PostSubject: HBFP Vibrations   Sat May 16, 2009 8:25 pm

I have had a HBFP for about a month. From the beginning I have had vibration problems and tried everything the forums suggested. Today I almost gave up on the Bee when I thought I would do one thing that I haven't read. Simple as it sounds it's tightening the main blades. I read to keep them failry loose so they can seat themselves as the rotors spin up. Not so loose so they move on their own. I have been doing that to various degrees and still bad vibs. After tightening them more than ever before the problem decreased considerably. I have noticed after landing one of the blades would become loser than the other. I guess its from vibration. So I would tighten up and my bee has been stable.
What has been your experience with tightening or losening your main blades? My hunch is that not all bees are alike. Some like it on way, some another. Anyway I am not going to give up my Bee for now.

I like mine about medium tightness. Main thing that they are both the same.

Trust me, you will like the Bee more and more as time goes on, as you learn more about it.

Yes Donnie D I did my best to make sure they were tightened the same and still it vibrated so much I got discouraged. Hopefully what I did today will contimue to help. I can tell I will like the Bee more as I learn to fly it. Thanks for your reply.

Yes I am using training gear. I did take them off to see if that made a difference, but the vibrations lasted. I now have the gear back on.

Check the paddles and make sure that they are lined up correctly. I've had that cause vibrations before. I also have switched to a metal flybar and upgraded paddles. I was going through flybars like popcorn.

Hope you find your vibration, they can be frustrating to track down.

I had the same problem on mine, tried all kinds of tightness on the blades, from so tight it almost stripped the screw holes out to so loose if you sneezed on them they would move. It turned out that the rotor head wasn't flat. I pulled the blades off,then the rotor head off the heli, looked at it eye level and one side where the blades mounted was bent down some, so I heated it up ever so slightly with a lighter, and bent it back perfectly flat and held it under cold water until it was completely cool, slapped the blades and rotorhead back on the heli, spun it up and there was still a little vibration, but those went away when I balanced my blades. But as far as blade tightness, when I fixed the vibrations, I run them very loose, to where you pick the heli up by the tail and they fall to the nose of it. Still no vibrations and it will lift off like a rocket.
