The Oblivion does not come as a kit. There is no manual. You can not purchase any Oblivion parts anywhere. This page shows you how to succeed anyway.

SUPPORT OBLIVION DEVELOPMENT

If you feel this is heading in the right direction and you would like to support the project, prototyping and future enhancements, this is your chance. I have no commercial interest but will appreciate donations of course.

BUILD INSTRUCTIONS

Tools: 8mm & 4mm reamer, 2mm hex key, file

  • Use 4mm reamer to widen the holes for main shaft
  • Use 8mm reamer Use the reamer to widen the blade grip to fit the bearings – repeat if necessary
  • Critical: Use file to reduce SLS shims around the spindle shaft if needed. Mounted blade grips must move freely and without any resistance. If not done correctly, blade tracking will be off, resulting in heavy vibrations
  • Mount head as shown in the image. Critical: Pay particular attention to sequence and orientation of all bearings and shims
  • Dremel off the top of the LYNX main shaft, until there is 1.5mm material left between end of upper bore and end of shaft. Alternatively, use a grinding machine
  • Mount Jesus-bolt and counter it with an M2 locknut
Tools: File

  • Use sand paper, metal file or dremel to roughen the inside & outside of center bearing, swashplate inner- & outer piece
  • Apply a small amount of Uhu plus endfest 300 or CA to the roughend surfaces. Fit the bearing into the outer swashplate piece, followed by the inner swashplate piece. Make sure there is no residue of glue seeping into the bearing. Often it is better to wait until the glue has dried and then remove any residue
  • For setting up the swashplate in your flybarless system, set it to 140 degrees. If you are doing a “free” swashplate setup, set ch2 & ch3 distance to 100% and ch1 (elevator) to 78,53%
  • Due to the completely rigid head construction, you might notice a slight tendency of control crosscoupling between elevator and aileron. It is therefore recommended to virtually rotate the swashplate +5° to eliminate this tendency. This means forward elevator also moves the swash slightly to the right. Apply -5° of virtual swashplate rotation (counter-clockwise)
