Ha! I build on a Mikado towel to keep the German ambience alive!!! Enjoy it while it lasts. The first part of the build when you get to the gears is as sweet as it gets!!!

Hi guys

Gears and head done. Wow, what a great build.
Took a few trial runs to get the end float and meshing correct.

Wow, expensive box, specially the 6x TP!!! $1500 there alone? Nice setup, I have exactly the same but for the 255, I chose the 156 for a bit more torque at the expense of some speed. I also swapped the Pyro for a Xera 4530 after 10 flights. What BEC will you use for HV?

I run the main & slave wires out of my 120+ to the VBar running 3 x 8717's and an 8900G. Works great at 6v.

Note: Not recommended for version 7 or lower!

I wouldn't go and say its not recommended. Some people like a completely uncontrolled few seconds of heli flight while the jive and receiver reboot. Adds to the fun of the flight.

LMAO!

Figured it was worth noting that so someone enjoying some unexpected fun doesn't come back with a pitchfork looking for me.

I'm calling you out wood. Where's the pics and vidz? You gonna just bait us like that and then point and laugh?

I want to see UAE sand being blown upwind with that thing on my desk by Monday morning!

Hope the maidens when smooth brother. Looking forward to seeing the look on Tareq's face when he asks to fly it and you say "no". LMAO! I'm really interested to see how this one turns out.

Hi guys

It is a little pointless posting pictures.... they are all the same!!!
Until you add your equipment, that is.

I have done the main frames, ready to start the servos. I thought i would jump ahead and finnish the tail, as the tail drive shaft looks a little vulnerable, until it gets into the tail boom.

I have a question regarding the tail gear meshing.
The instructions only talk about shimming the gear on the output shaft left and right.... with the correct backlash, MY gears look a little off centre, relative to each other.

What would be better, would be to add a 0,1 or 0,2mm shim to push the gear on the input shaft rearwards and then a little left on the output shaft gear... Same backlash, but 'centred' gears.

Anyone needed to do this?

Regards
Paul

It's not about a visual match really. You're looking to insure that the edges of the gears are lined up to insure FULL contact on the gear surfaces. Centered or not is not the goal. The goal is to close the gap in mesh with the best line-up of the teeth. If the gears turn each other there is no "center" to look for. Just full contact.

Hope that ramble made some kind of weird sense.

Hi

I think we are trying to achieve the same thing...

I called it 'centred' you called it 'full contact' and 'edges longed up'

Did you only need left/right?

Thanks for the reply.

Hi guys

New day, more lighting, more time, less German beer and all is well.

I used my old trick of shims from Hirobo and Raptor. They are 0,12mm and 0,15mm. Makes for a perfect job.

Just needed left/right, no forward/backwards..... gear contact is great and backlash is perfect. These gears are very 'round'.... the same backlash all the way round. Fantastic.

Regards
Paul
