I experieced a problem over the weekend with my Fury Extreme that I dont understand why it is happening. When I unfolded the blades the swash plate moved all the way down causing the guide pins in the head to come out of the holes in the plastic washout base. Now let me start out by saying that I recently replaced the silver Extreme head (Pins were damaged) with a black head from a Fury expert. It is fine when the helicopter is turned on when I give it full negitive pitch I get 11 and the pins are still in the guide holes but when the servos are off and the weight of the blades makes the swash go down thats when the pins come out. Now I have another Fury with the black head and same plastic washout base and the linkages are all the same length but when I push the swash all the way down extreme negative the pins stay in the washout base holes. Why is this? Did MA change the length of the guide pins in the head at some point? I guess the easy thing to do would be to measure but I figured I would throw this out there. ANy info would be great.

I don't have that particular one, but the MA helis I do have that is normal. The thing you need to look out for is that the pin bottom does not hit the swash at full up and full cyclic. If you have any marks on the inner ring that is an indication of the pins hitting. Chris

There was an early main shaft that was 3mm shorter than what is used now .. 190 mm >193 mm I think ..... That may be your prob , but 3 of mine do the same , with gear off , its never been a hassle flying them ...

Stolen from Ricks site , in the XCell news section ...

How Long is your main shaft?

190mm or 193mm? If you have a Fury and found that you had to lower the swashplate to get a good symmetrical setup, you probably have one that's only 190mm. The machine and instructions were designed around a 193mm shaft. Don't be surprised if you have to raise the swashplate when you replace the original mainshaft after a crash. Right now there are both lengths out there.

For you SE, CT and Pro flyers out there, or anyone else who has the constant drive tail. There's a new mainshaft MA0866-15 just for the constant drive tail equipped machines. It's hardened in a different area than the MA0614.

my extreme does the same thing. it was like that from the day it was assembled. you just have to make sure the pins are lined up with the holes before you turn your radio on or else it jams the servo.

Dude...the fix is easy. Mine did the same thing, what you do is get a piece of shrink tubing...with your radio system on you mark the uni-ball on the swash at its lowest position on the main shaft, then you cut a piece of shrink wrap and shrink it on the shaft so it acts as a spacer between the top bearing and the lowest point of the uni-ball. This way when the radio is off the swash can not drop low enough to allow the pins to disengage. When the radio is on it is a non-issue. Basically you make a small sleeve about 1 in long or so that keeps it from dropping. Get it?

Easy fix and costs about.02 cents.

Same on the Fury Expert
This has been corrected on the Stratus, the washout now can't disengage anymore, even with the Swashplate all the way down onto the base of the airframe.

Great info
Thanks for the info guys. Im just glad to know that I was not the only one this was happening too. More then likely I have the longer main shaft which makes sense because my older machine is the one that doesnt do it which has the earlier shorter shaft.

Thanks,

Kyle
