Fit second bearing to torque tube drive shaft. Equally space the two bearings ( by eye).

Hover: vibe score=0.2

analysis gives 0.8 on motor, head and tail

Fit esc programming link. Test. Still have to disconnect receiver to activate software.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! So here we are in December already! It won't be long now, Christmas is only 21 days away!

Whiplash Electric: On holdÖInstead, I used the main gear for Bobís gasser as he hasnít ordered a gear for it yet, (other priorities got in the way). I also found the bolt going through the gear hub was sheared off? I gave him my gear set in order for the three of us [Mark, Bob, & myself] could enjoy some flying this last weekend.

increase gap between motor pinion and Main. Set much more than paper test.
Shorten Torque Tube by 1mm ( Need to cut to go shorter).
lube head with vaseline.
pack gap at front of motor mount.
vibe: 0.4 first hover
0.2 second hover.

see up-down motor vibe . this may be play in motor mount. need to bolt down front of mount.

front of motor mount now screwed down. vibe=0.2 on ground (vibe analysis shows motor up-down vibe more than halved) slight...

Thanksgiving is only 11 days away! Gobble! Gobble!


Whiplash Electric: I ordered the gears that stripped, but havenít done anything to it. I need to send the CC ESC in for repairs.

Compass 3D+: This is still on the waiting list...back burner.

Rave: I ordered all the parts needed to put this heli back together...however, I need to buy a new muffler. In the crash, the header was bent fairly well. It needs to be replaced. Work more overtime...yuck!...
