This last weekend was great...possibly the last good 70'ish degree weekend before the snow fall here in the Midwest.

I was having problems with the nose bobbling up and down during tic toc's, forward and back flips, or anything requiring elevator. I tried adjusting the flight gain, but had a very small affect. Then after a fight session, while cleaning, I noticed the mainshaft was a bit wobbly. I could move the mainshaft forward and backwards a small amount. Ha...this is where the bobbling is coming from. The bearing blocks were wearing out. So I ordered a set of CNC aluminum blocks. I received them on Wednesday and installed them Friday night. Saturday I took my Rave out for some test flying.

WoW What a difference that made! The Bobbling stopped and I was able to increase the flight gain back to where it was. Now my Rave is solid once again! Now to re-tune the motor and get rid of that pesky tail twitch!

Thanks P. Johnson!

I noticed mine getting alittle loose as well. I simply opted to remove the bearings and epoxy them into the bearing holders. That improved it greatly and without any extra cost.

What flybarless system are you using? Are you using the TotalG?

Hey WreckRman2,

Yep, that will work also. However, I took a more permanent approach, metal blocks!

I am using the Total-G and loving it. I also have the Beast X and I'm pitting the two against one another. To see which one is better or what the difference is between the two...including programming.
