Hey friends . Does Anyone have some of these plastic boom clamps laying around. You see I need another one, so I can fit my gyro senser to the heli's boom..

Thanks..

no, why can't you order another boom strap?

more importantly, can you mount a gyro to a boom.

I'll assume your mounting the boom strap close to the boom case...

I didn't order it. It was from a old heli (can't remember though). My heli has no room on the frames to mount the senser ( It's a Futaba GY501). so it has to go on the boom (close to the frame). Another clamp will do it. My other clamp is for the spartan rc ap2000i senser. That I'm fitting..

most booms for 550 class and up are the same diameter, so most boom straps - from any MFG should work, just keep the sensor as close to the heli as possible, the further out from the main mast you go might product undesirable affects.

good luck!

you could adapt xcell parts as they are very similar to schluter (same boom diameter etc)

That is a Miniature Torgue tube drive assy.

We used to use the ball ends on Schluter machines back in the day. I did lots of them back then.

TMoore. I ordered the x-cell boom (31.1 inches) "0556-1" and the Torque tube "0867-9" is that correct???. Though the orginal boom on the Schluter Superior is shorter (about 29 inches long)..

Can't help you with those part numbers as I always made mine from the socket ends and tube ends. Everything else was custom. Should work though, the only thing is that the t/r pushrod will have to be a bit longer.

I've fitted the torque tube. but I had to remove both white things, cos the shaft that it was fitted to was too short so I drove the pin out and (using grub screws) fitted it to the Superior shafts.. Now that the boom is longer (1.5 inches). Should I use the 640mm blades that I have or go with longer ones??
