Okay one more thing... Do you mean is there play when I hold the grips? I mean, are you asking if it kind of jiggles? And if so, what can I do to prevent that? Or tighten it up?

My take away from that video is that some of these come though requiring sub-trim. That's different.

when you have it on the table and the blade grips wobble vertically you can add shims and pre-load the head more. Though I am not sure how tight a DFC head needs to be on a 130x Though the biggins like very, very slop free heads.

Part of the problem sure, but to get to that much vibration I would say it isnt just comming from the additional trim issue. Though It might make a mechanical issue more noticeable

Maybe he should video it without trim as well, though i would guess there are a few issues involved. I like to verify that my heli's are mechanically correct before I move on to anything else as it makes trouble shooting much easier.

Also, some of the mechanical issues could be because of these mods (most likely is) I just installed the DFC style head and tail mods.

Do you have the radio programmed for CCPM? This helicopter doesn't use any mixing.

You are right. Leave the sub-trim and he should be good to go.

I just got a larger monitor and that didn't help.

I sat here looking at the pics looking at my heli. Back and forth. They looked identical. Dummy, you have the slipper installed. Mine rotate opposite as stock, stupid me!

I'm having an issue replacing the tail boom on my 130X and I'm wondering if anyone can offer a bit of guidance.

I've managed to separate the tail boom from the main body, and the torque rod is out of the tube. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the tail boom separated from the rear tail assembly. The pictures below show the two parts that I can't get separated.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Pull really hard. If you can't get a grip and the boom is shot use pliers and grab the boom and wedge the tail case off.

Thanks for the help guys! Do you have a link for a slipper clutch for the 130X?
