  • Symptoms:
    • Starter coupling does not last long. (CA3018)
    • Hex adapter from the starter is also rounded
    Reasons
    • Starter coupling is made of a soft metal.
    • Hex starter is sliping at each start and round the starter coupling
    Cure:
    • Change the part CA3018 (new one will not last longer)
    • Buy a real hex adapter with a one way bearing like this one:

      Which will last forever, and throw away this kind:
    • Eventualyyou can buy the aftermarket part

      Some people has reported good result with it, but it is expensive. Buy this prt only if you want a metal clutch.
    Attention:
    •  

  • "Added a 1/4' long rubber tube (from the xcell fury for example) onto the spindle center to give it a pivot point just like the Fury has. It stiffend the head some and it will still hovers great."
    (by d-n-jensen )
  • You have some problem to remove genuine screws on your caliber 30. They seems to be made of a very soft/cheap metal.

    Cause?
    Head screws used are Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS). Regular metric screwdrivers will not work.

    Possible solutions:
    • Buy a set of JIS drivers from Heliproz/Cyberheli/www.custom-rc
    • Buy stainless allen head replacements.
    • Buy an upgrade kit at www.custom-rc

  • verify
    • Thrust bearings in the rotor head installed properly (not reverse)?
    • Radial bearings in the head not damaged? -> change them
    • Bearings in the blade holders are moving -> loctite the bearing or replace blade holders, or buy &39;upgrade&39; metal blade holders
    actions
    • Grease the dampener rubbers, this has prove to cure some woof and poof on raptor 30v1

    • Swashplate, suppress a lot of slope found in the original one.
    • Metal fan, The Correct do not seem to have a better cooling effect, wait till QuickUk release a better version.
    • Metal clutch bell,
    • ...
    • Other upgrades are not recommended since in case of crash the energy will be release elsewhere, bend metal, stripped gears, break more.

    "Do not make the mistake of buying a cheap 30 size and adding $1000 of upgrades! buy a 60 size helicopter"(Curtis Youngblood). Upgrade page is HERE

    1. Training gear may be causing vibration, try to reduce their length, or use a hulla up (instead of a X)...
    2. Paddles may be slightly off-set, realign them...
    3. Verify the tension of the tail rotor belt...
    more soon
  • Hard task because of the canopy, or space left by the frame

     
    example 1  



  • Parts you can store in case of...

    Main rotor blade grips
    Radio Tray frame.
    Mixing arms (CA3012)
    Main gear 90T but it act as a fuse for the main mast (it was in my first crash)

  • Each week, you can add a drop oil in the red places, switch you helicopter on, and do not forget to move corresponding servo while adding oil.  I'm using stich machine white Vaseline.
  • <>
    - Check if the paddles are not quite aligned, replaced the short grub screw in the paddles with a long one like in the raptor 30.
    - Check the main rotor mast if it is not bend...
    - (MMS mode) Wobble (for/aft) when in forward flight with low head speeds (below 1700) Try the frame bracing mod and run the engine with heat at 1850 head speed.
    - Check Michael Prewitt homepage : www.raptortechnique.com this problem has created a lot of threads with the raptor 30, there is a lot of chance, since raptor and caliber share more or less the same design (2 seesaw rubber and free spindle shaft), that you can cure the wobble with the same tricks. (Some report that lubrification can help, and so on). if nothing simple cured your problem, try to flip the head.
