That really sucks big time. I think it would be cheaper to buy a new rave. What did it do before it went in? Could the link have broken during the crash?

From what I have read the X50's are breaking like that. Also reading about the Upgrade on an align head. Harmonic vibration?

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

Darn! Well since you just sold your fury 55 hopefully it will cover the cost with plenty of room to spare.

The pushrod looks bent. I think that is just crash damage. I would be suspect of the V Bar sensor from your description. I know a lot of guys flying them and sensors are replaced somewhat often. Just a thought.

Man, sorry to hear about your accident.

I've never heard of a pushrod going to the swashplate failing in flight....

To me, it looks like it may be crash damage because the swashplate pushrod looks bent just before the break. Also, the bent pushrod going to the servo seems to indicate the same.

I'd sure look closely at the VBar unit.

Keep up your rotor speed !

That pushrod looks like a really clean (too clean) break. I've done some crashing in my day and the pushrods are usually bent like pretzels before they actually snap. Take that broken pushrod and a couple pairs of pliers and try bending the other end of it. If it bends without snapping clean like that, there must have been a flaw in the metal or a crack started when the threads were cut into it. If the other end snaps the same way, perhaps it was just crash damage.....but in that case you might want to try another brand of pushrod that isn't quite as brittle ( ie: JR ) ???

to me that really looks like crash damage because of the bend, if it snapped in flight it would not have bent at all.

WOW, that sucks... Ive been there

Question on the FBL grip balls. I have the ones that require a nut on the back side of the grip, are you saying they are the old design and recommend I get these new bolt/ball type? I had not heard of failures

As I have understood it, the redesign of the blade holders is not for lack of strength. It is for increased feature. The original threaded blade holders usually ended up with broken threads. So the newer design was to make the blade holder better survive a crash and be refurbishable.

Are you talking about the blade grip balls? Blade holders are the grips to me... Are there new grips also

On Tattoos machine the blade grip balls thread into the blade holder. Then they changed to a blade grip without a thread but with a nut instead. Then they moved to a threaded grip ball that you see in the picture above.

Hope you understand all this. Almost got me dizzy. :-)
