I need help!!

I'm building a Funkey Hughes 500 Tow Defender and the fly bar is hitting the top of the fuselage. Can anyone tell me if this will
hit in flight? I'm using the Trex 600 kit.

Thank you,
Jon

I use Trex 600 and Fun-Key Hughes-500E, it should be OK while flying. But sometimes, it shakes alot, you can try to use low rpm, high pitch and light blade to reduce the shake.

+1 wont hit during flight. I've got a 500 E with Trex 600 mechanics. Just make sure its as level as you can get it before you spool up. Once your flying your fine.

In addition to what was mention you can also run supports from the top of the mechanics diagonaly down to the base to firm it up a bit. It did wonders for mine

You had me at Hover

I would think that a low RPM would make it shake more. have you flown any high G maneuvers with you 500? I'm not the type to just hover around.

Thank you,
Jon

Everybody that runs those trex 600's in scale fuse uses 1500 rpm at the head. It'll fly fine, give it a shot. You have all them guns hanging off it and supposedly this is mandatory. There is a post of the same fuse over at HF that came apart with his stock head speed, same exact setup, brands, everything
