This might help you decide on the Logo:

I really like the Logo but I really hate belt drives otherwise I would have a hanger of them.

Why do some hate the belts drive? I have had many helicopters over the years and have found that the belt drive ones generally last longer and require less maintenance?

It sounds like your running in GOV. mode? Switch to FEP. and see if that helps.

Putting on a belt and will fly it this weekend. I heard that static can build up with belts causing electronics to malfunction. Anyone seen this?

As far as I know that was only a problem on the very early 500 and never on the 600. The later 500 with belt were good. The belt will be smoother than a TT and have very little drag if you spray it with silicone spray lube. Don’t use any other king of lube on belts.

Well, I did convert my 600Esp to belt driven, I have now 0 Issue with belt, it is very very good, I will change my T450Pro to belt driven either.

And regards lite coat of grease for model gears, I never use it but I think it will be a fantastic idea since the real car use an oil to deal with gears.

BUT, you should be aware of any brand of lub..., use the one that can uses espicially for gears

Ok, flew with a belt today and the only thing that was different was the sound and that was real subtle. Felt every bit the same as my TT and I wasn't afraid to strip gears. I didn't hoss on it too much as it's the first time I've flown it in a month (had to buy new frames then find time to replace them). So far I'm a happy belt driven camper.

In that picture, your umbrella gear is definately not seated. This would cause it to strip.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.

It was very tight when I first put it in there. Now someone told me that even though those things are pressed in there really tight that once you get to hossing on em hard that the TT gear can back away from the vertical umbrella gear. He said that you could wrap some thread around the base of the TT gear and then CA it to harden it so that it won't back away in flight. I'm just sick of it in any case. If a tall blade of grass so much as sneezes on my rotor blades teeth chip so I'm done with it for a while.

Do the Belts stretch?
Ok started flying the 600 a little harder yesterday and noticed a funny sound coming from the heli particularly with hard stop and starts. My buddy had heard this before with his 450 and said the belt was slapping the inside of the boom. I landed and sure enough there was some slack in the belt that wasn't there before. Is the boom drifting in on the boom block or is the belt stretching?

rog it could be heat expansion causing the belt to get looser in flight? did you silicone it or use any sort of lube?

Who cares... its just money...

Nope no lube. Where do you get the silicon spray? If it got hot and expanded wouldn't it tighten back up when it cooled down?

Trev I do believe the belt does have some heat expansion issues. It was warm and very loose the other day when I heard it slapping doing aileron tic tocs. Brought the heli down and the belt felt loose. Went to tighten it up a little while later after changing landing gear out (those wide 3D gear are horrible) and noticed that the belt wasn't so loose. It actually felt kinda tight. Gonna need some lube. Where do you get silicon spray?
