Sorry Rick I don't use bailout, I can't see how that would make a difference unless he had a metal to metal issue ?

Neither the CNC or plastice blade grip assemblies come with a spacer to take up the slack.

When I mount the tail boom to the heli frame and mesh the gears should the rotor tail blades rotate smoothly by hand or will there be a bit of a notch feeling when you rotate it?
Hey Rick,
I have a new build and the crown gear to front transmission bevel gear has notches in them. I suspect the imperfection is coming from the crown gear. Also the main gear wobbles due to moulding imperfection problem. At the end of days, they are plastic.

Re: Gaui X3

If I pulled the tail boom out just slightly the gears felt smooth. Then I pushed the boom in using a piece of paper to gap the gears it had a notch type feeling which seemed odd. After a few flights I am sure the teeth will mesh better so I am not concerned. I just need to solder my esc connector on today and than I can start doing the Ikon setup.

Re: Gaui X3

Hey Rick there is supposed to be a small amount of space to set the mesh properly. Kind of a notchy feeling is a tad to tight. Remove pressure til it feels smooth as you did then snug up.

Re: Gaui X3

There is also the chance of the gears just needing to mesh in properly, mine was a little noisy for about three flights now its smooth and quiet.

Re: Gaui X3

Jimmy, when I installed the boom I set the gap using a piece of paper. I guess I can pull it a slight bit.

Paper test it is the way to go. My master told me. If it's too far out on the mesh, once you set the screw on the boom, the boom is done and then the mesh on the transmission gear might wear out faster.

I did my setup in two stages. First FBL using a Rx battery pack, then ESC. Heat is being generated and build up while bird is being setup stationary on the table and I try to avoid that even though it does seem to be low chance to catch fire. So, I would just heat up one (FBL) instead of two.

Another reason is to isolate problem in case FBL can not be setup properly. Also, I have seen some posts where ppl busted their servos when they suspect plugging in high voltage output from ESC into the FBL/Rx. Know your voltage and polarity on anything any device. I know the IKON has polarity protection on the V2 but habit is habit.

If you play them right, you'll have a beautiful bird very soon. Good luck.

Re: Gaui X3

That is a new to me. I have never heard of people having issues over heating the system while going through the setup. That seems odd unless you are running the motor or you did not spec the components correctly. I will definitely check my settings on the esc before I running the system.

The Ikon unit is new to me but I have gone some of the setup and decided to change the servo arms to the breakaway arms so I will start over again. It will be good practice. I just built a leveling table to use with the Soko setup tool I bought. This should make life easier with the setup.

Re: Gaui X3

rcwng, if your heating up while setting it up you must remember do not plug the servos in until the proper hz and voltage are selected I am surprised that the servos work. Also depending on your motor choice you may have to program the esc as well to except the proper timing and the number of poles. Fire????
