Hi.. Got my new tail boom in and now trying to figure out how to get it apart.. I guess they glued it together. I got it out of the frame but it still has part left in.. What is the best way to seperate these parts.. Now I am trying to get the tail rotor engine mount apart from the old boom.. Wonder if there is an easier way. If not i may just start over with a new engine mount. thanks..

I used nail polish remover on my hummingbird an piccolo to get the glued sections off. I think its the acetone that debonds it.

The easiest way is to buy the whole frame assy for $11. Sometime you can twist the boom and it will come loose, if that doesn't work, I just pull the wires out of it, saw it off flush with the frame and tail mount, and drill the old section out. I use a couple of drops of medium CA on each end when putting the new boom on. Just prefit it first. If you drill it, the new boom may fit but those little slits on the side of the frame and tail will still be blocked by the old boom, just clean them out. Sand each end of the new boom to scuff it slightly or the CA may not grip it that well and it will come loose and rotate on you.

Try using a heat gun or blow dryer, its worked 50/50 with me. I have gotten 2 out of 4 booms removed this way. Good luck, Jimmi

I ended up having to buy a new frame, tail boom and rear motor mount too. When I put all the new stuff together I used hot glue. I just put some hot glue around the boom and stuck it in the hole and it held just fine. That way it's strong enough to hold but you can still break it free with some force to replace your tailboom if you have to without busting everything apart again.

Thanks For the Many responds and Ideas.. I did just about all of them now thanks to you all.. 1 st on the frame end I drilled it out. Then the idea of the acetone came in and I used it for the tail motor mount. But when I got a little worried that It may not worked I ordered the whole frame asembley. So good thing is i may be up and practicing before the parts come in.By that time I may need them..LOL. Im really glad i joined this forum. Im also a member of Automotive forums. I am a mechanic by hobby now. So I like to help others out just like you all do on here. Ever need any automotive help. Fell free to stop by that forum. Again thanks. I still need to get a pitch gauge..
