Do any of you current owners have any tips/tricks or things to watch out for or wish you did differently in the build? Also if you have a link to the manual that would be great since I can not find one on the blitz site.

Its an easy build. Just make sure you follow the manual very closely, evey thing you need is in there.

One area to watch for:

Make sure that you use epoxy or green loctite on the bearing that the auto hub goes into. If you do not its really easy to get a space between that bearing block and split coller when you set your crown gear mesh. If this happens the crown gear main shaft and head will move up and down between the bearing blocks causing damage to the crown gear (this info is in the manual)...

Also all of the pushrods for the tail are cut to length so no cutting is needed. If you think you need to cut the pushrod chances are you have the boom pushed too far into the boom holders.

On the Motion Site a few months back we did an Avro build. The videos are archived so you can check those out if you want to see one being built. There ares some good tips in the videos as well...

I just went to the site and they seem to work for me. Not sure if you tried but if you move the cursor to the right it gets the vid going...

Give me a PM if you have any trouble...

Thanks!!
