I just bought a used shogun v2 from a fellow RR member and i notice that the rotor head doesn't spin free like my v1 shogun. For my v1, after giving a bit of force on the rotor head, it would spin for like 10 seconds. However, after applying force to the rotor head for the v2 shogun, it would spin but stop immediately. Should I open up the heli and see what's causing the binding or should i "break in" the rotor head so it'd spin freely? The orginal owner said he only ran one pack of battery before selling it to me and i believe him because the heli is flawless. thank you for your help!

Which way are you spinning it? If you're spinning the rotor backwards so it drives the tail, there is much more drag from the belt than on the V1. If spinning forwards (so the tail isn't driven) V1 and V2 should be about the same. Some oil on the bearings (including the 1-way) may help the situation.

The V2 I got came with the swashplate glued together and had to be sent for replacement. You have to consider that the belt will create more or less friction depending on the tension of the belt. You can remove the belt from the pulley and see if the blades spin freely.

If its the swashplate, take the mainshaft out and hook it to a drill and spin it for a minute or 2 while holding the swashplate. Add a little oil or grease to the swash bearing before spinning.
