Couple Trex 500 flights
Been playing with this Trex 500 belt tail, flybar... had a couple of good flights, then I had a tail grip come off in flight... going to try a few mods with the rebuild and see if I can get it to handle a little better... for a flybar

Watch at YouTube

got alittle more brave with this one.. sorry for the crappy camera work..

and then don't watch if you don't want to hear me say a bad word!

you hear when the tail grip came off.... I hit hold on and off a few times tried to get it flipped back up to auto, but I couldn't

Same BS happened to me. Mine happened on the ground though, stripped out all tt gears, bent tail rotor.. tt was junk. Actually scared the crap out of me, blade grip came flying by my face and I never did find it.

That is when I bought the pro tail hub/grips assy and went back to belt driven.

I'm sure someone will say your probably over torqued those tail bolts, but I sure as hell didn't. Those things are junk.
