Death Clack

Death clack is a term used to describe the upper and lower main rotor blades colliding. This is often found in modded heli's that are too fast for the heli's design. The way I cut down or fix it is with teflon tape, but I was wondering if anyone has a better solution?

carrb offers a kit with an extended main shaft that should help but i feel as if the same could be accomplished by using a main shaft replacement from a slightly larger syma copter...ive tried searching but cant seem to find exact dimensions...so far all i've found is that the s107 main shaft is either 73 or 78mm i forget which so one slightly longer should be perfect. only thing is i tried to change the shaft in my helicopter yesterday and could not get the gear off the bottom...i felt like i was about to break something

 

btw how did you use tape to cut down on death clack?

I see heli's at ----- with different shaft setups that certainly look extended but not shafts that indicate extended. Longer would seem to achieve the same.

There should be a pic in the first post showing the tape. Put the tape where the blade mount pivots into the rotor head. I've since removed the teflon and used regular scotch tape. It' a pain really. Too much and you lose too much yaw. Too little you get death clack. A happy medium seems to be less tape and the shorter blades from other helis. Right now I'm using the shorter blades from the S800G. A longer shaft would be ideal, I think.
