I AM GLAD TO SEE MA BUILDING A LOW PARTS COUNT BIRD AS MOST OF THEIR HELIS HAVE A TON, THATS WHY I DONT OWN A VIBE 50 IT FLYS GREAT BUT WAY TO MANY PARTS, I FLEW MY FRIENDS FURY 55 AND IT REMINDS ME ALOT OF A FURY EXTREME WITH A LITTLE LESS CONTROL, I LOVE THE FURY 90, THERE IS SIMPLY NOTHING LIKE A 60 SIZE HELI WITH A 90 ENGINE,WHY MA WOULD BUILD SOMETHING SO CLOSE TO A 60 I WILL NEVER KNOW, I DO LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEW 90 IF IT HAS AS LOW PARTS COUNT AS THE 55, I TRUST IT WILL HAVE A DRIVE SHAFT AS BELTS ARE FOR PANTS.
Actually, the Fury 55 IS a "50" size machine. Depending on how it is equipped, it is also LIGHTER than some other very popular "50 size" models. While some may not like the belt driven tail rotor in theory, in practice we have found that with a low drag belt design the flight performance is unaffected.

low drag in the 50, huh? it musst be different than the Razor? it looks the same, can you feel me in, one of the bad things with the razor was its high drag from the tail, auto was half as long as any other 50 out there with it!

I never had a Razor but the Fury 55 belt must be different.
Very low drag and will do autos equal to any of them.

I like the belt drive. Little to no maintenance. Very simple and easy to repair.

I also agree that my Fury 55 with 620 blades has considerable hang time in auto's - I can tell absolutely no difference between it and any other TT drive I have flown.Problems ? -- Mine are flown in fresh daily

It is not only a different belt, it is a different set of pulleys in a larger diameter boom. MUCH different than the razor in performance.

The production version of the belt/tail system is very well executed. As Brian mentioned it is all new design from that of the Razor and early prototype Furion 55. Looks like the testing paid off.

My belt tention is set that I can just push on side of the belt about 1/2 way to the other side.

A video is better than words:

Now, that's almost as good as a TT. I don't think you'll miss the TT at all.

well i hate crown gears, horrible design. Always having to remesh the gears in the open tail box or else they will strip and i think everyone here has experienced losing the tail in flight. The little to no maintanance in the belt drive outweighs it all! I was just skeptical at the beginning about belt drive having experience with the align 600E stock belt drive.

I go way back to when the X-Cels had the crown gear AND a wire driven tail, before they even had tubes. That wire would wind up and un-wind at the worst times, making a good tail set up a real pain. Plus throw in mechanical gyros, before heading hold. Those were the days.

Can someone tell me why the TT crown gears on MA heli's has to be remeshed but is almost a non issue with JR or even Align and probably other brands as well?

I hope that won't be an issue with the new TT for the fury 55.

not the crown gears, the gears in the open tailbox always have to be remeshed. The delrin gear wears and then gets loose becoming liable to strip and lose the tail in flight.

Am I missing something about the crown gears? I have never had an issue with any crown gear on any Fury Extreme or Stratus that I have owned. I beat on them pretty good too.
I welcome the belt drive on the 55. I think its the way to go on a 50 size machine. There supposed to be cheap and low maintenance. If you want a tube drive, buy a 90. Even then, I would like an MA 90 with a belt but that's wish full thinking on my part. I really liked the Hirobo X-Spec and EVO 50, never had a problem with that belt drive system either.

Building the 55 now

Setting up Crowngear mesh
Just hold the heli by the rotor head. And then tighten the lower collar on the main shaft. Once the lower collar is tightened. Then suspend the weight of the heli by holding some pliers under the upper collar. Then tighten the upper collar against the upper bearing block.

After i started setting up the crown gear this way, i haven't had any issues.

Well got four tanks through my fury today. Chopper flys great. Still need to make some minor tweaks to the gyro and start leaning the motor in. Chopper feals bigger than a 50 size machine in the air close to a 90, but not the HP (but the motor is still new!)

Does anyone elses machine make a whining sound? It appears to be comming from the main gear.

Great machine!!!

If you not breaking it your not trying hard enough

Most likely coming from your tail rotor drive pinion.
If my memory is correct I think you have to move the pinion forward a smidge.

On the Fury 55 how do I move the tail drive pinion??

Thanks for your help.

nice looking heli indeed. the only thing that lets it down is those UC legs, has anyone tried an align set on it? the UC legs look too thin and don't suit the rest of the heli imo.

anyone know what length the tail boom is?

seriously debating getting one.

cheers
