Make sure you red loctite the main rotor pitch arm screw, and spread green loctite on the inside of it where it rubs against the blade grip.HeliDirect Field Rep, Synergy N7 w/ OS 105, Torq Servos, Cyclone/ Rail blades

Basically,

You put Red Loctite on the screw that holds the Pitch Arm, and Green locktite to the surface of blade grip and pitch arm where the 2 come together.

Note: Clean the screws prior to using loctite.

Congragulations with your new machine

As already said above, its a good idea to use locktite on the blade grip. - the pitch arm is seperatly bolten on the bladegrip, and its here you should use the locktite.

A thing that you also should focus on, is that some of the small bolts in the kit, for frame are 3-4-5mm long, just so you place them the right place. It can be a bit difficult to see 1mm different in size..

Happy building, and when time come, happy flying

Best regards

Thanks. I got to test fly it this past Sunday. I must I am impressed. It puts the goblin it replaced to shame flight wise.

I used all of my own bolts as I don't like the bolt heads on the ones that come with the kit. I prefer full socket head bolts.

I had two issues when building...
1. The main blade grips would not turn on the spindle at first. I had to use manual force and rotate them back and forth a bunch before they would turn freely. I took the bearings out of the grips to check for trash, but every thing was on with that.

2. The vertical battery tray that connects to the bottom plate wouldn't align at first, and it caused the landing head holes on the sides not to line up. I grinded part of the upper rear tab down 1/8th inch because it was hitting the aluminum price and then everything fit perfect.

Thanks
