The "grass take-off ARF's" for turbine trainers are reasonable at this time.

I can put skis on a cub, and take the wheels off the seamaster for the snow, but I have other stuff to keep me busy this weekend.
