Hirobo Sceadu 30 Tail Boom Question

Hi all,

I built a Hirobo Evo Sceadu 30 from a kit. My question is: The tail rotor and stabilizer blade is canted at a slight angle to the left (When viewed from the rear, the top of the vertical stabilizer is canted to the left as is the the tail rotor assembly). Is this normal?

The tail boom is keyed so it can't be mis-aligned. I also removed the tail boom and swapped ends with the same result.

No this is not normal.
Do not attept o fly this thing.
You need to loosen the 4 bolts on the frame that holds the boom secure. Then twist the boom until it is parallel to your main shaft (vertical fin) then re-tighten the 4 bolts on the frame . Dont forget to check the tention of the belt at the same time.

I agree. This is not normal. I have the Evo .50 which is almost identical to the .30. Even though the boom is keyed there is play in it. You may have to loosen the bolts on the frame and rear gear box to get enough play to make it even.

Found out from Hirobo on RunRyder, that there was a batch of defectively cut tail booms sent out...I'll dremel the keyhole and make 'er fit. Hirobo is sending out a replacement boom, i'll save it for the crash kit.
