I am a fairly new Logo owner, has been lfying the 500 for about a month, and i have an issue with the belt keep coming loose.

I am on my 3rd belt now, just changed to the 3rd one this weekend, it was fine for about 10 flights than it started coming loose again.

I've noticed it and I've just re tightened everything right before I started to fly so I am really in the woods here about why is this keep happening

I was able to save last time the belt flipped over, this time I wasn't so lucky, the heli tumbled over, since the skid got stuck in the grass upon landing causing all kind of damage

Can anyone give me advise what to do with this issue, as I couldn't find any topics with this problem, so it looks like it's not a common thing on these helis.

Thanks in advance!

Fly it like you stole it!!!

Either the boom is sliding in its clamp or possibly you have the belt too tight to start off with and it is stretching.

For the time the model has been available if the boom does slip in its clamp there should be alot of posts on the forums about how to fix it.

Right side of frame look inside you'll see two small holes. Set your desired tension and put two grub screws in those holes that will in effect sort of pin the boom from moving.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I did pin the boom once but it kept streching... I will do it with the new boom again anyway.

Is that carbon tail upgrade helps anything which is available at ReadyHeli?
