Blade holder side play
As I said, I'm not an expert. I did notice that the blade holders on the Freya are different parts, however, I just thought there might be some similarity in fit and tollerances. What ever "normal" is, the original blade holders were definately much looser than the replacements, and it did solve the vibration problem, so my guess is that something wasn't right. The other point I wanted to emphasize was the use of some sort of glue to secure the bearings and Tail Housing. I just find it hard to believe this is standard assembly practice. I'm guessing, but I could imagine a situation where they noticed things were unusually loose at the factory, and this was their sollution to "get it out the door"?
Again, I love the Hirobo products when they're running, and I had absolutely no problems with my Freya kit. I was just curious if this was an isolated incident, and I was the lucky winner, or if there are other people out there with similar situations with the ARFs.
