clicking sound.
I noticed a clicking sound coming from the tail boom somewhere that clicks faster or slower depending on the blade speed. Its not the tinkering sound the belt makes against the boom. Its a distinct click. Its not loud but loud enough to hear it.
It just started today after the 2nd flight of the morning. I have put 8 gallons of very mild sport flying and a lot of hovering from different angles. Its also mostly stock with the exception of the blade grips.
I went away after the 3rd flight..came back on the 4th. As the spin the blades now by hand there is no click but im sure it will come back after flight..any ideas?
No one flies better than me..when I fly alone!

The teeth on the belt contacting each other? Might be worth checking the belt tension / twist again.J. B. Jones

After stripping it down nothing was found and everything looked fine. I flew 5 tanks this morning and no clicking sound whatsoever. As John calls it, it was a Casper.No one flies better than me..when I fly alone!

I'm no fan of ghosts in a machine. I bet you either had a twist in the belt and didn't realize it or the tension was a little loose. In any case it's good to hear the click is gone.
