Unfortunatley the exploded view in the manual isn't very helpful.

Any help would be greatly appreciated (until now i'm not even sure if the parts wouldn't end up costing more than a new pnp version)
The first post in this thread has some video's of the head disassembly. If you still need more help then what's in the video, which part of the head would you like a picture of?

The part where the linkages go from the blade grips to the swashplate or if possible a closeup from the part above the swash from different directions would be nice.
My problem is that i'm not sure if haven't lost some parts from that area in the crash because the head got torn apart pretty badly..
Too bad there is no complete building manual in the box , I'm beginnig to understand the people who say rtf sucks and you should build a kit yourself. Guess i would have it easier to repair if i had once build it from scratch...

hey man...I'm on my first CP heli, and I just COMPLETELY broke down and rebuilt my head. It was frustrating at first, but I decided to just take my time and pay my dues. My first rebuild was a complete success...no issues. I referenced some pictures in the manual and some that I found online. I'm glad I started with the MSR as my first heli...that gave me a taste of what I should be expecting. Stick with it man.....you'll get it nailed. Videos and tips from QueadlunnRau and others have been super helpful!

Default Exploded view diagram

The best way to see the exploded view of the SR is to download the pdf of the manual from Horizon Hobby.
Using Acrobat Reader you can zoom in to get a good look at the areas you want.
For parts of the head I did this then took a screen shot and printed that out.

Thank Q for the great pics! I just replaced my o-rings and feathering shaft and the help on this thread was great! I just didn't understand why E-flite would not include any step washers in the feathering shaft kit or the o-ring kit?!?!

I just wanted to stick my head in here and offer up a huge thanks to QueadlunnRau for taking the time to make those videos. When i crashed my heli, it was pretty tore up and my buddy was like 'now your gonna have to learn how to fix it' lol.

I actually am mechanically inclined but when it comes to helicopters i can understand that when your new like i am, your better off learning 'the right way'.

So i've been flying with a bent tailboom for the last three weeks and decided that it was time to watch the tail dissassembly video. 30 mins later , i have a new tailboom installed easy as pie.

Can i throw in a request for a 'getting 0 at midstick' video? Ok ill shut up now


Thanks again QuedlunnRau!!!

I did notice that in the E-Flite SR manual, the page with the exploded view shows the blade grips in a leading position, not the trailing position as built from E-Flite, unless I'm looking at it wrong.

I just noticed this too and I have yet to maiden this thing.

Is it supposed to be leading edge or trailing edge control?

Post this in the main SR forum and you'll get a better response.
Can this post be moved ?


If your more specific with your request we will get you underway :-)
