Pull your clutch and see if the clutch has sprung, the 2 engagement ends will be spread out making the clutch drag (normal over time). You can either pinch back even with pliers or better yet replace it. Make sure you have a good clearence between the clutch and liner.

Could be a high spot in the liner or its not worn in yet, could be a sprung clutch (bending them back doesn't work), or could be the idle is too high.Andy

hey
i bought it here on rr so i dont no if it is old or new or what , i guess im going to have to take it apart and take a look,should i go ahead and replace clutch and liner since i got it apart,i just hate to tier it apart since it is running perfect other than the blades turning while at idle, and it is as low of an idle you can get with out it stalling, but i dont have a bridged glo plug, my buddy was telling me to get a bridged glo plug and i can lower the idle a good bit more, could that fix it, thanks for the replies jason

I guess with out knowing what you are calling a nice low idle I would say your clutch is dragging

Pull your motor and take the clutch off and set it in your clutch bell and see if it is tight in areas or if the clutch itself has sprung.You can do this all in about a 1/2 hour if that depending on your heli and how your motor comes out.

I do not recommend using a bridge or idle bar glow plug. That's an old school plank fix. sounds like your clutch is dragging. Easy way to fix it is take the clutch bell and sand the liner down a little. I usually just take a piece of sand paper on my finger and spin it a couple of times is should help.

I don't get it. Why is this a big deal? It'll just wear itself in. As long as it's not actually grabbing at idle, I don't see the issue. Lots of guys have their rotor spinning lazily at idle on new builds.If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

If it drags more and more over time, you've no doubt got a worn out (sprung) clutch. If it gets better over time then it's low time and just needed to wear in.

As BH says, don't pinch the shoes back in -- that's just asking for trouble.

lube: Apparently you took that the wrong way. You are absolutely entitled to ask any question you like. I wasn't being facetious. I don't know you or how knowledgeable you are when it comes to helis. All I was trying to say is that it's not going to hurt anything if they spin a little at idle.

If it's a concern for you anyway that's fine, resolve it as you see fit. Just didn't want you to go tearing down the heli if you were worried that you'd done something wrong on the build or about it breaking apart or for safety reasons or what have you as it's pretty normal to see the rotor turn at idle.

Sorry if I offended.

FWIW I was having trouble with stock Raptor 30 (not 50) clutches not lasting very long even on a new liner. Bought a Quick UK clutch part no. RD10 back in October 2008 - no more trouble! See if they have a similar part for the 50.
