Here's an interesting conundrum....

I noticed a slight bow in my R60 torque tube during re-assembly, so I decided to fit an extra support bearing. This is fairly common you might say but noticing the bearings were fairly loose on the shaft I decided to loctite the inner race to the shaft.

Have I done the right thing?

Does the torque tube need to "float" at all to take up changes in the boom length or bending in flight?

Yes you are suppose to loctite the inner race of the bearing to the torque tube, not doing this could result in the tube spinning inside the bearing race and cutting the tube it has happend.
