I got my aurora 90 kit a few days ago and the builds been good except one issue. When I went to put on the tailrotor gearbox it stopped about 1/4in short of the bolt holes. The drive pins are lined up correctly and there is very little play between the constant drive gear and the tail rotor. Any thoughts?

Ensure that the torque tube coupler's are seated properly onto the torque tube.

Also ensure that the drive pins have been seated into the slot of the couplers.

+1

I just assembled a new boom and TT all "A" OK here, one of the couplers must not be seated properly, have you CA'd them already? If so you may have to dissolve the glue with acetone, and gently tap the coupling onto the TT further, I have an assembled spare TT as well, I can measure it if you like?

Also try holding the front bevel gears still while rotating the tail grips and push the tailcase in gently. It may be that the TT isn't engaged on the pins of the input shaft up front or at the rear.

thanks for the suggestions guys! I took another hard look at it and realized that I'm retarded.haha, one of the set screws was in a little too far so the tube never made it all the way in.
On another note, I'm trying to build the head and the manual doesn't say which damper (hard or medium) goes on the inside and which one goes on the outside. In fact the manual has a different damper setup all together. I had to look on the avant forum just to see that I wasn't missing parts.

For those dampers the medium one goes in first, and the harder one is the furthest out in the headblock.

one more question. There is two 16mmOD x 13mmID x 1mm thick washers that I can't find a place for. I looked over the manual a few times and don't see where they're suppose to be installed. I also have one 16x10x1 washer that the manual calls for to be installed in the blade grips but the problem is that I only have one. I was wondering if the 16x13 washers were the right ones for the blade grips or if I really am missing a 16x10?

Hi heliman,

The 16 X 13 x 1 mm spacers (av00-200-304) are the ones you want in the grips. Not sure about the 16 x 10 - will post later if I find anything.

Cheers.

Glad you got the TT sorted, first time round it can be tricky..

Have you checked the manuals on the Avant site?

Ya the problem was that I was opening a different version of the manual everyday it seemed like. I made the mistake of saving 1.14 and 2.0. I got it all together now and I'm just waiting for the electronics to fly this puppy. Thanks Again for the help.
