    Exceed G2 problem

    I have a new Exceed G2 from xheli. Worked great out of the box, no crashs and no hard landings. I spooled up the other day after about 5 test flights, and the main (top) gear spins in synch with the motor gear, but doesn't spin the main blade shaft. The gears are not stripped, which I thought was the orig problem, but no. When spinning the gears manually w/ my thumb, the bottom gear spins the main shaft, but when I turn the top gear, it doesn't turn the main blades. Any ideas??? Thank you.

    RE: Exceed G2 problem

    I see two screws below the bottom gear (the smaller gear), and they are tight. when i spin that gear w/ my thumb, it spins the main rotors. are there other screws that are for the top gear (the larger gear)? b/c when i spin the larger gear w/ my thumb, it doesn't turn anything.

    at the very bottom there is a smaller rod that goes in the shaft near the servo it also has a set screw see if that is tight if you still have problems there is alot of people here to ask and they are very friendly http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_50...mpage_2/tm.htm

    RE: Exceed G2 problem

    that screw is tight too. but, now that i noticed that small rod, it seems like it moves a lot when i tried to tighten that one screw, does that mean that small rod is broken? do you know how far up that small rod goes? maybe that small rod broke somewhere in the bushings?

    RE: Exceed G2 problem

    thank you, Andy. I'm at a loss. all the screws are tight though. how is the upper gear connected to the main shaft? that is where the problem is I think. i'm obviously a newbie, but i don't want to take this to a hobby shop and be charged $100 for a simple repair. Thanks for your help.

    RE: Exceed G2 problem

    If i hold on to the main rotor tight with one hand and try to spin the main gear clockwise with another hand, this should be locked and not possible to make the turn since the main gear is locked into the main shaft by 2 hex screws. The hex screws are located under the secondary gear. If I remove these 2 screws then lock goes away.

    Please make sure these 2 screws are not stripped.

    here's another observation: if I spin the main rotor clockwise the secondary gear spin along with it but the main gear doesn't turn because this is the helicopter's autorotation created by the one way bearing.

    RE: Exceed G2 problem

    Thanks for the resonse. If i hold the main rotors tight w/ one hand, and turn the main gear w/ the other at the same time .....the main gear still turns freely. Its as if the main gear is still threaded to the motor gear, but nothing else.

    RE: Exceed G2 problem

    In that case I'm pretty sure your grub screws are are stripped or the assembly that hold the grub screws. Please replace main gear by getting part 50H08-32

    Thanks
