Need Guru: Sceadu Evo has Play in delrin main gear
To the gurus out there:

I just upgraded my gears to the delrin set, and noticed a little bit of axial (up and down) play in the main gear ~0.2mm(.010" ). The main mast was pulled up as far as it goes and has no play in it. Is this normal or should I add a spacer to get rid of this?

Thanks,
Patricio

Good flight, good night!

This is probably normal. I have two of these gear sets. One shows about the same amount of play as you mentioned (0.2mm). The other one is tight and shows no play at all.

The tight one is newer and is installed in one of my helis. The other one is currently not installed. That might make a difference.

I usually install the thin shim between the bottom of the autorotation case and the anodized aluminum hub that holds the lower gear. Did you install the shim that you had with the standard gears? This doesn't ship as part of the SD-G DTDS upgrade.

Yes, I installed the shim that came with the std gear. I could add a similar shim at the top, to eliminate play...Good flight, good night!
