Hey,
I just bought the MicroHeli CNC Head and Pro Tail, and when they arrived, they were already assembled. Can anyone tell me if I should take them apart and apply some thread lock on all the screws, or are they good to go as they are?
Thanks for the help,
Tom

You need to secure the pins on the 'S' or 'Z' forks on the Pro tail. They have been reported to drop out.

I glued the ends with mine using Alridite Metal and it has been working fine for 20 flights. MH recommended CA. Other people have recommended repacing the pins with a nut and bolt. Do a search and decide what you what to do, but do something in case it parts in mid-air.

EDIT: There have also been reports of the tail pulley coming loose on the tail shaft. I ran some Green Loctite around the sides and into the grub screw of mine.
