Hi there. I just registered and will likely be posting more.

I just bought a Skyartec Wasp X-3V. Spent some time fiddling with it. Manual is not so good. I did get it just off the ground, but it tilted and the blade hit the carpet. It now seems to have disconnected the main rotor from the drive gear.

Does anyone have experience with this unit?

Hello OTSteve and welcome to the forum.

I've no experience with that heli, however, more details about the problems and photos will help us to help you.
So, first: why did you need to fiddle with it, what was the original problem?

Second: The drive system for all rc helicopters are very similar, the main drive transfers power from the main gear to the main shaft via a clutch-bearing [one way bearing]. Strip down and inspect the one-way-bearing, it may-well be slipping within its housing.

I didn't fiddle with it. I was flying it and it tipped over and the blade hit the carpet.

I'll pull it apart and inspect.

Welcome into the fascinating world of heli's.

As Burgess said,you will find that a photo of the problem will get more (and perhaps better) reply's as it is much easier to understand an issue if you can see what the OP is talking about.

Good Luck!

Several basic designs of RC helicopters exist, of which some (SPAM LINK (edited out by admin)) are more maneuverable than others. The more maneuverable designs are often harder to fly, but benefit from greater aerobatic capabilities.

mmmmm been thinking about it ....

I don't know the model but thiking that general checks of shaft and how the motor transmits rotation to it ...

Has any gear moved so it no longer is being driven ?

Taking care not to break anything - can you turn shaft without motor turning ? Does it only free-turn one way ?

Are the rotors sitting higher than they were before ?

How does the shaft lock to the main gear ?

It sounds like you need an exploded parts diagram to illustrate each part so you can start to identify where the problem may be ...

I assume you have a full manual for the model ? if not then here is the manual :

www.skyartec.com/.../PDF_manual/...manual/.../WASP%20X3_manual.pdf‎


And I see it has a one-way bearing .... this means that you should be able to free-turn the main rotors one way but not other. If you can turn both ways without motor or main gear turning - then the one-way bearing is broken.... or any screw / bolt used to lock shaft to gears / head.

Well Nigel it's the link in the text there. . . (electric rc airplanes) . . . Looks innocent but it's just an add that spammers put in - has nothing to do with the thread. I have changed the link here - nothing for sale it's just me having a little evening fun.

Tks Tombo ... to be honest - I only click links in posts when it has something I am actually interested in ... had too many mishaps in past opening crap !! I still have a PC at home that has a knackered OS because of a b****** who sent out so-called photos via a pals address he'd scammed ... can't sort it as it has my old company archive etc. on it !

All this talk about tined meat making me peckish...gonna go make some chips.
Still, I suppose opening a tin's a lot easier than trying to catch fresh lamb on the hill round here...when I can baa, baa, baa, baaly catch me breath. I've often been stung by wasps, but never been bitten by a spam tin, especially with the drive on recycling everything, they get rounded up every week. 'Laughing'

OTSteve how's the fault finding going with your wasp?

Thanks Silhouette,

I know how tough it is to keep on top of forum spammers. You're doing a great job.

Tom.
