Yes please. For some of us who have never operated an IC engine, I would love videos of starting, tuneing, breaking in, maintaining, etc. Anything associated with running one of these. I am sure there are plenty of guys like me who only have electric experience. Thanks for the contribution.

Any chance you could do a short vid showing how to properly set up your throttle linkage? This is one aspect that I am unsure of.

Thanks

Put up engine starting - no big deal for ex-Raptorites but glow virgins might find it of interest !

That's very neat - I set up something similar with an RCA hifi plug but the ground connection wasn't working - maybe too much Loctite on the engine mount bolt so have to sort that out

Would love to see a video on how to install the torque tube but I guess it's too late since you've already built your chopper.

it's easy to install.
first measure the middle, then put blue loctite 5 cm away from the middle and install the bearing. Once it's stuck, you can put washing up liquid on the plastic part that goes around the bearing. for introducing the TT, use the plastic protection tube to push... and you're done. Install the tail boom into the frame, install the tail case and screw it.

Thought I'd do a video of changing the front bevel gear and found a(nother) potential souce of binding which could cause tail issues - hope it's not too long-winded

Mercuriell, WOW... I have not got a gear like that that was warped in that way. I have changed 4 myself. Yours looked warped possibly by heat or something?

Anyway nice idea for the fix BUT..... I would worry that the gear would float now and possibly move against the bevel drive gear thus leaving no backlash.

As a tip I would then use green locktite or thin CA to secure the inner race of the bearing to the plastic so the gear wont move forward. Just an idea to save premature wearing of the gears should the one gear move forward.
