i stripped my trex 600 of its guts and transferred them to a used logo 600SE i picked up here.
I went completely through the airframe and rebuilt from the ground up, replacing radial bearings and repacking the thrust bearings. everything is silky smooth on the bench.
i loaded the logo 600 preset as a baseline and went out for a hover. for the first minute or so, everything was GREAT! not a single vibration---just a solid, quiet, event-less hover. i spent that time setting my headspeed via endpoints with the help of another running a skytach (soon to enable the gov). landed, adjusted the radio a bit and spooled back up for a test flight. the next minute was really good, but then i got a hard tail twitch. then another. then a hard cyclic twitch. i brought it back down as quickly as possible with another 2-3 twitches therein.
i took it home and rebuilt the tail again, thinking it was a tail issue.
took it out for another flight today and it was worse than before. 10 seconds in to the hover it violently twitched both tail and cyclic. so, i landed and have returned home again.
first thing i'm going to do is check all the connections, even though they are fresh and shoo-gooped in to place....maybe something slipped.
aside from that, i searched these and other forums for similar issues but see none.
to be clear, this same unit and running gear flew my trex 600E perfectly for 100s of flights.
anyone have any other ideas?
unfortunately, i don't have the vibration log at my disposal as this is a v4 vbar. but, please let there be no mentions of upgrading to v5.2. it's really a broken record i'm tired of hearing lately. this vbar worked fine on the trex in both v3.6 and v4. and, people troubleshot issues prior to v5...i'd just like to have a civil discussion without having to filter out the upgrade posts. i've upgraded one of my other vbars to 5.2 and i just did not feel any difference/value in the effort. and, unless I just can't find the solution through traditional means, i'm not really excited about upgrading/resetting up just to use the log feature. hope that last bit doesn't come off negatively. just looking for some solutions other than buying more software.
thanks for any help.
if it ain't broke, break it.
