I have a used Tsurugi which had served me very well over the years. Recently it had developed some problems which i am unable to solve (Note. The configurations were not changed since the last flight). When i turn the starter (with the correct orientation and connections), the whole rotor wants to turn as well. It was as if the whole rotor is now 'connected' to the starter shaft. Could it be a problem with the clutch or the 1-way bearing on the main gear? Is it possible for the clutch shoes to have somehow broke and now is stuck against the clutch bell? If I turn it in the opposite direction, the clutch doesnt engage.
I have 2 Nexus and a Shuttle which when i turn the starter cone/shaft slowly, the clutch stays disengaged.
I couldnt take apart the heli cause it is in a almost_epoxied_shut Jetranger fuselage body :-( . I think i am gonna have to cut open the fuze soon.
