In this cool weather, I can adjust the belt in the shop and then go out side and its loose and skips. Does this happen with the CF boom?

Also With the CF boom do you ever or seldom have to adjust the belt?
Seems like Heliproz has one for $25-ish.

I wonder if I would also need to go with CF on the boom braces?

I'm just tired of adjusting my belt

Heck I guess torque tube would be another option.

Here in Minn. we use CF booms, no more tending to the belt. I love it this way.

I second what GaryH says. The aluminum boom is a pain in cold weather. I have found that even the carbon shrinks a little but not so much as to be a problem.

If you skip me I can't play!

Mavrikk Tail gearbox
I have the Mavrikk alloy rotor gearbox and it is held on the boom by a clamp. To adjust the belt, just loosen the gearbox clamp and move the gearbox in or out as necessary. it's open and you can test the belt tension with your finger. it makes adjusting in the feild a lot easier.

Is there a carbon boom available for the Titan or am I stuck buying a new belt if I want to try the carbon boom?

The part number is PV0523 for a Titan or E620. I have one on my E620 that I use for winter flying and have never had to adjust the tension. Make it nice and tight at room temperature and it is still good at 20F (that’s about the lowest I want to go).

I got mine at amainhobbies.com. As I recall onlyraptors.com also has them.

Thanks BTS, I have been curious for a while. It seems like I have to adjust my boom every time I fly so I would like to try the carbon boom to see if it helps.

You can get CF booms at http://www.KingKonghobbies.com , they do mail orders. Same belt with the CF boom.
