Clutch lifespan ?
I have a new Spectra G and this is my first Gasser what should be the expected lifespan for clutch, clutch bell and lining? should it just be replaced at certain intervals?

Are there any other thing that need to watched close for ware?

Thanks

If it's like a nitro it should last a long time unless you have a few hot starts.

I hope I never have a hot start on my gasser. I had one on my 90 one time, that was a few seconds of heart thumping I dont care to have again. Rbort or Billme will have a real good guess.

I have over 200 hard flights now on my Predator with 710mm blades, ans all clutch components fine.

I think that if you do not have a hot start, your motor may need a rebuild before your liner will need replacing.

400 flights
I went 400 flights or 100 hrs before I had my clutch relined and that's all that was done to it.

It was still working OK, but started to enguage somewhat later than expected. Sent it back to Minair and they relined it for short money, great service!

Now I'm up to 633 flights and the current clutch (original except for liner) is still operating normally with no signs of higher enguagement speeds.

You've got that many flights on the heli? Well all i can say is it's one bad bird. I'm still going to get the jewel from you it's just going to be a little bit longer. Let me know when you come up with an idea on the Bat mount for the jewel.

Thanks

He's gonna make me a plaque for it!
Just got off the phone with Bob at Minair today in regards to something else. Mentioned to him about reaching 2K flights and he said he heard that from Carey . Well he asked me what date I did it, and said that he would make me a CF plaque for it. Cool eh?

me lova logn time lika yo clutcha, justa fiva dolla fo lina fo many many gallons.

For real though, if you detect that it grabs at higher RPM then you think is usual, you risk to bend and break the clutch spring members. If you never had "life threatening" hot starts and never ran very low head speed so it never overheated during a regular flight it will last almost forever.

BUT, if any of the abnormalities mentioned above occurred and you think that it grabs too late ( i.e. at too high rpm) than replace the liner. It's cheap and very easy to do.

Ask how if you determine if you need to.

Ode to Raja's clutch
Raja is unique and very special! He is holly in the world of RC and his equipment is protected by the Great Gods who live between peaks of Mount of Holly Spectra and Predator peaks. His flight timer has no limit and he (the master) never crashes because he possesses the divine power of THE JEWEL GENERATOR!!!

I was granted the power of THE JEWEL, but I could not handle it. I failed in front of master to keep the count of my flights because I lost respect for charging. Now my demise is near. May my clutch hold up as holly Raja's clutch did! I pray and hope. Please O subsidize me too.

EDIT: Yep, gas fumes with little vino and watching a cheesy oriental film...

No problem: Unleaded gas, 2005 Cabernet (two bottles recommended) and watch an old marshal arts movie from 80s with Chinese person translating the damn thing and you will feel THE POWER OF GREAT GOD MYMINDAISAFULKED.
