V2 Blade Grips For 470LT

I wonder what's up with this ? Inboard thrust bearing possibly ? Too bad they didn't add some bolt on red replaceable pitch arms instead of the solid one piece unit.

Well the arms are longer. So more resolution/servo movement. Basicly it will be little bit less sensitive. But also harder on the servos.

Easier on the servos you mean?

60% of the time, it works every time!

Less force but more required travel.

harder on the servos in a crash. Easier to strip them.

Other way around. The further the ball joint is from the pivot point the less force you will be able to exert on that ball joint given the same pivoting force.

Hi folks, back to the 2.5mm shaft upgrade kit I had that was causing the main gear to wobble. I got the replacement kit and it is much better but still not perfect. When installed and the main shaft shimmed to just a tick of play and the bottom collar on and the bolt pushed through and partially threaded all is fine and things turn freely. As soon as the bolt head touches the collar the head starts to turn tight and every 360' a tighter spot. Tightening the bolt further makes this worse. Removing the motor all spins fine so it seems that it has to do with the AR area only.

I loctited the screw and tightened it just past where the bolt head contacted the collar and took it for three flights and It does not seem to vibrate like a bent main shaft and the bolt has not come out. I would feel alot better about being able to snug it up a bit. (FYI for those of you who have not installed this kit the bottom bolt does not have a lock nut, the collar is threaded)

Ideas anyone ??

I have had a problem with older 450's when tightening that bolt. I have take to not over tightening it and basically just tighten until slightly snug. I do this on all of my machines so the plastic of the gear doesn't misshapen.

Yeah, familiar with that since I have 3 450 Pro's for more than 6 years.The updated gear with the metal insert was better but all you need to do on that is just get the nylock seated, barely snug. This is not the same deal as compressing the plastic AR / tail drive gear. The 470 is all metal down there and I don't even get the screw past where the bolt head seats on the collar before I notice the binding that gets worse every 360'. The tighter I get it the worse it is and there is really nothing to compress down there. Actually I am applying less torque that in takes to just turn a screw into the nylon section of a well used nylock. Quite puzzling Since one kit was better than the other I suspect MFG issues. I hate to ask Heli Direct for another RMA. Thinking of buying another inner AR hub since it may come from a different batch or just stay with the OEM 2mm kit which works smooth as silk.

Still fishing for ideas.

I never got 2.5 mm hub becuase i have too many parts for orignal. But now that my 470L TT is in mail I will see if there is play on 2.5.

Most parts are out, but not sure if you need new frames. I will know this weekend once I start building it.

Yes the main frames are different , but have the same hole pattern as the belt version. So you actual can dremel the belt frames to match TT version. Well speak of the devil

H47T029XXW $52.99
470LT Torque Drive Upgrade Set

http://shop.align.com.tw/product_in...337&language=en

Here is my quick list of pros,Oddee and cons

Pros:
1) Well its TT
2) no slop on the tail crown gears
3) Canopy fits even better the belt version
4) back boom cross brace just like in 450L version
5) New grips are noticeably different.
6) Kits comes with turnbucles

Oddee:
1) shorter blade holder
2) Tails blades are a lot shorter (very odd)
3) autorotation gear is smaller then any 450 size by Align
4) Because rear TT transition gear has a lager gear to make up for the smaller autorotation gear, the bevel gear seams tiny. I dothink it might be the same size as on the tail shaft, but just appears smaller.
Cons:
1) plastic 3rd bearing (why)
2) plastic rear fin (why)
3) plastic tail lock pin (why)

And I will be selling my 470LM version.

Thx for that info Knight! I think I will stay with my belt drive for now, but I'm thinking of going to the new V2 blade holders.

My 450 Pro's are TT. Funny, I bought the 470LM for the belt tail. I call that an upgrade.
