Chaos 600 and UH-1N RC Aerodyne

Just took delivery of the 600 size UH-1 with a chaos 600. Upon trying to assemble the frames, the tail boom mount and main shaft bearing holders are wider than the supplied spacers and tail rotor drive gear bearing holders. Basically there is no way to assemble the frames with the parts provided. I read in another build thread that the fuse was supplied with additional spacers because the Chaos is wider than the TRex, but nothing in either kit will make this combo work as is. Anyone have any ideas? I can probably get longer screws and make some spacers, but I bought these on the advertisement that they work together with no issues.

Contact RCA before going any further. That should have been your first choice. I can't help you in any event as I have not built either unit. I am pretty sure that you should contact Cliff only and he should set things straight. Take care.

Tried calling them, but they had gone home for the night. I'll see about it tomorrow, just have to try to get them early enough.

Talk to Cliff. He'll hook you up. He took care of me when I needed help.

Well, I put in a call the other day to RCA and seems there is a spacer kit, but on the particular model I chose th emenu option wasn't there. For the white version it was, but not the olive drab. Parts on the way.

Tried to reach cliff. I did have a issue with them too. They send me a mh-6 fuselage with out the weapon, then they send me a used cracked weapon that i think they took them from a displayed model.

Do you have the special designed side frames that lower the tail. If so, are these parts in Red a sloppy fit? It affects the gear mesh when assembled.

The bearings have to be replaced onto the tail drive shaft, on is larger than the other. The bearing come out of the tail gearbox, and you either have to take the brass gear off or drive the pin out of the plastic gear, slide the bearings in their proper spot and reassemble the drive shaft and gears. The bearing holders have to go along with the bearings as well. The middle holder is a must, I just left off the top one until I got it installed in the frame
