Maybe not today but sometime in the future it will. It is not good to use adhesive around a clamp unless you have a way of tightening the clamp after the adhesive cold flows. In the tape industry there is a term called “blocking”. Blocking occurs when the tape is wound too tight on the roll and the adhesive cold flows out to the edges and bonds with successive layers. Have you ever had a roll of tape that just keeps ripping as you try to peel it? Anyway, when the sun hits your boom and warms up the adhesive it will ooze out to the edges. This in a sense decreases the diameter and loosens up the clamp. With the fiber board between the clamp you can not tighten it up. You may see problems in the future so keep an eye on it.
i have also put some thin stripes of selfadhesive black tape under these pink collars and when i screwed everything it just won't move.
In your original photos this servo wasn’t there. It appears as though the servo was forward mount which on most helis is an upgrade. Did you change this to rear mount?
It looks like the control rod is very close to the mounting screw to the clamp in the photo. Make sure they don’t make contact or you will suffer RF interference. There appears to be a shield / ground around your HT wire. Get rid of it.
one last question. has anyone used FMA copilot? is it any good? does it really work?
Yes, maybe, yes.
I learned to fly my Predator with the FS8 copilot. It works very well but on a gasser it requires opto isolators on every channel and a separate battery that only supplies the receiver. Luck would have it my power switch failed on the receiver and that resulted in a chicken dance. If you add the cost of the opto isolators to the FS8 you are almost the same as the APi2000 stabilizer. The APi will give you the benefit of a PCM receiver. I switched both my helis to the APi stabilizer. Without the need for the isolators my receiver is backed up by my Jewel generator so even if the switch fails I won’t loose control.
You have been experiencing some problems that may be generating RF. Unless your ship is pristine to begin with I wouldn’t go the FMA copilot route.
What could be more fun?
