Now I know why you talk about measuring, that is a 20mm boom.

On the 25mm boom the end goes inside the boom. There is no measuring on the boom. The end goes in until it hits the flange.

Okay Vario owners, heres another question for ya.

Look at the first pic and notice for you to get the red line parallel and the two arms (green lines) so their vertical one must leave space shown by the yellow lines.

Now in the second pic if you move the pieces in so they are no space you can see that the arms are now at a angle.

I know I could move the white arms in a hole on each side but that still dont get them vertical.

So, is the angle ok? Maybe Im too picky.

1275mini,

Yours has them too?

I haven't seen any brass spacers anywhere. Well shoot.

You know the instructions dont even show them on page 9 but on page 10 it looks like their there after the assembly.

Add them to my missing ball on the 94/6 bearing and missing 12/3 landing gear buttons.


Well now thats weird, on page 336 of the BIG catalog they dont have spacers but they are in the inside holes.

Both my Benzine heads do not have brass spacers. They are assembled as per your second picture but it looks a bit different as I am using the metal mixing levers.

Here is something else I cant figure out. Looks to me like these rods are to long.
If you hold the 13mm under the swash as per directed and have the mixing arm horizontal you can see how far above the ball the clevis is.

Screw your links further on. On mine I have some thread exposed through the window on the link on each end.

On the upper section I just moved my pieces out on the flybar so the arms where straight up and down on one of the machines and left them in on another.

Only the acrobatic benzin has the brass spacers on the flybar to move the links out. The angle you see is correct.

Time to rob a t-maxx of it's links.

Traxxis uses the same diameter links as vario.

Most hobby shops have car parts, few stock Vario parts.

If you don't see the threads through the "window" in the plastic links, you aren't bottomed out.

Okay, I screwed the links all the way in (unusual) and it works.
I also made some spacers for the flybar out of left over tubing from the tail torque tube.
Nice having a lathe.

Spacers....
Both of mine have been flying fine for 3 seasons now and there is no spacer in the kit.... they don't show on my instruction sheets either.... maybe they are for a different version kit???
Also, you will note that Joe mentioned, above, the angle was correct.... and if anyone knows the machine, it would be him.....

Good Luck... Stan
