Hi, i am a newbie. I have done plemty of planes in the past, and plenty of toy heli's , and dual rotor stuff. this is my first "real" heli. I have been practicing with fms and clearview for weeks and can fly about , hover, land back at my feet and even do a bit of inverted flight and rolls etc in 3d mode.
I did all of the setup and checks as per the esky manual, and then tied the heli to a hover platform to check alignment and try my hovering on the real thing. However after a few minutes it started to come loose, and tilted over. I tried to adjust whilst I powered done, but the blades hit the tail-bar. (now I can start on my first re-build, before even flying it once !!)
I had already bought 10x spare blades just in case. Now I need a new tail-bar, main gear and blades.
Is there any disassembly procedure I can follow, just so I don't pull off items that are hard to re-adjust. ??.
Also what special tools should I invest in. I have bought a set of esky tools, mainly hex drivers. I will find a ball-joint pliers. do I need any special thread glue ? any other tools that I might need ??

Hi chansen1953,

As well as the things you have outlined a pitch gauge is essential as is a swash leveler, You may be able to improvise on the swash leveler, but the pitch gauge really has to be bought. Ebay is a good source for these. It need not be too expensive.

I've used an allan key (hex wrench?) clamped to the mainshaft to level the swash. I have also used a packing sleeve under the swash to hold it level while I reset the links. That's my favourite. I am not keen on the types that fit over the top of the swash.

However, the choice is yours.

two things I would do ... get rid of the tether to a table, get proper Hex driver tools that will last.
The tether will upset the balance and natural tendency of the machine. We used to use tail lines held by a friend in the old days ... disaster waiting to happen ! Better to fit training legs / gear and trust those.

Most Kit supplied hex driver tools or named are soft and round out quite quickly. You can of course use a grinder to grind back a bit to get good hex again, but only so many times.
