Smile Tourque Tube Bearing

Hey has anyone installed a second bearing for the tourque tube? I am going to do this but heard you can't get the pin out of the shaft to install it. I think I will put one bearing at 210mm and the other one at 230mm sound about right don't think installing them at the same distance would be good for harmonics? Hope someone has done this and can share his or her's experience. Thanks Bill Burke

I haven't tried the 2nd bearing but did try to remove the splines one day
The spline retaining pin is flattened at either end (like a rivet) - it is also very hard steel - you will need a Dremel to grind it flat enough for the 2nd bearing to slip over - I don't think you need have concerns wrt the spline - it's a tight interference fit within the shaft - probably worth a spot of CA in the bearing mounts, blue Loctite the bearings onto the TT and plenty of spray lube down the hole otherwise the bearings will pop out during insertion into the boom.

Post Clutch bearing housing

Hello there and thanks for the instructive videos,

I have a question regarding step 4.
After joining the two halves of the clutch bearing block, I notice that there is still quite som wobble, in the clutch bell and gear assembly. It seems as if the two bearings do not fit tightly enough into the block. I assume this may constitute a problem later when torque is transfered from the "wobbling" clutch gear on to the main drive gear.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it really going to be a problem, or will it be stabilized by the turning engine, clutch and bell, later during operation?

As usual, your videos are VERY helpful and thank you for doing them.

I am about to buy a 600N and also noticed (I think), one has a metal tail gearbox and the other is plastic. Is the plastic box ok you think?

Also, CF conducts electricity, does the G10 frame do this as well. I think it's G10... does the Standard frame do this as well?

Starter.... Thats not my starter but a friend of mines (fireup)... He bought a CHEAPO starter but used a 4S 2200ma lipo to power it! I was suprised how well it worked... He got the cheapo starter at tower hobbies.

Plastic gear box is OK trust me.... The metal you see is the torq tube upgrade or comes with the PRO version of the kit. You can also get a metal belt drive kit which is the same as the 600E upgrade.

OK, I trust you. What about the fiberglass frames conducting electricity? Do they or does the CF frames conduct more?

Thanks,
Lane

CF frames DO CONDUCT but the FP frames should not unless they have some CF in them somewhere. Carbon conducts fiberglass is an insulator.

Finless, I am installing the fanshroud - the issue I have is that shroud is sitting to low and i need to sand away about 1/16th of the carbon fiber frame.

Is that ok?

thank you for your help in advance, BTW the VIDS ROCK!

SItting to low? How do you mean? I hope you didnt forget to leave the black thrust washer between the motor and the fan? If so that will cause the fan to be too low.

I am curious, why no thrust bearings on the main shaft? This thing must pull like crazy. I would put one between the main gear and the middle bearing block, no?

Finless,
the thrust washer is on is on, the flat side of the fan is hitting the top side of the fan shroud, I bought an upgrade to the fan today, and the metal fan works like a charm 10 mins to get the engine in and the shroud mounted. I found that the stock fan was warped after I took it off.

I wonder if Align will send me a new one.

hmmm.

thank you for your help, upgrade part installed and moving on to the next part.

Packet "fin wait, fin close"

Asta.

Red face Thottle Curve

Hi Bob

Just a quick question about your throttle curve you ended up with for Normal setting?

I will be using a Multi-gov but I know you suggest a pitch and throttle curve other than 0 25 50 75 100

I understand the pitch curve with no problem but the throttle curve is in question. I know yours may not

work perfectly for mine but it would be a good start I am using the OS 50 Hyper same as yours. Thanks

again for your hard work.....

Thanks for the great video series (as usual).

Is there any chance that you could do a single video on the non-Pro tail, even if you have to borrow a buddy's heli to do it? I noticed from Align's web site that the non-Pro 600N uses the same dual link system for the tail rotor pitch as the 600N Pro and I'd be curious to know well it works with a belt-driven tail, particularly in setting the belt tension. I have my doubts.
