What is the trick to moving the spindle on the nano? I was going to tighten it, but once I saw it was a small hex bolt and I had no way to get to it I just put the blades back on. Anybody know the size of the hex on the bolt or the nut.

Thanks

Use those two little black 'wrenches' that come with the heli.

Ahh neat, I didn't pay any attention to the contents of the bag.

They do seem a proprietary nut/bolt. A very small needlenosed pliers or even tweezers may fit in a pinch.

similar question. I just upgraded to all mh stuff on my nano and now I can't get the mainshaft collar down tight so I have a lot of slop in the maingear (vertically). For the life of me I don't remember it being that way before.
Try as I might, I can't get that thing to slide down the mainshaft. Ideas??
About to go try it out and see if I have any issues.

The spindle was loose, I got 2 maybe 3 turns, I thought the plastic wrench was slipping until it tightened down. I had to pop the links off to get the proper adjustment, I backed it off about a half turn to get a good feel, took quite a bit of slop out of the grips.

I did the same thing when I first got it. They're known to be loose out of the box.

I put a very tiny dab of Elmers glue on the exposed threads after getting it to the proper position to try to prevent it from loosening. It seems to work and still is removable. The spindle does bend fairly easily and if flown when bent causes vibes that in one instance I noticed degraded the threads where the nut was. I could see where it could strip them completely.
