KDS 450Q Questions

Hi All,

There doesn't seem to be a official 450Q thread yet.

I'm seriously looking at this bird and have some questions
1. Where's the one-way (auto) bearing? On the motor?
2. I want to go FBL. Which FBL head will fit?

Thanks,

craig

craig,
The bearing is inside the main gear mouont. If you want to upgrade the rotor head to FBL version, you can try their 450SD FBL. They are compatible.

I checked for several times on their website, but i have not found out some pictures of 450 heli FBL head. But the news shall be true. One of their pilots updates the rotor head.

Hi,i just serached some detail of KDS.
The one-way bearing is on the Motor gear, you can check. Not on Motor or main gear, it's different with other type.

The FBL, i knew they have Ebar now, and the FBL head seems start producing now also. Let's looking forward to it

I'm finding MyRCMart a bit slow right-now, so I went with a Chaos 450.

I'll get the KDS450Q later, once there's a FBL head for it. I really like the complete belt-drive.

I'm finding the KDS 450 line-up quite confusing at the moment. There seem to be several flavors of 450 Innova, the 450S and 450SV, the 450Q(belt), 450QS(belt tail).

Looking at the pictures posted by Nicki, I see that there are only two upper swash ball links are in use. Those links are both the swash driver and control links via a set of mixing arms. Looks to me like there will be significant torsional loads placed on both the link-arm bearings and the arm-pivot bearings. I wonder about the durability of this set-up.

Yeah, but over how many flights? If he's done 300 - 500 flights without changing anything, then I'd be interested.
