Talking First auto

Did my first autos yesterday - what a blast! All went well except keeping it on it's skids - they are a bit narrow (landing on soft grass)... So it tipped over and bent the main & spindle shafts. But now that they were bent I just went up and did it again some times until the vibrations made it unflyable

Today I had an unwilling auto, as my one-way gave up on me. This is my 3rd one way that does this... but went quite well this auto also

Does anyone know of any aftermarket one-ways for the 450X? (incl the sleeve)

The original part is no longer thrustworthy for me (Please don't tell me how many hundreds of flights you have had with zero problems)


Btw I must say I like the Revolution main blades better than the Rail ones, the Revos IMO are much more stable (easier to do stationary flips, rolls etc).

Do you use an type of grease on the OWB? That is the cause of many one way failures as grease is thick enough to block the rollers from functioning properly. I have found that oil works good for lubrication without effecting the one-way's rollers movement but needs to be applied every 30 flights or so. Luckily our heli allows for dropping a couple of drops of oil on the one way without disassembing it so that is not a problem for me.
I have also run many OWBs on the 450x dry without any problems. Do your bearings slip from the sleeve or do they just lock-up? Many of the times it is just the sleeve that needs replacement and the actual bearing can be reused.

I've ran it stock, and cleaned then special one way lube... fails either way. Suddenly no drive...

No 3rd party product?

Thx man! Sorry, this was supposed to be in the "what did you do today" tread. Not much piccy contributions here

Will the MH one-way fit my Lynx slant gear? I guess not since it has 5 mount holes vs. 4 on the Lynx...

^^ Nice. Does that Microheli canopy give you extra space for the battery?

I find that exact canopy pretty tight, very good viz in bright lighting though.

Default Happy Canada Day!!

Enjoyed our National Holiday today by taking my two birds out for some fresh air! No training skids and 4 packs each! And most important of all, no crashes.

Here is a pic of mine. I have just finished it (except for slant gear). I bought the conversion kit for my 4503D but put the metal parts on my 450X (the plastic bits will go on my 3D). Had it out on a test run this morning and put 6 bats through it.

First day out with my prototype custom canopy. I also discovered the rpm limit of the stock tail assembly (using the speedup gear) when my friend Carter did a spectacular overspeed and the tail went bye-bye. :eek: Interestingly, this thing autos like a feather when the tail is gone. No other damage other than the tail (which we never found).

It was a fun day. :cool:

Thanks! Yes, it's epoxy resin and fiberglass, pulled from my own mold. Plenty of room for a 6S 1350 pack in either stick or brick configuration. Fits stock and Lynx frames, but with the stock frames I had to space out the canopy posts about 4mm since it's a wider canopy.
