Just thought i would share something that i am trying .First off i tried the fuel tubing trick and it seemed to be alittle more solid but it wasnt working good enough for me.I dont know if it was the way i set it up or what ,however i took 2 bearings off my main shaft of an old hummer( dont know the specs) but it fit the spindle shaft perfectly. So then i applied the fuel tubing method in a different way. I used a thin piece of tubing( Tubing cant be the thick colored type or it wont go inside the head ) then stretched it out with needle nose and slipped it around the outside of the bearing slightly overlapping on the backside so when i tighten everything up it wouldnt slip off in flight.Also used the stock plastic spacers.There is ZERO play in the head .
Cant wait to fly it.

Im using the sparrow head and blade grips but i think this will work on stock head and grips

Part number for bearing is CNE015 at HH website( was wrong its not main shaft but the head block bearing for fixed pitch hummer ).Tubing used was scrap piece hanging around in my flight box . I believe its from excess i had fo my sceadu fuel tank ( Clunk line ).
PM me for pics i can email them to you .
