I've put silicone grease on the inside of the blue dampers and the hub pin. After moving it around a bit, RaptorTechnique says "You should be able to turn the shaft easily with your hand."

Just how easy is this meant to be? I can turn it with my hand, but it sure isn't 'easy' - i.e. it's smooth but it requires a decent amount of finger torque to turn.

Is this OK?

If you put your hex driver in the bolt in the grip it should be pretty easy to turn it(not "spin freely". I can't imagine getting my fingers in there to try to turn the bolt with my fingers.

It wont free roll my any means, but It should be free enough to be unable to break the blade grip free without using two wrenches (one for a backup to keep the shaft from spinning)

A bad day of flying is better than a good day of work
