Sokal, on a side note. When you add vids (update) the first page to keep all your vids nice and neat and in one place. It will not show up as new to us. So, you should post a seperate thread just saying sticky vid thread updated or something like that, just FYI

Didnt know if you knew that or not, so I thought I'd just throw it out there.

That works too, LOL.

Just making sure you knew if you edit the first post it doesnt show as new to the rest of us. Cant thank you enough for your time and effort (even though I have not watched the updates yet) will do in the morning.

I thnk my paranoia about the belt is subsiding, BUT I know it will come SOON so if you can put the belt replacement on your list, I would appreciate it.

That's kinda mean to stomp on Sokal's work like that. Besides, I'm a simple redneck that dont like to read. Keep the vids coming Sokal.

Okay I watched the tail vid and I have questions.

1) if you were just replacing the belt ONLY would you still have to remove the main and tail gears, main shaft to get the belt pulley out? or would it be possible just to get it loose enough just to slip the belt over it without removing?

2) I'm assuming the bearing you removed that you had to split the case does not have to be removed unless it needs replaced, yes?

I think thats it for now.......but that does clear a lot up. Thank you.

it is possible may be a bit harder but can do

removing the gear is not hard just remove the bolt at the bottom and disconect the servos from swash and shaft and head to swash will come out together then push out main gear and tail gear.

and you dont have to split case unless you have to replace bearing

Socal you rock! Thanks for all your efforts.

In your hover control vid, you talk about adjusting the swash to help maintain hover control. Is that adjusting the physical heli or via the Dx6i Tx interface?
