Got my Logo 500SE kit today. Will get started on the build shortly.

This is my first Logo. Anything to look out for while building? Any general advice?

Question #1. Do I try to glue the main shaft bearing to the frames?

Just do what the manual says and you won't have any issues. Its a pretty easy build. Enjoy!

Be careful
The build and setup is very easy and straight forward and the actual flying can be habit forming....so be careful....

The manual was unclear about the direction of the middle/ball section of the thrust bearing assemblies in the tail and head. I followed the larger diameter marked with an X and smaller diameter but as to the orientation of the middle/ball section had to guess.... I placed the open/groove section towards the larger, X marked part of the bearing. Hope that's right...

The three O-Rings per side in the yoke were just about impossible to install dry. I had to resort to greasing them just a bit with vaseline. Hope that is OK?

I never saw the "X" on the larger diameter bearing washer. If you build them wrong inside of the grip, you have major problems on the maiden.

Ask me how I know and what happened
