What kinda info you need? Well I also need info on how to minimize vibration. Is it because im using more oil for the break in that it vibrates so much? I just have a feeling that it needs to be broken in and fine tuned which i have yet to learn. here is some pics with the new wire arrangement and generator sitting pretty back there.

Lynx Clutch and Liner Technical Comparision
ok, I just got the clutch so i thought i will share a little technical side of it for all of you guys...

lets have a closer look on Align Stock Clutch/Liner:

Clutch Diameter: 48.30mm
Clutch material: Unknown but, looks like a very low quality spring steel material
Liner thickness: 1.0mm

gap between clutch and liner: 0.5mm approx (but, there are cases where the gap is different due to Align's quality control.

Lynx Clutch:
Diameter: 48.5mm
Clutch material: high quality spring steel.
clutch area: this clutch covers (as they mention) 20% more area than the stock clutch...result better grip and engages faster
Lynx Liner Thickness: 1.2mm

your final gap between the clutch and the liner is below 0.3mm
which is much better than the stock clutch.

it was just a technical comparision which i thought of sharing with all of you guys...i can see that this clutch will perform better and will last longer.

Nice upgraded clutch hub, and the Lynx clutch looks great!

Now go out and try to beat that thing into submission.

I picked up a 12.5 mm thick mod 1 from FAD-heli, but the site is currently closed. The gear is beefy!

LcyRace, nice idea for holding the liner in while the epoxy sets up.

Is FAD-heli still in business? I thought they shut down.

I will have to give credit to Ali about how to hold the clutch liner. It was totally his idea.

It was stated on the FAD-heli site that when stock ran out, they would be closing. The last time I looked, there were still plenty of items in stock, so I'm not sure why the site hasn't opened up again after the Holidays.

OK so I want to get a tuning session done here on this thread. Can everybody that has a helibug in the air and flying please share their needle settings and fuel/oil mixes with what type of oil. Maybe throw in some tips and tricks that you guys found to tune better. Any input would be great.

Thank you

I think the engine tuning would be highly dependent on the particular climate you're in (i.e. temperature/humidity). You need to talk with CNCJunkie about tuning since you're both out there in Hawaii.

I was just thinking of getting a good idea what everybody's base line settings are. I was mainly wondering what kind of oil/gas mix you guys are running and what type of oil. I want to switch over to synthetic and just wondering what ratio to use without damaging my engine. The factory oil ratio is 25:1 as stated in the manual.

Thanks

I personally think 25:1 has far too much oil content but I haven’t had any experience with the RC engine until now, I started with the factory settings and used 33:1 and after a gallon I switched to Castrol TTS fully synthetic mixed at 40:1

I only like to fly gassed up
