Gears are seating in. If you put your thumb and move it does it rotate without binding?

How were the first flights?

It does not bind. I figure the gears are setting in but was not sure. A fellow pilot claims he never saw that on his few Varios.

I only hovered it to trim her and handed it off to another better pilot and he flew it around abit. He reccomended to add a little expo and off to the new proud Vario owner Rocco.

The did great and I had to leave a bit. When I got home the weights order arrived. Went back to the field and added the weights and Rocco hovered it and took off his hands yelling LOOK hands off. I took him I will not rebuild his Vario due to stuipd stunts.

He told me to fly it but I refused since it's not mine. Once it's setup I'm done, unless he is having problems.

I have to add, PUCKER factor was high!

On the first few flights, that is normal. It is nothing to worry about.

Very good job done!

If I were you, I would clean off the white debris and see if it has finished wearing in. Not good to leave in on there anyway.

Put a light coat of vario titanium grease on the gears and that will take care of it.
