Can someone tell me which way the torque tube is installed . The part with the o-rings. There is a lip with 2 o-rings. Not sure which end it goes in first . I cracked it trying to install it. Its centered on the shaft. Does the lip face the tail or the front of the boom and does it have to be glued in place. I was trying to push it in and the bearing poped out of the white peice with the 2 orings. Any help appreciated.

lip direction
push it in so that the bearings are pushing against the plastic ariound the tube. That keeps the bearing from sliding while installing. I have found not use wd40 or any other lubes like that. I use liquid dish soap. the wd40 will swell the orings in time. and the bearing will never stay still. By using the soap it lubes while putting it in but then dries allowing the bearing to be slid in but then it will not move. If you crash and bend the boom and tube. Cut the boom apart do not try to pull out the tube as it will break the bearing holder. If the drive tube is bad cut it and remove the bearing, as the bearing is the same size as blade grip bearings and can be used there.

On top of doing what Rodney posted, insert the torque tube into the boom from the end that is slotted (not from the end that has the holes). Chances are that the o-rings won't suffer as much from that end.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.
