Hey guys I have few questions I purchased a eflite blade sr and there are a few things wrong with it... the tail is slightly bent and the stabilizer is broke.... and there is a plastic like piece that goes between the blades and the black gyro I think its called that helps it fly/stabilize.... its like a small shaft with a little circle on the end of it.... I don't know what the part is called and I wont to replace them. but I don't want to purchase the wrong parts if anyone could help I beginner eager to learn id really appreciate it.....

Welcome to RunRyder.
Tail being bent, may not be a big problem because it is direct drive. The stabilizer should not be a major problem either. Not sure what the other part is that you are talking about.
Maybe a picture would help.

Info...
I agree, pics would be a big help!!
Also, did you get a manual with your heli? If not you should order one..
This would give you an exploded view of the heli, which in turn would help you resolve a lot of problems on your own...and it will make it easier for you to identify a problem here on rr so it would be easier for us to help you.

One other thing....WELCOME TO A FANTASTIC HOBBY that you and your son csn enjoy and learn together...

As stated before the bent tail boom and broked stabilizer fin shouldn't be an issue. The other part sounds like a control rod. On the head itself there is only 2 different ones one is adjustable is not. The part on the left part number is EFLH1151 and is called pitch control link set. The part on the right is part number EFLH1172 and is called bell mixer arm and pushrod set. I also would like to welcome you to this great hobby and Runryder. There is lots of good information here and plenty of help. Hope this helps. Chuck

thanks so much guy I appreciate it and it was the pitch control link set I got it replaced.... I bought the sr because the hobby shop down the road has all the replacement parts on hand I know I should have went with something a lot more unsophisticated but I really do enjoy the challenges of taking bigger steps.... time and practice and money.....

Had To Read It Twice Too!!!
bully234,

I had to read wrongler's post two times just to see what he was talking about.. that is why I posted my "funny" under his...he is one of the good guys on here.. promise...
The other is on my ignore list, so I have no idea ,nor care to, know what he posted... but I can imagine it was something negative.. that is how he became one of the lucky members to make it onto my ignore list... no time for negative..
Glad to hear you got your heli going again... and hey, we all started somewhere and if you and your son are doing it together and having fun, your doing it right... the bottom line is have fun!!!!

+1
wrongler is definitely one of the good guys, very knowledgeable and always willing to help.

We all have to start somewhere and learn from experience what is good and bad for each of us.

Welcome to the hobby and runryder!

Another big +1 for wrongler. He is very knowledgeable, helpful, and quite often very funny.

Great to see a father and son getting started in this awesome hobby.

+100 for Wrongler. He is one of the good guys, he just doesn't get out of the "home" much and Jerry's Kids don't want him any longer since he became 18!!!

The blade nano or blade mcpx are both great alternatives. But if you are looking for something less complex and much easier I suggest the blade coaxial CX2! That was my first heli!

Also, look for other local heli pilots. I know most guys would be more than happy to buddy box with you and your SR

Don't get frustrated. The learning curve is steep if you don't have an instructor. Its one thing to learn from trial and error, or by trying to figure it out...its another to spend an hour or so with another heli pilot in your area. Find your local club and reach out to them. I guarantee you someone will take you and your son under their wing and help you out. Buddy boxing is the quickest, safest, and cheapest (read...not crashing) way to learn!!!
