Well finally have got my 700 broke in. This is my first 90 and I love it did not really no what all the hype was about until now. Wow is all I can say stump pulling pure power!!!!

Had a lot of people show up at the field today and had a blast.

One guy lost his 30 size air-wolf
One guy lost gears on a bad auto on a 600
And I lost a set of 690 Vblades

I had one of my tail boom support rods bolt backed out when I was inverted and inbeded it in the blade(see pic) I will be going back over this bird and checking every bolt and nut again,Because losing a set of blades to some thing like this really hurts.

Just thought I would share my day.

O and by the way I will never ever not have a 90 size bird again just something about the way it fly's.

Why did some one not tell me? LOL!!!!!!!!!

Here is some pic of today

Welcome to the wonderful world of 90 size POWER!!!!

And, never forget the importance of locktite. Larger birds are less forgiving in that department.

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!
RE-KIT!!!!!

Thanks and I am pretty sure that I used locktite (blue).

Should I be using red locktite on this bird?

I did the blue locktite .. nope
Then some red locktite ... nope
Now i've used 5 min epoxy ... so far so good

I also bought the microheli boom brace set. It's made to brace for vibes which is good but i wanted to tie both rods togeather.

I also did a tywrap thing. One on each rod then strapped togeather right by the boom clamp. That way it will hold the rods should the bolts vibrate out again on me.

Side note is that you can use a longer bolt that the oem specs. I vote for the longest bolt wit 5 min epoxy.

cheap insurance IMO

I had the same thing happen to me a few times. I got these from Tim Jones, he uses studs and lock nuts instead of the screws. so far it is working great.

I have approx 6 to 7 cases thru the bird at present and I used Red Loctite on mine and so far it's holding but the stud idea is a good one.
Mike
Did you do the same thing on the other end?

What are you using on the studs to keep them from backing out? Anything else on the lock nut as well?

Seeing how this has happened to quite a few people, I plan on doing this to mine tonight.
1st. Drill a small hole thru the stock Socket Head Cap Screw, or buy a Drilled Head Socket Head Cap Screw.
2nd. Safety wire this side screw, to the other side screw. Or you could also safety-wire the screw to one of the upper screws, this will prevent the screws from ever backing out unless you cut the wire.

We do this to our screws on our road-race motorcycles and it should work well here, even with very fine wire.
