Hey Guys/Girls

I was hauling my Rappy .70 around yesterday with out any problems but at the end of the tank I landed and cut the throttle. With the engine off I heard a sound comming from the main gear area.

sounded like an alignment problem but didn't really think this could be adjusted anyway. it was making the noise as the blade with tracking tape past the tail and then stopped until it went over the same spot again ( Thats why I think it would be the main gear)

I haven't pulled it apart yet as xmas is keeping me busy but wouldn't mind some advice if this is happend to them or if you could think what else it could be

Safe flying other Xmas Dudes

Check your main gear and the heli sides for dust/plastic shavings.. Something could be rubbing..

Is the strange noise a click or what??

Blue Skies,There's nothing wrong with a Raptor 60!!

It's Kinda like a rubbing sound but it's hard to describe. sounds rough ...yeah I would say a clicking of sorts but not a tic tic but more a raa raa he he.
does sound like an alighnment problem ...almost like 5 teeth on the main gear isin't connecting properly to the tail drive. sorry to be so vauge.


Just had a look On the white tail gear that meshs with the red drive gear. the White is stained with red it seems doesint look like dust however.
I have noticed a tendancy to skip a tooth or two in a high speed turn too I may just have to rip it apart and have a look
