Just been doing some maintenace on my R90 SE and I've found some black dust that seems to of come from the Metal Elevator Lever (P/N PV0429) There is 0.8mm of play where the lever sits into the flange bearing. I'm sure during building the heli the bearing was snug fit with no play...

So...Just wondered if anyone else had seen this issue?!?

Loctite worked great for me. It will be difficult to remove, but I have no play.

I actually replaced this "upgrade" with the stock plastic piece after the lever loosened up too many times.

Check the Raptor 90 3D arm. It is a split design that will allow you to tighten. That looks like a better alternative. You will have to look at the manual at http://www.acehobby.com
