Another ENV build question
Have my motor (os speed 91) installed and now the fan is hitting the fan housing. Did notice that the clutch seemed to stick out from the bell just a bit. Does the motor need to get pushed up more or should I trim the fins on the fan to get them to stop hitting the housing. Thanks

Take the washer off below the hub.

Jeremy if you are refering to the washer that came with the motor. i already have it inside the hub with the nut holding the hub on the motor shaft. Maybe I need to put it back under the hub?? Hope not that clutch was a nightmare to get into the hub.

If you tighten the screws to the fan to much it will warped the plastic. Check to make sure there not to tight and the plastic isn't warped.

Jeremy thanks for all your help with my build issues. I spoke with brian at CY today and he straightened a few things out for me. I missed putting in the washer below the fan hub so assembly was too low. In my defense that step was never written into the directions. I also may have screwed up my clutch and hub as I ground it out a bit to get the clutch to go in it. Gonna run it up and see if its solid, if not i'll replace. Ended taking it apart and putting the washer in and everything lines up now. Thanks again for your help. I'm sure I'll have a few more questions along the way.

One more question. I'm torn between 710 or 690 mains for this heli. Im running an os speed 91 in it. I like to fly mosty sport and light 3d. I guess I ask cause I don't want a really sluggish heli if I put the 710's on. What do you think I should be running.
Thanks again.

I would reccomend the 710's. I had the 690's and it flew fine. Since I started the 710's it has been a blast. It is not sluggish at all unless you set it up with too much collective or cyclic pitch.
You would notice the autos are very nice as well.
I run 1950 in IU 1/2 and it flips/rolls with no sluggish tendencies.

I also like the 710's v2 over the 690's v2. The 710's v2 float very nice and make the heli fly bigger then the 690's v2. If you are hard on the sticks you might wanna try the 690's. but both blades fly very good. I remember Curtis saying in windy conditions he liked the 690's over the 710's.

I personally like the 690 V2's. It lets the nitro breath a bit better. They also do inverted autos nice as well. The collective seems to be a bit more linear to me as well.. You can't go wrong with either as it really boils down to personal preference. Of course Jeremy, ya never know about that boy!!!

I am with Marshall on this. I am running a OS91HZR,and I love the way the 690v2 fly. Don't get me wrong, I also liked the 710v2 but for me at least the motor seemed a lot happier with the 690v2. I also agree they handle wind better. I also really like the way they auto, I think they pick up speed better in an Auto because of less mass to rotate.
