O yea crashed again. Lost it in the stupid sun man. It will get ya everytime. My tank is leaking like a sive man sux. I had to richen it up 2 clicks to compensate. Anyway minimal damage blades feathering shaft and main shaft not bad. So i think im gonna get a new head block i over preloaded it and i had to twist it on it was actually cutting into the side of it and metal was coming off. So that could be the vibration issue anyway i think im getting my tic tocs down o yea. Well i wont be flying for a couple of weeks money super tight and i cant afford blades

Sorry to hear about your crash. Sounds like your pushing yourself and learning. Im sure you will start to see the benefits of your crashes coming through in your flying soon enough..

Do I straighten shafts?

Nope.. Straight into the trash. If the shafts arnt perfectly straight they will cause vibes.

Even with the smallest crash I change out the spindle, main shaft and tail.

About the only items I will attempt to straighten are the flybar and tail control rod.

Yup! +1 on that....
Just as a self conscious thing you know they are straight if you replace them.
Sun got me too on my last flight. The sun actually makes me fly almost on the deck now because of it. AND i tell you what man, it is soooo much better flying low to the ground. I think I fly better when its lower.
But anyways, yeah thats a costly repair there.

I will let you know on those tank grommets. I got them in today and will test monday

replaced the grommet with the original elyq ones on rcheliworkz. Works perfectly. Found the olf one to be cracked. The new one was tough getting in, and the center part was hard getting in also, so i knew it was good. Not one tad bit leaked!

I have to replace my elevator servo because of the leak. It was literally dripping after a flight. Then the servo became really stiff with no power to it. Cleaned it out, greased it all up again. Was stiff, then magically the servo bunny came along over night and freed it up somehow. Works again, but gets warm. And i dont think it should be getting warm

yeah i had to do the same, small flat head so it dont puncture it, but carefully. Then i took a little bit of tri-flow oil and put on the center insert thingy, so its easy to get in. I just kept wiggling it slowly and eventually it snuck itself into place.

hahaha, when i took the grommet out for replacement, i pulled a little too hard on the clunk line, and with that MOAS filter, and how the foam swells, fell off inside the tank. Talk about hard as hell to get out.

So theres a "Upgraded longer main shaft" for the v50 is this so you can run different heads? Or atleast ones with the antirotaion bracket?

i put the grommet in first, then used a drop of tri-flow on the nipple and gently wiggled it in. its a tight fit when its in.

Main shaft, not sure. Havent heard of this one yet

Yup Yup. Thats what happened. Like i said, not one bit of leak at all. I noticed my engine runs a bit fatter also/ rich. Now i have to re tune the engine. With edge 603's, YS56SR engine, and governed to 2100rpm, it just will not do any tic tocs. Falls straight from the sky. I tried big tic tocs, and still. Rpms drop rapidly. Sucks!

that due to being rich? mine does the same thing has a 50st though. Governed to 2050 somewhere around there. Tic tocs are in your mid range right?

yeah i always thought so. There was a thread that tim jones posted and it said HS needle is for WOT. Tune it first for consistent full throttle straight passes, and when you let off and pull the stick back to the mid range the smoke should stay consistent. Also consistent with full throttle.
Anyways yeah, but with 100-110 degree temps here, mine is already coming down pretty hot even being rich.
I now get wag in my tail here and there when coming back into a hover, which is weird.
Have you ever had any issues with the links that attach to the rods that go around the flybar? They tend to get loose and rock on the threads. I have replaced several of them so far, bought the version 2 links, and same thing. I even CA glued them on also while threading them on. I had one slip over a few threads the other day.

WOT is Wide Open Throttle
I use Raptor or Logo links, they last heaps longer! Others I would consider are Quick UK and JR links.
