But, my rappy clutch died. I don't know how or why but i remember one day that the clutch was really dragging when the engine was running. Since i had had 5 flight, i was not very dissapointed and went home. I kinda knew that this would happen but i went to fly the next day and managed to use half a tank doing some FFF and attempting some stall turns . I had to take my rappy apart because i could not get the start shaft out and now i have to get the liner and clutch. Any of you relate to this?

Been there....but I didnt have to remove the start shaft. With a little work, you should be able to remove the bell by unscrewing it from the gear. I did a field repair on mine (with the help of a couple other guys). I had heard about the clutch problems and carried a spare clutch and a spare pre-lined bell with me to the field. Sure enough, one day it happened. It took about a half hour to switch the parts out, but it was fine ever since.

I'm glad it went well for you. I didn't really mind splitting the frames, as it was fun. I did not put my start coupler on right so that is why i had to split the frames. After some force and sanding i managed to get the bell and bearings off.

Clutch Repair
Yup, been there
I don't know for sure but I think most R30 flyer with a few flights on their R30' have replaced the clutch For me flight 20 and flight 110
I also split the frame to remove the bell and install a new liner
Also took me about 1/2 hr.
