I don't know where that drawing is but it's pretty straight forward.

From the head out: O-ring/shims(2-4)/step washer(steps towards bearing)/grip bearing/grip bearing/large washer/thrust bearing(three parts)/small washer(doesn't slide onto feathering shaft)/socket head cap screw.

That was from memory so I'd check the exploded view diagram to confirm. I may have reversed the large washer and thrust bearing.

Good to see you here, Jack.

Sokal, this is good and all but, if you want your vids to stand out more you need to start a new thread so you will have control of it. This is still inside skigolfmike's thread. Start your own and then we can get Finless to sticky it.

I should add that somewhere along the way I lost the ability to edit the original post, So it would probably be better to start a new thread.

Mike, when I asked Finless to sticky Sokal's vid thread also mentioned you could not edit your sticky post he said you should be able too

If not, maybe pm him directly to clear it up?


Can't believe how fast he has responded on both ocassions now.......you know he's gotta be super busy. Not that it has to be said (we all know) Thumbs up to Finless

Been watching your videos on Youtube (just watched the one on landing/decel) and just want to thank you soooooo much for taking the time out to make these videos. I don't have a real heli yet but I tried your tactics in Real Flight and they're helping.

Default The Blade 400 Bible

Some of you probably saw this on the RC Groups forum.. but I put together and organized a LOT of info on the Blade 400... I call it my Blade 400 bible... just a gathering of info.. not much credit goes to me but from all of you. I started it just for myself in my research phase.. but then thought it might be helpful to others.

I update it fairly often

http://www.slyster.com/heli/blade400bible.pdf

Maybe add it to the links at the top of this sticky?

Thanks for the doc Slyster! I find it helpful. I was a little disappointed when I had trouble with the link a few days ago, but now it works and the info for a lot of things I had to search for before are already there!

Slyster...

Why not make that a static page instead of a PDF download if it is updated fairly often??

G,day guys. I'm just getting back into heli's and have bought a Blade 400. I've owned a few heli's in the past but never bothered to learn anything about them(lazy). I have my gain down to 70% in HH in the TX but still get tail wag. I have noticed on the Gyro itself that the gain pot is set half way between the + and -. Is this where it should be or should it be set all the way to the minus? Also my pushrod for the tail is set on the 4th hole out from the output shaft where is I notice a lot of guys saying it should be on the 3rd hole, will this also help the tail wag? Sorry for the basic questions but I really want to learn properly this time.
Thanks, Matt

I have a blade 400 3D. I made homemade training gear out of wooden dowels and styrofoam balls. I cut a 48" dowel in half to get 2 24 inch training gear dowels. DO I need longer training gear or is 24" fine? Do you do training gear length by the main rotor length?
