Sam the guys might give me crap for saying this but register in the helifreak forums and check out the tech section with build videos. It's what I used for my 450 build and there are vids for everything including head set ups, esc programing, you name it it's there

Dang, the next time I bend a fearthering shaft I need to make a video. Seems to be none out there.

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

The spindle is bent Sam, the Raptor spindles bend easy with little effort from hard landing autos. Do like Steve said and remove a blade and spin the spindle with an allen wrench and your blade will move up and down as you turn the spindle. But I have also pulled ball links on the rods to and take the blades out of track.

Sam if you broke blades change main shaft and spindle. Make sure you track the blades when done.

The blades didn't have a scratch on them. I replaced the spindle and if I fly today I will try to track the blades.

I thought the difference was the east side just buys new kits when parts wear out instead of replacing needed parts, and tjats why Tom flys that way because he is east of me.

Just because I peddled of two worn out beat up machines (OOPS SORRY JOHN) I mean two fine well crafted gently hovered machines to get one superior machine that makes me a East Coaster. This coming from a guy that has replaced more this year from dirt naps than worn out parts. Well then I guess I'll have to move to the East side of 131 now.

man why didnt I think of that of my vibration issues with my P50. I checked my spindle shaft and oh man it is bent up good. It was from my last crash about three weeks ago. I replaced main shaft and links and the blades are ok I even have steve look at them blades and he says its ok I even bend the flybar back a little but steve told me to chuck em whenever its bent. and last weekend I replaced with new flybar and hovers ok and tracks ok but still vibration badly. So I checked the spindle there its bent too. Man Im learning some pointers and glad to be here on this forum and read and learn as I go. Thanks guys for the advice and will keep on flying and visiting your fields.
