hi friends...

i have 2 logo 500

Logo 500 A
one of it rotor is spinning smoothly ( by hand ) and you can see it will slowly stop wihout any force holding it.

Logo 500 B
another use is tighter as stop quite fast when use hand...i open up the tail unit to check , lubricate all bearing...seems cant find out whats the issue. When i turn 360 deg, i can feel something not so smooth. But i cant find what whats the issue...

i just worry the Logo B need more power since there's something to hold the smoothly spinning rotor head...

I tested on field , Scorpion 4020-1100kv, after 4 minutes the batteries and motor n esc came down quite hot. Is this the problem from the Belt issue ?

Thanks for feedback

How are your idlers?

Is the belt on them correctly?

i dont think is pinion tight...cos i turn by hand..pinion is not moving..i use a paper to slot in( tightness test )..and the paper did not break ...i think is the belt abit dry..cos when i turn after a complete cycle of the belt..it become slight tight again....
i may get a silicone spray to lube it..

what is a idlers ?

They may not be completely seated which is why they are smooth then tight. Remove them, clear the channel they sit in, reinstall them.
Also check your belt tension. Of course it is better to be a little too tight then too loose...
