V90 one way troubles
Hello folks,

i`m stumped with a problem of my V90 one way bearing. i`ve installed the preassembled unit as is, tried to maiden my V90 and found the one way locked in the wrong direction, so i have a screaming engine, and spinning main wheel but stationary rotor. I was a bit perplexed as i thought i had tried it before. SO i thought well maybe i didn`t catch it and it was missassembled from start. SO i disassemble the bearing, make it work in the proper direction again, reasemble the heli and try again.
Same thing happens, the one way works ok with teh engine idling, as soon as you start spinning up the rotor it snaps and teh locking direction changes ! Main wheel runs free with the engine driving it and the rotor is stopped.. turning the blades backwards teh one way locks and works as it would be supposed to do when running forward.

i`ve played this game about 4 times now, i can`t when assembled make teh one way do the same thing by hand, it just works fine, as soon as its on teh heli it will work for a few seconds then the main wheel starts spinning free.

i`m out of ideas, anyone know what to do?

i had the same prob with the vision 50c. clean the one way rollers with alcohol really good to remove the grease then use a light oil. i used a synthetic gun oil.

Do you you have the amended one way shaft? The ones in the kits were too small a diameter, the amended shaft is nice and tight to start but loosens up after some flights!
TRex 700 will fit too!

Got the one-way and shaft today thanks ELYQ. I'm just back from the field and still smiling from the maiden

I really like how the V90 flies, light yet stable but realy moves one you stir the sticks a bit only had time for 2 tanks before dark but got enough confidence to finish flying with a couple of inverted autos.

Looking forward to flying tomorrow
