And be sure to use a synthetic grease that will not attack the plastic gearbox. Otherwise the bearing seats will stretch prematurely and the gearbox will ultimately crack more easily with a rather light tail tap when landing.

Re: X-Cell 60

OK, cleaned up the bench and finished up the skeleton. My tail rotor alignment tool should be arriving this week so I can snug the front tail rotor drive gear down and put on the tail boom support.

Re: X-Cell 60

Such a simple airframe.

Refresh my memory- does this heli have an anti-clockwise rotation of the main rotor?(when looked at from above)

Re: X-Cell 60

Nope, clockwise. And yup, sure seems to be a simplistic frame compared to my gasser. Although the gasser is a much simpler belt drive tail while this is torque tube.

Re: X-Cell 60

Well, alignment tool arrived along with a pair of factory ball links to replace the missing one in the kit.
