I was just going back through the manual on my vibe 90 and it mentioned sanding the inner parts of the frames for grounding... how necessary is this since I already have it all together?

If your running 72MHz you need to ground all parts of the frame to minimize interference this should be done with all carbon frames 2.4 ghz is not much problem but it’s still idea to do

How is sanding the frames supposed to ground them? I don't get it.

BTW, I usually sand the sharp edges off that are close to wires and tubing so it doesn't cut them.

When sand the frames you do it just enough to get to the bare carbon just barely remove the top layer epoxy so there’s continuity between parts so when all the metal parts are mounted there should continuity with every part this will also help with static arcing

^Exactly^.Carbon fiber is a conductive material,but the resin is'nt.You sand it just enough to bare the carbon fibers,so as to allow a good conductive path.

I do'nt crash,I just rearrange parts.

But actually you don't need to ground it, because there is no Belt driven Tail... So static charge should not occur...

This sanding deal was on the early Vigors with the belt drive. Totally not necessary on a Vibe.

If you on 2.4 then there's really nothing to worry about.

thanks for the good news I was going to be pretty mad if I had to take it all apart.
