Hello to all. My Blade SR has a new: swashplate, main shaft, tail boom, feathering spindle shaft, main blades, and collective/pitch servo.
I still can't get lift off. All of the linkages are intact and connected. It will power up fine, and tip right and left....but no lift off.
Anything I seem to be missing?????
I put it away for a while, but now, I'm back to work on it. Still need advice though!!

Check your linkages. They may be on reversed. Very common mistake. They should look like this.

You have full range of pitch?

When I unplug the motor, and run the servos through their motions, I'm seeing what appears to be full pitch..

The wires aren't shoved up against the motor are they?

Nope, have them tucked away nice and neat....but will re-do them just to reassure myself...Just had a thought, how likely would the main gear and main rotor shaft not really attach to each other correctly? What I mean is,....is possible to cause the main gear to foul up against the motor teeth when powering up??

check
i had the exact same problem after a crash rebuild - i found that i had not put the servo arms on correctly and was not getting full pitch upon throttle up - also check to make sure your swash plate has not separated ..
