Default Blade 360cfx 3s

Is there any replacement main gear from any other heli or manufacturer that will work on the 360cfx 3s? Is it the same as the 360 Fusion or any other of the 360's? I'm desperate !

Yes, it is the same as for Fusion 360, Trio 360cfx 360cfx 6s, and 270cfx. BLH5337

Got it all back together now and find that I am getting tail wag, about 3-6" both ways. I can't control it and have to land. Can anyone suggest some things for me to try for fixing it?

First: this ist typical vor the 3S 360. That's why i went with the 6S machine.
Check the tail, it has to move smooth. Disconnect the tail rod from tail pitch lever and flip the heli to one side. Tail has to Pitch from gravity. Tilt the heli to the other side, tail pitch has to slide to the other side by gravity. If it won't move this smooth, fix mecanical.
If it does, enter the Gain Menu according to the manual. Increase Tail P-Gain If there is a slow wag. Decrease, If there is a fast osciollation.

what The_Fox said. Sometimes if the tail mechanism doesn't all under gravity, its because the ball links are too tight. cut some slots into old ball links (if you have them ... if not, you many need to order some). Insert these into the links and spin around. This will size the links and when you put them back on the ball they will move more freely. This should then solve the gravity problem. The other thing i had to do was rub the shaft the mechanism was sliding on with a paper towel real good (like I was polishing a shoe). Then everything came together for me though I have not had a chance to test yet to see if wag is gone.

The tool for the Ball Linkage is LYNX LX2502. Looks like this:

Thanks for the help guys. I was also reading about this wagging problem on the RC Groups and they indicated that the Tail rotor pitch slider needs to be prevented from spinning. Some folks put a dab of glue in the groove so it wont spin past the pitch lever arms. I will try your ideas first and then check for wag. If that doesn't work then I will try the glue in the roller.

I get about 1" tail wag on mine, stock set up, no mods to the tail. I would be checking the servo without linkages, the linkages, and any play in the tail, including a bent feathering shaft on the tail rotor. good luck...

awesome - but you can make one for free if you already have some left over balls for the model from a previous crash

I am not worthy. I have crashed more than once with only one 360cfx

Well, since this is all i ever wanted to do, (build Scale modells and fly them calm and safe) i have upgradet the AR7210BX coming with the 6S Trio to Pro. I set up the SAFE Option to limit the angles and level the modell when i let the sticks go. I could pick up my sunglasses while the modell will stay in the air. Takeoff and Landing is safe and easy this way. The chance to crash it is pretty poor.
I don't need to solve problems, or do acrobatics, i iust want to enjoy my modells flying smooth and safe. Might appear boring to others, but that's my way.

Since i feel comfortable with this FBL, i have installed one in my Blade 550X aswell. Works fine, i'm going to build a 550size Jet Ranger with Floats. (Surf Rescue Heli).

Two of my servos have gone Kaput probably due to crashes. Is it for real that I have to cut the servo wires to remove them? Please tell me that this was not designed so the wiring looks good but you have to cut the wires to get the servos out.

cut the wires, no, but remove the individual pins from the connectors, yes.

Thanks Kopptrex. Surprised that they routed the wires like that.
