Hi,

I am building my 600N. I found that if i tighten screws that secure flybar seesaw to the head, the seesaw doesnt move freely. Inorder to make the flybar seesaw move freely i have to leave the screws couple of turns loose.

I am scared that screws may come off due to vibration. I tried to remove the bearings and put them properly in the seesaw but no luck.

Please advise on how to attach the seesaw securely to the head and also make sure that it moves freely.

Thanks

Are you using the right screws? They have a shank on them that acts as a spacer to ensure the correct fit...

Yes i am using the right screw. Does the screw has to be tightly secured to the head?

Thanks

The seesaw is put on correctly and not upside down?

tried removing bearings from the seesaw and put them back, no luck.

Do i need to file the bottom of the slot that houses the bearing little bit?

Did any of you have this issue?

Yes, I had the issue when I assembled mine.

The issue is plastic flashing on the inside of the seesaw. When the screw bottoms where it's supposed to, the seesaw rubs the headblock. I just sanded the inside part of my seesaw where the headblock goes through until I could tighten up the screws without any binding.

Yes, I had the issue when I assembled mine. Then I removed the bearing from the seesaw and found it to have a hair line crack on one of them. It’s not like I cranked them down and split it, just the one side was an issue. I will have to order one in the am. Oh well I’m still waiting for a few goodies to come in so what a few more days.

I had this issues building my new one. i had to remove some material from each side of the see saw where the bearings go to get it to move freely.
