Default belt still good?

hi, i just had my first pilot error crash today, examined everything, and i found that my belt has some fraying on the side. all the teeths are still good, belt only used for less than 10 flights, lubed with silicon oil, idler gear removed. is this belt still good to use or am i better off getting a new one?

Hi chopperdudes,
This question seems to evove mucho voodoo in this forum. My own policy is if I have parts out and they are in any way questionable new parts go back in. Sez to do this in the instructions. I'd be concerned that the belt is running to one side. My solution is the idler pulley from the MX450 http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLBJ8&P=Z which drops right in to where the Align idler pulley locates. Now my belt frays evenly :? The Gates upgrade belt http://www.tech-mp.com/trex_450_parts.php part#T-HT1003 makes me feel better.

It's sad that governments, LHS's, and manufactures are chiefed by the double-tongues. There is iron in your words of personal belt maintenance practice for all Helifreaks to see. And so there is iron in your words of belt maintenance advice to others. No signed paper can hold the iron, it must come from men.



chopperdudes,
Are you running the plastic pulleys?

You say it has all its teeth.
If you are happy the belt wont break, then it will be fine.

i think i'm running metal (the ones which came with the V2 anyways). yes, my belt has all the teeths and all teeths seems to be square actually, it's just that there's yellow-thread-like-things coming out from the some places one the side of the belt.

Then try a new belt looser to the gear and see if the deterioration abates. Something I will always remember from one of Finless' vids is that fellows tail belt problems were far more often from too tight than too loose.
