It's the inner fixing bolts that I seem to be having a problem with.

They will not stay tight what ever I do.

Anyone heard of or know anything about the Nord-lock system of securing bolts so they can't come loose?

Watch at YouTube

I have just ordered a few sets of M3.5,M4 and M5 to try out to use instead of the spring washer on the fixing bolts.

They look good!
I'd like to get some for my hatori as well, let me know how they work out for you and I'll see about where to get them locally.

Thanks Malc!

M5 and M4 Washer sets received and the muffler is now back on to try to see if it stops on.

Various things to try when I get down the field at the weekend.

I didn't order any M4 washers
If necessary maybe I can ask for 2 sets from you for the hatori?

Raja, I have some m4 nordlocks. Pm me with your home addy and I will throw 2 sets in the mail for you. I have not forgotten that you gave me those Bergen boom clamps years ago!

Thanks
In reality those 4mm bolts will most likely be fine, mine never fell off.

Give me some good reports this weekend, I'd love to hear that everything held up and stayed put!

Yeah I didn't have a problem with my 4mm bolts coming loose either but I thought I'd fit some anyway

Five hours down the field and it looks like it is all sorted.

With the governer on I can now do climb outs in normal mode with out any hesitation and there is no problem switching down the flight modes either.

Engines running nicely.

What I have done today is to totally start afresh with the needles on the carb - back to sort of default settings and have worked from there.
Can't say exactally what the different with the needles is but something has worked.

The GV-1's secret menu settings have been put back to those recommended.

It didn't start to good earlier on the morning though.

At initial needle settings and within half a tank of fuel being used the muffler nearly fell off completely

This was again the inner engine to metal plate joint and had just had a new gasket and the Nord-Lock washers fitted.

The outer joint was again OK.

The solution - which has lasted for the rest of the day with no sign of leaks or coming loose was to completely do away with the inner gasket all together and just have metal to metal.I still used the washers and the outer gasket.

It has been fine.

So it's all running OK now apart from a rumbling noise that has developed coming from the main running gear.
This is very noisy when the engine revs are up.

I'll post regarding this shortly.

a curate's egg day.

Doesn't sound too good for nord-locks..and seems to answer my question about why can't it loosen with the nordlocks staying locked..

The noise really sounds just like loose pinion mesh..as in worn main gear or pinion though they look decent enough in the vid. Have you oiled the oneway cage recently?

Mine not been flown for months due to moving house...did start up after loads of pulls early this week and hovered to check it out..decided to swap all the lines and clunk and nihm's today...then when I started it it was revving way high..had to jump on my killswitch. Then not having flown for a while I wasted the rest of my time pratting about with checking servos and travels etc and looking for slop before this dumba$$ thought to drop throttle trim - Doh!

Sounds like you got it tuned right. Bad tune and your pipe will come loose.
