Slop in Vigor head
got a standard Vigor, seems to have a lot of slop in the blade grips. I can grab either of the grips and move them up and down probably close to 1/8". This is in the grip not talking about the damps. Is this common or do I have something wrong? Just noticed it but dont have time to tear apart, just wondered if this was the norm?

Bearings are fine turns out the blade grips I guess are worn?? Not sure how that would happen but there is a small amount of clearance between the bearing and the plastic area that the bearing sits in. Not a lot maybe .020 or so. Do the plastic blade grips get old and hard and open up from the movement of the blades or any other ideas. Guess I will just get some new grips.

You need to glue the bearings in with some JB then you will never have a problem under load or a crash the bearing bores in the grip will worn and the bearings will get loose also your blades will never seem to stay track

I to JB weld the radial bearings into the grips. But care has to be taken while you are doing this, or the bearings will be ruined. But it does solve this type of problem. The thing that sucks is after the damage is done. Your grips are as well.Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

Thought about the jb weld, Guess it wont hurt to try. Except if it doesn't work I will have to buy all new bearings as well as grips.
