You said it mates! We all feel like 18! and it's a great feeling right? Very Happy

Hey that is a good idea, most of the time I am groping on the ground with a magnet looking for lost screws.

You are right chopper this is a great forum with a lot of guys out there ready to help. Smile

working on the floor is a method i find works well. the problem starts when the job is done and i need to get up again.
i am just wondering what the wife would say if she caught me using a towel under a heli repair. she thinks ive gone mad anyway because of the helicopters.

Of course, then you have to find then in among the loops! Not easy for those of us who need high + correction for close up.

I wonder: would one of those "driveway sweeper" magnets would serve to police up the little metal bits?

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good flight!

Hi Friends,

I am now in the process of repairing the heli. Since I have no ready access for spares I am turning out my own!

Now the tail boom I have made is heavier than the original as the tube wall thickness is almost double. No doubt this will make it tail heavy. Therefore I will have to re-balance the heli, I presume hanging it from the main shaft without the rotor head assembly.

My question to the forum is when balancing what should I aim for, absolute level or a slight nose down attitude?

By the way I was able to obtain 5mm and 3mm SS rods which are bang on for the main shaft and feathering shaft. Laughing

Any advice will be great, thanks.

Sude

hi sude
i read a post on helifreak about a guy that made a tail boom from a hollow knitting needle and somebody else used a carbon fibre arrow shaft. some people are very inventive when repairing their machines.

Hi sude,

I always aim for dead level, but a little nose heavy is better than tail heavy if you are flying in wind.

Tom.

Hi Friends,

Thanks for the quick replies Chopper54 and Tom appreciate it. I think I will go for slight nose heavy like I used to on my airplanes.

Friends remember I started this discussion because of the bad vibes I had with about 30% throttle? Now as I said I replaced the main shaft with SS rod I bought and spun the rotor for the full range of the stick NO VIBES! I now believe the main shaft would have been slightly bent EX-FACTORY.

I read some thing to this effect in another discussion (can not remember under what topic). This is some thing to watch out for if some one has got a bad case of vibes on an out of the box machine.
