For all of you that have been helping me with the "clicking" problem that was stuttering my tail thanks! Late in the afternoon I headed out to Nathans to go fly and had recently replaced the tail boom and mounted the tail servo to the rear....well...I had been having problems getting her to be stable and not wobble when ole Nathan drove up and jumped right in to help!!

in short...we sat til dark taking the whole heli apart, motor and all looking for the "clicking" bandit that eluded the both of us!!!! Main gear? nope....tail gear? nope....belt? nope....boom? nope...motor? ahh lets pull it.... he says!

did I mention it was dark and the whole heli is apart? LOL!!!

what we or "he" found....

Loose fan shroud...about 1/8 to 3/16 of play...
slightly loose clutch......

"not good" is a famous quote of his, if ya know him!! LOL

so we tighten her up.....tighten up all linkages....and put her back together....wait! its dark, and well....YOU know we have to test fly her!!!

hey...lets pull the cars up!!! and yep! you guessed it...headlight test flight!!

talk about a different heli! man she ran smooth, spooled up smooth and ran like a champ!!!

finally get to fly her!! been trouble shooting her for 3 days! in short...what a guy. Taking his time to help a newbie and show him the ropes of trouble just cant buy that kind of dedication!! You know these guys really like what they do and are truely dedicated!!! I have the fortunate ability to walk in the shop and buy, but alot of you are call in guys.......and I gotta say, if you want serious dedication to customers, these are your guys....

I cant say thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!

thanks Nathan! and if your "reading this", dont you have calls to return or someone to help?? LOL get back to work!!!!!!!!!

I know I've seen the puzzled look on new guys faces as I start to tear apart a heli to fix it for them but when you hear the gratefull thanks of the new guys it's worth it.

Nathan is the man.
My instructor (Mike Goza) told me about Ricks the first time I met him and it was one of the best tips I got. I live in Houston and can order it today and it is at my house tomorow. Nathan is the absolute best at what he does and if I call to order parts I know hell make sure I get what I need. Now If I could just get them to ship my new Ron Lund Teaches Auto Rotation DVD......
