I just crashed my Raptor V30. I need to know if someone has a video of how to change the tail Hub.If you have some pictures showing the replacement would be great. I have the manual but a video or pictures would help me out.

I hope this page helps..

The parts you need to remove are #5 in the pictures.. they are hex bolts on each side of the hub. unscrew them you'll be able to remove the tail hub from tail shaft.

V-2 tail:

Remove the pitch linkage screws at the grips. Remove the blade grips by removing two allen bolts and 1 blade bolt per end. Hold the long setscrew and back off the nut 1/2 turn on each end of the hub. Unscrew the setscrews and pull the hub. Pull the 4 grip bearings(two per grip)

Install new hub and use blue loctite on the long setscrews, tighten up moderately, do not over tighten and stress the hub. The setscrews have to seat into the indents in the tail rotor output drive shaft. Install bearings and new nuts. Seat the nuts onto the hub and do not tighten with torque. Do this while holding the setscrews with an allen wrench.

Reinstall the grips (nuts face inboard), blades (forward blade rotates up into the main rotor) and connect pitch linkage to the grips.

If you remove the drive belt make sure you twist it in the right direction for CCW TR rotation facing the hub.
