How much vertical play in the plastic blade holders should there be:
play seems between the plastic and the bearings...not in the damping rubbers. I have about and inch and a half at the blade tip. Ideas?

that's why I put a v2 head on my 50. The v1 is really sloppy.

seems the problem is the blade holders not the head. Does not make any problems flying though. Is the v2 head much better or shall I just get a metal head and say %^#$^ it.?

Metal is always better, but the V2 head is pretty good and cheap to replace should you damage any of it

forget the metal head, it just makes crashed expensive and that's the opposite of what a raptor should be. I got the whole v1 to v2 upgrade
for $95 and only replaced the head so far, the frame and clutch will be replaced as needed. http://www.rchelis.com

The metal head is pretty tough to damage in a crash. You can "glue" the bearings in the blade grips to tighten it up.

There should not be any play between the bearings and the blade holder. Is this about new blade holders? I cant imagine that play would develop at that place unless a bearing would be completely broken (maybe might happen with reversed thrust bearings?).
Are you sure it's not between the spindle and the bearings? That should not have play either but I can imagine that the spindle would wear a little over time.

Thick CA the bearings in the new blade holders.That will keep it tight much longer.

You could also put some shims between the head and grips to take out any side to side play. With that and glueing the bearings in, the head will be as good as a V2 head.

V1 Head

I agree with you. I can't speak for the V2 head, but I have already done what you said on advice from "OC Bob" and my V1 heads fly fine.

I never glued the bearings in on mine but I did use the shims which tightened the head up quite a bit. I couldn't notice a huge difference though becuase my flying wasn't very advanced then. Still isn't really

The main thing that makes the V2 head better. The spindle bearings are further apart in the V2 grips than the V1 grips. That keeps the radial play down quite a bit.

Thanks

Well I went and got some more V1 grip as the shop was closing down and they were 3 pound (5$) . Then loctit 221 them in the housing....does not effect the plastic. oops I thought I had glue the head up but no its super stiff with really no play.
Thanks for all the suggestions, will get some v2 metal holsers etc when I can.
