Hello,
I flew my JR Venture 30 today and it went great. One thing that was strange though was that after about the 2nd tank of fuel, I accidently slipped on the throttle and got about 7 feet in the air...I landed it ok, I had training gear on but it was still a little rough. Before the landing my blade tracking looked good but when I finished flying, It looked as though there were almost 20cm-25cm between the double blade. Could my rough landing caused this tracking problem? How can I fix this problem? (is there any simple way to do it?) THANKS

The stock Ventures do not have thrust bearings in the head, I believe it is common for Ventures to have blade tracking issues. Mine did it until I installed the KSJ thrust bearing kit. From that point on, the blades stayed in track no matter what I did. If you landed real hard, it may have deformed the spindle, because the Venture has a spindle made from some pretty soft steel. With an OS 46 on mine, I bent the spindle doing some hard 3D manuevers.

ummm

I am thinking either spindle, or most likely you messed up your dampners , i would say take your spindle out and roll it to see if it has a woble or bend in it! and if it does replace it, if it doesn`t then it is probably the dampners , so all you have to do there is replace the dampners!

hope it helps

thanks!
