imagine how many of us telling here about the tail vibration issue and i can figured out that the turque tube is the main issue here cause its flimssy thats why they recommend to quickly push the throulte in halfway cause of this as i always doing mine doesn't have any vibes issue while hovering in the air, what i did is swash grommet mode,i ca the C gear,i added a bearings on it side from( a main grip blade bearings of mcpx)on the tail case,( must ca the othe next to tail slider) i put also a half grommet canopy of the mcpx of the tail servo linkage and also the tail slider linkage. i flew my 130X in stock since i bought and 37 fligth on it without issue.

What a piece.. Then I installed the second one and was very careful about the RPM's to catch the vib early and balance the tail blades before blowing the shaft out again. I got it balanced to where there was no vib up to 40% throttle (I run 100% at midstick in Nor mode) so I felt it may be okay. So I took all the way to 100% and again the light vibration caused the shaft to blow out.. Unbelievable. So I went through 2 new sets without ever leaving the ground.. Are you kidding me???

I reinstalled the stock tail shaft and grips (they are still the original ones from day one). Balanced the blades and all is well again. Should have know by now...If it broke, don't fix it.
Yep.. I made the same mistake.. Lasted 1/4 of a flight.. threw a blade and shaft bent.

I have the tail slider and bearings and they are good. But I got them before the rakon stuff was available.

I kept the slider, swash and tail box and those seem to be pretty good. Just took her out for some mild 3D and everything was pretty solid even doing a couple of tic-tocs on my HP08S version.

BTW, if you do use the metal tail box, make sure you loctite everything. Especially the tiny screw that holds the pin for the tail pitch control lever. It will work its way out if that tiny screw is not secured.

Can anyone recommend a good quality, micro pinion puller, and the best place to get one? I'd really like one that has the ability to accept different shaft diameters so I can have one puller, and use it on different motors. I've seen them from $10-$50, but I don't know which one is good quality...I want to pull the hub off this tail shaft and drill it out a tiny bit and glue it back on...SQUARE, so I can fly this darn thing!!

Meanwhile...I'm enjoying my nanoCpx!!!

Here's one...is it any good??

http://www.amazon.com/Gear-Puller-Se...ref=pd_sim_t_4

Or this one...http://www.amazon.com/E-Flite-Gear-P...ref=pd_sim_t_1

Thanks!

I have the E-flite one and it serves the purpose. However, the 1mm pin on mine has snapped (luck I bought 2 of them at the time) due to so much use on motor pinions.

The other one does not have a pusher pin small enough to do work on these micro helis. I have on of those as well and I had to grind down the 2mm to 1mm to be useful.

I destroyed a bunch of stock parts by putting loctitie on the screws. it made the plastic crumble apart.

That will happen if you get in on the plastic. I'm referring to the all metal MH tail box. There is no plastic on it.

Do you still have to use the stock plastic lever arm on new aluminum pitch slider and tail case?

Just got home with my new 130x!!!! The V911 is getting old. Can someone point me to the tame-down settings for my 6xi? Any thing I should check before the first flight?
