I mentioned somewhere in a previous posting that I thought I was getting a strange noise coming from the `Jewel` charging motor as fitted to my Spectra G.

It sound like a rubbing noise that is there when the engine is idling and can I think be heard well throttling up ready for take off.

Basically I still think its coming from the top mounted AXI motor and on checking the top can seems to be able to be moved from side to side as if the top bearing has gone.

If it is this can the motor be repaired or is it just a matter of getting a new one.

I will confirm if it is this later by removing the CF mount and motor and seeing what the heli sounds like running.

Axi motors come apart quite well..if memory serves you access a couple of grub screws from the side.

So long as the case isnlt too distorted and the magnets haven;t come unstuck then you can probably fix it..otherwise really search google for prices..I've managed to trash a couple and find older priced replacements (or mis-priced but they still sold them to me)..

Definitely the motor causing the noise.

Basically the thing just fell to pieces on me.

The main shaft moves up and down and just rotates with out actually turning anything else with it.

Been rubbing at a certain point on the magnets by the looks of things.

Now this motor has not really done very many hours in the air.

Are these AXI motors supposed to be of a good quality?

Not that good if you ask me.

AXI motors are the best quality

Sounds to me like a vibration problem being transfered into the motor. That would cause the issues you describe. I have non-axi motors functioning as generators on my helis that have run for Many many hours in my AP ships with no wear whatsoever. You don't get much better quality that AXI.

Right could be

Did have running problems with the motor for a while.

Sorted now but looks like that may be it.

Just got to find a good priced replacment now then.

Thanks Raja, Is it fully repairable then even though the two outer wires are chopped short and the centre one has gone right inside the motor case and the main shaft is loose up and down and just rotates with out turning anything?

As well as the sideways play in the top can.

Cheapest in the UK for a AXI replacement looks to be £48.00 plus shipping.

As pgk mentioned to me there are probably klones out there that work as well.

My Spectra is grounded at the moment until this is sorted so I`d better decided what to do I think.
