Clicking from main shaft area- anyone else have this?

All,

I maidened my GLOGO this past weekend - what a great flying model.

After the first 5 flights, I'm noticing a clicking noise coming from the main shaft area. It was first apparent as I was spooling down, but I am also able to replicate it on the bench when spinning the rotorhead. I can both feel and hear the clicking. The model was built exactly per the manual, and I'm wondering if anyone can advise what the issue may be, or if this is normal, and I should just fly it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

please try and loosen the tail belt (tail boom) so the belt is more loose or does no longer mesh with the pulley, and try/listen again ... one cause could be an overstretched belt.

Kind regards

Never had this exact noise before. But my intuition tells me that its probably something to do with the belt drive. As eddi sadi try to loosen the belt and see if it still makes this noise. I had a clicking noise like this once before on my Logo 550 and it ended up being a tail box bearing that was damaged.

Hopefully can sort the issue quickly!
