Don't use the red thread-lock! You will never be able to get the screws back out. Go to Ace, Home Depot or Lowes and get some blue thread-lock.

You should only use the red on things that you never want to come out, like when putting a swashplate back together or attaching the tail gears on their shafts (both are already assembled in a V2 kit, so you shouldn't be using the red on ANYTHING).

MMike... I should get two batts in my order-- the thunder power + the align that comes with the kit.

Gravydrive... thanks for the tip on the red TL.

BTW, i read over on trextuning.com that the "tail boom clamp still doesn't stop the boom from being pulled inward causing the tail belt to go slack." Does anyone have any suggestions to circumvent this problem? Should I be concerned?

NEW V2
You may want to upgrade the head servos to HS 65MG as they hold up better when you fly into the dirt. They also have good torque with robust mountings that fit the V2 frame quite well.
