Started my 450 build after 10 8 years - Help
« on: August 23, 2018, 11:20:15 AM »
Following the videos and manual i started to take apart the head to add thread lock and lube  and there here we go 5 min in the build and i cannot loose 2 screws. Now it seems that the alan screw head stripped , 1.5,mm key is loose and 2mm is to big. do i have to unscrew it its very tight on both sides?

Although it's unlikely maybe it's standard and not metric.

If they are that tight that you cannot undo them, I would be leaving them alone.

As for the Alan Key not fitting it, it's more likely the end of the tool is sheered / rounded off slightly.

If that is not the case, try using a Hex Key instead.

i did build a copterx 500 some years ago and had similar issues, they use cheap screws which are softer and the inbus was too small. they also used red threadlock on the top where the screw broke during the process of opening  :b0708:

..won't be the last issue in the build i guess.

i ended with lots of align parts and scary and frustrating moments. i don't know Tarot Quality, but i have seen lots of satisfied People around the Forums.
good luck with the build!

Use your heat gun or the ladys hairdryer to take that stuff apart first.
 It really helps .
 I was kinda hoping it would be better by now guess not tho good luck with the build.

Opinions vary. Some say it attracts dirt. But I always used a dab of light machine oil. The environments I flew in were never that dusty or dirty.
