Default Instructions for install anti-static kit 550sx

Bought a used 550sx V2. Included the Mik04358 anti-static kit, but missing instructions.

Can't find pdf online. Anyone have a copy or a link to download?

Thanks

Check the screw that goes to the boom at the front actually touches the boom. With the kit I got the screw wasn't long enough.

So after the install check for continuity from the motor mount to the tail bearing.

Good to know. I will check continuity, and then use a longer self-tapping screw if I need to. Thanks.

Does it matter if the motor mount is not connected to the negative battery wire?

Does the motor take care of the static? or is just basically both ends of the belt (pulleys) discharges it or keeps it from charging?

once I installed the anti static wires, I checked for continuity from the tail to the motor.. that's as far as I went with it. no problems after that.

What the kit does is make sure that the voltage is the same across the whole heli. You need a difference in voltage for current to flow.

Without continuity, nothing flows.

+1 Check the continuity, the included screw on mine was also too short.
