I can't stand the grommets that are cut by the sharp fiberglass canopy hole edges and just the normal fight with them. I guess the RCBooya mounts have spoiled me.

The setup that you are using Velocity does look simple and clean.

Got my new canopy today from Fusuno. Awesome finish as always from them. I needed something more visible from the front than the dark blue Align canopy. This ought to do it.

I've been holding off flying my 470 waiting on the new 2.5mm main shaft upgrades.... I hope Align gets these parts ready soon!

You mentioned holding off on flying your 470l. Have you had or heard of breakage issues of the bolt ?

I haven't seen or heard any, but since they are changing the size I would bet they have an issue. IMHO when I first saw the small size of this screw, I was skeptical that it was strong enough. But I have been flying mostly 600 and 700's so lots of sizes look small.

Thanks. It is the same size as my 3S 450 Pro which kinda surprised me. Probably worth the insurance.

Take a look at the blade root of my Trex 500. I found this while doing routine maintenance. If a 500 can have this type of damage around the blade mounting hole, I bet there is a good load on the bottom main shaft bolt too..

I did get the new 2.5 parts installed and have put a few flights on the 470. I am still breaking the batteries in and tweaking my Vbar Neo setup but overall this thing flys great! I like the feel of this helicopter which is definitely bigger than the 450's. It is very close to my 8s 500. Lots of power and agility but still stable.

I see the tail gear ratio is almost the same. 3.73 changing to 3.71.

NQNA,

When you installed the 2.5mm shaft upgrade kit did you have run out in possibly the hub or shaft causing a wobble in the main gear when spinning the head and a bind once every rotation. The head is very hard to turn with everything buttoned up and the shaft end play shimmed correctly.

Ideas ?

VelocityRC,
I have no play or wobble after the installation. I did need to change the main shaft spacer to remove vertical play.

Thanks, I had to re-shim too. i guess I'll seek a RMA since re-installing the original shaft, hub and collar, all is back to normal. I suspect the inner AR bearing sleeve is not pressed in straight with the hub.
