s question with the blade grips. once all tightened up on the feathering shaft i have noticed that the grips when turning them are notchy. if i loosen the end bolts back abit it gets a little better with the thought that tightened right up as the end bolts should be on feathering shafts, its creating too much pressure on the grip bearings causing them to get notchy. anyone else had this problem. these end bolts on the feathering shaft should be tightened up completely with no backing off.

yeah done that big ide at centre side and small out to grips with open side of bearing case facing grips.
..............

now im really p.....sed. i put the flybar through the sea saw and it got stuck on one of the small bearings in the sea saw. it wouldnt budge back out so i could measure equal distance. the small bearing came out of the sea saw stuck to the flybar. i heated it up so i could slide the bearing off.. no it wouldnt move now the bearing has fallen apart with the centre of the bearing still stuck on the fly bar.
its a great start

You have to put down the hammer and pick up a beer for a build like this .

And the bearing ,call curtis he will make it right . Thats why you bought a rave and not an align . Great customer service !!!! I bought mine new off ebay and had a main bearing block over counter bored . Called him and the part was at my door in a few days .

I would be the person you would contact regarding this type of situation. I am very sorry you are having these issues. I will e-mail you about this shortly. Likely in the morning. I am in the middle of something, but we will get you helped out one way or another. The blade grips are likely tight because the dampers are sticking out of the head just slightly. This usually happens when gluing them in. What I do is I push them in with a 1.5mm driver after they are in the head to fully "seat" them. Be sure to leave the spindle in the O rings while doing this. This releives the pressure, and stops the notchy feel. The bearing in the seesaw will just have to be replaced. We will figure out how we are going to do that. Not sure how, but we will work it out in the morning.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.
