I just got my Logo 550sx flying and I am amazed by this heli., My question: is a anti static wiring set required?

Hi

If it's needed on the 600, 600sx, 600se, 500, 500se...... I would say YES on a 500sx.

Have fun. I have a 600 and love it.

Regards
Paul

I have about 14 flights on mine. No antistatic wiring yet. I probably will come winter when there is low humidity in my area. Having never witnessed it, I don't completely buy it. I've never had static issues with belt tails. I will however for piece of mind.

It would have been nice if it were included. The cost could have been added to the kit price.

550sx is my new favorite.

I have a few Logo's, and they all have the anti static wires. 2 years ago, I was flying a 600se without the wire and lost signal to the heli, not saying it was because of static but there was no other reason. I installed the wire and didn't change anyting else, never had a problem after that, I still have the heli and it flies great!
For the money, its great insurance! I won't fly without it!

Thats a big YES
I had static,very bad static with my 600sx and It was grounded,turns out the tail out put shaft was not grounded right and caused all sorts of grief for the v-bar,it was so bad it almost caused a crash,make sure u have continuity at the tail shaft all the way to the motor.

Okay you guys convinced me. Did you buy the kit or make your own with some light gauge wires and some crimped micro leads?

I read to bond the aft belt idler bearing shaft to the tailboom and the fwd tailboom to the motor mount.

I bought one and made one. Idler to boom (ensure connection between tail shaft and boom there, then boom to motor mount.

Yes. A little wire, ring terminals and some sheet metal screws. You can get everything you need at a Home Depot.
While you're there, maybe you could find some wing nuts so you don't need tools to adjust the belt tension.

Thanks guys. Wing nuts for belt tension. That's clever. They have 3mm size wing nuts?

Bob, that's actually a good idea. No need to use tools for things adjustable. Maybe nylon winged holder to put 3mm nyloc nut inside.

Ch-47, people for some reason have a hard enough time with a metal nut and bolt. A nylon bolt and nut would be problematic and not advised by Mikado.

Nylon insert wingnuts are made in inch sizes but I haven't seen metric. Some Loctite could do the trick. Heck, for someone who doesn't mind using sheet metal screws on their heli a little glue shouldn't put you off.

He's not talking about a nylon bolt and nut.

Yes, a Nylon bolt and nut is a pretty poor idea.

And BTW, is the Antistatic kit on a Logo 500 advised by Mikado?
