Hello,

I am in the middle of building a new GSR260Z FBL Sport and am having trouble stopping the fan shroud from rubbing on the fan.

Has anyone else experienced this issue. I have tried as many combinations of position as possible with no luck.

Help please

I have not build that machine, but looking at the manual it seems there would be 3 options:

1) Engine/fan too high
2) Engine/fan too low
3) warped/distorted shroud

If you install only one half of the shroud, you should be able to see what is the problem - small adjustments/ideas could come into mind.

Thanks Mario

I will have a look at the half shroud at a time option (I never thought of that).

I may need to just warm the shroud a little if it is out of shape.

thanks - the JR Vibe and other JR helis have a relatively small gap around the fan for the shroud to fit - hence the idea of putting one side at a time to figure it out.

Good luck with the rest of your build

Thanks guys problem solved.

Seems it was slightly compressed from being packaged. Gave it a little bend and stretch and its perfect now.

Final words. Big big helicopter!
