Yes Sir Chuck
I do have thoughts on the crash and am making effort to rectify. I don't wanna say as I'm the only one I've heard with that problem. I'm already lives in the looney bin and don't want folks to find another place for me. They might want to euthanise. My heli pitched foward and could not be righted.
According to the sound in the badly focused vid, from the time of the malfunction it was 2 secondes to the crash. Investigation.. the bell crank for the elevator came out...Investigation.. that screw only has3 threads extending into the elevator arm..investigation... the screw still screws into the elevator arm, meaning none of the plastic pulled out under force. I checked my spares and the screw is the same length in the packet. SCREWTOOSHORT from manufacturers.I put the screw in the bell crankalone and tried to screw it in; yes and then it tightened against the stop in the bell crank, giving the illusion the screw hasgonea good way in..only 3 threads outside. Maybe the added weight tested all areas.I will have to change it to a machine screw as I can't find any 2mm self tapping screws longer than the stock of 11mm long. I found machine screws 20mm long from bolts depot.com. The original screw seems identical to the futaba servo mounting screw.
