I flew 450's ( V2 ) for 3 years, the loose belt slapping will cause static, but is worst with carbon booms, with aluminum not so much, I had glitches on occasion and similar unexplained 'hard' landing. Guys use to run WD40 on their belts but I am not a fan of that, because it is a drier agent with minimal lubricant. I bought some silicone spray at Home Depot and shot some into the tube every few flights and never had a glitch ever again. I use to run my belt pretty loose since I do not do 3d with no issues what so ever. My 500 had much worse issues with static but using this spray every few flights and keeping everything lubed cured that also with no ground wire needed.

Re: T-Rex 450 woes

I had the same problem with my boom, I wrapped a thin layer of Teflon thread tap around the ends of the boom then tightened it down. It seems pretty solid now. What RX are you using?
It's okay Pluto, I'm not a Planet either.

I did the same and it did solve the losing problem but for some reason I was still getting glitches. I tried the Teflon spray, worked but not for long. I have tried 2 AR6200, 6110 rxs, all the same result. I tried all the tricks I have read about nothing worked, I have owned over 15 helicopers and this one by far has been the worst. What I don't understand is, from new the first 3 flight's were perfect. Sold my old 450 and then the problems started.

Now with the TT it seems all problem's are fixed (for now, knock on wood).
RC is more addictive than Nicotine...........

Cool. Does that actually work? I can see for discharging the current level of static, but does it actually prevent a BUILD-UP of static?
