Nice pictures Eugene, I can see-I can see again.

White is right, but as Intergrity said why bother now if it flies right now with the TX switch reversed.

The belt is wrong.
You have to make a half twist in the belt to get the tail blades moving CCW.

Correction... 90 deg twist in the opposite way that you have now. So that's actually a 180 deg twist to the current situation.
(though I guess you actually know what clearprop was trying to say)

Sometimes my thinking is "wrongly twisted".

REALLY? The WK Manual?

You know, some of this is why i made a build log in the first place.. I mean, its got to be better than that.


Custom V450 - Parts Build & Mods



The belt attachment to the front drive pulley is covered in the 3rd section "V450 Airframe Assembly & Mods"

Not for nothing, but i also dug this image out of there. It might have helped when you had the blade grip issue. Maybe not, but it might have.

My apologies.
I looked through your build log, but couldn't find a diagram like that.
I did find a description of how to twist the belt. I think it said, "1/4 turn clockwise".

Anyway I think we beat the hell out of that dead dog. Time to move on to the next problem.

Has anyone found any longer downlinks?
