Trex 500 RC Helicopter Blade Grips

Installing the blade grips for your trex 500 rc helicopter is another area where there are mistakes that can be made. In particular great care should be taken to make sure that the thrust races are installed correctly into the trex 500 rc helicopter blade grips. I recommend watching the build videos for a detailed description of how this should be done. However, in brief the thrust races should be assembled such that the race with the larger inner diameter is closest to the head block and the race with the smaller inner diameter is furthest away from the head block.

Before we get to that point we need to install the dampers and feathering spindle into the trex 500 rc helicopter head block. The dampers should be lubricated with a Teflon grease before they are installed. You now have to push the feathering spindle through these greased dampers. There is a risk that you will get grease in the threads of the feathering spindle at this point. In order to stop this happening insert the two screws into the feathering spindle before you push it through and then remove them. Once the feathering spindle is in place the two brass spacers can be inserted onto the feathering spindle and pushed up against the dampers. We are now ready to install the trex 500 rc helicopter blade grips.

Follow the trex 500 rc helicopter manual very carefully or watch how to build video to see how to install the thrust races into the blade grips. Thing is to make sure that your trex 500 rc helicopter have a space washer between the thrust race and the radial bearing in the blade grip. Also make sure that once the thrust race is installed into the blade grip that you can see the word "out" on the thrust race when you look into the blade grip from the blade socket end.

Make sure your rc helicopter have Loctite on your feathering spindle bolt, insert the blade grip onto the feathering spindle and then put the feathering spindle bolt into the end of the feathering spindle and tighten. Repeat this for the second blade grip and then use to hex drivers to tighten both of the feathering spindle bolt simultaneously.

Lastly we install the head button. Put some Loctite on the screw and screw the head button down tightly into the head block of your trex 500 rc helicopter.
