Well I finally dorked my Fury last weekend, still not exactly sure what happened. Anyway I seem to be having a problem with one of the blade grips. I have the Metal blade grips and one of them does not rotate freely when I tighten it up to the main blade axle. I replaced the following items post crash, main blade axle, Dampener O-rings, and the radial bearings in the blade grips, I did not replace the thrust bearings. It does not seem to matter which blade grip I put on that particular side it still has some binding, but will work freely on the other side. The C-clips are seated properly. I have a very thin shim washer right next to the dampeners, then one that is about .10, then the c-clip then another washer about .03 then the bearing, then spacer, thrust bearings, bearing, and bolt. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

make sure the grip bolt is not bent, it is possible the grip itself make be slightly bent.

Does anyone make metal blade grips for the Fury? I see the Tempest has cool looking metal grips, will these work on the Fury?

thanx/B

Yes there is a set of metal blade grips. MA sells them as an upgrade.

The blade grips are not bent, I think the shim washer between the c-clip and the first radial bearing is too thick, I replaced it with a thinner one and the blade grips loosened right up. This still puzzles me as it was the same setup I was using before, maybe the blade axle was just slightly shorter.

I just experienced this blade grip tightness problem and I figured out that the single M3x5 screw on the one side of the grip was actually slightly over 6mm. It is too long and when tightened down it binds on the spindle. I added a small washer which took up just enough space to allow me to tighten the screw without it hitting the spindle.
