Hi all, I need some help from the pros. I purchased a Trex 500 hybrid/clone from a buddy a couple months ago. I am taking apart the heli for shipping and I am stumped. It is a belt drive. I have the blades, and entire head out, and now it is time for the tailboom. I loosened the screws and got the belt off the pulley system, but now I can't remove the boom because the pulley system is one piece and I don't see how to get the belt from around the pulley system. Can anyone please help. I need to get this packaged and shipped before vacation.

Sorry if I sound like a moron, I am still new to helis

Fly it like your stole it!!!!!

Can you not just remove the forward boom block screws and leave the tail together as a complete unit? It should be easier than trying to seperate the belt and boom from the block and pulley. I hope that this helps.

The boom is one unit don't take the belt off it is all connected to the plastic housing in the front you have to take out the 5 screws on the side frame and the unit will slide out

no babe i swear i sold my other heli to buy this one :)

Thanks guys, I finally did just find a video. I didn't realize there was a front boom block that completely seperated from the frame. Looks like about 8 screws and I'm home free. Thanks for the replies.
