After a couple of months do to a crash, I got the heli rebuilt. Thanks again for every ones help the other day.Here's a summary of how the day went down.
So time to go out front and work those bugs out. Got it fired up and starting to bring up the head speed. Slowly, just a little more, Woooo, what was that. It just did a 360. Kill the engine and now lets take a look at the tail. It seams that the push rod is binding. So after looking at every thing closely all I found was a Ber on one of the linkage balls. OK lets try again. Slowly, slower, hear comes the point at witch it happened, Crap, there it goes again.
I must have looked at the way that the gyro was moving the tall for about 30 min.First I thought the tail was binding.Then I thought that some how I got the servo reverts. Then I try reversing the gyro. But in my head I'm thinking that can't be it,because I didn't do any thing to the gyro sens the last time I had the heli working. Holly crap, I can't believe it that's what it was. Ha, some how the gyro most have lost it's flash memory. I don't now do they do that?
OK,ya lets get this thing fired up again. Slow, OK past the point of the tail thing. All right the tail is stell working fine, now befor you go to far lets try and give the tail a wiggle. Just to make shore it's not binding up. Good, I couldn't get the tail to act up any more. Time to move her up to a hover. Man the blades are tracking perfect. Cool check that. !@#$k, The engine cut out, has to be a bad plug. I just put that plug in. Yep, bad plug. It will not stay running when I pull the worm-er. Man I hope that it doesn't happen again. This is my last plug. So now why, OHHH you used that gasket sealant. That stuff can fry plugs right? Yep after asking the web. shere enough it well fry plugs.
Crap, bring it in take the muffler off. Yep, that must have been the problem.I can see that some of the sealant was in the egzost opening. After cleaning that out, went back out.OK, cool the engine is running great,and not dying or over heating. But stell well have to check it at the field. OK, remember that.
Alright lets put every thing on charge, while weighting for the wife to get home.The weight was killing the nephews and I. They have school tomorrow and they live a hour away and we stell have to drive them home. Alright burning day light.
Great she's home! Alright boys you got every thing. Yep, can you help me get some of my heli stuff in the car. Wife,"What, I thought that you were going to take the boys out flying while I was gone". Me,"How was I suppose to manage that when you had the only car".Wife,"Crape that means that we have to leave right now, and you well have to fly some were over by their house". Me,"Yep! ,and we stell have not ate yet".
To funny, and she seas that I have selective hearing. Man she realy most have thought that I was realy Bing a jerk when I was working so hard on getting the heli up and running and not much else.But then again she is not the one that the boys ask to bring with. The next time you go flying. So she had no Idea how bad that I wanted to make this happen for them.
Alright guys you ready to go flying, alright lets go. Get out to their house and find a field off dreams of are own. Cool this will be fun. Get the stuff all unpacked.
OK you take this and as you are walking away move the sticks and keep doing that till I say stop. Stop, range check done, check. Look over the heli, every thing looks A OK, check. Alright let's put some fuil in it. OH MY GOD, can you believe it I forgot some thing. It was the battery for my e fuil pump. Yep, and I don't have any other way of getting fuil into the heli tank.
I know what all you are thinking, why not just use your stater battery, or your on board battery, some thing like that right. Well it just so happens early at home when I was getting all the bugs out, my e fuil pumps moter tuck a S!@#$t on me. So being that it's a Sunday no LHS is open. So hear is what I came up with. I tuck out the pump and put the drive shaft in the chuck of my dremel. Now it works better then ever.
Ya It works great when you have a battery for the dremel. hopefully I can get one from one of there nabors. No, but they had a cord less drill. Thankfully it work.
OK guys fire in the hole, stand back because you never no when this thing is going to blow.
I get it going and start to loosen up. Now I'm doing some mild tick ticks up high. I can't hold any thing to strait because off how bad the wind was. Shoot I went to do a simple flip and the wind pushed the tail out and I ended up doing a realy ugly looking piro flip. So not much fun for me but fun for the kids. Then as I was doing some more tick tocks one of the tail supports comes undone and the blade strikes it. The engine dies and I auto down. Thank god that I was doing a lot of them on the sim. It looked like I got the heli down soft enough. But I did brake one side of the landing gear. But one of my bran spankin new g5 blades has a big gash in it.
What more can I say. Man what a day.
Good times.

If you had to reverse the gyro and servo you likely got the belt twist backwards. That'll spin the tail blades the wrong direction causing you to reverse the control direction. Check to make sure the tail is spinning the correct direction.

That's proudly what happened. A pone the rebuild I also replaced the tail blade shaft,and the tail blade grip assembly. So when I did the tail grip assembly, I thought that I put them on the run way at first and then tuck it of and put it on so that it spun the right way. But now that you mention that. I did probably put them on the first time the way that the belt was befor this rebuild.It all makes sense now.

So did I beat all the heli Gods challenges and by doing so pest them off. So, Blammo take that blade! Or I just didn't see all the stop sines that they were throwing, because they can't change that witch is already written in Stone. Wouldn't it just have been nicer to have made the tail boom support come off at home when in a hove. At least that some foreseeable way that it wouldn't have recked any thing.
Ha,lol to funny.

So who has a matching blade that I can buy?
Maverick pro g5 wide core 600mm. Is what I need.
