Default OXY 2 build tips and tricks

Tail Bell crank.

Do not force it in from the end. This will risk bending these small parts. Once everything is mounted they are a lot stronger.

What I found.

Lay it in close to/on the boom between mount arms. Then slide it out and into position. This will keep from bending parts trying to force it in from the end.

Servo leads.

If you run them over the top on the upper bearing block.

IF you run them on underside of the upper block. You will have more clearance between the shaft and leads than on the top side of the block and the leads to shaft collar clearance.

I used a little hot glue to hold the servo lead in place.

Wow, am a little amazed at the size of size of these things. A big help that some assemblies are predone from the factory.

I'm a little paranoid about not putting loctite on myself in places where the manual says it's already done, but I'll trust Lynx on this

About got the tail assembly done

The pitch slider links do need loctite and are not factory complete.

I have this problem also . It looks like the pins are too wide , when i turn the slider wheel i can feel them grind and sometimes stop the wheel from turning and its not allowing the pitch slider to move freely. I put washers on both pins and its a little bit better , i might try to file the pins on the sides to get them thinner but these things are so small ^^
Edit: the inside of the pitch slider i also filed (as described) and movement is alot better

Permanent.

You will need to spread the Boom clamp box a little wider than you do with a OXY 3, but it is there to prevent the boom from crushing when you clamp down on the boom.

Unintended use I found. Keeps the belt from twisting. IT CAN still be rolled.

Remove:
Remove the tail end block.
Pull belt through to front.
Pull it out using the belt.

DONE

that might work. Mines in so tight the belt might snap

But hey I'm not intending to take it out as this won't be a beater heli for me. I will only be doing what I'm capable of so no crashes

Thanks for the tip though one day maybe hey

Quick question on the tail. Mine is binding throughout the range of motion with no increase or decrease anywhere in the range. I pulled everything apart individually and built everything one by one again checking after each piece is assembled. I have isolated it to the ball links. They are a little too tight. One at a time is not bad but when you combine all 3 at the back of the tail and the one for the servo it adds up quick.

What are you guys using to ream these little guys a little? I definitely don't have a reamer this small and I don't have an extra ball to crimp for a diy reamer.

Been posted earlier they are using the spare ball in the parts bag. Cutting a groove in it. Use a 1.3mm driver to turn it.
