Does the 550 need one?

Richard, I thought you flew Align for the most part based on were I see the posts. I am glad to see you have come over to the dark side. Lets see some videos of the Logo 550.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

Bored of Aligns offerings at the moment, I only have two Aligns and that's the 800dfc and a 150. I did have a 600sx a couple of years ago and can't remember why I sold it! I think loading the packs was a pain.

Anyway I just wondered why I got an antistatic kit in the 600sx but not the 550sx. Maybe the belt doesnt touch the boom as much being shorter? I'll make one up to be on the safe side.

It should have come with one. Where did you get the kit?

Fast lad performance. It was a combo kit with scorpion motor and the box was sealed.

+1 for YES!

The boom on the 550 is 22mm diameter vs the 25mm one on the 600/690, so I would imagine there is similar contact with the belt.

Three eyelets, a hex bolt for the front boom connection, and a couple feet of wire is all you need. I've made my own, even on my 690sx where it was supplied....I liked my design better.

After flying the 550sx a bit, if you find you want more collective pop/lighter feel, try it as a 550se. Just need a different boom, belt, and control rod (and 600mm blades of course). Will likely need one size smaller pinion as well, depending on how you are running your 550sx.

You can contact them and have one sent out or make one with about .25 cents worth of parts. Connect from the pulley on the tail belt bolt to the boom in the rear. The from the boom to the motor mount on the front. I like to pin the boom and connect the kit in the front (kill tow birds with one stone).....Ron

I've noticed Mikado do an optional antistatic tail pully, could it be that the 550sx v2 are coming with these in the kit?

You still need to ground the case to the boom and the boom to the MM. That does not fix the static problem completely

I hear you on Align stuff. The static kit is needed for sure. Good luck with the build.

Fitted my own grounding wires also sprayed the belt, pulleys and main gear with silicone. Just need to sort the extremely hot esc issue out now!

Scorpion 1100kv and the Talon 90 but I made the mistake in going straight for a 16T pinion and running 2300 rpm. I'm now back to the stock 14T pinion and running 2150 and all is well.

Castle gov. I wish I could run 2300 properly governed but it's too much for the talon 90. I am OK with 2150, the heli was intended to be a practice heli with longer flight time anyway.
