I might be getting a used Fury Extreme, anything to watch out for (apart from spares! )?

It comes with a YS91 so am I even going to struggle getting spares for the motor if it needs it?

Thanks for that that's great!

Are the servo output bearing supports essential? Just makes changing servo arms etc harder plus it would save a bit of weight if I took them off.

Essential???...I doubt it.

However, I am surprised that this is not a feature that all helis use as it takes any servo movement from rubber mounts, etc out of the equation. Linkage length remain as adjusted no matter what the servo is doing.

If their weight is the issue for you, you are a far better heli pilot than I

Other way round I think!

So on my first hover the RX power lead pulled out (school boy error!) ending up in a minor boom strike but I managed to fix it.

Second hover was going well till I did some pirouettes and stripped the crown gear! Wasn't even a fast piro or aggressive stop! I did notice that the gear mesh could have been a bit tighter but I wouldn't have called it loose! Maybe the gear had gone brittle over the years if it's not been replaced in a while or is the crown gear a known weak point?

In my experience, the crown gear requires some fiddling. You can adjust it up or down via shims and you can move the pinion in or out. Make sure there is no slop on the pinion in and out adjustment once you get it set. I've had some experience with boom strikes ... ... A boom strike will also jar the pinion on the crown. Misalignment and a boom strike, ah, well err.....

BTW, I've also found that if you need to replace a part, buy two replacements. It seems that having a spare on the shelf usually means that you will never need one again....

The crown gear was fine after the boom strike, it was the stopping the pirouette that knocked a few teeth off.

I see in the manual there are optional shims to lower the main and crown gear IF the mesh is too tight but I can't seem to see any on mine (I didn't build it) so I'm not sure how I would get it tighter. If I move the pinion forward it wouldn't line up with the crown gear. I'll wait till I get a new one because the old one might just be worn and simply installing a new one might give me the correct mesh.

Quick question, which way round do the clutch driver dampeners go? I'm guessing the pins push on the shorter rubber when starting and the longer rubber when in flight?

The dampers have a small dimple molded in. That dimple should be facing upward and the engine should, when running, be pushing on the longest portion of the damper.

Check it....Check it. I just looked up an MA manual. The dimples on the dampers ARE supposed to face upward. However, the running engine pushes on the SHORT SIDE of the damper.

Sorry about that.....

Ah yes I found it in the manual but the running engine will push on the long side of the dampener, short side for starting.

I have another question, when tightening the engine fan, what's to stop it pulling on the crank and compressing the rear engine bearing?!

The force being applied to the fan goes through the front bearings inner ring directly to the front of the crank where it steps down to inner diameter of the front bearing. No pressure is being applied to the rear bearing.

Ah ok I didn't realise the crank butted up against the front bearing.
