Ok, I Don't have a tiger, I have a Venture, but this board has more Venture specific info then the JR one, so I'll try you guys.

Basic problem:
Sloppy grips/head

Previous solutions:

Ergo grips
KSJ Thrust Bearings
KSJ Spindle
KSJ Dampers

This solution netted less slop by about 50% and the head seemed stiff. Tracked it and flew it, went out of track. Checked the head, it loosened up considerably.

Tiger 50 Grips
80* Yellow Dampers
Same KSJ Shaft and Thrust bearings

This set-up seemed to be the bees knees, seemed almost slop free on the bench. The dampers feel great, still some minor slop in the bearings/grips, so it seemed. Did a couple flights with some loop, roll, flip action and it went out of track. Check the grips and they are just as sloppy as the ergo ones were, after 2 flights.

Under close inspection, it looks like 50% of the slop is bearing to grip, and the other 50% is bearing to spindle. Does anyone know if the Grip bearings for the Venture are the same ones and the same source as the tiger ones? I'd really like a slop free plastic set-up w/o having to convert to Raptor grips and spindle (though they are TIGHT). If it's just a matter of switching to the Tiger bearings and a new set of Tiger grips, I'd be more then happy to do that...

Have tried another set of blades?

Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would fall off.

i have nearly the same setup that you have on my ven 30 as well and same problems with a new set of tt550 blades. iv'e been jacking around with this setup for the past 3 days trying to get the tracking worked out. tiger bearings are no different than jr radial and thrust. iv'e found out that tiger blade holders are same in strength as ergo holders. in fact i threw some spare ergo holders on my tiger. what i found was that i needed to change all ball and links on the short upper links and spool up to hover speed then let disc slow down and tighten the piss out of the holders for the blades. been flying two nights so far and the blades are staying in track. hope this helps. brian

Are you talking about the tightness of the blade in the grip? Mine are pretty frigging tight already. Right where they should be. Maybe the rumored 6mm Spindle for the Tiger will be slop free? Or am I getting my hopes up...

pretty friggin tight may not be tight enough. really friggin tight is where mine are. not to get too technical or anything but i am talking about the blade holders, the thing that everyone calls "grips". the grips are actually the things that you glue to the blades. the holders are the things with you bolt and bearings. hope this helps your problem. it did on mine for know. brian
