push rod guide breakage
My Raptor 50 Titan is breaking push rod guides. I've changed every bearing on this bird including the engine bearings. New main shaft, starter shaft, bearings, tail grip bearings, clutch. Overall it flies great and I can't really see any noticeable vibration. Still as of the last two weekends, I keep breaking these guide.

Any ideas.

Rob, I have found the stock ones to be quite brittle. Quick fix is to use a tie wrap arround the whole thing to hold it in place. I changed mine to some I bought from helikraft and they are much sturdier. They make them for both 30/50 and 60/90 size booms.

Have you checked to make sure they're all in line? I know it seems silly, but it's simple and I'm sure you've checked it. The rod isn't bent? Just throwing it out there. I only break mine in a crash..

Those ones from HeliKraft look good.

Interesting....i've had a set on my Raptor for say a few hundred flights, and a couple of other Raptors besides, I've never damaged one that wasn't self inflictedAndy
