When doing the fuel tubing mod, I had some problems with the fuel tubing riding up onto the spacer. So, I decided to try a variation of the modification. I use one o-ring and a vary thin (approximately 1/16 inch) piece of fuel tubing. The problem is even with such a thin piece of fuel tube, I'm still getting tail bounce. If I back out the screw from the feathering shaft a few turns, I can get it adjusted right. I assume the proper adjustment is to just eliminate tail bounce. My question is, will the screw stay put with only loctite or does it need the added friction of being tightened into the shaft? I'm not too keen on loosing a blade in flight. Also, for those using the dual o-ring head, are you tightening the screw fully into the shaft even when using three o-rings? I just want to make sure it is ok to fine tune the head dampening with screw adjustments and that the blade grip will stay put with only loctite on the screw threads.

Thanks.

I do something a bit more extreme but with heavier carbon blades it works out very nice.

Each of my grips have 3 bearings in them. 1 of the standard blade grip bearings and 2 3x8x3 tail case bearings on each side of the standard bearing. I use one washer on each screw and one o-ring with the stock spacers.

Try it you might like it!
