Don't lose the spacer ring that sits on top of the gear.

Don't over-tighten the jesus bolt. This can mis-shape the gear and cause wobbling.

Set the gear mesh well.

Lock the door.

And hope they don't have blasters.

do you mean set it tight? With my nitro car I used a piece of paper between the gears to set the spacing, should I do the same on the king or just set it tight??

The strip of paper thing works. You don't want it TIGHT 'cuz it'll sap power from the motor and batteries and maybe overheat and over-wear components. About 1/2 mm of play is good. Spin the main gear counter-clockwise with your thumb to make sure it has good contact and can move freely all the way around. You can get away with a little more free play if you use straight-cut pinions; a little less if you use Align-type tapered pinions.

well a quick test hover this morning and it will fly. But it is way out of wack and as far as that goes I think I have forgotten any skills that I may have had as I am way out of wack too. But it will fly wooo hooo.
